  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: XL

I love this sweater! Great for a little chilly summer day, I would definitely recommend this to anyone! Ive had a couple people ask me where I got it.

Love this jacket!!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Medium

I have the original Better Sweater too and this one is definitely more fitted but I love the length and how flexible and easy to move around in this is. It is perfect for fall weather or works great as a base jacket under something else. It does run smaller than the original Better Sweater so I would suggest ordering a size up.

Not for me

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

This sweater was not for me. The sweater felt a bit frumpy and sloppy on me and the material was not what I expected. This might work great for someone else but not for me. Returned it.

Best hoodie ever for women

    I’m obsessed with this thing, and was actually happy we had unseasonably cool temps earlier in June because then I got to wear this around more often. (I bought it for an upcoming walking trip in Ireland.) I love the fit, which is close to the body but not too much so, and the hood fits great even for my large head. The knit on the outside feels sturdy and like an actual sweater, not fleece, which makes it look much more polished. I just love that this is a functional, good looking piece that looks great on a woman’s silhouette, and if they had this is more colours I probably would find some reason to get another one!

    So much pet hair

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small

    I really wish this weren’t true but this is a magnet for pet hair. I bought the black and after a few wears, I was walking around with enough hair for a new dog to be formed on my sweater. It’s comfortable, warm, and with the stitching doesn’t look like a traditional fleece. I still wear it but only around the house and yard as I’ve not been able to satisfactorily remove enough pet hair from it.

    Love It

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    I gave this to my sister-in-law as a gift and this is what she had to say: I absolutely love it. It looks good dressed up, casual, or for outdoor activities. It is great for summer as a light jacket and does a good job blocking wind and keeping you cozy.


      Fit's great

      The Better Sweater is the best!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: Small

      Bought this on line a few days before leaving on a cross country road trip that involved 32 days (February into March), 14 states, many chilly nights in campgrounds, wet weather, and temperatures ranging from high 20s to low 80s. Wore this through most of it, blustery weather and just slightly chilly mornings. Sizing was spot-on. The hood and the thumb holes are great. My husband was so envious at its utility aand versatility that he ordered a men’s and had it shipped to one of our stops. No regrets! Fits great too - not box-y but not forn-fitting. Easy to layer.


      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: large

      I recently bought this jacket and I was really excited about it. I received it in the mail, opened it, and to my surprise it's very thin and doesn't seem to be made of a very good material. I'm concerned about how well it will hold up, as well as the zipper seems very flimsy. It is however a very soft and comfy material, but I can't justify the price for what it is. I will be returning the product.

      Comfortable and Warm

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
      • Fit: True to size

      Pleased with purchasing this jacket. I got it for my sister who loves Patagonia and makes a great addition to her wardrobe. The fleece is quite thick making it great for adding warmth to your body without sacrificing fashion. The fit is comfortable and accurate sizing.

      Comfy and Soft

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
      • Fit: True to size

      I got this as a gift for a friend and she was thrilled. Here are her initial impressions:

      This jacket is perfect for fall and winter weather. It is so soft and comfortable. It keeps me warm while hiking but is light enough that I can wear it on my morning jogs. It looks nice and presentable for going out and socializing. I got the "Drifter Grey" color and it matches with most everything I wear. It also looks and feels super nice layered under my black Patagonia puffy jacket. Overall it's a high quality jacket and I would definitely recommend it to others.

      Love this jacket

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: medium

      Got this jacket for cold fall morning runs. The fits says athletic and it is fitted. I got a medium and I'm 5'8'' and a size 10. The medium fit is just right but i knew the it would be fitted. If you don't like it fitted i would size up. Great warm fleece mid layer as well
