Patagonia Synch Fleece Poncho - Women's

Poncho perfection.

Fleece aficionados need not justify the Patagonia Women's Synch Fleece Poncho's overall awesomeness, and while your significant other may think that you own one too many fleeces, little do they know how magical this piece truly is; it is a fleece poncho with rad colorways, after all. The Synch Fleece Poncho sports the same fabric as the classic Snap T, yet with a poncho twist and relaxed fit that makes it all the more perfect for lazy afternoons when you're stuck at Camp Four waiting out the rain. The oversized hood and storm collar provide added coziness when the sun slips behind the horizon, and the two hand pockets store necessities like snacks or lip balm. Not that you needed any technical explanations or reasoning as to why this poncho is just about near perfect.

Worth Every Penny

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Size Bought: XS

Bottom Line: This is a car camping, lounge-around-the-house, run-your-errands staple.

The material is the same fleece-y goodness as the Snap-T pullover, so know that it's hella cozy, durable, and warm. The collar enhances your defense against cool evening air, while the hood ensures that you're really able to snuggy-down-in-there. I kind of felt like a fleece-wrapped turtle in it, in the best of ways of course.

I love the zippered pockets and the fact that you can create sort of "mock sleeves" if you will with the interior snaps - or go full fledged poncho if you care to. The full-length zipper is really convenient if I want to use the poncho as a lap blanket.

Initially I was thinking this piece would be sort of limited because it's really bulky, but after taking it car camping I can't believe I ever went [camping] without it. It's a really lovely companion while I sip my morning coffee, and it's super convenient during the evening. I run really cold, so I like how I can layer a light jacket underneath it without feeling like a giant marshmallow. Also, my favorite part is how it doubles as a blanket for my mini-heeler when we're cozied up by the fire.

I bought an XS and it fits perfectly - for size reference XS is in Patagonia items is pretty true to fit for me, while a size Small lends a bit of wiggle room.

Basically, this is one of the most magical things I have ever owned.... aside from JK Rowling's Harry Potter books.

Cute and cozy!

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

This is the perfect item to have as a casual but cute throw over for those cool days or just for lounging around the house. The material is very warm and great quality. I love that it has a full zip so I don't have to put the poncho on over my head. The hood is great for keeping you extra warm! I went with the nickel/mogul blue and love it because its a nice neutral color that goes with everything! I get compliments on this poncho all the time. I love it!

Warm and Cozy!!

  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: XS/S

I love this thing and it is warm! I have a different opinion than some other reviewers on size though. I'm 5'6 138lb not fit (but working on it) I ordered the M/L. Which was nice, but felt more like a blanket on. I ordered the XS/S to be sure, and it's perfect! The M/L will go back!

Best gift ever!

If you're looking for unique and stylish, this is it. I love this poncho more than any jacket ever.

Best poncho ever

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

I wasn't sure about the poncho look initially but then saw this in cute grey with teal trim and decided to give it a go. It's so comfy and warm I would probably wear it every day if no one noticed. It's great for casual wear and running around town, the hood and high neck block the chill. Probably will be gifting this to friends and family this Christmas

Perfect Ponch!

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

Got this for my wife who wears it daily, whether she admits it or not. It is the perfect piece for running around town or hanging around the house. The high-snap neck and hood are the perfect addition for extra warmth.

New Favorite

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: M

My wife loves this poncho. It is amazing for hanging out around a campfire to running errands around the city or just staying warm on the couch. The higher neck with snaps keeps wind out without being to tight. The oversized hood stays up while walking. She loves that the sleeves have snaps. This helps with arm mobility so the fabric doesn't get bunched up.

  • Size Bought: M/L

This poncho is my new go to for EVERY Trip. It's comfortable, light weight, and WARM!

It brings the softness of the Patagonia Synchilla fleece with a fun new twist, DOUBLES AS A BLANKET! With large zip pockets, and snaps on either side of the back to create large arm holes if you need them.

I have a M/L which is great because I wanted it to be really big. I love the hood that hangs off the back and kept me super warm in the rain. Loved the sizing as it was big enough to reach around myself and my dog, I unzipped the poncho just a little from the top and my dog could poke his head out.

The Pattern is super fun and maybe my favorite part, and I constantly get complimented on it whenever I wear it out!

LOVE LOVE LOVE My Synch Fleece Poncho :D:D:D
