4.5 Stars

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I struggled deciding between 4 and 5 stars, but decided on 4 because although I love them, I love the retool snap t more. This one is just a little bulkier than I would like. However, it is still uber comfy and soft. Holds up well. I have one from at least 10 years ago and it still is completely functional. I also have one from just a couple years ago and it still looks very new.

I love this fleece!

Super warm fleece. I've used it a bunch and its holding up really well. Fits true to size. I wish I could afford to buy like 10 more

I love Patagonia!

Super cozy and comfortable! You can never go wrong with any Patagonia fleece pullovers. This is a must for the fall and winter climates.

So Cozy!

I got the Wish Tails Big/Craft Pink color in a size small and I love it - fit is true to size and image is true to color. Super soft and cozy - I can't wait to wear it all winter long!

I received this jacket as a gift last year and have used it everywhere. It's great for layering and comes in a variety of fun prints and colors. I bought another one recently because I liked my first one so much. This jacket runs large and fits loose so shop accordingly.

Fuzz Everywhere!

I have never had a problem with any of Patagonia's products, but this year I decided to go for a fun color (the bright pink) and it was a poor decision. After washing, I wore this hiking and it got pink fuzz everywhere (all over my backpack and my car and the blanket I sat on when I reached my destination). I love Patagonia and I love their products, but be cautious when purchasing in bright colors.

This is very pretty sweater, looked great on ..but instantly I remembered WHY I'd gotten rid of several similar Patagonia sweaters-- the ribbon they put in the neck to cover the seam scratches me like crazy. I have sensitive skin that easily welts up with insect bites and clothing can irritate me. I HAVE to wear a turtle neck under the Synchillas or my neck has neck scratches on it. I wish they'd use softer ribbons or even fleece to cover that seam...If your skin isn't as irritation- prone you may do fine. It's a beautiful sweater I wish it had worked out!

Love how comfy and soft this sweater is! The variety of colors and patterns make it great for any style. I usually wear a medium but went with a small since it runs a little large.

Unanswered Question

I am 5' 6'' and I weight about 160 to 170. I usually wear small in Northface jackets but Mediums in all my other clothes usually. Do you think I should get a small or a medium?

Funky patterns!

Love this pullover! Got it for a trip to Whistler...being a Floridian, my sweater stock is low! Comfy, layerable, and looked awesome w my mustard snow pants! I got the Feather Dance print in small...tons of room left.

Funky patterns!

Snow!!! Awesome photo. Thank you for contributing to our community, Emily!

Great sweater, runs large

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs large
  • Size Bought: XS

I really wanted to love this sweater! It is the epitome of coziness and I loved the contrast of the dark gray and pop of bright mint green. I'm generally an XS in most items, but the XS in this sweater was quite oversized. I don't ended up going with the Patagonia Re-Tool for a better fit. If it weren't for the sizing, this would have been a favorite!

She loves it

Gave this as a gift. Super warm and comfortable. Always washed on cold/air dryed and is holding up great.

Large but cozy

I'm 5'10 and ordered a medium sleeves are long which I love

Perfect fleece!

Great everyday fleece and good for layering. I've had mine for about a year now and it's held up perfectly. I got the black with purple trim and it looks great! If they go on sale again, I'll probably get another.

Could be better

    Love the color, pattern and the quality but it runs large. I usually wear a medium but this fits like an extra large especially the arms.
    + I would have loved it more if it had pockets.

    The perfect gift

      I gave this to one of my best friends for her birthday and she absolutely loves it. She is 5'3 120 lbs and I purchased a medium. It fits loosely and comes down just above the top of her butt. It's a comfortable yet still flattering cut, I'm going to purchase one for myself.

      The Most Marvelous and Cozy.

      Yeah, superlatives have seen their better days thanks to a certain political individual, but when it concerns the Snap-T, it's hard not to use 'em. This fleece is magical and downright deliciously cozy. In so many ways, the Snap-T is to me as to chocolate is to most humans.... I think that made sense.

      I inherited my Dad's Ye Olde Snap-T and pretty much live in it, so I had a feeling that I would love the newer version. The 2017 edition is certainly more lightweight than its predecessor. And its much more breathable as a result, too. But that being said, I wouldn't recommend you use it when embarking upon strenuous aerobic activities.

      It does have a boxy / large fit, so don't expect it to offer a contoured look. I can get away with wearing an XS or Small as I normally do with Patagonia's stuff, and in truth I don't have a preference for one or the other. The Small is a little more relaxed, but, that's just the 'tude of the Snap-T! Super chill vibes, yo.

      My only gripe is that the singular chest pocket wasn't enough for me - I'm a big fan of pockets, so I ended up sewing on a rudimentary kangaroo pocket. Turned out alright, too!

      A little note on care (and I'm sorry if this is a Captain Obvious moment), but do not put this in the dryer. At all. Wash on cold (if you must wash it at all) and hang dry.

      New favorite

      This is a great fleece. Very comfortable and versatile. I've worn it to work and running errands and I have only used it on a couple hikes. One of them was on a chilly-windy day and this fleece was the perfect layer to throw on when we stopped for breaks and the wind was strong. Definitely a new favorite. I'm wearing it now.

      Nice Fleece

      Bought this product for my 14 yo daughter. She had been eyeing it for some time so I waited until it was 1/2 off as Patagonia is not cheap. Quality of fleece is very nice, soft. My daughter loves it and wears it everywhere.

      Poor sewing

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

      I ordered two of the fleece pullovers, yellow and timber twist . I kept the yellow but am returning the timber twist because of the mismatch of the pattern along the seam. I learned many years ago in my sewing class, that one MUST match the pattern for quality sewing and product. Therefore, I am returning this product. The quality does not match the price. It wasn't just on this item either. I saw a woman at the grocery store wearing this fleece and her pattern was not matched either. Backcountry! Get quality seamstresses!!!!
