Patagonia Synchilla Snap-T Fleece Pullover - Men's
PatagoniaSynchilla Snap-T Fleece Pullover - Men's

As classic as it gets.

The Patagonia Men's Synchilla Snap-T Fleece Pullover is about as classic as a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. And like a solid PB&J, the Snap-T is designed to withstand just about anything and everything you throw at it—including jelly from the sandwich itself. This classic fleece goes back to the first days of Patagonia (think 1985) so you know it's built to last. Additionally, the heavyweight fleece offers steadfast warmth, while the four-snap placket easily unsnaps, so you're able to cool off quickly should the temperatures begin to rise. Y-Joint sleeves provide unimpeded mobility in the shoulders and arms, and the chest pocket keeps small necessities secure and close at hand.

Synchilla

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

I recently bought a synchilla and it has instantly become my go to pullover. It is really soft and comfortable. I like that it’s light weight and super warm, it reduces wind chill as well. I spend a lot of time outdoors, and while I wouldn’t call this item “packable”, it’s definitely my go to for sitting by the fire at base camp. I bought a medium because I wanted a more athletic style fit and I got exactly what I was hoping for. I’m 5’8 170lbs, if your looking for a more relaxed fit, go with your true size for sweatshirts. See you in the wild places!

If you live in cold weather...

If you live in a place like Maine or New Hampshire ... in the winter and you want to stay warm ... this is the right piece of gear for you. Very warm.

Rust Never Sleeps

I've been wanting one of these for a while. Used to have a hand-me-down that was cool except that it was purple and I hate purple. So anyway, at half-price buying a new one (not purple) was a bit of a no-brainer. I went with the Roots Red, which is definitely more of an orange. Basically it looks like rust. Pretty autumnal, but that's fine by me.
Regarding sizing, which seems to be the white whale of synchilla satisfaction, I think it depends on intended use. I wanted something to wear over a t-shirt, or over a t-shirt/long-sleeved collared shirt combo, but also something that could fit under a coat, denim jacket, whatever. I'm typically stuck between a medium and large in all clothing (I can go either way, you know?) and chose to size down and go with a medium on this. It's perfect for the aforementioned uses, and a large would have been much too baggy. Sleeves are a good length, a bit bulky in the underarms, and the elastic is a bit tight in the waist, but that's how it is.
Bonus is that Patagonia is a cool company. Backcountry isn't half bad either!

Wear it all the time

This was my first fleece, and I can't imagine why I would ever need anything other than the Snap-T. Super warm, great quality, good fit/design, and reasonably priced. Patagonia makes great stuff and this is no exception. Highly recommended.

Great basic item

Great basic item to have in your wardrobe. Works well for layering and the quality seems great.

Have to Get Another

  • Size Bought: Medium

There are two things I don't like about my Synchilla Snap T Pullover. First is that the arms are a little baggy for layering, so in the winter months, it's most useful as a casual piece. The other issue is that I only have one, so I don't wear it every day. I'll likely be remedying the second problem by buying another. Warm, comfortable, and it looks good just about anywhere.

Just picked up another one!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I found myself wearing my original synchilla so much, I couldn't help but pick up another one! You need some of this action in your life. Trust me.

Synchilla for the Win!

Patagonia does it again. These are my all-time favorite fleeces! I bought the white color for my boyfriend, and it's so cute and cozy! May have secretly bought it for myself! Love these because it will last forever!

sweet

    great gift

    They're popular, but for good reason

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    What can I say? It's a Patagonia fleece. It's gonna be soft, warm, durable, and over time, it will develop those comforting campfire-y, pine tree-y smell that will remind you that you should be playing outside when you're not!

    My New Everyday Fleece

    This Fleece kills it. It's SUPER comfortable and soft fleece that gives a surprisingly awesome amount of warmth. Super stylish too - I can't stop getting compliments on it from friends & strangers alike! My only issue is that I'm really tall and it's not very long and is pretty wide, but that's a style of its own I guess!

    Returned - Fit Was Strange

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

    Although the quality of this sweater seemed very good, I returned it because the fit was odd for me. I am a Medium in pretty much everything, but this was really big and bulky - felt like a Large or even XL.

    Stylish and Warm

    Cool design on this fleece pullover and is extremely functional and warm. The fleece is really comfortable when in doors and as a layer when going outside in the cold and damp Pacific Northwest.

    A great, versatile piece

    I bought this for my brother after hearing great things about it and he loves it. Very comfy and stylish. Can be worn for active outdoor activities or just those chilly days around town.

    Synchilla Snap-T

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: Runs large

    A great piece for all temperatures. I live in Massachusetts and it can look good layered or alone. Have one in black and Nickel/ Navy blue in a Medium and Large respectively. Definitely order a size down if you don't like a baggier look.

    A key Piece for any closet

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

    I gave this as a gift, but have feedback to share. My brother is fairly active, and needed an item in his closet that kept him warm, but wasn't too bulky. The Synchilla Snap-T Fleece Pullover is ideal for those crisp Fall days as a stand-alone, but also wonderful for layering in the winter months. The high neck is ideal when it's windy or cool, and the front pocket is great for car keys, an ID or even a credit card. Ultra comfortable, and versatile in wear. A great item while in route to the gym, on a hike, or even while running errands on the weekend. He's already requested as second one for this holiday season.

    Ummm

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large

    I love the pattern and the sizing is standard snap-t sizing (Medium fits me perfectly but I wanted this one to be a little bit baggy so I ordered Large), but the fabric feels less solid than its previous generations, or is it just me?

    Solid Fleece

    • Size Bought: Medium

    I love this sweater, it's kindof baggy but not overly so which makes for good breathability but also good insulation when used as a layer. I layer this under my Mountain Hardwear Dynotherm, and what it does, particularly in the arms, is bunch up and create air pockets that recreate the properties of down, essentially adding another down layer in the arms and shoulder region.
