I couldn't have asked for a better sweater!
Patagonia products have always impressed me. I own about 6 of their jackets and I love all of them. This is no different. The jacket has a great knit outer look, and the inside has the soft, textured fleece that is great at keeping you warm. The workmanship is fantastic as with all of their gear. It's also not too heavy, and so I love wearing this jacket to walk around and run errands in the upper 30s weather here in Virginia. I couldn't have asked for a better sweater.

A versatile piece
I have been very pleased with this purchase. The fit is terrific. Not too clingy like some pullovers, it has just enough space in it without being too big. Very warm as long as there is no wind. It does not have any wind protection, but it isn't meant for that. It is sharp enough that I can wear it to work without feeling under-dressed. I would and probably will purchase another in another color.

I love this sweater. Its perfect for running errands to keeping you warm in the back-country. This kept me warm and cozy as an outer layer with just a t-shirt down to around the mid 40s. I'm 61, 185lb, 32waist 42 chest and the large fits great. I like the fabric used because it really soft inside while also having a beautiful durable knitted look outside.

Great sweater.....very comfortable and high quality. I have a full zip and prefer the 1/4 better. Have noticed some wear and tear after using this for a while.

Excellent gift
I bought the Better Sweater for my husband for Christmas. He loves Patagonia products, and this gift was no exception. He was thrilled with the warm brown color, the thickness, the wind resistance, and the overall look. His only complaint is that is can become quite warm when you're indoors, as he was on Christmas day and when worn to a few parties in January. He suggested that its role is more appropriate for outdoor use or for really cold days. Overall, excellent buy!
