This was my first purcahse from Patagonia/Altrec and I must say that I am more than pleased. The 1/4 better sweater was a gift and my wife now wears it every day. Thanks ALTREC!

should be named the best sweater
Yeah budddyyy! They accurately named this sweater, it truly is a better sweater. Nice, warm, and received lots of compliments on it. It is fuzzy on the inside and that was a nice surprise. Love the sleeve pocket too.

I bought this as a Christmas present for both myself and my daughter. I am 5'7"/125 lbs and took a small, which fits perfectly. It's fitted without being tight and I still have room for a t-shirt or thin t-neck underneath. I LOVE this sweater. Having worn it all winter, I can now say after nearly six months that it launders beautifully and still looks new after quite a few washings (cold, low dryer briefly/mostly air dry). My 13 yr. old is petite (5'2"/95 lbs) and found the XS to be a bit roomy since she prefers quite a fitted look. She didn't wear hers nearly as much but I'm sure she will wear it more next winter after she "grows into it" more. We both got the gray, which is a nice "soft," heathered color that goes with just about anything. For me, it's a bit pricey but well worth the indulgence.

Great looking, warm and comfy! Sleeves are a little tight, may need to go up a size. Washes beautifully.

Better Sweater is just that.
I purchased this sweater for my daughter (who has recently become a patagoniac) and she loves it. It's a little dressier than her Re-Tool and has more of fitted style. The wool like exterior without the itch is an incredible design. Like all Patagonia gear it's sure to last for years.
