Patagonia Women's Better Sweater Jacket
Class up your collection of outdoor clothing with the stylish, cozy and versatile Patagonia Women's Better Sweater Jacket. This full zip fleece jacket updates the classic look of a zippered cardigan sweater with the wilderness-ready performance of polyester fleece. A rich, sweater-knit exterior texture differentiates this winter jacket from other technical clothing and a fuzzy, soft fleece interior insulates you against the cold. Perfect as an outerlayer to wear on a colorful fall hike, layer this piece under a winter shell for extra insulation when temperatures drop. Smooth micro polyester jersey lines the wind flap, cuffs, hem and pockets for a luxuriously soft feel against your skin that will also wick moisture.

One of Patagonias Best
I have been using Patagonia gear for 15+ years and this is one of my favorite items. They have taken their great quality and comfort and made a fantastic update to a classic fleece. The slim fit cut is modern and flattering; it is just as appropriate running errands around town as it is a technical layer. The side zip pockets (and one on arm) are useful and are lined with the same warm inner fleece layer as the body of the jacket. This jacket also hits just below the hips on me which is very useful for most activities, i never feel like i am tugging at its hem. All said, everyone in my family has one (or a variant) of the Better Sweater line, you cannot go wrong with such a versatile piece.

This jacket is really warm and soft and typical of the excellent quality expected from Patagonia. I also liked the longer sleeves and length of the jacket. One con - the jacket is not windproof.

Love this jacket!
This is a great jacket, very comfortable, warm & stylish! What more can you ask for? I also love the color-I got the lemon-lime and it is a great color!

I bought a black Better Sweater to replace an El Cap fleece I used for years and lost. The Better Sweater is a little more substantial and definitely more stylish. I am 5'9", 140 lb, and the small is perfect for wearing over a t-shirt. If I wanted to wear it over a bulkier long-sleeve shirt, a medium probably would be better. I prefer the fitted style of the small for wearing around town, as well as hiking. I have a long torso and found the Better Sweater to be just the right length, so it might be too long on someone with a shorter torso. The sleeves are the perfect length for me.
