Summary

Doesn't really catch your eye in the store, but trust me, you have to try this on. I am HOOKED on these sweaters!

Pros

  • SO comfortable
  • Understated and classy
  • Very warm
  • Very durable
  • Suitable for casual or work

Cons

  • More colors!!!
  • A bit expensive, wait for sales or hit the Patagonia outlet

I saw these while strolling through the Patagonia outlet in Salt Lake City. Wasn't an eye catcher, more of a "I could use a black sweater" thing. I tried it on and fell in love. I then frantically searched the racks to find more. I bought several that day and have bought several more since.

Looks like a sweater, but has a super comfy fleece lining that makes you feel like you're wearing your favorite sweatshirt.

Works well for business casual environments/board meetings, casual wear. Super cute with winter skirts, sweater tights and boots.

The men's small fits pretty similar to a women's medium. It's just a little less fitted through the waist and looks a little more casual than the women's.

I love Patagonia quality, but am frugal and usually wait for sales.
