  • 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.

Here's what other sites are saying:

The Patagonia Better Sweater quarter-zip pullover sweater that combines the aesthetic of wool with the easy care of polyester fleece.


There is nothing sheepish about this refined wool alternative. Better Sweater(R) fleece has a sweater-knit face that slides easily under a shell and a soft fleecy interior that can be layered or worn next to the skin. Supple micropolyester jersey fabric trims the wind flap, cuffs and hem. With a stand-up collar and quarter-length zipper (with garage), zippered left-sleeve pocket and princess seams on the back.


Combine the aesthetic appeal of your favorite wool garments with the easy care and reliability of polyester in the Patagonia Women's Better Sweater 1/4-Zip Fleece Jacket. A flattering slim fit follows a feminine line for a stylish solo look, but it also means this top functions as a comfortable base layer.
