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.
