Summary

The Better Sweater is light and warm. The stand-up collar keeps out drafts.

Pros

  • Light
  • Packable
  • Warm

  • None that I'm aware of

Comfortable and warm with a zip-up collar. It was the best garment to withstand the cold and mist of the San Francisco waterfront and out on the bay on a breezy day.

Patagonia couldn't have picked a better name for the Men's Better Sweater Fleece Jacket. After one day in the Better, you'll probably throw out your cotton sweatshirt. After all, why would you wear fleece every day in the mountains and then go back to cotton in town' Despite the casual cut and style, this soft Patagonia fleece easily makes the cut for technical wear. Midweight fleece makes this piece ideal as both a mid-layer and a casual around-town top.
