With a sweater-knit face and soft fleecy interior for warmth, this go-anywhere jacket for women works equally well as urban outerwear or layered in the backcountry under a shell.
Explore another lively mountain town this winter when you wear the Patagonia Women's Better Sweater Jacket. Combining a knit sweater feel on the outside with a soft fleece interior, the Better Sweater insulates you while maintaining the about-town look of a sweater sold at twice the cost. This fleece jacket isn't just for looks, however, with the stand-up collar as well as a front zipper wind flap to guard against the gusts during chilly day hikes in the hills.
After a month on the road, 15,000 vertical feet of climbing and days of monsoon conditions, our correspondent writes that her Better Sweater(R) Jacket still looks as fresh as the day she started. The wool-like fabric has a soft fleece interior and a sweater-knit face that refuses to frump, and the heathered yarns are dyed with a low-impact process that significantly reduces the use of dyestuffs, energy and water compared to conventional dyeing methods. Full-front zip ends in a garage and stand-up collar. Forward seams on the front and princess seams on the back lend a contoured shape. Soft and smooth polyester jersey trims the wind flap, cuffs, hem and pockets, which include zippered handwarmers, interior drop-ins and a zippered left-sleeve pocket.
Warm polyester fleece meets your favorite sweater in the Patagonia Better Sweater Jacket, dyed with a new resource-saving process.
