The Men's Better Sweater 1/4-Zip by Patagonia is a rugged yet soft 1/4-zip fleece pullover that combines the aesthetic of wool with the easy care of polyester fleece.

Patagonia's plush Better Sweater styles adapt to their surroundings, effortlessly making the transition from the metal shop to karaoke night. Pleasingly styled and technically adept, they have the timeless look of wool and the durability of polyester. Heathered 9.5-oz yarns create an easy-wearing, moisture-wicking, bulk-free piece with a handsome face and a soft fleeced interior. The stand-up collar has a zipper garage; raglan side and back seams make for a classic shape. Micro-polyester trim at the collar, cuffs and hem wicks sweat, and a vertical zippered chest pocket secures keys and cash.

Which Patagonia fleece jacket is the best fleece jacket for you?

"This fall, I’ve already had three friends send me an email or text with the same question: “Which is the best fleece jacket?” It can be a difficult question to answer, because there are so many fleece jackets available, and because the best fleece jacket for you will vary widely depending on what you want to do with it..."

    This is truly a great sweater! It looks great with jeans, khakis, and just about anyting else you match it with. It is very very comfortable and stylish. The fit is great, even after washing it a few times. I wear it out on cold days, without any kind of shell, and it keeps me plenty warm. My sweater got hung on a nail but after washing it I really think it went away! The snag is not visable! Defiantly worth purchasing if you ask me.

    The Better Sweater is an attractive, casual garmet that looks great over a button down shirt. It's a stylish fall/winter piece; perfect for a ballgame or casual party. However, the Better Sweater is not as warm as I had hoped it would be. Patagonia's Snap-T pullover is much warmer and almost as stylish (in a throwback sort of way). Date the Better Sweater, but marry the classic Snap-T.

                Comfortable, casual and did I say comfortable? I wear mine around the home office or on the trout stream in cooler temps. Its a slimmer fit for me as I usually wear a XL. like that so I can layer it under a shell or wading coat. I'm 6'4" 190 and the L fits me perfect. I like mine so much I bought a second one.

                  Great feeling jacket. I didn't dry the first time I washed it just didn't want it to shrink it fit me just right. It is very warm and cozy but its downfall is probably it isn't very resistant to water but I am not the most outdoorsy so I don't have to worry about that too much.

                                I'm the same size and I prefer the Large... but you could comfortably wear either. It comes down to your chest circumference and how broad your shoulders are. Take a look at the size chart, and if you're on the upper end of the range for the Medium I'd size up.

                                PROBABLY the large, but it depends on how long your arms are. See previous answers!

                                Skinny boy! I'd go with the large; otherwise, you run the risk of the torso length and sleeve length (especially the latter) being too short.

                                Mallory, I just measured an XL for you and the "center back length" from the top of the collar to the bottom hem of the jacket is exactly 31 inches. If you subtract the collar height and just measure from the collar seam to the bottom hem, it's exactly 29 inches. Hope that helps!

                                Tough call. I don't think the M will be long enough. The Better Sweaters, despite being a "regular fit" Patagonia style, tend to be a pretty slim fit so I think I'd go with the L here.
