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..."

    I got this jacket as a gift for my husband in the Nickel gray color. He was very pleased with the style and comfort of it. His regular size Large fit him perfectly. He's been wearing it to the gym and also when we go out casually. You can't go wrong with the Patagonia Better Sweater line.

        Comments about Patagonia Better Sweater Jacket (Men's):

        I bought this fleece for casual wear in slightly colder climates and as a layering piece for hiking/backpacking/travel. It's not great for sub-48-50 degrees F or windy weather, as it is notably not windproof. But it looks like it would pack up small and would dry quickly on the trail, and it has layered well in casual use with other jackets. I bought the tan color, and both my wife and I really like the way it looks.

        Main drawbacks: the collar can be a little obtrusive, but stands up well enough to be able to forego a scarf, depending on how cold it is. The hemline doesn't cinch, so note that if it's something you generally look for in a fleece layer.

        Comments about Patagonia Better Sweater Jacket (Men's):

        This jacket is great! I saw one in a local hiking store but they didn't have the size/color I was looking for. The jacket is great for wearing around the house or the office. I live in Michigan and it's been a little windy lately and that's definitely an area that this jacket lacks. With that being said, I couldn't be happier. I wear the jacket at work and never feel overheated. I'm sure it'll be great in the spring/fall.

                This is a great jacket to wear around town or around the house. It is a heavier jacket than expected and keeps me very warm in cold weather. Not as technical as some other Patagonia jackets, but a very nice jacket.

                    These Patagonia jackets do run true to size, and our return policy for the holidays means you can return all the way up until January 15! It's pretty simple, too, so you can shop with confidence. Full policy here: http://www.rockcreek.com/return-policy.rco
