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 my first Better Sweater Jacket in 2008 and I still have it. I now have it in 3 colors and am going to get the black soon. It's my favorite item in my wardrobe in the winter, so warm! It does run small, by the way. I am a size 14 and I wear an XL and the sleeves are quite long, which I love personally because I have long arms. The one thing I don't like about it is that after awhile, it pills. I'm talking after a few years of wear, but it can be fixed easily with a clothes shaver.

    Not a slim fit!

    I read that this jacket had a slim fit. It doesn't. I am 5'7 and 130 llbs. The small was bulky and the sleeves were long

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

      I love the look of this product, really cute and good materials. It was much tighter than I expected for a size Medium. I am 5'7.5 and about a size 4 in womens sizes. It fights but most likely I could not fit anything thicker than a t shirt underneath. Overall good buy, although it had a strange smell to it when I first opened it from the package.

        I gave this to my daughter and she loves it! It's a great addition to her wardrobe. I bought the birch white which is really more gray than white. It goes with everything and washes well.

          Bought this better sweater jacket for my daughter on her 14th birthday. She absolutely loves it. The teal color is very pretty and no one in her school has it. It's very versatile and can be combined with a down vest if another layer is needed. We've only had it a month but haven't seen any fabric pills thus far. She wears it every day and it has held up without any flaws.

              It is comfortable, soft and appears to be of good quality. I have only worn it a few times so I can't say how well it will hold up. Cons it bunches at the mid-torso stomach area, so not as flattering as the 1/4 zip better sweater. Pockets are very soft. It appears to be well made and hopefully will last a long time.

                    In the cooler months, I wear this everyday and it looks great. So comfortable and stylish. What I love about Patagonia jackets and vest, they are so light weight but so warm, they don't weigh you down.
