After a month on the road, 15,000 vertical feet of climbing and days of monsoon conditions, Patagonia's correspondent writes that her Better Sweater 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-in and a zippered left-sleeve pocket.

  • Made of warm, midweight polyester fleece

    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.

    The item was received in good order, however, I paid for expedited delivery, but it took a week to deliver. To be fair I ordered on Wednesday around noon of New Year's Eve and didn't receive until the following Tuesday. I ordered other items for my daughter's birthday from other stores - all other stores were able to deliver by Saturday - only Rock Creek took a full week (disappointing after paying for expedited shipping).

            This jacket is great for throwing on to run out and do errands or layer under a jacket for frigid winter temps. This is also flexible enough to go jogging in on very cold days. It's a nice update on traditional fleece because of its "sweater like" exterior but warm fleece interior.

              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.
