Real Customer Reviews
- Great product, fit only okay
Likes: Quality of the product, appearance/style, durability
Dislikes: Fit is too loose around the waist, even though shoulders and sleeves are right size. Not ideal fit for slimmer body types
- Outstanding pullover
Likes: Great fit, I'm 5'9" 175lbs and the medium fits perfect over a tee shirt or capilene base layer. A lot of mediums are too short in the sleeves for me, but the Patagonia Better Sweater is perfect..
Warm and comfortable.
Pairs well with most pants... I wear with jeans to work and with my fjallraven vidda pro pants on the trails.
- Love the better sweater
Likes: Cozy and warm. Perfect for lounging, but can be worn just about anywhere. I prefer the length and the roominess of the men's version if I'm layering underneath it.
