The Patagonia Men’s Better Sweater Jacket is an extremely versatile full-zip polyester fleece that you’ll want to wear everywhere. Whether as an outerwear piece around town or a mid-layer in the backcountry, the Better Sweater Jacket is warm and soft. Committed to lessening environmental impact whenever possible, Patagonia utilizes bluesign approved fleece and a low-impact dyeing process that minimizes water and energy use.

The Better Sweater jacket features a sweater-knit face and a warmth-enhancing fleece interior. Zip straight up to the top of the stand-up collar and park the zipper in its garage for warmth and comfort around the neck. The jacket also has raglan sleeves to increase comfort under pack straps and micropolyester jersey trim at the collar, cuffs and hem that keeps its shape.

The suite of features in the Better Sweater Jacket is rounded out with two zippered handwarmer pockets that are ready to protect hands and also has a small zippered chest pocket to stow small essentials.

With a regular fit for layering ease, the Patagonia Men’s Better Sweater Jacket is hip length and comes in a variety of size and color options.

  • Made of bluesign approved 100% polyester fleece with sweater-knit face, fleece interior and heathered overdye yarns; dyed with a low-impact process that significantly reduces the use of dyestuffs, energy and water compared to conventional dyeing methods
  • Full-zip jacket with zip-through stand-up collar
  • Raglan sleeves for mobility pack-wearing comfort; interior fleece wicks moisture

Great buy
Reviewed by Alex - January 18, 2019

Likes: This is the second better sweater I've purchased from Backcountry Edge. Very happy with them both, and they were considerably cheaper than at the local Patagonia store.

Dislikes: It pills easily but a sweater stone seems to work well so far...

Outstanding that crushes competition. Great for layering and spring fall jacket. Very comfortable and can be used in business and causal environments.

Perfect all-round fleece
Reviewed by Joseph A. - November 26, 2018

Likes: This is well fitted and yet roomy enough for layers. I can wear this to the office in the morning, the bar in the evening, and then out hiking or stacking firewood on the weekends. Very versatile, and much more durable than a puffy

Dislikes: Nothing to speak of

nice but big and long
Reviewed by Allen O. - November 21, 2018

Likes: it was warm and soft fleece material and Patagonia brand

Dislikes: It was too big and long for a fleece jacket. I do wear an average fit but the jacket was more than average fit.

Great purchase!
Reviewed by Kevin - October 26, 2018

Likes: Comfortable, form-fitting for an athletic build, and surprisingly warm.

Dislikes: Does not have an adjustable toggle at bottom to lock in heat and create an even better fit.

great casual (even dress casual) sweater
Reviewed by Joseph V. - December 28, 2017

Likes: warm, comfortable, great for layering, love the external pockets

Dislikes: none so far

Versatile Fall Zip up
Reviewed by Ben M. - November 29, 2017

Likes: Love the fitted cut. Can be warn over a dress shirt and be work appropriate or can be warn casually for all sorts of activities.

Dislikes: I had to return the first one I ordered because it runs a little large. I'm 6'2 with a thin frame and the large was way to big. Medium fits perfectly.
