I own a "ton" of Patagonia wear and this sweater is my favorite! It is warm and stylish. I originally bought the blue and just ordered a black. Great addition to any wardrobe.

Absolutely love this top! Keeps me so warm and yet it's not too thick or bulky. I find myself passing up all my North Face jackets and grabbing this one. Very soft inside!

It’s very nice, except that it is a snug fit in the torso and it's too long for a short person. I usually wear a medium or a small and this one, a medium, is going back. Love Zappos' return policy.

Fits perfect, not wide and bulky like normal sweatshirts and outerwear. Extremely comfortable and simple to throw on with jeans or for a trip to the gym. Will buy in more colors.

Love this sweater! Very well made and nice and warm to protect you from cold and wind. Perfect to wear alone for fall hikes. Very stylish as well due to the fact it is fitted. I am normally a size 4/6 and ordered the small, which fits well with only a light baselayer, but it is a snug fit, so consider a medium if you want to wear heavier layers underneath. However this would also be sufficient to provide warmth under an outer shell for skiing and other winter sports. Love it!

Nice quality welll worth the extra money. Washes easy and keeps the color. Nice length covers hips slightly retains a nice flattering shape when on, doesn't look bulky.

Absolutely love this Patagonia! It is amazingly soft, comfortable, and warm! This is my first Patagonia and definitely won't be my last. I ordered the medium (bra size 34D) and it is perfect. Love the purple color!

After reading reviews, I originally ordered a M. However, because of it's warmth, I never wear a base layer--I wear it as just a sweater--so I gave that to my daughter and reordered in a SM. The purple is my 3rd color. I find sizing and purpose determines your size in Patagonia. I wear a SM in the re-tool snap and, after they changed the styling, a M in the R2, and a M in the down sweater full zip. I am 5'7" and weigh 128. I love everything Patagonia but particularly love ordering it from Zappos. No worry about exchanging, no shipping and no waiting as with ordering on the Patagonia web site. Also, Zappos has great sale prices!! Thanks Zappos--you are my first source for online shopping for everything!

This is so warm! I purchased it as something I could layer for the Washington weather. I was surprised to find it was so warm that I didn't need anything else with it. I will get this in other colors.

This is a wonderfully, warm fleece/sweater that has quickly become my favorite winter clothing. I saw someone wearing it at the grocery store and it looked a bit unusual - quite different from most of Patagonias fleeces - so I was pleased to find it quickly at Zappos and have it for myself in just a couple of days. The quality is excellent as it is with all Patagonia clothing. The color is actually magenta, not purple, as stated. The fit is as expected.

This is a great purchase. Looks great and wears like a comfy sweatshirt. The color is really pretty. I bought this one for my 18 yr old daughter who was always borrowing her sister's red one! I also have this in red. It is an easy go-to in the closet.

I love this as a sweater/fleece combination. It is very versatile. It does run small (tag noted as "slim fit") so I would recommend sizing up. I own a size small in the full zip Better Sweater, and all other Patagonia jackets, but ended up going with a Medium in the ¼ zip. This is great quality as always with Patagonia.

This is a fabulous sweater. I bought my first one in red and loved it. I have since added every other color available. The garment is warm and cozy without being bulky. The fabric is very durable and, after years of wearing my first purchase, still looks new. It is extremely well made. Due to the slim fit (although it is not tight) it fits well under my winter jacket. I would not want to be without my Patagonia sweaters during our northern Illinois winters.

I love this pullover! Purchased it after having great experience with other Patagonia products. I am an avid snow skier/ hiker and this will definitely come in handy this fall and winter season. I have it in the grey color and my only wish is that It had pockets like the fleece but I may just have to get a fleece as well! I am 5'3'' 34C and got the small which fits perfectly.

Extremely comfortable! The fleece is soft and perfect for cozy winter days. I have no complaints, and this seems to fit much better than the North Face brand (for those of you who have a longer torso like myself).

I love this fleece! It's pretty lightweight, which is nice for the spring and I wear it all the time. Flattering cut, even though it's a little loose and comfy. I am 5'2', 98 lbs and normally wear a 0, 2 or XS. I bought a small in this though and I think it fits comfortably.

The sweater is wonderful as a spring or fall coat. The fleece interior is soft and it washes beautifully. The arm pocket is large enough for a phone and my chap stick! I may get it in black as well!

I love this sweater. It is very soft , very warm, and the fit is slightly fitted. It was a luxury purchase for me as I rarely spend that much on a sweater. It was well worth the cost.

As an Athletic Trainer it is important for me to stay warm without too many layers. This really is the better sweater. I purchased the black and plan on buying one or two more!

This is an awesome sweater. I already had one of these with a full zip (green). Nice long sleeves, good contour fit, and softest fleece inside. It looks expensive.
