Nice Sweater


Soft, Warm, Color


Does not seem true to size. The arms fit very narrow and tight

Awesome Layer


Super comfy and adds the perfect amount of insulation. I sized up just a smidge so it would fit well over long sleeves and I'm glad I did. It's been great for traveling, camping, and daily wear.

I have several 1/4 zip better sweaters. I wear them daily. I like the fit. I am 5'7" and own both medium and large sizes. When my weight was around 143# I preferred the medium, when I gained weight to 152#, I preferred the large. Obviously the medium feels more fitted, the large a little more roomy in the body.


Pilling, they all get pilling on the arms.

One missing item but customer service was very helpful and refunded me


My sister and I ordered 2 Patagonia sweaters and 1 T shirt. However, one of the items we ordered did not ship. My sister got her patagonia and T shirt but I waited for my Patagonia sweater hoping it would come separately soon, but it never came. Winter passed and I wasnt able to wear it because it never came. However, we called customer service and they were so helpful and nice. The man my sister spoke with, Jordan, was very helpful and refunded us for the missing sweater. Overall, great customer service- responsive and kind! However, the missing sweater was a bummer because it would have been nice to wear/have during the winter season, but now I am just glad I got the refund back at least!

Amazing sweater


Beautiful color and so warm. I'm normally an xs in sweaters, but I did size up to a small since it is a snug fit. It's nice enough to wear to work and still look professional. Can't be the price either!



Amanda C.


Highly recommend


Great quality product and fast delivery





Nice product


Nice quality. I'm 5'7, 145# and the medium fits well. I also own the large and it fits ok, a little more boxy in the body while the medium is more slim fitting.


Wish it had pockets.

GF loves it!


Looks great, awesome color (more of a dark charcoal than black), fits her very well

Highest quality fleece you can buy


One of the warmest and neatest pieces of my wardrobe. Can be used to keep warm on a cool day or just for style too.


A bit pricey, but the quality is amazing and Patagonia has a lifetime warranty.

Perfect 3-season layer


Design / fit, material, warmth Perfect on its own in fall or spring in Chicago, but great as a skiing or other winter layer, too


Not a cheap price point, but definitely worth the quality
