bluesign® Approved Fabric

Patagonia has worked with bluesign technologies since 2000 to evaluate and reduce resource consumption in our materials supply chain, and to assist us with managing the chemicals, dyes and finishes used in the process. bluesign technologies, based in Switzerland, works at each step in the textile supply chain to approve chemicals, processes, materials, and products that are safe for the environment, safe for workers, and safe for the end customers.

In 2007, Patagonia became the first brand to officially join the network of bluesign® system partners.

Any fabric you see that’s bluesign® approved offers the highest level of consumer safety by employing methods and materials in their manufacture that conserve resources and minimize impacts on people and the environment.

Fair Trade Certified™

We pay a premium for every Fair Trade Certified item that carries our label. That extra money goes directly to the workers at the factory, and they decide how to spend it. The program also promotes worker health and safety and social and environmental compliance, and encourages dialog between workers and management. Fair Trade is one of the first tools we’re using at Patagonia to raise workers’ wages, improve their standard of living and move them closer to earning a living wage.

Women's Better Sweater Hoody is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cute but not the best This fleece is pretty cute but not the best quality. After several washes the inside fleece gets worn out fast and isn't that soft at all. Also, the zipper starts to curve and not lie perfectly flat against the body anymore. But overall it is still a decent product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Provides excellent warmth, with some drawbacks I have purchased several of these hoodies over the years, finding them the warmest of any of Patagonia's ladies' fleece. I like my clothes loose, am 5', 90 lbs., and buy it in the medium. (I do need to roll the sleeves up once, but, like I say, I like my clothes to be roomy). The main reason for my "average" rating, however, is that I have just sent a third hoody back for repair, as the zipper has again broken. This really shouldn't happen, especially when the hoody costs a considerable sum. The inside fleece also tends to become somewhat hard and scratchy after multiple washings, over time. In cold Wisconsin weather, however, I find the Better Sweater indispensable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from So disappointed! :( I purchased this coat with hopes it would be the superior quality I have experienced with Patagonia purchases in the past and this sweater is poor quality!!! In a very short time, it looks worn, and I won't even wear it unless I'm around the house, etc. I have worn my other Patagonia fleece and jackets for years, without the ' worn out' look, and it is also not very warm or comfortable at all!! Purchased 2 months ago, have never worn it out of the house, I take very good care of my clothes, and this jacket is already in the goodwill pile unless Patagonia gives me a refund so I can buy something else! Do yourself a favor, don't do it, get the lightweight down sweater instead!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome I love everything about it, it's perfect. It's a great layering piece and the hood is an absolute plus.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect fit, great for hiking, boating Finally, a fleece jacket that actually fits my body type! I'm tall (5,8) and slim and struggle to find tops that are long enough but don't drown me. The length of this jacket (size small) sits low-hip (perfect). My arms are longer than others and the sleeves go right to my hands. I can very comfortably fit a long-sleeve shirt underneath. I love that its soft and fleecy on the inside but clean and classy on the outside. I live in northern Canada, this jacket will see a lot of fishing and hiking (and everything in between).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great, durable sweater Purchased this hoodie for a trip to Amman, Jordan. The sweater is great: well-made, warm, durable, many components I was looking for. Admittedly not the height of fashion, but I have plenty of other Patagonias to fit that need! I am a 34DD (~size 6 on top usually, almost always a M in Patagonia Re-Tools and Nano Puffs) and this swims on me! I really wish I had gotten a S, but at least now I can use it for layering. Overall, great sweater, if not a roomy fit.
