Men's Performance Better Sweater® Hoody is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too slim for a slim guy I'm 5'-7" and 120lbs and am slim in the upper body. I wear an XS in all Patagonia clothing and find that with this hoody, I can only wear a tshirt or thin long-sleeve underneath without the armpits and torso area feeling too tight. The fit is very form-fitting and is perhaps geared for more technical climbing use, but I use this as an everyday hoody. The fit is definitely slim around the arms (especially the armpit), and torso. That said, the fabric is great and provides a good amount of warmth without being overly bulky.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice looking jacket but the arms are super tight! Unfortunately going to return it or give it to someone it might fit better. I bought on sale and not sure I want to go to XXL because the rest of the jacket will be too big.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Sleeves are SO LONG Loved this jacket the instant I put it on but didn't keep it because the sleeves are SO LONG. They were all bunched up around my wrist and up my forearms. If I pulled them all the way down, they almost cover my entire hands. I'm a slim 5'8" and a small fit like a dream except for the sleeve length. Those who say that this jacket is too slim fitting...well, it's slim fit. The normal Better Sweater line is Regular Fit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good hoody but the arms are a little small I bought this over a month ago. I've worn it skiing, around town, to work and sitting outside when the evening is a bit cold. Overall, this is a really good hoody. The deep pockets hold my phone, my ski map at new ski areas or my keys well. The hood is a great feature. A little cold breeze? Hood is up and you're warm. There is only one thing that I don't like. The arms are a little too tight for me. I have muscular arms just like my father. Otherwise I'm fairly slim. No problems around the waist or chest; but regardless of what I wear under this, the arms are tight enough that I have to physically hold my sleeves to keep them from rolling and bunching up under this. A little more room would be great! I'll keep it though and wait on one of my boys or my girls to steal it. (Just like they do with the rest of my Patagonia gear.) If you have large arms like me, be sure to buy your other Patagonia gear with the thumb loops. It helps!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from tight in the shoulders I wanted to love this hoody but the sizing is weird. I am a pretty average sized 6'0/180 and got a large but will have to return it. I know it's supposed to be slim fit but i thought that meant the waist. The waist ad length are fine but the shoulders/upper back/arms are super tight/binding with only a t-shirt on underneath.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very high quality For reference, I am 6'3" 190lbs. Bought this in a large and it fits perfectly. The material is very nice and it has kept its form very nicely. Very happy with this purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Hoody I've had the hoody for about a month and simply I love this thing - basically haven't taken it off. Perfect over a t-shirt, does well over a flannel. I don't know I'd go much deeper than that with it though. I was a bit skeptical because of some of the reviews saying how slim fit it is, but I really don't find it to be that. I'm 5'9 180lbs and the Large is about perfect. It's for sure more sweatshirt like than (on me) than something truly fitted. That said, I am a cyclist so my version of slim fit may be a bit different. Once it gets beat up (in few years) I can for sure see this as a staple of spring/fall MTB/Hiking/Running wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great layer I have used this a lot this past fall as a quick layer handler down jacket for cold commute and nights or as a light evening layer after yoga or couch Netflix. It is a form a fitting so if you don’t like a tight fit this is not for you. The hood is great when needed and stays out of way when don’t. Arms are tight so can’t layer much underneath but soft inside so hasn’t been needed. Biggest conn is my short beard gets aught in zipper soften and pulls. Annoying but not a deal breaker for daily use
