Patagonia Women's Los Gatos Fleece Vest

May 18, 2022


Super soft , warm and comfortable, my new favorite.

May 11, 2022

not true to size

I returned this item, which I ordered in the size I wear for most other labels, because it was impossibly small. I was so disappointed.

Super soft and cozy

I love my Los Gatos sweater, but wanted a vest for those warmer days when I just want my core warm. It's in super soft and cozy, like cuddling my cats. :-) I have worn it for walking and even dragonboat paddling in Portland, OR and it has kept me warm. Absolutely love Patagonia and this is a favorite.

May 7, 2022

Warm and stylish

This is nice - warm, quick and easy to put on, stylish with high collar plus warm. Looks great with all my black turtlenecks.

Los Gatos ️️️️

I purchased 3 Los Gatos . Love ️ all of them . One had a terrible odor !!!! (wet dog Smell )Ive washed them and even used vinegar in the rinse so we will see one might have to go back ( my favorite color turquoise) hopefully not crossing my finger . By the way I dont own a dog . I wish the company had better girl colors the drab browns and tan are ... Read Moreso dated ! Thats why I had to order from the used and worn . Cant wear the ugly dark colors . Also the lid Gatos runs tiny . I weigh 155 wear a L tight large (36 D )chest small waist still snug . Also bought a pink to wear w around the house for comfort (XL ) . I never wear an XL In other brands ever usually a medium or small so sizing is way off . Anyway love the vest I now have 5 . I wear them power walking! I ride my bike every day . And w my XL I can layer w a sweat shirt I live on the beach its cool early morning rides . Buy the vest runs .. tiny

I usually wear a small in the coats and vests but this particular vest runs a little small so I had to order the medium.

April 5, 2022

perfect casual staple

Love this vest. super comfy and adds warmth on cool California mornings/nights. I am a 34 D so sized up to medium and it fits perfect.

March 31, 2022

Small fit-size up

I normally wear a small, but figured with a layer underneath I would need to size up. I bought the Medium and it fits like a small. Recommend sizing up at least one, if not two sizes.

March 31, 2022

Love this. One regret

I love this vest. Its soft, warm, and comfortable. I wear it pretty much all the timeeven for Zoom calls while working remotely. Ive wanted this style for years. My only regret is that I waited so long to get one. Want it? Get it today.

March 21, 2022

So soft

This is a great vest! It's really soft with a lovely fit. Adds a nice bit of warmth and looks fantastic. I feel fabulous when I'm wearing it!

March 18, 2022

Warm but fitted

This is a very functional and warm vest; however, it is slightly fitted, perhaps due to the fluffy nature of the vest. Size up if you're in between sizes. I'm usually a 14 pants and M/L in tops and the XL is quite fitted.

March 16, 2022

Warm and light weight.

Very comfortable, goes with many items. I've been a Patagonia customer for several years. Items last forever.

March 16, 2022

So soft but small

I loved this when I took it out of the package but could see that it was going to be small. I could zip it up but it left no room to layer. I wanted to exchange for a bigger size but there were none in my size. Maybe next time.

Response from Patagonia
March 24, 2022

Hi Carmen! Thank you for writing us a review. We're really sorry to hear that the vest was a bit too tight, and that the next size up was sold out. That said, we're happy to say we will be restocking the vest for Fall 22'. Feel free to [contact us]( if you'd like some more information on our back order dates.

March 16, 2022

Too short

Love the style but the length is way too short!

Response from Patagonia
March 24, 2022

We're so sorry this vest was too short for you, Vicki! We're glad you've been able to get it returned. Please let us know if we can be of any further help!

March 16, 2022

Cozy and warm

I run cold in Southern California winters. Yes, I admit Im a wimp. This vest is perfect for the brisk mornings and cool days. Its warmer than my better sweater vest. Unlike some reviewers, I found the fit to be perfect and flattering. For reference Im 34A 52 125lbs and got a small. I dont feel like Im squeezed in, but could see that happening if I ... Read Morehad a larger bust. I wouldnt recommend wearing this outdoors in rugged terrain because of the potential for collecting leaves and twigs in the pile. This vest is furry which I love for my office days. Its super cozy, and the lining inside is so silky.

March 15, 2022

Fun and cozy

I loved it so much I wore it for 3 days straight. Great color. Good quality. Kept me warm and wasn't bulky.

February 23, 2022

Cozy and warm

Fits perfectly! Im in my 50s, average build, D cup chest and constantly cold unless its 72 degrees or warmer. This vest keeps me toasty on cool days and looks great in the grey color.

February 21, 2022

Very warm

Writing on behalf of my mom. She LOVESs it. I will buy myself one too

February 19, 2022

Great vests!

I own this vest in 3 colors now - they are perfect for wearing around the house for a bit of extra warmth in the winter. They are great layering pieces for hiking as well. They wash up beautifully and look nice enough to wear out for a casual dinner too.

February 15, 2022

Super cozy

I love love love this vest. It is a slimmer fit, which I really like. It keeps me warm, cozy and is super stylish. I am very much thinking about ordering another color I am 5-7 and 135 small bust and It fits perfectly.

February 11, 2022

Great Vest.

Super warm and comfortable. Love It.

February 7, 2022

Great vest

Vest is perfect to add warmth without bulk. Wish there were brighter color choices.

February 6, 2022

Practical and WARM

Flattering and WARM! Perfect!

February 1, 2022

Great Customer Service

I wrote in the size/height description for who I got the vest for. She said it fits perfectly. My review is about the EXCELLENT customer service I received when, after returning the vest because it fit too small I discovered after a week of not receiving any acknowledgment of the return I found out the USPS couldn't confirm they shipped it. Ju... Read Morest when I figured I'd be out the vest, Patagonia's customer service, Marc I think his name was, not only said he'd work on his end to contact my local USPS to track the package but sent me the correct size in the meantime. WOW! The best customer service representative EVER! Makes me glad I own 2 Patagonia jackets and why I'm a customer for life. Bob Wackerman

January 30, 2022

Runs small fitted style love it

I am 54 140 lbs and ordered a medium but it was too tight to wear with clothing under do I exchanged for a large which its perfect. Love the style very comfortable and warm

January 24, 2022

Great quality, super warm!

This was my first fleece vest I ordered. Most have been quilted. I always wear a medium in other brands (or sometimes even a small in vests)....but had to exchange for a large so definitely size up with patagonia! The exchange experience was super positive. Very easy to exchange and got the new one Very timely! Great communication with the company.... Read More Very impressed with the service. They know what they're doing! Will order again.....for sure!

January 24, 2022

Super! All purposes!

My wife says is really comfy, it fitted her well. She wears it frequently and liked the texture, she selected the camel color that matches forest green, burgundy and dark / light blue jeans. Keeps her warm from cold wind or cold in the back and she looks amazing with it.

January 22, 2022

Super Small

I ordered this in the XL after looking at the size info and deciding this was the size that would fit me. When it arrived and I took it out of the package my first thought was omg they must have accidentally sent an XS instead of XL. Noit was size XL. Thats how small it looked! I tried this on and it was 10 from meeting in the middle! Now remember,... Read More I ordered according to THEIR size chart! XL is also what I normally order in everything. If this is their typical size XL, then all I can say is that they are not inclusive at all and really dont want any women wearing their clothes who are over a size 8. Wow. So disappointing.

Response from Patagonia
January 26, 2022

Hello Bonny, thank you for leaving us a review on the Los Gatos Fleece Vest and for bringing this issue to our attention. We double checked measurements on the size chart provided which shows body measurements, and then went to check on garment measurements in our database. You're correct that it's not showing up accurately, we have reported this to our web team. The size XL has a 44" chest, and a 44.5" hip which we imagine was what was creating issues for you. It does not look like we'll be restocking the Nest Brown which you originally purchased in XXL, but we will be restocking Birch White, Dusky Brown, Salt Grey, Smolder Blue and some new colors come Spring time. We recommend signing up for [restock notifications]( by going to the product page, selecting the color of interest, selecting the size and clicking on "Join Waitlist" just below that. From there you'll enter your email address and you will be emailed as soon as there are more in stock. With all of that said, we take your feedback on inclusiveness very seriously, and it's something we're actively working on improving at this time. Until we get there, you're welcome to reach out to customer service to double check on garment measurements before purchasing. Thank you, Bonny!

January 20, 2022

Love it!

Reviews said it ran a little small so I went with the XL. I'm 60msomething & a little bit overweight. Fits perfect. Love the lining and overall comfort.

January 20, 2022

Runs very small.

Nice craftsmanship and feel, but runs very small. I was given a small as a gift, returned for a medium. I usually wear a 6-8 in womens tops. Still so tight across hips, can barely zip the medium. There was very little size diff we envelope between the small and medium.

January 19, 2022

Warm and Toasty

this is warm and toasty and I love that it is made from some recycled materials.

January 17, 2022

Beautiful fit and comfy

Looks very nice, warm and comfortable for many daily activities

January 15, 2022

So light and warm

Absolutely love these vest. I have bought many over the years. Could not go through Chicago winters without them.

January 10, 2022

Beautiful but runs way too narrow for an XL

Fabric is gorgeous, but is too slim cut for an XL, which usually fits (in most brands) for women with breasts.

January 7, 2022

Perfect for outdoor dining

Outdoor dining during covid can be a challengepropane heaters help, but its never quite warm enough. Wearing a coat is too bulky and a bit too warm. This vest is perfectlooks smart, keeps the cold off your back and leaves your arms free. Perfect solution.

January 4, 2022

Soft, warm, work appropriate

I wear this in the hospital (Im a plague doctor). It is so comfortable. I like to think its professional enough

January 2, 2022

Gatos is Great

This is my 3rd Gatos vest (partly because the medium I bought is snug w/Winter layersso I can only wear the medium in cool hours of Spring+Fall and partly because I got the birch white and its TOO white!) so this one is perf

January 2, 2022

Super warm

I wanted a vest to wear under a light windbreaker while I walk on the beach. This vest is perfect very warm and comfortable.

January 1, 2022

Too small.

Runs at least a size small and is not made as well as previous vests. I paid extra for quick delivery and it took longer than expected.

December 31, 2021


I/husband purchased a size too small. The models wearing the item were not helpful. They dont help where bust size is concerned.

December 31, 2021

Looks great

It was a gift , met all of my expectations.. great quality

December 30, 2021

Runs Tight

I like this vest a lot, but it is way too tight in the middle. I always wear a medium in everything. But when I tried this on, I knew I would never be comfortable wearing it. I will try the large and hope the top is not too lose.

December 28, 2021

Love @ 1st site

It was love @ first site when I opened the bag. This white vest is a hard to find cold-weather-wear true white. It's warm, snuggly, soft and looks great. Two plusses - 1) Made from recycled material 2) Arrives wrapped in a paper bag - no plastic, no box.

December 26, 2021

Runs small

Id recommend sizing up, as this item runs small. I am usually a medium-large for tops so I ordered the large and could barely zip it. Exchanged for an XL. The item seems well made and very soft. Also, the inside of the pockets are soft and lovely too, a big plus in my book! I may order another color!

December 22, 2021

Very comfortable

Yes I love my vest and just bought one as a gift for a very special family member. It is comfortable and warm and around the house I do not always want to wear a jacket. My family member just was so excited when she found out her gift was this vest. She loved it and this is not the same reaction we always receive on other items we have given her. W... Read Moree were so pleased and this relatives has enough funds to buy anything she wants. She claimed she was going to wear it that night and every day. I bought the blue for myself and also for her. They are easy to keep clean on the gentle cycle and low dryer heat. Patagonia just makes quality products! It does run small so order up a size.

December 22, 2021

Runs small. I have a grey one and size was not consistent

Runs inconsistent in size.

December 21, 2021

Beautiful vest, well made but too tight for me.

I purchased two Medium vests from Pategonia last year and I love them. Looking for something new for social situations and loved the look of the Los Gatos but the medium was too tight for me.

December 21, 2021


Needs a two way zip; to make it mor functional when driving or sitting.

December 20, 2021

Runs too small.

Not true to size at all.

December 18, 2021

Kinda recommend

Love the vest but runs very small. The large I purchased could have been a small/ medium. If you have broad shoulders or big chested, I would recommend either one or two sizes up. I will continue to purchase from Patagonia but know in the future that its not true in size and to purchase a size or two up.

December 15, 2021

Love it

So soft and fits TTS.

December 13, 2021

Super warm and cozy

This vest is pure perfection! The have some older vests that are xs that are short -even for me at 411 so I got the small in this and it fits perfectly! Snuggly, warm and nice enough to wear to work!!

December 9, 2021

Nice vest

Very soft and comfortable vest.

December 9, 2021

Fuzzy fun vest

I ordered a small and returned it for a medium. Im always a small in Patagonia clothing however this vest is different. The medium is still tight on me which is never true for Patagonia medium, Im athletic,145lb, 55, 34dd

December 4, 2021

Warm super

This is a great product and keeps me cozy and warm and I love it

December 1, 2021

Can be more warm

Im in love with the color. Looking at the picture you might over look it. But when you receive it. I fell in love. Im normally a extra small regardless that Im busty but these run really small so I wore it and realized I looked choked up in it. Besides that, I think it can be a little warmer. I do love this vest. So much so I bought another color

November 30, 2021

Loved it just doesnt look good on me.

I loved my vest but it didnt look good on me. I bought it in St Paul but I live in Denver so cant exchange it. I took off tags. I look too furry in it and I know I wont wear it so I will give it to my daughter. I should have bought the soft down filled fabric vest. I know I like those. Im just sorry I spent the money.

Golf course favorite

Nice vest for the golf course!

Super warm and soft!

I love my vest and very much admire the work you do and your ethical choices in doing it. Go! Patagonia! and thank you. Nancy Maxson

November 20, 2021

Runs a size small

There is no stretch and is smaller than a fleece vest i bought at the same time which does have stretch. Im 55, 145, and prefer a fitted look. A Small fits but is not patagonia comfortable. It zips over a thin shirt and looks great open. The back wrinkles. Ive never seen this before with fleece.

November 18, 2021

Los Gattos vest

This vest is very warm and cozy. I first ordered a small, which fit but was a bit too snug. The medium fits perfect!

November 16, 2021

Warm and comfortable

I gave this to my mom as a gift. She said it is very warm and comfortable. I'm happy she likes this one .

November 10, 2021

Warm and fuzzy!!

This is the second one Ive purchased. Warm and cozy. Usually just wear it w long sleeved T into early winter and the perfect warmth with some fun thrown in!

October 24, 2021


Looks great!

October 10, 2021

Love it but runs small

Super cozy and comfortable. I usually wear a small in jackets and the small Synchilla jacket I just got fits perfectly. This vest fits like a snug corset! I exchanged for a medium which fits fine.

October 6, 2021

Warm and Cozy

This is so warm and cozy. I love it. After I bought it I had to circle back and get five more items because I loved this one so much.

September 30, 2021

Super cozy and comfortable

Super cozy and comfortable. I wear in with everything. Looks good without bulk.

September 14, 2021

Comfy and Cozy

I love this vest! Perfect to keep the chill off without overheating OR great for adding an extra layer of warmth on those really cold days. Very well made. Great neutral color. Cushy and very soft. High quality zipper.

September 4, 2021

Lite but warm

Bought this for around the house. Great for the days when you just need a little extra layer.

September 4, 2021


Purchased as a gift for my sister but my wife loved it so much had to purchase an additional one for her. Soft warm and perfect fall accessories is what they said.

September 3, 2021


I had gotten two of these during same. One in xs and one in M. I usually wear a small or extra small in Patagonia. This vest runs small. The xs looked like it could be for a 10 year old. The medium fit me perfect and wasnt tight or too baggy. Its a great fuzzy and warm vest. Fir reference Im quite petite in my upper body. Most tops I wear are small... Read More or xs.

September 3, 2021

Cuddly, happy and functional

This is my third purchase of the exact same item. The other two are still w me from five and two years ago. It is such a basic casual, basic fit, which I wear so often I figured changing the color would give the appearance of wardrobe variety without actually varying wearing this vest! I like this vests comfort, pockets deep enough to safely carry ... Read Moremy keys. Each of the three vests are sized differently. This size large fit comfortably and looks good, as did two years ago size medium. The five year ago size large is gigantic in comparison to both the other vests.

September 1, 2021

Great colors and super soft!

I love this vest. I have it in two colors and it's so soft and comfortable. It's one of my favorite pieces from Patagonia. No complaints but I would caution not to dry it in high heat. I think the fibers melted together a bit when we dried it with too high heat.

September 1, 2021

Feels Cozy

I have 2 of these vests. They layer great, look cute and keep me warm.

September 1, 2021

Cozy fit

Its rare that a vest fits me so well. The armholes are the perfect size. It looks cozy and it is cozy. Perfect for fall and indoors during winter. And I love the color.

August 29, 2021

Cozy and warm

I expect to wear this a lot this fall and winter-there isnt a lot of extra room but I figured that would be the case and it looks great!

August 7, 2021


I like the warmness on my back.

July 23, 2021


This is a very nice fuzzy vest. My daughter was a little hesitant to get a vest but she loves it. She also loves the Century Pink color which is very accurate to the photo. It is a semi-fitted and not boxy vest which she likes. She will be using this vest attending college in the Pacific Northwest.

July 10, 2021


This is a cozy vest. I paired it over a long sleeve for some waterfall hikes in the spring. Loved it

June 23, 2021


Love it

June 22, 2021

Warm and cozy

The color is great goes well with anything. Cant wait to wear it when it starts getting colder.

May 17, 2021

Very cozy

I really love the color although has the word pink in it it really isnt. Very nice for fall, winter and spring in Midwest.

May 10, 2021


Very nice vest

May 5, 2021

comfy cozy

I already had this in the 1/4 zip and I needed a new vest (because my 10yr old EMS fleece vest finally bit the dust). It is great, cozy, comfy with a nice smooth lining that doesnt get static/caught up on whatever youre wearing under it. Pockets are great too. A zipper on one or an inner zip pocket could make this more versatile.

May 4, 2021

cozy and cute

this is really comfy and looks good with leggings or jeans. im really happy with my purchase

May 4, 2021

Super Warm & Soft

Love this item.

May 3, 2021

Great warm to dress up or down

I have 2 Los Gatos vest. One of my favorite layering pieces in cooler temps. Easy to dress up or down dependent on the occasion.

May 3, 2021

Super, just wish it had inner pockets

This vest is great. I live where it gets cold in the morning, so it's perfect year round for keeping warm. My only wish is that it came with some inner pockets inside the vest. When I go out hiking, I'll bring gloves - then get hot and want to chuck them in my vest. It's a minor complaint, but for the price, it could be cool if it ha... Read Mored these. Great otherwise.

Perfect extra layer

Typical Patagonia quality: this cosy vest is just right for cool Southern California mornings and evenings, and as a extra layer when I get chilly.

March 30, 2021

Warm, but XS keeps getting bigger

I have this vest in shadow blue from fall 2018, and it fits really well. I purchased another in pigeon blue, to have an alternative, but it fits differently. It is extremely roomy through the chest, under the arms, and through the shoulders. I am small and narrow, and I've been having this problem with everything I've tried to buy from Pa... Read Moretagonia in the past two years. I think they're trying to accommodate more people, within the same sizes, and I'm unfortunately being sized out. It pains me to return, as I love this vest, but it fits so poorly. I'm grateful I at least have my one from fall 2018. If there were an XXS in this vest, maybe that would help.

March 29, 2021

So pretty and cozy!

The quality is great and the service of the company also. I did exchange it for a smaller size but that wasnt a problem at all even after a couple of weeks. I did wish they had made a different material under the arms because the fluffy material looks worn out only under the arms when you wearing it. But no one will see that only yourself so I am s...

March 27, 2021

soft & cozy

my go-to vest for errands and being comfortable!!

March 27, 2021

beautiful color

The size difference between the XS and S were more than one size. The XS was just a smidge too small. The S was huge. If you have an hour glass figure this might work better for you than an athletic build. LOVE the color of this one. Better luck next time.

March 27, 2021

Great vest


March 24, 2021

I love it

Super soft and warm. I love it. I usually wear Small Patagonia clothes and I kept the small one but Im between the Medium and Small size. The medium was too big.

March 22, 2021

Very warm

I really love this product. I bought one before, but it was small. But this time is perfect for me. I like this fabric material. Its soft and warm.

March 20, 2021

Feel soft!

Loved the color and texture! Will wear it for a long time.

March 18, 2021

Perfect Vest

Love the Los Gatos Vest. It's warm, comfortable, great side pockets, and I love the warm caramel "Nest Brown" color. Purchased a size Medium, and found it to be a nice skimming fit without being tight, allowing a light sweater to be worn underneath. I'm 5'5", 115 lbs, 36/29/36.

March 17, 2021

snug fit and I'm skinny.

I usually have room to spare in ay M vest I've bought I the past; but this vest can only fit snugly over a t-shirt, nothing warmer. luckily its a great layer for 40'F or above if you run wam!

March 16, 2021

Soft and warm

Perfect for outdoor dining!

March 10, 2021


I have never washed this vest , I rarely wear it because it looks like a stuffy that when through thr dryer. it matted very easily with a little friction .

Response from Patagonia
March 17, 2021

Hello there, we're truly sorry to hear your vest is matted. We'd recommend brushing the matted areas and letting it air dry. If this doesn't work and you are unsatisfied with its performance, you are welcome to [return]( it under warranty.

March 10, 2021

Cozy and comfy.

It keeps me warm in our chilly home. As the weather starts to warm I am sure I will be wearing it for outdoors walks.

March 9, 2021


Purchased this vest in 3 colors. Have been wearing them all winter as an extra layer indoors & for extra warmth outside. It is a snug but not uncomfortable fit. Love the pockets. Hits at the hip so is not too long or too short. Highly recommended!!

March 8, 2021


Love this vest!

March 6, 2021

Super warm

Love this vest. Made me feel a little fashionable while hiking through Arches National Park.

March 6, 2021

So cozy

So soft and cozy to wear with anything- wish it came in every color. In warmer climates, vests are preferred over coats.

March 4, 2021

Disappointing zipper

I love the look and want to wear it but the zipper doesn't work well and I cant get it to work. I usually give up

Response from Patagonia
March 16, 2021

Thanks for your feedback on the zipper. All of our gear is covered by our Ironclad Guarantee and you're welcome to return it.

Poor quality

The vest looks amazing on the website, but unfortunately when it came I got a pretty bad surprise! It looks cheap and with a pretty low quality.

Response from Patagonia
March 17, 2021

Hi Emilia, we're so sorry to hear that you were unhappy with the look of the Los Gatos Fleece Vest. We want you to be completely satisfied with your gear and since you're not, please feel free to begin a return or exchange here,

March 1, 2021

Cozy warm, dare I say luxurious.

Feels luxuriously warm and cozy, fitting close to body comfortably, made especially so by being lined.

February 28, 2021

Great Vest!

Great vest! Keeps me warm, love the pockets, and so cozy.

Too small & strange trim

Not our favorite. I bought this for my 13 year old daughter as a Valentines Day gift and we were disappointed in both size and strangeness trim- it isnt cute.

Response from Patagonia
March 12, 2021

Hey there, we'd love to hear more from you! What was strange about the trim, and the sizing? The more details you provide, the more it helps our designers and other customers, so please feel free to submit another review letting us know what size you purchased, what wasn't fitting right, and how the trim was bothersome. Thank you! In the meantime, if you haven't already, feel free to get started on a return [here](

Cozy and Cute!

One of my favorite things to wear when chilly! Very fuzzy and soft, but cute enough to wear around town.

It is so well made and I love the color but it runs large under my arms and the only thing I was sad off , was that the material under my arms showing already signs of wear. I only have it for a few weeks but under the arms it looks like I have it worn for years.

Be careful with sizing up - you might not need to.

Based on all the reviews urging others to size up, I did - I'm usually a size M in Patagonia tops/Jackets (and a small in many other brands), so I ordered the size Large. The vest that arrived was too big for me, but I can see why people size up: it depends on how you plan to wear/layer this vest. I don't usually wear my vests over thick ... Read Moresweaters etc. - more likely a long sleeved t-shirt or shirt. For that, the size Large was too generous, the arm holes to big etc. The Medium works fine, and when I zip it closed, it is snugger than my other two Patagonia vests (Retro X in Medium, plus the regular fleece one, also in M) - more fitted. Lastly, this to me is less of a functional hiking type vest and more of a fashion item. Century Pink is gorgeous. Now I just need more tops that go with it!

cozy and warm

I wear this vest on chilly days indoors and out. It fit's really well, keeps me warm (but not too warm) and looks nice too. The rusty red color is a nice addition to the wardrobe.

Great vest for all seasons

Loving this vest to throw on for an extra layer. I got a small, which fits but runs a bit on the small size. If you're on the fence on size, I'd go up one.

Retro fun style and color

Love the furry warmth of this vest. It is slim fitting so a blouse or a t-shirt is about all that fits underneath. Great seasonal transition piece.

February 25, 2021

super soft

the fleece is extraordinarily soft and cozy, pretty too! lots of compliments. great color - robin blue.

Sizing issues

Returned the small, as it was WAY to small for a 5 and 114 pound woman. Couldnt find a medium to order.

Red fleece vest

The vest is good quality and well made, but it doesn't fit. So, alas, I will be giving it away to someone smaller. My size is everything else I wear is Medium. So this was an expensive disappointment

I love this vest! Looks so cute in the winter with some boots!

Very cute and cuddly.

The Los Gatos fleece vest is very soft, warm and cuddly. Perfect for Apres Ski or changing into after a hard workout in the backcountry. The only criticism is to make it about a 1/2" - 1" longer so to have overlap with the top of pants.

Wonderful Vest I love wearing it - Great Complements

Perfect: Fit, High Quality, Great Color. When ever I wear it I get complements & Patagonia gets highest ratings because you are such wonderful and responsible company.

Perfect cozy vest

This vest is so warm and fuzzy and cozy! And the color is so pretty! I love it!!

February 24, 2021

Perfect for layering

Love this vest for wearing by itself, or layering to play paddle tennis or ski.

February 24, 2021

Loved it!

Its beautiful light weigh and worm I loved it so much!

February 23, 2021

Cozy Comfort

I usually wear a size small but wanted a vest that could allow for layering thicker sweaters or fleece underneath and still have room to move. The fuzz is fun and luxurious!

February 23, 2021


This vest is very comfortable!

February 19, 2021

Nicely made!

I purchased this vest to wear under a Patagonia sweater jacket while playing Paddle and working outdoors. It is nicely made and not too long so easy to layer without coming down further than my jacket. I am a size 6 and chose a medium.

February 16, 2021

Super warm, true to size.

The finest and warmest vest that I have ever owned. Do not hesitate, this is a champion of vests. Light weight, throw into the washing machine, hang out to dry and go.

February 15, 2021

Super warm, a great vest.

This is a fabulous vest, lightweight and very warm. I hope Patagonia has more next year. I have two and would like a third. My size is gone for now. A great piece, but Patagonia is the best.

Ran small, looked dirty.

This vest ran quite small. I could hardly zip it though according to the measurements it should have fit. The color in person looked like a dirty beige. It went back. I wish there more size inclusivity.

Thanks for your feedback on fit. We're always happy to provide garment dimensions before purchase in the future.

Glad I have it but with reservations.

As I write I am wearing the vest . its super warm and cozy BUT I mind that there is no inner pocket for phone and no zips on outer pockets to keep contents safe. I almost didnt buy it for that reason.

Comfy, warm, stylish

Its a chilly winter and I wear warm vests inside our high-ceilinged, drafty house. I received the gray one as a gift and loved it so much that I bought the blue one too. I call it my cookie monster vest!

January 29, 2021

Super warm

Im very happy with my vest its really pretty and it fit just right and very warm

January 28, 2021

Comfy vest

My original order was a Medium - and I exchanged it for a large. The Medium ran small. The large is just right. I like the lining, too, - it doesn't add weight.

January 27, 2021

Soft and warm

This is soft and warm as a layer under my Patagonia ski jacket. I hope Patagonia brings this back next year in brighter colors.

January 26, 2021

Super Soft!

I love my vest but would recommend going one size up. According to the chart I am an XL but when it arrived it was small. I returned for an XXL and it was perfect! Customs service was also amazing with my exchange!

January 24, 2021

Comfy and Warm

Love how cozy this is. Super warm

January 23, 2021

A very stylish and warm vest

I saw this vest at the Nordstrom and I liked it, only they did not have the color I was looking for . So I went checked out on the I find a vest with lovely color for casual outing. I love it. It is very comfortable and a great fit. I normally wear size S, but customer reviews said it runs a little small. So I got M. A perfect fit.

January 20, 2021

Love this vest!!

I sized up based on other reviews and how other Patagonia vests fit. This is one of my favorites and I cant wait to wear it for years to come!!

January 19, 2021

Quality and warm.

Very nice best.

January 19, 2021


So very warm and soft. I love this vest.

Excellent vest

I never wore vests before but my son got me one for Christmas last year that I finally started wearing this year. It was soooo comfortable and cozy and attractive that I bought another one. Love them both and just switch off colors depending on what else Im wearing.

January 18, 2021

Like wearing a hug

Im absolutely thrilled with this vest. It is beautifully made with quality in all the little details from the pockets to the zipper to the silky lining. I wear it around the house over a base layer or under a jacket for hiking. It is a slim fit that works best over a base layer but it still fits fine over a sweater. The smolder blue is beautiful an... Read Mored surprisingly neutral.

January 17, 2021

Great extra bit of warmth

This vest is a perfect extra bit of warmth when I am a little chilly. And it is so soft too!

January 15, 2021

Getting buried in this vest!

I love my fleece vest.... I wear it probably 4x a work and keeping me warm at home on cold nites. It keeps my core super warm. I usually wear a small but it runs small, so isized up andvmedium is perfect.

January 15, 2021

Go To Non-Puffer Vest

Love this vest for dog walks and hikes when I just need a small thick layer, but not a puffer/poof vest. Love the material, super soft, I dont overheat. I do like things a bit loose so I would recommend a Medium if that is also your style. Will probably buy another color next Fall/Winter season :) I am 5ft 2, weight changes from 120-135 - usually...

Cozy without bulk

Bought this for my 88 year old mom. She absolutely loves it because she can wear it around the house without being bulky and still keep her warm. Definitely runs small because typically she is a medium and I had to exchange for a large.
