Used to be my favorite
I couldn't stop gushing about this patagonia item when I got it late 2022 as it was the softest, fluffiest, and warmest sweater I have. It was easily my favorite. but only after 1 winter, the material has lost its coziness, the fleece looks so worn out and turned a bit rough. Really disappointed:(
Response from PatagoniaMay 16, 2023
Hi Maria, thanks for reaching out to us about your Los Gatos 1/4-Zip. We're sorry that you're not happy with the fabric condition at this point. General care for this item includes washing in cold water with a normal or gentle detergent (no bleach, softeners, etc.), and then drying on low heat. You can try a dryer sheet in with this item, to see if it makes it softer and fluffier. Also, the less you wash and dry the jacket, the better. The fluff of the fleece does decrease over time, mostly due to friction and compression from other garments or objects (outer shell jackets, seat belts, purse/pack straps, etc.), but you may be able to restore your jacket to some degree by using a wire brush (like for a pet) to de-matt some of the fleece if it's not too tightly molded. Of course, if you are not happy with the product performance and/or this method doesn't work, you can make a [return](https://www.patagonia.ca/returns.html) at any time!
I love this fleece 1/4 zip jacket. fit is perfect, cozy, warm yet light weight. I have used it hiking in the Sierra's, walking miles in West LA and plan to take it to Iceland. Looks great with blue jeans, leggings etc. Also, washed well in gentle cycle and tumble dry low heat. I am 5'4" 120lbs, size small perfect.
I purchased myself a Los Gatos awhile back and found myself wearing it all the time. My husband noticed and thought Id enjoy a second color. The Los Gatos is soft, cozy, and feels light weight to wear. It looks good for both work and play. Now I find myself wearing one or the other most days of the week.
Warm and cozy!
Love this pullover! Its warm and cozy! Im 5 ft 7, 180 lbs with an athletic build. I tend to wear a L or an XL in things like this. I initially ordered an XL to make sure I had room for a layer or two underneath, but it was way too big. The L fits great and I can layer underneath it. I also love the purpley-taupe color! So pretty! I think the fuzzy ...

PERFECT the way it is!
Love this fleece top! Like all the tops everywhere in recent years, it's a bit short (can't wait 'til this trend is OVER) so I got a medium instead of small after trying both out in a shop. Admittedly I've gained some weight in recent years so I'm not a true S anymore, but both the shop assistant & I agreed that the med... Read Moreium length looked better while S still fit okay. And the roomier fit with M actually complements the teddy bear-like cuteness of the top! I personally like the lack of pockets on this one because it would have added bulk to already fluffy design potentially making it frumpy... I also love the blue binding trims on pampas tan color I got - so stylish! Finally, it's super light while warm, but that's almost just expected with Patagonia~ :-D
I returned this, because I
I returned this, because I liked the 2021/22 design, without elastic on the bottom, more than the elasticated version. I want it to hang loose over layers, not bunch them all up at the bottom.

Size down for a cozy but flattering fit
I ordered the XXS because Patagonia always seems to run a bit large on me. I'm 110 lbs with a petite but athletic build. It fits perfectly. I was worried it would be too small based on other reviews, but I love it. The band at the bottom allows it to fit snugly around your hips OR you can fold it under and it keeps it in place. It is SUPER sof... Read Moret and cozy. It sheds a bit, but I haven't yet washed it. The dusty brown color is beautiful - more like a dark dusty purple.
Super warm go to for around the house.
This is a womans ex large. I love the fit and style ( I am a 185lb guy) . These are the best. My wife had one and I wore it on a four month Alaska trip regularly and had to have one for myself. These are the real deal. Cozy, warm and all around great.
Very warm and cozy
I have always wanted this pullover! Glad I took the plunge. Its so warm and Uber comfy but since its a pull over you cant wear face makeup or it will come off on the light color when pulled up and over the face! So thats an easy fix..Ill buy a darker color too! I also love anything Patagonia so call me a lover of all things Patagonia:-) oh..dont wa... Read Moresh with dark colors..double duh as I did that and some darks kinda bled on it but thats totally my fault! Id buy this 1000% times over
Cozy but matted :(
I loved this sweater, but after the first wash (following the instructions on the inside tag), it came out matted in many places :( I have tried a boar bristle brush but the fibers just won’t stay fluffy…disappointing.

We're very sorry to hear that you've had a less-than-stellar experience with our Los Gatos fleece. We encourage you to take the pullover to our [Patagonia-owned store in your area](https://www.patagonia.ca/store-locator/) so that they can evaluate it and offer some help under our Ironclad Guarantee.
Soft and warm
I bought the light gray and love it. Living in a cold climate, it is perfect to wear around the house and out and about. True it doesn't have pockets but I like that. All of my pants have pockets so it's nice to wear a top once in awhile but not carry my phone, lip balm etc. Love this!
I ordered a medium. I am 5ft 5, 117 lbs. I feel they are shorter and smaller than previous years. Not sure about the durability of them either. I did order 2 more in a large. I hate that they are no pockets! I need those. Nevertheless, I still like these.

Hey Jen, thanks for the review. We're glad to hear that you like the fleece despite some features you are missing. We do have the Women's [Los Gatos Hooded Fleece Pullover](https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-los-gatos-hooded-fleece-pullover/25245.html?dwvar_25245_color=LTPG&cgid=womens-fleece) which has the addition of a hood and a marsupial pocket. It might be better suited for your needs.
Just buy it
This Los Gatos pullover is my favorite Patagonia item I own! The weather cooled off earlier than normal and I jumped on the website to find the coziest sweater I could find - goal achieved. Im using this for walking, running errands and lounging. I am 5 ft 6 inches, 138, and went with a M for a roomy fit.
I returned it
I thought it ran too long. I also did not like that it had no pockets anywhere on the item and the binding on the bottom of the shirt.
Response from PatagoniaDecember 2, 2022
Hi Joan! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're sorry to hear you found the 1/4-Zip to run large, and for the disappointment with the lack of pockets. We rely on feedback like this to improve products for future seasons so it's greatly appreciated. We'll share this with our design team.
The Los Gatos fleece fits true to size. Color was as pictured. I was disappointed that the garment did not have side pockets or a pouch . My older fleece pull overs have pockets and a pouch. I was also disappointed with the texture of the fleece. I am keeping the garment because of the color , fit and warmth. Will not order again.
Cozy and warm
I purchased and received this yesterday. Very soft and warm. It feels like Im wearing a soft blanket. Not bulky material, thing but warm. I purchased it in taupe and may possibly purchase another one in another color because I love it that much. The only downfall is that it comes a little big, but it looks fine. When I zip it I have too much space ... Read Morefor my necks and it feels wide if I zip to the top. Other than that it is a good purchase to invest in for the cold, breezy weather for everyday wear.
Fluffy, warm and oh so comfy!
I absolutely fell IN LOVE when I tried this on at the store. It fits perfectly on me. I am 5,8 (keyboard wont allow proper punctuation). I weigh 155lbs. This is stretchy in all the right places, yet fits true to size. Its so soft and flattering. No regrets here.
I actually purchased this fleece to replace another one that I sent back because of poor quality. This new fleece had a tight, elastic piping around the bottom hem and the brushed fleece had a really unpleasant slippery texture that made me want to take it off immediately. Not the formerly great quality that Patagonia was known for. Sad.

Hey Paulette, we're sorry to hear that you're not liking this fleece. We'll share your thoughts with the product team. In the meantime, you can check out past season options on our [Worn Wear website](https://wornwear.patagonia.com/shop/search?q=los%20gatos).
old design was way better
I have a collection of these from years past, and the new styles of everything from Patagonia this year has the binding on the bottom of the sleeves and bottom of the tops. I hate it. I hate the shorter styles for the women as well. We shouldn't be concerned with being cute in the woods, we need to be warm and protected and the short styles ar...

Doesn’t hold up
I loved at first but then I washed it and the fur became flat in a bunch of spots and now it looks terrible. I would expect much better quality for sweater at this price point

Hi Sarah, thank you for submitting this review. We're sorry to hear your 1/4 Zip has gotten matted! You might try washing it with natural detergent and drying it on low with a couple of clean tennis balls to restore the fluffiness. If this doesn't work, you can absolutely return it under our Ironclad Guarantee, either to a Patagonia-owned store, or online at [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html). Please let us know how we can help!
What a great purchase! I bought abs wear this for casual wear. Its so warm, shockingly so, because its not Uber thick or bulky. Great quality. The blue is rich with warm purple ish tones.

The coziest thing ever
I'd been eyeing these for a while now and finally treated myself -- just wish I'd bought it sooner so I would've had it through winter! I run cold and have practically been living in this thing on chilly spring mornings, I swear it's like wearing a warm hug. My *only* complaint is that I wish it had pockets!
I am wearing it today and have worn it many days since Christmas! Love it's warmth and coziness. Only thing missing is a pocket for phone and key and credit card maybe. I hesitate to wear it on walks or hikes because of this missing feature. I wouldn't want a big or bold pocket, maybe just one on the upper left sleeve or on the side near ... Read Morethe seam. Great color, great fleece! Thank you! (gift from my daughter!)
Love this soft, cuddly Los Gatos fleece
I love this so much! The softness, and warmth! I wish this had pockets! I spend a lot of time out standing in cold weather, Photographing, and would love to put my hands in pockets waiting for the light. Thank you for everything you do for the environment! Love you guys!
Style/Sizing off from last year
Bought the same product in the same size a year ago. Perfect. Purchased the same product/size this year. The fit was too big, boxy the neck ginormous. Compared w/last year's model---- completely different cuts, sizing. Hilarious. Not the same. Advise of improvements (not) or name the product differently next time.
So soft and cozy!
Giving this 4 stars only because i really wish it had pockets so i can throw my keys in there when i go for a quick errand. Other than that this quarter zip is literally so perfect, it is extremely soft and stays soft after washing! It makes you instantly warm the second you put it on. For sizing reference i am between a M and L, purchased L for ex... Read Moretra comfort, i think a M would also fit nicely.
Not the same after a wash
I absolutely loved the fit and style and when I first got it, it was so fuzzy and soft. Unfortunately after two washes, it is not as soft as it was. I wish it stayed soft because now I dont wear it as much anymore.

My new favourite sweater!
I received this sweater as a gift from my boyfriend (after eyeing it for some time). It is so soft, fuzzy and warm! Definitely my new go-to for everyday coziness. I am 5'0, petite and usually size S or M, and got this in a medium. It is a great slightly-oversized fit, but not too bulky! I wouldn't want to size down due to the elastic bind...

Hello, this is the third one I have bought. I prefer the older model fit which is smaller and has no elastic at waist. I find the medium this year is more like a large. this said I have many different synchella type things and the los Gatos is by far my favorite, it is warm , functional and cosy.
Love the feel and fit
This 1/4 zip is exactly what I was looking for. The pile on the fleece is so soft and relatively durable. I wouldn't recommend washing it too much for fear of matting the fleece though.

Coziest pullover in my collection
When its cold and gray outside, this is the piece I reach for most. It keeps me perfectly warm, and I just feel cozy when wearing it.

Response from PatagoniaNovember 26, 2021
Hi Carla, thanks for the feedback! We're sorry to hear the fabric has matted after a few wears. A tumble dry on a low setting after a warm wash should help get your pullover re-fluffed.
Warm & fuzzy
I'd bought a Los Gatos 1/4 zip 2 years ago. Come winter, it's all I want to wear! So I ordered 3 more. But this year's 1/4 zip has elastic around the bottom hem, unlike the earlier models. This is not my preference so I returned them. Anyone who likes the elastic-bottom: now there're more for you! Go get 'em 'cause the... Read Morey're just the coziest!
Different than a few years ago
I bought 3 of these Los Gatos 1/4 Zip tops because I loved the one I'd bought 2 years ago. But these new ones have elastic at the bottom hem which is exactly what I don't want. Not a flattering fit and it tends to ride up if I lift my arms. Sent them all back.
Response from PatagoniaNovember 24, 2021
Hi Susan, we're sorry that the change on the Women's Los Gatos Fleece 1/4-Zip is bothersome. We do have a Los Gatos Fleece Jacket that looks similar and doesn't feature the elastic around the waste. You can take a peek at that here: https://www.patagonia.com/product/womens-los-gatos-fleece-jacket/25212.html?dwvar_25212_color=SGRY. It might be just what you're looking for!
Super warm and cozy!
I was looking for a fleece jacket to wear on the streets and at work when the deep winter chill sets in. Being a bit busty, I almost ordered the XL, but then the sleeves are always too long.

Super cozy and warm
I really love this piece and the beautiful colors. I can't wait for it to get colder so I can wear it all the time. The only thing is that the sleeves would be 1/2" longer if I had my way and am sort of missing pockets but understand the piece is more streamlined this way. I might buy another color though because I love it so much.
I bought this in a small first and absolutely love it. I normally buy a medium, but after the size suggestions on the site I decided to get a small.
