Ws Better Sweater® Vest

True To Size
September 6, 2023

An American Classic

The vest has a more snug fit than long sleeve better sweater. Better sweater is a happy place.

August 7, 2023

Great winter layer

I own 2 of these and they are my winter standard. They are perfect for work and look nice with dresses or pants. Perfect cozy layer under jackets and great temperature control in changing conditions.

August 6, 2023

Very Good

Love it

July 5, 2023

Warm and cozy.

I have 4 Patagonia vests. They are the best in this Maine weather lately, damp and rainy. Also under the matching jacket in the freezing cold. Best vest I have ever had, year round!

May 7, 2023


I'm 5'4" 122lbs and got a Small. Fit is good with a light layer. Would be too snug with a heavy sweater. The birch is grey; thought it would be lighter in color but it will look fine with my white jacket.

May 1, 2023

Great Style!

This vest is so veritable! I wear it to tennis and spin classes for warmup. I also wear it for walking the dogs or a quick run. It is one of my favorite Patagonia purchases-but I love all things Patagonia!

April 28, 2023

perfect casual vest

I love the Better Sweater line. I have been purchasing and wearing them since the earliest iterations. I still own and wear three pieces from 2011. For being over 10 years old, I haven't had too much of an issue with pilling, relatively minor. The fit of these vests are a slim fit so they do fit closer to the body. Many folks say this line run... Read Mores small, which I agree with somewhat. I am 5'8" and a size 12-14 and pretty busty on top and wear the XL in Better Sweater products. I easily wear a flannel or capilene top under the vest, fully zipped, with no issue.

Perfect Except for Pilling

Perfect in terms of style, functionality, and fit. Unfortunately, showing wear on sides after wearing just a few times - specifically, pilling.

Response from Patagonia

We appreciate your feedback and we're sorry to hear about the pilling. We hope that our [product care guide]( helps with some information on removing the pilling.

this sweater vest is one

this sweater vest is one of the best things I own from Patagonia - and we have a lot of products! It is comfortable and fits perfectly - very stylish and warm!

March 13, 2023

Warm, soft fabric, goes with everything

Love the material! Very warm! I wear it at work or at home!

March 5, 2023

Perfect for AZ winter

Got one in XL and one in XXL. Like they both. XL is perfect for long sleeved tshirt under and Xxl is perfect over a tshirt and sweater for outside AZ winter with 40 degree in am snd then getting to 65 in the afternoon. Black is professional looking for work.

February 27, 2023

Caveat emptor

I purchased the first one for my wife in February, 2021. The zipper tore out in April, 2022, so we exchanged it under warranty. Today (February 2023) it happened again. The same thing has happened to me. Nice vest but the zipper sucks and constant returns are a hassle. Lousy quality control, too.

Response from Patagonia
March 3, 2023

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review, Thomas! We also want to extend our sincere apologies for all of the issues you've had with your zippers on this product. Please rest assured that we will pass along this feedback to our Product Designers so they are aware of these issues. In the meantime, please feel free to start your [return]( at any time as we want you to be completely satisfied with all of your Patagonia products.

February 26, 2023

great fit and warm

I like wearing vests because they add enough warmth without over heating. I especially like the Patagonia vests because they fit well, look great with casual clothes and are warm enough to not need more restrictive sweaters.

February 22, 2023

Classic vest

I love the styling on this vest. It is a fitted vest that is long in the torso, which is great as I am tall. It is warm, providing a nice layer under my raincoat for cold spring days. I own four of them in different colors and I wear them quite often. Well done Patagonia.

February 21, 2023

Oldy but goody

Can't go wrong with a traditional vest. I love this shade of blue!

February 15, 2023

Beautiful Vest

Very comfortable and well made. I own several of the Better Sweater Jackets and Vests.

February 10, 2023

Super warm but frays

Thought I finally found a vest that works. So warm! But after a few days (maybe total of 10 hours) of wearing, sections are frayed from rubbing off the backpack straps. Unfortunately, Will be returning.

Response from Patagonia
February 17, 2023

Hi Bernie, we're sorry to hear this vest isn't holding up as it should! It shouldn't be fraying after such a short time. We will reach out to you about returning it under our warranty.

February 6, 2023

Perfect for under coat

I bought this vest to wear under my coat as an extra layer while traveling. It was perfect for core body warmth and for when in restaurants and coat was off. Loved the zip pockets for being able to securely hold phone and hotel key.

January 31, 2023

This vest is perfect as

This vest is perfect as a layer, under outer garments or as an outer layer itself. I have several Patagonia items - they are excellent quality, long-lasting, and attractive.

January 27, 2023

Need tall options

I ordered a small to see if I could get a bit more length. It WAS a tad longer but the armholes were enormous! Ultimately, I went back to an XS but I hope that someday there will be tall size options. XST would be perfect!

January 27, 2023

Comfortable and warm. Perfect fit. Environmentally sound packaging, no plastic!

See above.

January 21, 2023

Perfect fit

My daughter loves the fit, and the look. She has a hard time finding things that fit her slim body and the coverage. She loves the way it covers her when she moves and does crunch up and fits perfectly

January 13, 2023

Great vest!

Great for casual wear, comfy and warm for women , I suggest size up by 1. Bought this vest for sister and one for myself

I'm a nurse and I wear the vest on the floor for extra warmth.

Vest is very comfortable and fit is comfortable and keeps you warm. It's not bulky and is flattering. I use it for work and the look is casual, I wear it over a long sleeve and I just love the feel of the material.

January 4, 2023

Classic vest, pay attention to "slim fit"

I am always a Medium, but this vest, or the "slim fit" of some products, is just a tad too tight around the chest and lower hips. Now I know that if it is a "slim fit", I will need to size up by one or two sizes for my body type (3 babies). Other than that, it is classically warm, and the material is solid. I wear these vests ve... Read Morery day in the winter, as they move with me and give me the warmth I need, without the arm restriction.

Hi Kelley, we're sorry to hear about the trouble with sizing. Please feel free to take advantage of our [complimentary exchanges]( at your earliest convenience.

January 3, 2023

Warm and soft!

Love the length, it hits mid hip and is long enough that I can raise my arms and it still covers my waist.

January 3, 2023

Great Layer

This vest fits true to size and is an excellent layer for warmth for casual wear and the outdoors.

January 1, 2023


I love it !

December 29, 2022

Very nice. Good fit.

Recieved this as a gift from my husband. Perfect fit and I like the color. Will use it for casual wear and for gardening.

December 25, 2022

Clean looking

Love the vest but did run a size small. I ordered a medium since I have the long sleeve jacket in this style in a medium yet the medium in the vest was snug a large in the vest would of been a better fit

December 20, 2022

Long and warm !

The staff I dealt with on the phone, were wonderful and in the busy days of holiday crazy I got my vest in days! Thanks!

December 19, 2022

Fit too narrow. Would only be able to wear thin shirts under it The fabric is really nice; wears well without getting too ratty looking - my husband is on his second one he likes it so much.

December 18, 2022

My house is cool even

My house is cool even with the heat on. I wear this non stop. People even ask me if I wear this to bed!!! I don't but I am tempted. Fits great and I think I will get many happy years with this. I am so happy they finally make things in XXL so the fit is not so tight as with XL.

December 11, 2022

Cozy and good looking

This is the 4th Better Sweater vest Ive gotten from Patagonia. All different colors. I love them! They are functional (cozy) and good looking. And they wash up great too.

December 6, 2022

Looks great, feels great!

This is a perfect weight for when you need a little more warmth without bulk. I love the lined pockets! I am a bit busty so it is a little tight across the chest but otherwise the fit is perfect.

November 25, 2022

Looks great and keeps you warm

Worn outdoors on a 20 degree day watching a sports tournament and kept me nice and warm! Bonus, also looked great when we finally were inside and I could take my coat off. True to size

Best customer service ever. I accidentally cut the vest when trying to open it. I called and got a real person to help and they replaced it without a problem. Comfortable vest. Good fit

Warm and cozy

I love this sweater vest! It is well-made, true to size, and very soft and warm. I do not put it in the dryer to avoid possible shrinkage, but it drip dries fairly quickly. Great for my job in health care.

October 29, 2022

Great for Minnesota Winters

It was true to description being slim fitting. I am a 36DDD do I tried a large but was to big every well else . Arm holed/lengthy/hips. Have 3 vest like it

October 25, 2022

Great quality -comfy and warm

I wear this vest with pretty much everything. Jeans, leggings and over a dress. It really goes everywhere and with everything. Its a Patagonia so its great quality and that makes it versatile for very casual to business casual.

October 11, 2022

Very nice, but ...

This is a nice vest and I really wanted this color (impossible to find) but IT IS TOO LONG! Patagonia isn't known for women's petite clothing and it's unlikely I will purchase anything from them again unless I call to get garment measurements.

Response from Patagonia
October 12, 2022

Hey Jackie, thanks for the review. We're sorry to hear the vest was too long. You're welcome to get garment measurements by reaching out to [customer service]( We have several different channels you can connect with us on; including chat, phones, email or social media.

October 8, 2022

Excellent Layering Piece

The vest is excellent; it is the right weight for the in-between season here in the mid-Atlantic region. (Fall may last all of five minutes, but I want this vest for each of them.) I have been trying to find excuses to wear this, and so far it has been perfect for inside the house on cold days before we turn the heat on and for long, chilly morning... Read More walks. Thinking of turning down the thermostat at work just to have another reason. Patagonia has the perfect clothes for every weather. (But why, oh why, can I not add contractions to a review? No apostrophes allowed?)

This is an attractive and functional vest that I use for many daily activities. It is warmer and not as noisy as the many nano vests I own. Very soft, and I love that it uses recycled materials. I normally wear S in Patagonia but this is a slim fit, so I ordered M and it's comfortable. My first better sweater piece and it's a winner.

Why cant we get just normal, standard fleece? Also - fit is great except armhole are enormous. Make it look odd.

Thank you for submitting this review, Jill. We're sorry you're not wild about the fit of those sleeves! Thank you for returning it, rather than hanging on to something that doesn't make you happy.

Vest is great fabric is not

I was very excited to get this vest 2 years ago , the fit is really nice and it is nice and long…I looked all over for a long vest and this seemed perfect.

May 20, 2022

Have this vest in every color

Love this vest! Im slim on the top and this fits great and doesnt look like Im wearing the wrong size vest for me. Its great for layering under jackets as its not bulky. Not too heavy so its great for cool days on its own without a jacket over it.

May 12, 2022

Like a good friend

I always like a practical easy to care for vest, get it dirty, wash it and go again. This is it. Wears well, looks good, take it anywhere.

May 9, 2022

Just Right

Perfect alternative to the puffy vests, fits like a dream and love the blue color. Just wish the collar stayed folded down and off the neck a bit better. Perhaps in time.

April 28, 2022

Like a warm hug

Love the Better Sweater Fleece Vest! It can be casual or dressy (with a nice scarf) and provides the perfect level of warmth and comfort.

April 23, 2022

Perfect shoulder-season layer

Lighter, sleeker fit than Patagonias winter fleece. I wear it daily during our chilly mornings/evenings. Would like a zipper pull, and a beefier zipper, as it gets continual use (partly open, then closed again, repeat).

Response from Patagonia
April 25, 2022

We appreciate your feedback, and we're so glad to hear that you like the "slim" fit design of our Better Sweater as opposed to some of our "regular" or "relaxed" fit styles.

The Perfect Vest

I LOVE this Vest! I have it in Black as well and wear one of them every day it seems. I chose XL as I prefer to be comfy - Large would have worked however. The Vest feels incredible, looks great and keep me warm without needing a jacket. Perfect! Order one today - you will be so glad you did!!!

March 15, 2022

Very nice quality, but a bit snug

Debated whether to give this vest a 4 or a 5. I bought it to wear over flannel shirts and light sweaters. I find the fit somewhat tight over the bustline, but otherwise acceptable. It may stretch out with wear. I hope it doesn't pill as much as a better sweater jacket I purchased a few years ago.

March 15, 2022

The perfect layer

Perfect layer. Color goes with everything. Useful to wear around the house on a chilly day or layering to go outside in winter. Love it!

March 14, 2022


I ordered large vest, it was little tight, then exchanged it for extra large. Whole experience was great.

March 8, 2022

Not too warm

I like that the best is fitted & that the fabric is soft. I live in FL so I wanted a vest to wear periodically when the weather was cooler. Its exactly what I wanted!

March 3, 2022


This is my second one of this vest. Perfect layering, not heavy or bulky. Also, more stylish than the puffers, although I own several of them. All are wonderful. Colors are great. The gang in Dillon are helpful, friendly.

March 2, 2022

Love it!

This vest appears to be very well made and looks great on. It is very form fitting, so if you want a more comfortable fit I'd try a size larger than you normally wear.

Hi Jennifer, thank you for sharing this review! We understand, those care symbols can be hard to decode! It sounds like you took care of your vest in the very safest way. What we recommend is: machine wash in cold, no bleach, and tumble dry on low. No ironing. Please let us know if we can be of any help!

February 15, 2022


Very nice fit! Soft, comfortable fabric gives just the right amount of warmth when a bit of an extra layer is all that is needed

February 13, 2022

Great Sweater Vest

The navy sweater vest was just what I wanted--color, warmth & quality. Generally I like the style. I have a similar vest in another color from another brand where the logo is color matched and placed at the hem of the vest. I much prefer that to the chest & color logo of the Patagonia vest, even for casual wear.

February 7, 2022

Cute but runs large

Love this vest and keep it at work. I usually wear a medium but thought it looked too large and got a small instead. The smaller size looks more tailored and form flattering.

February 5, 2022

Looks and feels great. It was a great fit and can be dressed down or dressed up. It's a super addition to any wardrobe!

January 18, 2022

Fits women with a straight rather than curvy figure

This is my second vest of the same style, but it fits differently. The vest is slightly shorter and is less roomy. It is slightly snug in the bust, but apps at the armholes. The waist area fits vet well, but then it is more snug at the hip where Id really like freer mobility.

January 14, 2022

Comfy, out

Already well worn by my Mother-in- law.the best is seeing her wearing it daily!!

This is a great item for a quick grab and go kind of day... it looks great with leggings, yoga pants, jeans, and sweats! It is also very lightweight, but keeps you very warm. I highly recommenced for yourself or as a gift!

January 7, 2022

No more chill

I love that the length is a little longer than my other vests (puffers) b/c no gaps to create chills

December 28, 2021

Fits Well

I like the length in the back It keeps you warmer. The vest fits well, not too bulky or baggy.

December 28, 2021

Great except for the cut under the arms in the XXL....

This size, while large enough for me, has a large gap of fabric under the arms which makes it unworkable. I very much appreciate Patagonia trying to work into larger sizes. I have been a customer for over 40 years and wear my items for decades. As I have always been on the edge of XL, the larger sizes give me options.

December 27, 2021

Cozy and professional

I wanted a vest to layer over both casual weekend clothes and more formal professional outfits for my teaching job. The Better Sweater Vest fits over a layer of clothes without looking tight or boxy.

December 22, 2021

Super comfy

The vest is super comfy and goes well underneath the jacket for a good layering for the cold winter.

Warm vest

I love this vest. It is a fitted vest, runs small but fits perfectly. I love the outside pockets. Only change I would make to this vest is to make a small inside pocket for keys, cards, etc.

I love this vest. I've hardly taken it off since I received it. The fit is fantastic, the vest is warm, the workmanship is impeccable, the company one I love to support. Highly recommended.

November 28, 2021

Awesome vest!

I needed something for around the house to keep me warm, but a full-coverage piece was too much. Since I already have a bunch of Patagonia outerwear, I decided to invest in a comfy, warm vest. It's perfect! Also makes a great layering piece on cold days outdoors.

Warm vest - happy I purchased

This vest is soft and warm. The material inside the collar and pockets is very soft, it feels like velvet. It fits true to size, but take note it is body fitting. I saw some reviews that mentioned pilling but I haven't had any yet, even after wearing a few days a week and a few washes.

November 1, 2021

Keeps my hands happy

Soft pockets, the zipper is soft on hands shoving in and out of the pockets. Good & warm around neck too. Also can be very useful layer under jacket or rain jacket. Snug not bulky. Nice colors, keep 'em coming!

I workout at Marina on the coast of Maine and even in the summer, it tends to be chilly. This vest is a lifesaver! I can wear with anything, and it looks great and keeps me warm. Before and after work I am either hiking or mountain biking and I have worn the vest for both, at times. You really can not go wrong.

Snug & pretty!

I have been buying your clothes for years & I love them & your philosophy of re-using materials. I grew up on a farm in New Zealand, wearing woolen jerseys & patched jeans. My mum was always mending socks & knees & elbows on our clothes.

Just right

Fits well. Like the length in the back. Perfect for those cooler days when I need an extra layer on my torso.

Smart look!

The Better Sweater Vest is going to be a "go to" for indoor chilly mornings! When adding a layer over a shirt is needed, it's perfect on my walks.

Love my Patagonia Vest but...

I have every color of this vest and love them all! I hesitate to even say anything negative but every one I have bought gets the little nubby balls all over it. Patagonia replaces them no questions but it is a hassle to have to do before it is even a year old. Not sure what happens and I will continue to buy these always.....just hope they'll ...

Hey Ann! We're sorry to hear you're having pilling issues. It's a very simple fix. You can check out our video on how to take care of it [here](

Love but already pilling

I just bought this about a week ago from a local store where I live and its already pilling. I wish the quality was better for the price. I love these vests and would buy more, but I cant justify it if its going to pill after one week of normal use.

Hello Krystal, thank you for your feedback and we're sorry to hear your fleece has pilled after a week. Unfortunately, all fleeces have a tendency to pill. We recommend washing your fleeces by hand in cool-cold water or separately in your washing machine on the gentle cycle. It's best to lay it flat to dry rather than place it in the dryer. Of course, you are absolutely welcome to [return]( it under warranty if needed.

Super warm

Great vest. Very warm. Like the pockets, inside and out.

Exactly what I wanted

I bought this best because my partner bought me the better sweater jacket. Which I love. The vest is more freeing of the arms and feels more comfortable to wear in my home since Im working from home. I love the color because it wont fade over time like black. Im a tech worker in the San Francisco Bay Area so everyone wears it. I ordered a Large bec... Read Moreause I saw in the reviews that it ran small. Well it definitely didnt in my case. I had to go in person to a retail location to exchange it. Which was a bit annoying. But they were super nice and Im thrilled to have it in the right size now.

Nice and Warm

I like this vest for wearing around the house so I keep the chill off me and don't have to run the furnace constantly. My son has one for work as he is a realtor, out and about. My daughter-in-law has one for work and for around the house. Everyone has appreciated these vests as gifts. My son's was stolen and he ordered a new one for hims... Read Moreelf !

I love this. I am 5 foot 4 inches about 155 lbs. Bust 41 inches Waist 32 inches Hips 40 inches I could have worn a medium but it would have fit a bit tighter than I would prefer. Would buy in every color if I could justify the price. I usually just wear with a solid colored long sleeve shirt and fins its very slimy/flattering. Adds a bit of warmth... Read More, not a ton. Pockets are roomy and surprisingly soft.

Warm hug

I bought this to wear at work on cold days as our office door continually opens letting in cold air. The fabric is soft, and feels like a hug when wearing. I only wish it had a pocket in the left lapel area (or right) for a phone. Otherwise I love it!

February 16, 2021

very warm

I initially bought a Medium, which I typically wear. The arm holes were too large for me. The Small is a much slimmer fit which I like!

February 11, 2021

Really nice vest

I love this vest! It's comfortable, light-weight, and attractive / fitted. Not heavy or bulky but still provides a thin extra layer of warmth. Good for walking, biking, or just casual wear. I'm 5'4" and 112 lbs and like the XS fit. Happy to support a company whose mission is environmentally conscious.

Snug and Toasty

This vest is soft, and warm, and easy to wear everyday . I thought that the down vest was going to be this part of my wardrobe, but the Better Sweater vest is working for me.

February 8, 2021

Comfortable and smart

It's a wonderfully warm vest. Nicely waisted so it's flattering to my shape. Colour is neutral so it complements most of my casual and every day outfits.

February 7, 2021

Love it!

Keeps me warm when I walk my dog and also wear it inside the house and to work sometimes. Will get another one soon.

February 4, 2021

Warm and comfy!

It is fit the body, I could have size up for a Medium but like how the small fits. If you dont like it tight size up!

Wonderful Vest

My husband asked, what did I wear before I got this vest? I wear it constantly l i ordered a second one. Warm without being too heavy.

February 2, 2021

Sizing has changed

I've numerous vests and jackets (same brand and model) and the size has reduced sense my last purchase... returned.

January 31, 2021

Just what I needed

Fits good and you can tell its made well (like all Patagonia products). I wear it almost everyday over a long sleeve shirt and I am set, its enough even on a colder day.

January 29, 2021

Great fit and nice fabric

Best vest of the bunch!

January 26, 2021

Love it, its so warm

I love it, I will definitely buy another one.

January 18, 2021

Classic look

I am pleased with the better sweater vest, both in fit and color. Since the vest is described as slim fit, I was glad that it is offered in an XXL. I typically dont zip it, and a previous one I have in an XL, made that a bit too uncomfortable. Its cozy and well made. Would highly recommend as a nice addition to your casual wardrobe.

Perfect vest!

I love wearing vests in the winter. This vest is perfect for layering and not too bulky, I had to return a Christmas gift and Customer Service was so helpful in finding just what I wanted.

January 5, 2021

Comfy and war

Bought for my wife as a gift. She loves it!

January 4, 2021

Warm and comfortable

Bought this for my mother in law, she absolutely loves it. States its comfortable and warm. She lives in SoCal.

Comfortable fleece vest.

Got this as a present for my sister and she loves it. Fits snug enough for her. Easy casual wear and she like the comfort of the fleece. Easy care is a plus.

January 2, 2021

the best vest

I love the Patagonia Vest. I have two now and will always have at least one. I use it for casual wear but also to ride my horse. It's form fitting and provides just enough warmth from the cold.

December 29, 2020

Great vest

I was hesitant to purchase this vest because the reviews said it ran small or too large. I find the fit to be perfect as I can wear it over sweaters as well as T shirts!! Love it!!!!

December 27, 2020

Great layering piece

I bought it to wear over top of flannels. It looks great, fits great, and keeps me warm.

Keeping the Mrs. Warm and Happy

Bought a second vest for my wife for fly fishing in cold weather. She didnt want to wear the last one I bought fishing fearing she might get a hook stuck in it. Know she has it covered.
