The Patagonia Women's Better Sweater Vest is a casual vest for stepping out on the town on a chilly afternoon. The Better Sweater fabric has done it yet again, this time in a hip length vest that pairs with your favorite base layer and pair of jeans. The sweater-knit face looks clean and casual on the outside, while the fleecy inside is soft and warm against the body. The slim fit is great for everyday wear with feminine seaming that won't make it look like you just rolled out of bed. The zippered handwarmer pockets hold onto your wallet and keys as you explore the town or go for a stroll around the park.

Since receiving this vest in January, I am wearing it all the time. I keep the thermostat in the mid-60s in the winter, so this is the perfect layer indoors, and it adds welcome extra warmth to a fleece jacket for outside activities. I really like the interior pockets (deep!) for carrying my phone. I got the raw linen color - it goes with everything - and I am contemplating getting the navy blue as well. Before I got this vest I was a big fan of cardigans and flannel over-shirts in the fall and winter, but now I see the benefit to not having bulky sleeves. I like my clothes to fit loosely, so I bought a Large - even though I do not zip it very often, this is a more fitted item which makes the Large perfect for my size 6-8 frame.

Good quality item. I am not a big Patagonia fanboy, but have had a couple fleece items from them over the years and their quality is usually good. Daughter wanted this "must have" wardrobe item, so I was tasked to find it, and found it on MooseJaw. Not sure if they only come in slim fit, but the one we got was slim fit and I did not recall seeing that in the description. Not a big problem, but would have likely gone up a size if I had known. Daughter likes it fine, but it is a little snug and can't be worn over a sweater or thicker shirt.
This vest is exactly what I thought it would be. It's extremely soft and comfortable. If you are curious about size, I am 5'6" 120 lbs and I got a small. I am typically an x-small/small in most vests and jackets. It fits perfectly with just a basic cotton long sleeve shirt under it. I probably couldn't add any more layers or it would be too snug. Overall, I am so glad I bought it!
This vest is so warm and cozy. Sort of a cross between a sweater and a fleece, flat knit on outside but fleece inside. i feel like a sock monkey whenever i wear it. Ordered this to wear around campus and find myself living in it. Patagonia quality is awesome. Hard to come by and the run out of best colors and sizes quickly every year. If they have your preference grab it quick!
Absolutely love this Patagonia product. It is so cute and it goes with every outfit. This vest is high quality. It is very warm and soft, but not bulky. The price of this product was a bargain. I am very pleased with Moosejaw's customer service and fast shipping. I always come here to get my Patagonia products. Thanks for all you do, Moosejaw!
Nice vest! Bought 4 of them for uniforms for staff. They love them, looks and performance. They look like heavy wool but are soft, light and comfortable. Our dog sled touring company will be showing off these vests all season! (www.pagosadog.com)
I am a big, big fan of Patagonia anyway, but this vest is easily one of my favorite products. I have Black already and love it so much so I ordered Raw Linen. I have the 1/4 button up in Raw Linen and I think the color is great - it's like a creamy whitish color. This vest is awesome for cool days where you want an extra layer. It is (of course) very cute worn casual but it is also very functional. I also wear it hiking and kayaking for some additional warmth and it is very comfortable to move around in and not bulky (like some of the other vests). I am 5'4 135 and average/athletic build and the medium is great for me! I didn't want my vest super tight and I like some room for layering. I recommend this product for sure.
