Patagonia Better Sweater

Northwest Pearls: Patagonia Better Sweater If you want to see more pictures from the day that picture was taken, check out my guest post at North Left Coast!

I've been needing a fleece jacket for a few months. I didn't have a lightweight jacket that was warm enough, and I wanted something to layer under my rain jacket/wind breaker. So I looked at Patagonia, Colombia, The North Face, and Arc'teryx fleece jackets.

The fleece that fit me the best, and I liked the most, was the Patagonia Better Sweater. I wanted a neutral color so I bought a black one; and I bought a full-zip fleece because I knew that I didn't want to be pulling it over my head to take it on and off, but it does come in a 1/4 zip version.

I was hesitant to spend the money, but it's something I've been looking to buy for a few months. And since I've bought it, I've worn it more than all my other coats or jackets combined. It blocks the wind fairly well, and it keeps me warm outside. If I wear it in a car or inside a store, I usually get hot enough that I need to take it off.

It was a good buy and I'm glad I finally bought it.

Do you have a fleece jacket you like?
