Patagonia Better Sweater Hoodie - Men'sis rated4.0out of5by2.
Rated4out of5byfromGood times!Very comfortable and thick fleece that is good for anywhere from mid-30 to 50 degrees. It's not great for keeping wind out, but is a sweet layer underneath a shell. Wore this snowboarding underneath a good jacket as a second layer (with a dri-fit t-shirt underneath) and felt absolutely nothing in terms of wind or cold. Sleeves fit just right (5'9" 165 but a mildly athletic build) in a size S. Be warned, I wear a 40 suit jacket size but the size S fits well.

Rated4out of5byfromMore Good Than BadI bought this product for myself as a gift because I enjoy wearing hooded, zip-up sweaters for comfort and versatility. I wanted it for winter, not necessarily to wear outside, but to stay warm walking around campus and during my day-to-day life. I didn't wear it outside, but liked it a lot in the store and dressing room- I still do. The only issue I've noticed is that although it is nice and thick, soft, and warm, it has no ability to protect from wind. I prefer wool blends, cotton, etc. over Goretex, shells, waterproof but "breathable" fabrics because they aren't really that breathable. I really like the sweater, don't get me wrong, but I can be in my car, warm, get out, be warm, and a gust of wind will blow right through and I'll be cold for a minute.
