A classic favorite of sailors both on and off the water. The Patagonia Women's 1/4 Zip Better Sweater combines the aesthetic of wool with the easy care of polyester fleece to make the ultimate layering piece. Can be worn as a midlayer or jacket.
The Better Sweater fleece has a sweater-knit face that slides easily under a shell and a soft fleecy interior that can be layered or worn next to the skin. Has supple micropolyester jersey fabric trims the wind flap, cuffs and hem.

Whether its fall cruising, frostbiting or a run out on an errand the Patagonia Better Sweater is my favorite. Cozy warm fleece on the inside and sweater knit on the outside. The quarter zip is great on those downwind legs when its starts to get a little warm- easy way to cool off without having to shed a layer. Its the perfect weight to wear alone or a fall or spring day or to layer under heavier pieces during the coldest parts of winter.
The sleeves are slightly long on me though, I'm 5'3" and wear the medium. These sweaters also can pill quite a bit over time which can be bothersome if you're wearing out and about and not just under sailing gear.
- warm, stylish
- sweater can pill over time
