I scored a Patagoinia vest in a thrift store 15 or so years ago. I have loved it ever since. It finally came time to replace it. I hemmed and hawed about buying new, but as I loved the old one so much and it lasted so long, I figured it was worth it.
The new one looks about the same in the pictures but has a very different fit and feel. It feels baggy and shapeless, whereas the other one fitted beautifully. The material is different and seemed less breathable (though recycling fleece is laudable); the pockets, whilst still capacious, bulge out more and are harder to unzip. I'm really disappointed.
Quick delivery and great quality!
The Patagonia better sweater vest is comfy. It can be dressed up or down. It is soft like a sweater. If you want a snug fit go with your regular size otherwise size up...you will love it!
My grandson suggested this beauty for his wife. I wish it were my size so I could try it on. I have high regard for Patagonia merchandise. Beautiful vest.
Love this vest. Great fit and very comfortable. Perfect for golf and any outdoor activity!
