A warm, low-bulk full-zip jacket made of soft, sweater-knit 100 % recycled polyester fleece. Fair Trade Certified™ sewn. That´s a brief description of the Patagonia Better Sweater Fleece Jacket. But there is just a lot more to this jacket.
With a sweater-knit face and moisture-wicking fleece interior for warmth, the Patagonia Better Sweater™ Jacket can be worn over a shirt as urban outerwear or layered under a shell in the backcountry. Soft and bulk-free, it’s made of 10-oz 100 % recycled polyester fleece dyed with a low-impact process that significantly reduces the use of dyestuffs, energy and water compared to conventional dyeing methods. Flat-seam construction reduces bulk and helps to eliminate seam chafe. A zippered left-chest pocket secures small valuables, and zippered handwarmer pockets keep fingers toasty. The stand-up collar has a zipper garage so your neck stays comfortable, while raglan sleeves provide pack-wearing comfort. Shape-holding, abrasion-resistant micro-polyester jersey trims the collar, cuffs and hem. And it’s also Fair Trade Certified™ sewn, which means the people who made it earned a premium for their labour. It provides a hip length. Now it´s all on you to get a perfect jacket for new adventures.
