Product Information

The Patagonia Better Sweater Vest is an easy-wearing, bulk-free vest that thrives as urban outerwear or layered in the backcountry under a shell. Made of a knitted, heathered polyester fleece dyed with a low-impact process that significantly reduces the use of dyestuffs, energy and water compared to conventional dyeing methods.

The well-rounded Better Sweater Vest adds a bulk-free layer of warmth and comfort to any fire-lit guitar session. Soft, highly insulative and durable, this vest has a plush fleece interior that feels broken in and a resilient sweater-knit face that resembles wool. Made of quick-drying bluesign approved 100% polyester, it’s dyed with a low-impact process that significantly reduces the use of dyestuffs, energy and water compared to conventional dyeing methods. A stand-up collar warms your neck and a vertical chest pocket holds the day's essentials. With offset shoulder seams for pack-wearing comfort and micropolyester jersey trim at the armholes, hem and back of neck. Fair Trade Certified sewing and fleece fabric is bluesign approved.

Customer Questions & Answers
  • I had bought this last season and the fleece has started pilling. Any recommendations on how to remove that?

    Pilling usually occurs from extended wear, washing, and friction points like backpack or luggage straps.  To prevent pilling, it is recommended to wash that item either by hand in cool to cold water, or separately in hyour washing machine on a gentle cycle.  It is best to lay it flat to dry rather than place in the dryer where the fabric can eaisly get unbraided.

    To remove pilling that has already occurred, a pill shaver or sweater stone is an excellent tool, and can help the vest look brand new.   Those can be purchased at most department stores or found doing a quick web search.
