Patagonia Men’s Performance Better Sweater™ 1/4-Zip Fleece 25980
Patagonia Men’s Performance Better Sweater™ 1/4-Zip Fleece is lightweight, warm and motion-friendly. This dynamic pullover is made from 100% polyester fleece fabric with a sweater-knit face and a cozy interior throughout the body and collar so you can scramble talus all day and still look presentable for a trip downtown. For stretch and durability, side panels use Polartec® Power Stretch™ polyester/elastane jersey, which has a tough jersey face and fleece backing for a skin-friendly feel. The raglan sleeve design, with underarm gussets, allows a full range of mobility. Details include flat-seam construction to reduce bulk and help eliminate seam chafe, a vertical zippered left chest pocket that is earbud-compatible, and a quarter-zip design with a zip-through collar for additional warmth and protection. Elasticized cuffs and hem seal in your heat and resist abrasion. It’s also Fair Trade Certified™ sewn, which means the people who made it earned a premium for their labor. Hip length.
