User Reviews

  • This jacket will keep you warm and cozy!
  • The material is able to retain its softness, even after machine washes.
  • The kangaroo-style pocket will keep your hands warm in the coldest of temperatures.

Expert Reviews

  • Despite the apparent thinness of the material, this jacket will keep you warm.
  • Comfortable fleece material.
  • Weighs a little less than a pound for ease and convenience.
  • Great product for layering on chilly nights.
  • While fleece, in general, is not very wind resistant, in this case the longer fibers do tend to provide a little protection.

Reasons NOT to buy:

User Reviews

  • Sizing is a bit snug, so you will need to order or purchase a size-up.
  • The sleeve length tends to be short for most people.
  • The material feels thinner than other Patagonia fleece jackets, which can help in convenience, but may not provide adequate warmth for desired purpose.
  • Fabric provides very little wind protection so make sure to bring a wind breaking layer.
  • Length of the pullover may be a bit short depending on body type.

Expert Reviews

  • Material is not breathable enough for aerobic activities.
  • The shorter arm length may lead to problems in determining which size to buy.
  • Tighter fit in the shoulder and torso area.


The Snap-T pullover is a ‘re’ make on the classic Synchilla fleece offered by Patagonia. The warm fleece is suitable for layering, and ensures comfort on cold nights. Despite having a lighter material and some discrepancies in sizing, this fleece will be sure to get the job done by providing a cozy fit and an easy-to-pack jacket.
