Love it
Review by Aida

I love my jacket. Fits great, the orange color is my favorite and I have gotten tons of compliments. I also ordered it in black and gray. Highly recommend it.

Awesome jacket!
Review by LLKight

I have this jacket in black and recently bought it in grey. I love it! It’s very soft and quite warm. I usually wear a small, but purchased it in medium as I think it runs a bit small. The medium is still “ snug”. I believe it’s far superior to other jackets that resemble it. I also found the customer service at Stio to be excellent. Very fast shipping. I high recommend this jacket.

Perfect Gift for my Wife
Review by Brian

My wife had been looking for a good fleece for sometime. I purchased the Sweetwater Fleece for her due to the slimming features of the jacket because the others she looked at had been so bulky. She absolutely loves it and its great for any occasion. Great job STIO!

not the right fit
Review by Emmers

This "jacket" is beautiful and sooo soft and I wish so badly that it fit me. I am 5'3 130lbs of retired athlete now a mom, and the medium fit great except it was too long. I dont normally think i have a short torso, but with this jacket i couldn't justify keeping it without wanting to wear it every single day. Maybe STIO will come out with a petite line! :o)

Review by Michelle

I have been wanting a flattering fleece for awhile. I love how the Patagonia Better Sweater looks but it was very unflattering on me. In my search for something similar, I found this and think that it is even better than the better sweater. It is really flattering and the inside is very soft and cozy.

Great color selection!
Review by Scootferrari

I really wanted to like this jacket but boxier styles are better for me. The fit was too tight and constricting, so I was sad to return it.

Forcing myself to wear other tops
Review by AC

I love this jacket. It is warm and super comfortable. I've worn my around the house, as a light jacket out, and even over scrubs--it looks great over everything thus far, and I've gotten compliments from multiple people about its looks. Honestly I have probably worn this almost every day since I got it and am currently contemplating getting it in another color just so people realize I have more than one top in my wardrobe. Or maybe so I can turn one into a sleep top and never be fleeceless. #fleeceaholic

Fall Perfect
Review by Emme NW

I have not heard of this brand before receiving a catalog. Normally I don't order from companies I'm not familiar with but when I started browsing this item caught my eye, especially the color Rooibos tea a rich pumpkin color perfect for fall. When I received the order the jacket was exactly as described. I am 5'3" 118lb and small fits nicely.

out of many brands this one is tops
Review by Barbara

I've tried many brands but find this fleece to be tops. I am very pleased with the fit, the quality, the style -- everything about it.

Better than Patagonia's Better Sweater
Review by Jackie

This is a warm fleece that does not pill. It is a little bit warmer than Patagonia's better sweater, but not SO warm that you are sweating in it. I got the blueish color which is a little more turquoise looking in real life. I'm 5'2", 136 lbs and the medium fits very well, although sleeves are about 2 inches too long.

Didn't disappoint
Review by Lisa Smiley

This is my 3rd Sweetwater fleece (the other two being pullovers). I absolutely love the zip up and the Roobios Tea color is gorgeous. Perfect for red heads. I found the cut to be slimming and not bulky at all. Please keep making more of these!

Perfect Jacket
Review by Val

I purchased this item with hesitation as I don't usually purchase black jackets, glad I did, the colors are great, super soft and comfy, highly recommend.

loved it but returned it!! Sorry
Review by Elaine Chambers

I loved it but it was too large. I will order it later in the smaller size. Great quality material, and style

Love it - best value and fit
Review by JJ

I LOVE this jacket! I have several Patagonia and North Face jackets, but Stio is my new favorite. This Stio jacket is so soft and very moveable. The fit is perfect and the cut is feminine and flattering. I love that the back is longer. I normally wear a small and this cut was true to size (compared with the Stio trim fit which feels tight). It's very warm but breathable. I wear this jacket all the time and have received so many compliments. I'm thinking about getting a second color. Would definitely recommend.

great fleece
Review by mdean

After becoming completely disenchanted with Patagonia's products (poor quality, inconsistent sizing, not worth the price), I decided to try this jacket. It's great! The rooibos tea color is beautiful; my normal size, L, fits well everywhere (the sleeves are a tad long, but not by much, and I'd rather have them that length than shorter). The material is thick, soft, and warm. Far superior to the competition! For reference I am 5'4", 155 lbs.

Great Purchase!
Review by Anne Marie

I love the Sweetwater Fleece Jacket! It's very well made, the fleece is extremely soft and of a high quality and the jacket fits perfectly. I also like the stand-up collar. It keeps my neck warm on a cool, breezy day. I'm 5'6", 116 lbs. and bought a size medium - but, only because I don't like tight-fitting clothing.

Coziest Fleece
Review by Courtney

This is the coziest fleece jacket!! I wear it all the time and it is a great layering piece under my denim jacket for the office and cant wait to shred the slopes in it!!

The best
Review by Alex

This is my new favorite. I like it way better than the Patagonia look-alike because it's cozier, thicker, and better tailored for a feminine fit. I am 5'4 115 and bought an XS. It's flattering and slim enough that I can wear it under puffy coats for really cold days. I'm buying one for my mom.

Love the cut of this jacket
Review by Desert Dreamer

I really like the cut of this jacket because it comes down a little longer in the back. However, I found that the sizing is a little different compared to Stio's other sweetwater items. For this item, I had to go a size down. It works out perfect for me under a lightweight shell.

Warm and cozy, good for chilly weather
Review by cm

The lining on this jacket is super soft and super warm, and was able to keep me from getting cold on the chilliest of the fall days without retaining too much heat and causing me discomfort. It runs a little small around the arms so if you have any doubts it may be best to try a size larger than you suspect yourself to be. Cozy is a perfect word for this garment.

I probably should have returned this item - bulkier than it appears in the catalogue and the fit is quite frumpy looking on my small frame
Review by Kate

I really like the products I've purchased in the past but this purchase was a mistake - the fleece is too thick and the fit on my 5'4" slender frame looks frumpy.

Function Meets Fashion
Review by Hillary - Staff

I'm a sucker for sweater fleece, but this jacket sets the bar high. It has all of the cozy and technical properties of fleece, but with feminine lines and a drop tail hem for an ultra-flattering fit.

Great jacket for almost any activity
Review by Staff - Sarah

This jacket has quickly become my 'go-to' for Fall. While I am also in love with my Sweetwater Fleece Hoodie, this new Sweetwater zip-up option is an easy-on option when you're on-the-go. The shape of this jacket is flattering without being too fitted, instantly creating a more refined look even when you're in gym clothes. Another great feature worth mentioning is the hi-lo back, which offers better coverage in the back. Five stars for its warmth, utility and simplicity.

Classic fleece
Review by Caroline - Staff

This is a great fall layer when you aren't quite ready to dive into insulation. It feels great against the skin. I love this cozy fleece - it makes me want to snuggle up by the fire - a must have!

awesome fleece
Review by Di

Just bought it and I'm in love. The back covers the butt to keep it warm. It's soft and fits perfectly. The color is great you can wear it with pretty much anything. I highly recommend it. I don't think the price is bad for what you get.

My new go to jacket
Review by Khen

This jacket is soft and so easy to wear. It looks great with jeans, but is also awesome for just hanging out at home. I think I have worn mine almost every day this fall.

The feminine cut and longer back length is a definite plus!

Perfect warm layer!
Review by Liza T - Staff

Out of the three Sweetwater styles this full zip is my favorite! The fabric is soft and thick. It's been my go to extra layer for outside, at home, and at work. I like not having a hoody. Feels a little more business than casual when I wear around town. The extra length in the back in great, providing extra coverage against the elements. I loved it so much I got it in both the Breen and Italian Plum colors! Great by itself and killer under a shell!

Looks great, feels great
Review by Cynthia

Attractive jacket. Well made. Looks great over other Stio tops for an athletic fit that will look good antwhere. I wish the cut of the jacket was 1-2" longer in torso and arms, but I'm 5'10" and thin so I bought a size small. The medium was a little too baggy for an attractive fit.
