Patagonia Lightweight Synchilla vs. Synchilla

Patagonia Men's Lightweight Synchilla Snap-T Pullover and the Men's Synchilla Snap-T Fleece Pullover, as you can probably already tell by the name, are extremely similar. These jackets are two of Patagonia's most popular selling styles. Both of these jackets are made of 100% polyester fleece, and both of these jackets are essentially identical in terms of aesthetics. The accent pocket flap and the Patagonia brand logo are on the left chest on both, and the collar, wrist and waist trim are very similar. Both jackets are pullovers, have the same fit, and both have snap buttons to open or close the opening around the neck. The only true difference is that the Lightweight Synchilla Snap-T is simply made of a lighter weight fleece than the regular Synchilla Snap-T.

Making a decision on which jacket is for you is simple. Would you rather have a lighter weight fleece for most seasons, or a regular weight fleece to keep you extra warm when it is cold out? Price may also be a factor, since the Lightweight Synchilla Snap-T is only $99, and the Synchilla Snap-T is $119. Different color options are also available for each style, so for some the decision may come down to which color you like best.
