Best Quarter-Zip Sweaters for Men

Looking for the perfect pullover to add to your wardrobe? Let us make a case for the quarter zip. It offers the stay-put, functional fit of a hoodie but in a more sophisticated design. Traditional fleece styles look great with jeans and loafers, while other, more form-fitting options are optimal for exercise (they’ll help keep you warm without any added bulk as you run, jump or squat).  Whatever the occasion, we’ve got you covered. Ahead, we’ve rounded up the best quarter-zip sweaters for men on the market from top brands like Under Armour. Even better, they’re all pretty affordable.
