I have five or six of the sweaters and have bought 1 or 2 every year for the last few years. I'd have more but the color selection is limited and my wife already thinks I have too many. The weight is perfect. I have one with me almost every working day of the year to keep me from freezing to death between cases at the hospital. It fits nicely under a coat and jacket and on occasion I have woven worn it under a suit coat. The cashmere knit is impeccable and extraordinarily soft. I like the fit. The sleeves have plenty of length and it hangs well, not like the typical hoodie bag silhouette. I would recommend picking the larger size if you are deciding between a larger and smaller size. Durability has been good. They have taken quite a bit of abuse being stuffed into bags, doing extra mid-layer duty on a ski day, or left on the floor of the car by accident and hold up fine without even a wrinkle. Additionally, they remain pretty much stink free even after days of use. The zippers have been trouble free. The hood is a great nap facilitating feature and I can pretend that I'm in my elven cloak and can't be seen although I can't confirm any magical powers. The price is incredible especially with one Sierra's discounts considering it is a cashmere sweater. I have much more expensive cashmere sweaters which aren't significantly better. The only down side is that after having a cashmere hoodie, there are no wool or cotton substitutes that stand up and as far as Google can tell, this is the only one on the market.

I ordered two of these and both had oddly short torsos and extremely long sleeves. They were a tissue weight sweater, more appropriate for a women's layering piece than a men's hoodie. A finer gauge yarn with not quite a tight enough knit to provided the coverage that was needed. Both were sent back...
