Reviewed by Mike from Ottawa, ON on Wednesday, April 9, 2014Great quality. XXL fit perfectly. I'm 6'5" and 225lbs. Would be nice to have had a few more pockets but that's a small quibble. The price Sierra had on this when I purchased made the purchase even nicer but this is such a good jacket that even if I'd have paid more, I'd have been happy.
Reviewed by TRWILLIAMSON from MONTANA on Saturday, March 15, 2014Bought this "sweater", really an all mountain jacket, and ran it through its paces this week. It performed flawlessly in all conditions. One day, sun and temperate temps. Perfect. Next day, rain mixed with slush. Perfect. Next day, dumping giant fluff balls of snow. Perfect. This jacket stays warm and dry in ALL conditions. But be prepared to not wear a ton underneath this jacket as it is not needed. Personally I skied with a single, thin wool base layer and then the Vinje. No problems over heating at all. Hood works extremely well in inclement weather and is easily removed when the skies are clear. I am 6'3" and weigh 230 lbs. and bought a size up with the XXL. It is a perfect fit. My only complaint, and is really a personal preference, is that there is a lack of a Napoleon (chest) pocket on either the outside or the inside.
Reviewed by Omen from PDX on Tuesday, March 11, 2014This jacket is very nice. It is very well made with great attention to detail. There is a full lining including the hood and pockets. It offers great weather protection with the DWR/ nano treatment shedding water excellently, although the lining in the hood will get wet if worn down on the back while raining (duh). The jacket is fairly heavy but also very comfortable with an excellent cut. All of the hardware is top notch and obviously built to last. Looking forward to wearing this for a long time. Great deal from STP couldn't pass it up.
Reviewed by John from Greenville SC on Thursday, March 6, 2014This is probably the nicest piece of clothing It looks great and is extremely well made. I am 6'1", 185 lbs. and wear a size 16-35 dress shirt and the large is perfect. I think this is a category busting garment; part sweater, part jacket, part garment and part technical outer wear from a company that is distinguished as a supplier for the US and Norwegian Olympic Teams. I like that it accomplishes this without looking synthetic. I have found it to be very warm, water resistant and totally wind prof, but quite breathable and suited to cool as well as cold temperatures.
Reviewed by Gilligan, the dog walker from Virginia on Sunday, February 23, 2014This sweater is more like a wool lined jacket. VERY well made. Love the look and style. Craftsmanship is great. Not sure about the hood. I can't get it to snap and it has a string fastener system that I have yet to figure out. As near as I can tell the snaps on the hood don't snap to the sweater, but I am not a hood guy anyway. I love the jacket. I have a xl Dale zip up sweater and it fits fine. However, I needed an extra, extra large on this sweater. Love the sweater and the Dale quality. Love the subdued colors. Definitely would buy it again. I would but it in Navy with a white stripe. Dale designers usually have too much design and decorations. that is a turn off, however the quality is the best I have seen. I am a Dale fan.
Question & Answer
“is the windstopper membrane bonded to the wool, or it's a separate lining? in another word, the description said "fully lined", but did not say what is the lining material, or how is it lined--separate or bonded, that is. is it the same as the windstopper membrane?”
Membrane is totally transparent--cannot be seen or felt. Certainly not bonded to wool, rather, a part of the handsome, logo-emblazoned slippery lining material. First class; no clunky evidence of mysterious membrane
The description says "colors available - black/white/red" . i don't see any white on the picture. how does it look in real life?
What you see is it: Body black with Red piping. Must be confused with another of their snowflake sweaters.
“I have a chest of 36,61 in approximately. For this sweater, would you recommend me a medium or small size? Is this true to size or a slim fit size? Thanks!”
A small fits chest sizes 34-36 inches. If you hover your mouse over or click on the sizes the chest sizes are displayed. I.E. Sizes Available: S (Chest 34-36
It is true to size.
