Vinje Sweater is not a Wimp!

Reviewed by Captain Dave from The State of Maine on Thursday, February 6, 2014
This sweater is built with the usual Dale style and quality that I had come to expect. It is more of a sweater/jacket than a sweater. This is not some wimpy and stylish item to try to look "cool" in for the honeys and bunnies while sitting around the fireplace at the lodge sipping some cutesy named cocktail. You will want to be outside moving when you wear this. It is ruggedly designed and constructed. There is no foo-foo included. This thing means business, and just happens to look good while doing so. It is not cheap, but it is not made in Chine either, if you get my drift.

The very functional and effective hood folds flat across the back when not in use or it can be removed completely.

As stated in an earlier review, this sweater/jacket runs a bit small. Dale usually runs very6 true to size, but this is an exception. I am normally a size L, but that was a bit snug around the middle. The XL is perfect and the arm length on the sweater/jacket is right to the base of my thumb, thus allowing the cuff to stay over the top of my gloves even with my elbows bent.

This sweater/jacket works extremely well layered over a close fitting medium or heavy weight synthetic turtle neck. I am thrilled to have gotten such a great deal on such a high quality functional piece of wearing apparel. "STP" really came through for me again with this deal.
