1. The hoodie is seen through when held up to light. Not nearly as heavy as one might expect from the picture. But this does not mean it is not warm. Except the side panels, the hoodie is lined with wool front and back. Would be a good midlayer even in winter. But doubt would block any wind.
2. I got black. But the color is adulterated with an unsavory red. So it is a kind of a reddish black, very much like the result of washing black and red together and the color ran.
3. The size definitely runs small. Make sure you size up. I usually wear XL hoodies (6'3 210lbs) with ample room. This one however wraps around body with virtually no room in between. I think even an XXL of this hoodie would not be very roomy.
4. The length is good though. Probably the longest of I've ever had, and to me it is a good thing.
