this thing is very heavy, its not the softest weave, but it looks great and seems like it will hold up a long time. as other reviewers have said it seems to run a little large, not so much in the length, but more in the width. I don't know how much use i'll get out of it, it's so thick that it would be overkill for most of the texas winter.

I Like It! Nice/tight weave that should hold up. The sizing is realistic & fits well. The only negative I'd give it & it's VERY minor is the faux leather trim, but you knew it was Faux when ya bought it so not a big deal. The trim is of good quality & should also hold up just fine. Give it a go, you won't regret.

The fit and quality is very good but you wouldn't know it was Merino wool by the feel. It has a touch much more like plain old wool and doesn't feel that good against your skin but I'll be wearing it in the fall and winter over a lighter shirt so it should be OK.

Great quality, this is a thick sweater and is about as tough as it can be, but isn't terribly itchy. It looks quite nice, too. It may very well be a bit oversized. I expected this since filson is a hunting/outdoor sports clothier, and similar brands tend to run large. So I ordered a small instead of my standard medium (I have a 40 inch chest). The small fits as I would like, snug but not tight, especially good since wool sweaters tend to stretch a bit. I could've worn a medium fine I think, but the snugger small will be better for layering under a coat, and looks better with properly fitted pants, though the medium may have been fine with jeans.

This dressy/casual sweater is priced in a way that keeps Sierra Trading Post customers coming back. The sweater was priced elsewhere on the internet at the full price. The sweater is a little heavier than I expected and is a little more short-waisted than I would have preferred, but it is the high quality product at a deep discount that I have come to expect. The sweater should be perfect for football games and other outdoor activities in the late fall or early winter north of the Mason-Dixon Line, but it's likely too heavy here in the Deep South. Promises to make a great gift for my son.
