    I really prefer wool to synthetics so i had been looking for a zip front wool sweater for a layer when hiking. This jacket is perfect. Lightweight, form fitting, and clearly designed for athletic wear (NOT a fashion sweater), it's exactly the right piece for my needs. Fits me great, really comfy and I just washed it -- it survived. :)

    I am 5'4" with broad shoulders, about 128lbs. This jacket has a great fit (runs true to size) and it super cute. The hood fits over my head, which is a great improvement over older models. I will be able to wear it year-round.

    This is a very high quality garnet -- good fit and beautiful materials. The only reason I sent it back was that the color was not good on me.

    I recently placed an order with lots of Smartwool and Icebeaker gear. Overall, I thought the Smartwool was superior in almost every way, although I do wear lots of icebreaker base layers. This excellent jacket was an exception. The cut, weight, fabric and finish were really perfect. Somehow it was very fitted and flattering while being roomy enough to very comfortably fit another top underneath. I'm actually sending it off to a daughter at college, but after trying it on I really didn't want to take it off and am about to order myself one in another color. The blue we ordered seems to be sold out but it was a lovely color.

    My husband gave me one of these for Christmas. I adore it. The feel of the fabric is very rich, soft, and cozy. I find the fit to be body-skimming, not at all tight but not boxy. I will be traveling this summer and will be taking this as my "jacket" because it's very pretty, light, and the wool is so great for so many climates. This was a great buy, especially with the DealFlyer.

    I am a die-hard Ice breaker fan. This jacket is everything I know and love about Icebreaker. It fits great, looks wonderful, keeps me warm when its cold and cool when its warm, and washes easily. It is perfection.

    I hoped this could augment my merino wool cold weather cycle-commute gear. Living in FL, I don't need heavy weight stuff, just something I can wear under a windbreaker on the bike. I especially liked the fact that there is no thumb hole in the wrist cuff (which makes an otherwise cute hoodie super casual), but the sleeves of this hoodie are just way too short to provide any warmth to my wrists, and the cuffs too loose (no elastic) to prevent cold air blowing right up those short little sleeves if I were on my bike or even just strolling outdoors. Cold weather gear with loose cuffs just doesn't make sense to me. The fabric feels a bit stiff compared to merino wool hoodies by Ibex that I own and love. I ordered size S, and am 5'7", 35-27-34, thin build, 118#. It fits great in the shoulders, bust, and waist, close (not tight) around the low hip, but a little too snug across the upper buttocks (between true waist and hips). I think the fit is a bit odd, frankly. A curvier girl would probably like it even less. Think I'll stick with Ibex, whose hoodies are softer, more snuggly, fit better, and have nice, long sleeves, even if they have those ugly thumb holes. This will be going back.

    Love this top. I've been wearing it with the Icebreaker everyday base layer, great for 40-50 degree hiking, or for hanging out around the fire. Good length and love the form fitting hood.

    Got both the Ruby in large and the Red in XL. I thought the red would be too big but wanted to try it as I preferred the color (really wish companies would stop assuming women all prefer some shade of pink). Both fit okay on my 5'7" 160 lb body. And happy surprise, the Red was actually exactly the same bust width as the Ruby as well as being slightly shorter in the torso and sleeve. Both are snugger at the bust and looser in the midriff area.
