I purchased this 100% Shetland wool sweater vest to replace my old long sleeve 100% acrylic sweater for cold weather walking. The wool sweater has been ideal for the cold weather. I use it with a black UA long sleeve heatgear shirt and have walked for an hour and a half in temperatures in the high 30's. When the sun is bright and there is little wind, I do not need anything else on my upper body. If the sun is not out but there is no wind, sometimes I need something else on my arms. The only time I need a windbreaker of some sort is when there is a a failry strong and sustained wind [say 10+ mph]. Being 100% wool, this sweater is perfect for keeping my core warm in rather harsh circumstances even if it gets a little damp. I highly recommend it.

The item I ordered was challenging and only through a web search did I find the exact product including size. Once ordered the notification of processing and shipping and the delivery to Canada was within 10 days.

This garment is cut strangely. Its really long and a little too narrow. Also the v-neck is strangly deep and more like a ladies scoop-neck garment. Did not like that at all. Also, the wool leaves lint and fibers all over anything it touches, which makes me wonder if its put together very well. I have lots of wool garments that don't do that.
