Reviewed by Betacats from NC on Saturday, March 22, 2014I love this sweater yet am returning because of the sleeve length and bulk. The thumb holes and coverage are great for outdoors, but if you want to wear it indoors those sleeves get in the way. I was hoping for something I wouldn't have to take off when I came indoors because it looks good enough to wear anywhere. Great fabric and fit, but I'm active both indoors and out and the sleeves would get in the way. If you've got really long arms or don't mind the extra bulk by the wrist it's fine.
Reviewed by Liana from CA on Tuesday, February 4, 2014I am returning this sweater because neither color or fit as expected. Bone color looks like dirty white for me . Tight fit plus semi transparent makes it unattractive . Quality is good.
Reviewed by Lil'Pao from the Mountains on Friday, November 8, 2013This is one of my all-time Icebreaker favorite half zips. Though they are all quite similar, it is the little differences that make this one so "good". The arms are really nice and long, making the thumb loops very comfortable. The body itself also seems a a tad longer than the other tops which is nice for long torso people like myself. The other nice feature is the "kangaroo" pocket, it is nice to stick your hands next to your warm tummy for a little warming when needed. And of course it is a 320 which makes a difference in warmth versus the 260's! Buy one.... or two, you'll be glad.
Reviewed by skigypsy from mount morris pa on Tuesday, August 27, 2013I thought this was two shades of green. When it came I realized it was green and navy---therefore it did not go with the rest of my ski wear I was trying to match it to.It was a little scratchier than smart wool or Ibex---but I think it would have been okay if it was the right color.length and fight were fine. I loved the green shade as well. It is hard to find cute wool in anything other than black , blue , and purple.
Reviewed by Didee99 from Keystone, CO on Wednesday, May 29, 2013I have only worn this sweater a few times. I washed it after the first couple of times to help prevent any issue of pilling. The post-wash condition seems OK except that the pouch is now gaping a little and doesn't sit flat as it did before washing. I have the black with blue stripes - bought this color so that the extra material for the pouch would be be less noticeable which I think it is. This top is form fitting which I like - long enough in the body and arms for someone like me who is tall. Overall, I hope this becomes one of my favorites!
