Boiled Wool Goodness

Reviewed by KEV from Nebraska on Saturday, June 30, 2012
Me: 5'7"/155lbs/Broad Shoulders/32" waist/42" chest. Large fits me perfectly - chest, shoulders/back, sleeve, hem, neck (when fully zipped up). Nice slim euro fit; not boxy like American stuff. I could see the arms being too short for taller folks. Don't expect to be able to wear this against bare skin - it's itchy. I wore a light mesh polyester t-shirt (Salomon X-Tee) underneath in a steady light rain at 45-degreesF and was comfortable - not hot, not cold. Water beaded up and didn't soak the garment. I don't see the lack of pockets as a negative as this is really a layering piece that can double as outerwear in milder winter conditions. I usually don't care for the size and positioning of the pockets from the factory anyway. This way I can have them added later and to my liking.
