Love the quality of tailoring, sleeve inconsistent
Verified Buyer Reviewed by Cynthia the outdoor enthusiast from New York City on Wednesday, April 13, 2016
I'm 5'9.5", 128 lbs., purchased size: S. I am an avid all season hiker, snowshoer, cross country skier. I bought two zip turtlenecks: one Imperial purple heather, one Persian red heather. PROS: a nice tailored fit, tight quality, malleable old school weave merino wool, which I love! It fits well next the the skin, unlike this 2106 season of softer, in my opinion, poorer quality weave and less tailored construction in the Smart wool design. These zips are comfortable soft, not "wrinklley"soft. With the quality of weave and tailoring of the Imperial purple heather, it can be worn as a nice casual piece with pair of high-end jeans socially. CONS: The sleeve lengths between the two weren't consistent--disappointing: the Imperial purple heather was just the perfect length of my long limbs coming below my wrist, while the Persian red heather fell just above my wrist which felt to short, so I'll be gifting that one to a friend.
