The knit texture and grade is just awesome, I have never seen knit of this quality before. The tightness of weave and placement in the garment allows it to be water and wind resistant, holding more heat then any other knit frabic. A best in sweater/shirt looks and warmth. Easy to care for, soft on skin warm on the body. If you have ever been around textiles you will understand why this is such a incredible piece of work, well with in the frame work of art meets funtion. The photo you are seeing here is by no way accurate, the only photo that would show the detain would have to be taken at one cementer of the garment.
I actually got the first of these sweaters directly from Land Rover North America_it was in the LR Gear catalougue.It says volumes about the build quality.If LRNA puts any sort of outdoor gear in their cat.
Warm,quick to dry,comfortable,and just the right length.I am 6'4" 250 lbs and the XXL fit me well.
Have now worn this new sweater on a week long excursion through Northern Maine into New Brunswick-it has performed as well as my earlier one and seems to be the perfect midlayer under a Gore-Tex shell with daytime temps in the high teens and night temps hovering around 0.My feeling is that at temps around 0-you'll need an additional layer unless you are active all day.
What a great midweight sweater. Wear by itself or under a softshell, it's not too bulky or thin. The quality of the merino knit is great, and the fit even better. I would call it a little more "modern fit" than "relaxed", but it is not snug. I'm 6'2", 195 lbs. and the large fits great. I usually have trouble with sleeve length (35" in a dress shirt), but the sleeves on the sweater are perfect. Just ordered my second.
