The picture doesn't do this sweater justice. It is in fact very slim fitting and flattering to the female figure, this picture makes it look awkward and bulky. I love mine in XS in the purple color. It is stylish and casual, great for shopping and walking in the park. I don't usually buy clothes at REI but I am so glad I went in, found lots of good quality tops at more than reasonable prices. REI beats the department stores hands down.
I adore this hoodie. It fits beautifully on a tall frame, and has a lean, attractive fit that is miles away from the usual frumpy and bulky look of most hoodies. The wool is lightweight but warm, and has held up very well with chilly morning hikes. It's also my go-to for evening walks with the dog. There's a bit of ruching at the bust which adds a bit of feminine style to an otherwise perfectly practical garment.
Enjoying the hoodie
Great for layering. Finally a hoodie long enough to wear in conservative cultures.
