Great for skiing.
This hoody is very versatile, and I wear it around all the time, around the house, skiing, and out into society, and it works great for all of the above. It has held up well for the amount that I wear and wash it, a little piling and snags on the seams, but the wool is still thick and warm and soft. It works great for layering, I have worn it with a warm jacket on over it in the winter, and after a few minutes of splitting firewood, it is warm enough to wear alone in the mid-teen conditions. It s great for skiing, and not too itchy to be a bottom layer.
Favorite Year Round Hoody
This is a very lightweight, warm, cozy, comfortable hoody that you can throw on quickly and look smart and stylish. It runs true to size and is not tight fitting but has a flattering fit. The thumbholes keep your hands warm and are a cute accent to the whole look. We have this in the black, grey/wht, and purple colors and enjoy wearing them almost daily. These are perfect to throw on during early morning walks or wear throughout the day while the air is cool. It's also perfect for summer nights, a lightweight stylish hoody to throw on when the air gets cooler. One point to mention, is that it does pill a little after handwashing so if you are very picky about the smooth look, then you should dry clean it.
Great fit & versatility
Bought this as workout gear, and was pleasantly surprised to find that it works equally well in casual-to-dressy settings (playground, informal evening get-togethers) as a warm and comfortable layer. Normally I wear a t-shirt and light fleece under my down coat when I go out in cold weather (low 30's today, overcast), but today was happy that just the hoody (thinner than my fleece) with my coat kept me cozy. Very flattering cut, nice length (though, I haven't put it through the wash so I don't know if that will change). Hits at hip right now. Small fits me perfectly (5'2, usually wear 4-6 petite).
