Swing and a Miss
By Amanda December 24, 2009
Usually I'm a huge Arc'Teryx fan. However, this sweater did not do it for me...and here's why:
Too tight/short for starters. I'm 5'6 125 and usually a med fits fine. This made me feel wrapped like a mummy (with a tight base-layer on), especially along the back/shoulders area. It's short in the arms, and the torso is also a bit short, causing you to constantly pull the sweater down to meet the top of your jeans/pants. Another ding: it looks like wool, but it certainly doesn't insulate like it! If you are inside, this sweater is great, but the second you step outside, the wind cuts thru it and leaves you wondering what you paid all of that money for. I kept the sweater b/c it looks sharp, and is great for indoors...but I won't be packing it with me when I'm outside, even to a bonfire.
