Rated 5 out of 5 by ThomastheEngineer Best Sweat Shirt Ever
I like soft wool. I like the full zip. The hood fits snug, no need for a draw string, and can even be worn up under a bicycle helmet. The zip comes up to form a snug fit around the neck. No wool itch. Good for around the house, around the garden, around the yard. Keep it handy because it is light, not bulky, just right. Added bonus: machine wash and dry.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ZachB Very Comfortable, Almost the perfect weight Fabric
I have been wearing this over a month now and I really like it for the most part. I purchased a large and Iam about 5'7" and 165lbs and fits nicely with a little bit of slack in the arms and runs a bit below my belt line. The hood is a snug fit, so if your looking to keep the rain off your face then it might not work for that; however, it does keep your noggin nice and warm from the brisk wind.
This hoodie needs a couple of things to be the ultimate! I would like to see a slightly heavier weight wool fabric. Zippers on the main pockets. Sew in a bigger hood over the top of this snug fitted hood to protect from light rain and drizzle. Thats right a double hoodie for the win!
Best thing about it is its comfort in doors and out, overall very nice product, decent price for being 100% Merino as well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BunaBunny Perfect for California Weather
My husband loves the light weight and the wool adds extra warmth. It isn't as cold here in California so we don't need the heavy duty cold weather clothes. I highly recommend this sweatshirt.

Rated 5 out of 5 by UmassGrad Thicker version, please!
I love this hoodie. It's wonderfully soft and so far has proven to be effectively insulating in early to mid fall. And I love the loden color. It's so dark and rich.
Anyway, now that winter is approaching, I wish I could buy a thicker version of this hoodie. If it becomes a mid-weight jacket, that's fine with me. But I personally hope no synthetic lining is used. I want the hoodie to consist of as much natural material as possible like this Merino Wool Hooded Sweatshirt.
I'd gladly pay $200 for a thicker version.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Hilletron Already my favorite
I bought this hoodie about three weeks ago and wear it as soon as I get home from work each day. Great fit and feel. Very comfortable in the autumn air. Perfect for northern US climate - used it for layering while hunting, leaf raking, and hockey watching. No itch, warm when wet, breathes, and my younger kids like to cuddle in when I wear it. Runs a little large.

Rated 5 out of 5 by slik14u Wool Hoodie
With our weather as hot as it is I haven't actually worn this yet, but have tried it on. Full, comfortable fit and it is WARM even in an air conditioned house. As was stated this is not your normal hood; it really doesn't droop down over your eyelids and blind you! I think it will be great on the trail during fall and early winter with a rain and windbreaker over top!

Rated 5 out of 5 by xyzrider Mens Merino hooded sweatshirt
I ordered this in a mens' size as the womens were too tight to fit as many layers underneath as I wear in the fall and early spring. This is a quality jacket and I am sure I will get lots of good use out of it. I would recommend this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bodhisattva SOFT, CUDDLEY AND SMOOTH WOOL FABRIC
I purchased this item for my son who generally wears a medium. This jacket is generously cut and he found it too large for his taste. I thought it looked good (not oversized) but he prefers a narrow fit----so we returned it for a small. Still waiting to receive it. The quality of the fabric is excellent. I thought the hood was a trifle small for his head which is normal size. Overall good value, and we both love the color: loden. Make more men's and women's wear in loden---it's a fab shade for all year round.
