Rated 5 out of 5áby Copperlover Classy and Quality
Sweater is quality, good looking, and warm for a variety of activities. A step above fleece for looks! Very classic! Wear over a T alone or fits under a jacket. During a good sale offering, bought this sweater for all the male duck hunters in our family. Next year, LL BEAN should offer this for women too!

Rated 5 out of 5áby torchyC Take off your jacket!
I have now purchased 5 of these sweaters as gifts for the men in my family. The first one was a year ago and with such rave reviews that I bought 4 more for Christmas this year. Everyone LOVED them. In the Ohio weather above 30o, this sweater can replace a man's jacket giving them less bulk. The guys can't thank me enough. The colors are nice too. And they fit true to size. Even the talls. Worth the price. That windstopper lining really works.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Enjoytheoutdoors40 extremely warm
I bought this sweater 2 years ago. It is an extremely warm, comfortable and windproof sweater. However in 2 years time, the sweater starting to come apart at the left elbow. I really love this sweater. I brought it in to the L.L. Bean outlet store where they gave me a full exchange for a new one. I hope this one doesn't wear out on the elbow like the old one. Thank you L.L. Bean for you great customer service and exchange policy. I am always satisfied with my purchases at the store. Great quality and service all the time. Time to get some ice fishing in.

Fall blew its way into town yesterday with a vengeance. I'm out shopping today with this sweater that I picked up on reduction at the beginning of the summer.
Good buy; I walk through the fall bluster like it was nothing. I wholeheartedly recommend this sweater to anyone who likes to go out rambling in the wind.

I bought this to give to my boyfriend for Christmas. He loved it. I actually gave it to him early because we weren't able to spend Christmas together. We had some last minute shopping to do and so he put it on over a long sleeve t shirt and he didn't even need his winter coat.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Windigo903 Top Notch, Hard Wearing Outdoor Sweater
I live in this sweater a large part of the winter, and just ordered my second one because the neck had frayed...my wife wears the old one now in evenings just to kick around the house. The lining makes it largely impervious to the wind, and I wear it with a down vest as we take a 3-mile walk most evenings in an upstate NY winter. It's too bulky to wear under a coat and can be a bit cumbersome to remove when going into a warm room but the wool is extremely durable and hard wearing. It can be washed--and should be--maybe once a year. Plus, it looks great.

Great quality, winds topper lining is perfect and is just like the Barbour equivalent at a third of the price. Nice detailing, perfect fit.

Rated 4 out of 5áby GooseHunter Additional Sweater
I have 4 windstopper sweaters from a competitor that I have had many years. I wear them everyday as i have fybermialgia and they do not rub on my skin. The competitors sweaters have a tendency to get "short" over time also they the quality has deteriorated. Consequently I decided to try LL Beans.
Yes they are noisy when handling them, not sure why as my others are not. Once on the noise goes away as the windstopper is not rubbing against it's self.
The first thing i noticed was that the sweater's physical weight is much heavier than the other sweaters. The second thing I notices was it's great looks. I got the light tan sweater, it has dark brown accent around the collar and is extremly well looking.
The sweater is "chain woven" which concerns me as inbetween the chains the sweater is thin. So time will tell how warm it is. The competitors are such I can wear them full time in the house and still go out side without a coat in New York winters. I wear them instead of a jacket when waterfowl hunting when it is well below freezing temp. So far inside this sweater seems to be warmer than the others, which stands to reason as it is much heavier.
First thing I missed is no breast pocket. The next thing i noticed was that the zipper is shorter so I can not reach my shirt pocket through it. I find I have to lift the sweater to put something in my pocket.
Overall, I think the sweater is a very good product and great looking. No breast pocket, short zipper is keeping it from being a 5 and excellent product.
