Very nice, comfortable wool sweater. If you like wool, this is a good mid layer--and also looks very nice too. It has thumbholes and the hood fits snugly, which is great since it can function as an insulating layer underneath your outer shell's hood if the rain or snow starts coming down.

This is a great layering piece. It can a get a little too warm depending on how hard you are pushing. I have used it x-c skiing, snowshoeing, and hiking or just kicking it at home or out on the town. It does a great job with the wind. The fit is pretty slim and athletic.

I work as a lift operator in Montana and it gets really, really cold - this thing works as a great layer even when standing still. If you're wearing it when you're moving around, look out. You'll heat up real quick. Resists precip and moisture, dries quick, hood fits great. Slim fitting - I'm 6'1" and 210, broad shouldered, and the large fits great. Technical performance and definitely stylish enough to wear out.

great fit and wool
very nice fit and a good medium-weight fabric. I would not consider it itchy, though it is not overly soft. I like the fabric weave. It was exactly what I was looking for in terms of a fashionable, warm, non-synthetic hoodie. I only wish the black version did not have the green lettering on the shoulder, I am not much in to wearing advertisements or obnoxious logos e.g. mountain hardware's over the top logos...

Great Shak Hoody
This is a great fit for me and I didn't notice any problems with arm length but then again everyone is different. The fit is nice and close without being too tight. The hood is also close like a previous review noted. I also don't feel as if it is too itchy against the skin...it is a little when you first put it on but I stop noticing it after about 30 seconds. Overall, a nice warm piece which is great for layering.
