The more I wear this hoody, the more I love it...super cozy and soft inside, but the wool blend exterior is beefy and should hold up well. It is generously cut and is a little boxy on me (I'm 5'3" 110#, got the small...an x-small would've been more fitted and flattering but sleeves would be too short for my albatross arms). It allows plenty of room for a few layers underneath but it's still slim enough to fit nicely underneath my OR shell. The purple is awesome, exactly as pictured. If you care more about looks than performance, get something more fitted, but if you want a comfortable, solid hoody this one fits the bill.
