I find this extremely comfortable. My new fave sweater. Not the lightest weight thing out there, and gets too warm under extreme exertion, but if you're just wearing it around town, there's nothing better! I like it for the chilly, wet winters on the west coast (Vancouver).Some notes:Has a small hood like most icebreaker gear. Not a massive hood that you can hide behind; more skull-hugging, but can be worn under bike helmets. Fit is larger than most Icebreaker, but Icebreaker tends to fit smaller. Will 'pill' a little over time, so I try to wash it as rarely as possible. Maintains shape pretty well, even with machine washing (as long as you air dry, and use cold water only).
