I got this down sweater as a gift for Christmas, and I have worn it everyday since. It's light enough that you won't overheat, yet warm enough to take off the chill. The hood is fantastic. I wear it skiing, running (I'm a Wasatch Speed Goat Mountain Racing Team member), sitting on the couch, heck, I've even worn it to sleep in. This is a great, durable piece from Patagonia, and once you get it, you will wish you had bought two (so that you can wear one while the other is in the wash).
