"Best Sweater"

This really is a “better sweater.” It is lightweight, warm, well cut, and surprisingly durable. It is perfect for just about any situation: lounging around the house, jogging, errands around town, even layering under a shell for cold weather mountaineering. This thing is the most versatile and long lasting mid-layer that I own.

If $130 seems a bit much for a polyester sweater, consider the ¼ zip version. It is significantly cheaper and just as amazing (plus it has a handy chest pocket). However, as with all ¼ zip tops, it can be a little tricky to get on and off. Once it’s on though, no need to worry!

Pros: Super comfortable, warm, durable, versatile, and good looking.

Cons: Price (although it’s worth every penny), not very compressible for those who need every square inch of their pack, not very wind resistant (layering solves this issue).

Overall: A mid-layer you can wear on the mountain, at the bar, and around the house. Why not?
