I was looking for an attractive midlayer that would fit into my layering system and also look great as a standalone piece. I found both in this piece from Arcteryx. Although the price is a little steep, after wearing this for several backpacking and rock climbing outings, I feel that it's more than paid for itself. I wore it under the Arcteryx Strato jacket in 18 degree weather and didn't feel the bite from the cold. And its breathes wonderfully. Like other posts say, the gold medal color is not as bright as the picture shows, but it still looks great nonetheless.
I love this sweater, but I will say that it tends to bunch up around my forearms, but I can shake it out rather easily. All in all its a great buy and I love it.
