Andrea B.wrote a review of Icebreaker Nexus 1/2-Zip Pullover Sweater - Women's on February 23, 2014
Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: Runs large
I bought this to replace a heavyweight Icebreaker half-zip that I lost in Mexico. When this arrived I was a little disappointed because it wasn't as heavy as I'd hoped but I loved the style (the color on the collar is a nice touch) and the marksmanship is still great. The feel of the wool is much softer than older Icebreaker clothes, but apparently when they made the wool softer they also changed the fit. The body is much wider and the sleeves much shorter. I'm 5'11" and weigh 144 lbs. I'm always a large in Smartwool or Icebreaker tops but this top is too wide and too short in the body and the sleeves are at least two inches too short. When I called Backcountry about the return, they said Icebreaker had changed their style and the way the clothes fit. I'm very bummed. This is definitely going back and I'll have to buy Smartwool from here on out.
