    This sweater is very nicely made. Nothing is compromised. I like that it is a tight weave but not too heavy, yet still warm. The sizing is clearly for more slender folks than I, but it's truly a top quality garment.

    Cardigan is very well made and would be what i consider to be a tight proportioned fit. I ordered an extra large and the fit is snug....but not too snug. I would love to see this cardigan in solid colors.

    Wrong kind of zipper for a sweater - 1/1/2013

    I like the design and feel of this sweater. In fact, my wife wanted one, too, even though it is in the men's section of the Orvis website. I like that it's washable, too, rather than having to take it to a dry cleaners. The only thing I REALLY don't like is that the teeth in the zipper are far too small for the length zipper that's used. The zipper snagged up on itself the second time I wore it and ruined a couple of the tiny teeth. It's now at a tailoring/alterations shop where I'll have to spend $80 taking out the ruined zipper and getting a decent-sized zipper installed. They agreed that the zipper is entirely the wrong kind to be used in a full-length application like that. So yes, I would recommend the sweater - but with the caveat that whoever buys it will be smart to get a whole new zipper replacement for it first.

    Beautiful Sweater - 12/26/2012
    By: from Milwaukee, WI

    This is a nice looking sweater. The fit is great and the colors are beautiful. It only has one minor detail that takes away from a near perfect product and that is the zipper. It is made of plastic and just does not compliment or match the sweaters overall quality otherwise. It's weight is just right for those of us that need something a little heavier. Great looking and functional sweater that needs a zipper improvement.

    nice sweater - 12/22/2012

    sweater seemed high quality, but lighter weight than I expected. sweater design looked great in catalog photo, but not as good when on me...not the sweater’s fault, just not a good match for what I wanted. for $325, it needs to be a perfect match.

    Perfect size and design - 1/3/2012
    By: from Andover MN

    Bought this as a Christmas present for my husband this year 2011. Sizing perfect, he's big and doesn't like the half zip styles. The sweater is super well crafted, beautiful fabric and not to busy of a Nordic pattern. Also happy it didn't have those big metal clasp closures for the sweater. It is a perfect updated style and is warm. My husband absolutely loves it and is enjoying wearing it here in Minnesota.

    I'm not a big sweater guy but Dale of Norway is the way to go for a ski/outdoor sweater. I bought the XL and returned it for a XXL and it's perfect. I'm 6' 225 and wear 36 waist so normally an XL does it. Just beautiful details and quality.
