So, I ordered one of these, it's a journey. Saw an ad from mass drop about a black 100%merino wool hoodie for $159.00 I was mere moments away from pulling the trigger, I love merino wool! Wasnt an option for a tall size though, and lets face it, I'm long... I was talking to my bride about it, it's a garment I can use for my job, layering is a key to being a freight RR conductor. She didnt say no... so... she did suggest looking at other vendors, so I did! Yeah, this guy is trainable, take note! Did a bit of the old search n click, found LL Bean had a similar product, available in XLT, and in olive drab/green! What? And, and, and, 25% off! So I ordered a hoodie, and a pack (I have issues, yes I know, not getting help, moving on). Today it arrived! HOLY FECAL MATTER!!! this garment is amazing! It is soooooo soft! Soooooo comfy! It is light, breathable, the hood is perfect for occupational use, and did I mention how just down right comfortable it is? So, occupational use, if you understand this, well then trust that it's a perfect garment for use by the working class. If you dont understand this let me explain, in the environment I work in you, per the rule book, you must expect movement on any track at any time in any direction. This rule is written in blood, as recently as 3 years ago when a coworker was killed by a cut of cars that struck him from behind. So, you cant, per the rules, have a hood that extends past the face. This hoodie has that. No cinch cords, it's just the way it sits. Long term, I cant speak to this garments toughness, cant speak to its longevity, but initial comfort, fit, and value short term it is on point!
