I bought this to be a mid-layer for my winter backpacking setup. I expected it to be a bit thicker than it is, but that's okay. It has an athletic fit and the material is suuuuuper comfy. I haven't taken it off since it got here (not kidding). The only cons I can think of are that it has no pockets and the torso length is just a little bit shorter than I would have liked. However, I think I'll order something else for my midlayer and keep this piece as an around-town sweater. It's so comfortable, and stylish enough to wear regularly.
