REI Kettle Falls Sweater - Women'sis rated3.5out of5by4.
Rated4out of5bymaggie hikerfromComfortable sweaterThis is a dressier sweater than I would have purchased. It is attractive and comfortable. However, the way the zipper overlays a strip of fabric makes it need adjusting to look good. It's not one of my sweaters that I grab and put on quickly nor is it a hiking top. I do enjoy wearing it when I'm going to a meeting or meeting a friend for the evening.

Rated5out of5bylinder10frommy wife loves it!i got this for my pregnat wife in the size she would normaly get. the nice thing is that it is still able to streach some to fit over her babybump and she loves it. she keeps telling me how she wants two more just for the comfort and being able to wear it to work and for play.

Rated2out of5byBarbneuffromCute but stretches outI agree with the previous review...cute, but stretches out in the middle. I'd love to wear it more often, starts out cute at the beginning of the day, but by lunch I feel like I'm pregnant.

Rated3out of5bylong02232fromCozy! But Loses ShapeThis sweater is such a great color (I ordered the red) and is super cozy. I love that you can zip it up to have a higher collar if you're really chilly, but you can zip it down if you get warm. I usually wear a M in tops and that's what I ordered in this sweater...fits perfectly! The sleeves are even long enough to pull down over my hands a bit (which I loooove to do when I'm cold). Also, the top isn't super long like the current trend (where things cover your butt), but it sits nicely a bit past the hips so it doesn't feel too short.
My only complaint about this sweater is that it really stretches out. Not in the arms or back or anything, but just around the middle. It almost could be a maternity sweater now. :-/ I've washed it once and I noticed quite a bit of pilling, but not enough to bother me. However, I didn't dry it (instructions say to lay flat to dry) and it's sooo big around my stomach now. Great for hiding a belly, but not so great when you want it to be form-fitting and more flattering. Not sure what to do about that at this point. It's not weird enough to keep me from wearing it, but definitely something to think about if you're going to order this sweater.
I'm not sure if I would recommend this sweater to a friend. I'm torn....
