Comments about REI Merino Full-Zip Sweater - Men's:
Calling this a sweater is a bit of a misnomer. It's a lightweight soft wool top, more like an undershirt. The texture is almost cotton like. I bought it as a cool weather exercise top so I could stay comfortable running through the wet, chilly NC winters. Wore it for the first time today, running in damp, overcast 44 degree windy conditions. I stayed comfortable through a 6 mile run, including a fairly exposed long hilltop stretch. Didn't use a shell or undershirt, just the merino top and nylon shorts. I'm 5'7" 149 lb 39 inch chest and the small fits comfortably close to the skin without chafing. The sleeves are a little long, but for running in cold weather that's not a bad thing. I'm thinking about going back and buying another one so I can have a spare for when this one is in the wash. I'll also probably use it as a base layer in colder weather. A little pricey for a long sleeve tee, but if it holds up and keeps me this comfortable it may be worth it.
