Here's what other sites are saying:
Originally, the Alpiniste sweater was a reinvention of the hearty, boiled-wool sweaters favored for a century by Chamonix guides: The wool provided warmth even when wet and the dense knit kept out much of the wind. For the original Alpiniste, we gave the soft, heavy-gauge merino wool a twist before knitting, and brushed the inside to provide extra loft and warmth. That design was so successful we've found it hard to improve on, so we've kept the reincarnation faithful to the original, with a faux-leather tab to finish the quarter-zip opening, a cozy stand-up collar and a zippered chest pocket.
