REI Lake Placid Sweater



I loved this sweater so much that it became my uniform…

Rating: rated 4 of 5 stars
Fabric: 90% polyester 10% wool (dri-release)
Price Paid: $36

I loved this sweater so much that it became my uniform BEFORE they changed the design. It is still soft and warm. The $36 sale price was right, too. What I don't like is that they've added pockets to it, which are a tad bulky. The zipper is now a more conspicuous color and metal - unattractive, I think. Finally, gone are the subtle grey ribbon zipper pull and brand tag at the bottom. They have been replaced with an odd bloody poo color ribbon instead.

This jacket/sweater has been durable in the past and is great for travel and another layer close to the body, but the design change means I will not be buying this jacket again.
