  • The Guide Sweater is a modern classic, directly inspired by classic alpinist and mountaineering styles, but updated and upgraded with extra fine 18.5 micron, machine washable, merino yarns. The half zip allows for easy core venting and is a substantial 2+lbs in yarn weight. Merino wool is nature's original technical material, no-melt, no-drip and insulates when wet. We partnered with a family owned, fine Italian woolen mill that has been making sweaters for generations. With the grand Dolomites as their backyard, they know a thing or two about mountaineering sweaters. From Matterhorn to the outpost on Illus, the Guide Sweater is a highest quality, premium, old school, technical mid-layer with timeless styling for those who value ruggedness and fine classic design.

Awesome sweater but….

Sweater is great however I have had an issue with the stitching between the main fabric of the body and the neck. This portion of the stitching has become has torn and is currently at a tailor getting repaired. Note the sweater material is still intact. It is the stitching holding the two sections together that has become compromised.

Thank you for the review Michael. Please reach out to our CS Team in the future to allow us to help you any product issues. We will certainly fix any problems if we can, or issue a refund/credit.

Cool sweater

I like this sweater a lot - it has an athletic fit with similar elbow and shoulder protection like a commando sweater, but the long-neck half-zip means you can open up for ventilation, partially zip, or full zip to either create a turtleneck (folded), or have nose/ear protection (not folded). This one will get a lot of use - looking forward to other colors following.

Thank you for the review Nadir.
