I was looking for a comfy sweater for the cold Winter months that would look great and keep me toasty warm. On Outdoor Research’s website, they have a section dedicated to “Mountain Life” clothing which looked to fit the bill. Clothes that were functional outdoors, but had a distinguished style. I chose the Pelmo Sweater, which is a pull-over sweater made from a wool-blend (44% polyester, 39% wool, 17% nylon) and has a 1/4-Length Front Zipper.
It was just what I was looking for, the sort of sweater that keeps you warm at a lodge, when your feet are up after a day of snowshoeing through the backcountry.
The best part is the soft inner lining that you notice when fully zipped up (the zipper has a soft zipper guard at the top as well for when you’re outside). It has a zippered arm pocket, which is just large enough to stash an energy bar or your cell phone.
I would be perfectly content with using the sweater for relaxing, but it turns out it is multi-purpose. The materials that it is made from is both wicking and quick drying, which means not only is it a good insulating mid-layer, but is highly functional to wear all day when out on the trails or backwoods.
