Better Than A Hoodie: LL Bean does it again

I have many standard sweatshirt hoodies and none of them were keeping me warm or meet my needs. So I finally found one that does!

Whether early morning gym trips, taking that brisk morning walk, hiking in the cool air of the mountains or shooting sporting clays on a breezy day, this multi purpose sweatshirt is a real find. One of my favorite features is the elastic band on the hoodie to hold it close to my head, covering my ears and still allowing me to wear a ball cap. Also, there are pockets within pockets with a little Velcro closure to secure keys, credit cards, etc. that provided extra convenience. And there is more:

• extra body length maximizing body warmth

• sleeves long enough to cover my hands when needed

• easy care, washable merino wool with soft fleece on the inside

Now about the fine merino wool – typically I can’t stand any kind of wool against my skin and have been known to break out in a very interesting rash.  Not with this knitted wool. Plus it is as comfortable and ‘non itchy’ as a soft cotton. And did I mention it doesn’t retain odor?

I ordered the black and now will order that same hooded sweatshirt in the olive green.  It is perfect for cool air travel or for being out in the field. Excellent value and a real find. Click here to see what I’m talking about. Get it for yourself, or better yet, buy it for a gift!
