Order arrived quickly and well packaged as usual. The item is very well made and although I ordered an XL this time, I may order a size smaller in the future to wear over a base layer or t shirt. The XL is roomy enough to be worn over a couple of layers for myself. The extended arm sleeves with the thumb holes are fantastic, unlike other garments I have these on which are all thin in this area these ones are made of heavier doubled over material and are a godsend. I also have the 200 turtle neck & bottoms and the colour on the 400 is a lot better in being more drab and duller than my 200g versions. In all this is a quality piece of kit, very well made, very warm, length is long to cover & protect your lower back area from chills and a great high collar for keeping the drafts out. My only criticism is why having gone to a drabber colour which helps you blend in better with your surroundings would you want to put a bright white large lettered logo on the collar. Now I’m not against branding, I love my Fjallraven & Swanndri logos, but they are small and dull in comparison but when the whole idea of being out in nature is to blend in why would they do this. The reason I mention it is because I just saw Ben Fogle wearing this item on his show but they must of changed the colour scheme, his one was the same colour of my 200g version, but the logo on the back of the collar is in black, they should of stuck with black. The colour would not put me off purchasing another, but its seems they have gone slightly backwards after making such a good choice to make the garment duller and not so bright, and then sticking a hideous large white logo on the back of it.
