Stylish AND functional -
By: Ralfino from Sheffield , UK
I have many fleece sweaters that are great at keeping you warm but lack a certain style when not in the river or on the hill. This Simoom sweatshirt combines the features of warmth ( though not TOO warm) and practicality but with a relaxed style combining the subtly knitted fabric plus the leather highlights at the neck and on the elbow patches. I'm very satisfied with this sweatshirt and I would recommend both for walking, visits to the local pub, and just relaxing at home, preferably after a successful day's fishing
Warm but not "Cool" -

I enjoy wearing my Simoon Zip-Neck Shirt every Winter, in fact it was one of the first Orvis items I ever bought. However whilst it certainly performs well, the material pills like mad and the cut is far from flattering. Ideal for messing about at home or when hiking, but certainly not a dressy item, even with the leather trim. But hey, it is not expensive, and certailnly worth the money.

this one is my second and just as good as first one; found the fleece inside left fluffy bits on my spandex walking trousers. Bought two this time - this and the newer version, and this seems very slightly thicker; good to relax in

As above, but I did buy it at sale price. First it's comfortable wear and light enough for what's called the summer here in Scotland. Although it looks good a lack of pockets stops the 5 star grade.
really nice -

Over the last few years I have been reluctant to order Orvis sweaters as at 6ft 4in they are always too short in the body. However took a gamble on this one as it was in the sale and was pleasantly surprised, nice material great fit and nice and warm. Really pleased. Hope that the new longer sizing finds its way to the sweatshirts.

I oordered the brown prior and I really like it over a T-shirt with jeans in the Fall. This is less red than I had expected and is darker in appearance. This is a great pullover for Fall and is relatively lighter than a hoodie or sweater. Typical orvis quality is strong and fit is true and does not run oversized.
Soft and baggy -

I am happy to wear this jumper around the house and down to the beach but it is not exactly flattering. The material is very soft and tends to just 'hang' and look baggy. Nonetheless, it is comfortable.

I like the style of this fleece with the elbow patches and it feels good when wearing it .People have asked which retailer I got it from I would recomned to a friend.
Simoom Pullover -
This was the 2nd one ordered, but in a different colour. If we had not had the first one, we would have been quite happy with this, but when we looked at the weight of the 2 jumpers, there was no comparison. The first one was better. Hopefully this one will wear and wash as well though.
