I have 4 of these sweaters in various sizes, one for each of my children. They were all purchased used. My children LOVE them. They are absolutely beautiful, and are worn almost every day in our northern michigan spring and fall, and on mild winter days in the car, as opposed to their bulky jacket. They are comfortable and warm, but don't restrict them or make them too hot as they exert themselves outside. The zippers were easy for my children to learn to zip on at a young age. I rarely lanolize them as they are quite comfortable, and have only had to fix a few tiny holes after years of constant hard wear as they are handed down between kids. I wish i could get a larger size boys sweater, as my son will be outgrowing his size 4 soon! He will be so sad, as he loves his sweater, as do my other children.
I Love it! But it was a gift for my grandnephew, and I have yet to hear back on how it was recieved.
