I have been a big fan of the bonded series as it combined beautifully the warmth and comfort of merino with a slightly more wind/weatherproof outer. This time, I downsized for a tighter/less relaxed fit. This limited edition is the love child of a soft teddy bear and a spiffy mountain hipster. The look is awesome with contrasted hood and body intérieurs (yes I am using some vaguely related French words because I am so worldly). Summary: as comfy as always and not out of place at lower elevation for work meetings. Bloody love it.
Compared to other OF garments I found the higher hoodie oversized and boxy. Sleeves were much shorter than i like; hang at the wrists. Pocket openings are smaller which would help keep stuff in but annoying for wanting to put my hands which is my preference. Material, quality and finish is superb but fitment and design is not for me.
Size L: Male, 5’8”, 165lbs, 40”
Perfect fit in XL. I’m 6ft 1”. Always a high standard of product from the Opus Team.
I got the hoodie about a week ago and haven't taken it off since. It is very comfortable and it fits great! I’m ordering more. The pull strings on the bonded olive are reflective, which is a nice touch. The hood is nice and deep which allows for comfortably wearing hats underneath.
Notes about the fit: it is not a baggy zip up hoodie, i wear mine with a tee-shirt under and there is not much room for more than one layer under it. I am 5’9” and about 165 lbs; the medium fits me perfect. The sleeves fall a little past my wrists and the hem falls to about my hip.
I absolutely love this hoodie, it’s very comfortable, perfect for the colder days, and true to size.
