Not bad over all, but does not block wind. Not even a little bit. The back pocket is overly large and somewhat useless. Anything you put in there will be able to toss around and rotate any direction. For the price, not what I would expect from 5.11 It's just borderline OK and compared to other brands I'd say this one falls behind what I'd expect for the money.
I have one of these in all three colors. I love this sweater. Perfect for Fall-type weather where it's not too cold. Although I'm not sure why the description states "dual handwarmer pockets", there's none; mine only have the front and lower rear pockets. The subdued colors look really cool, and I wear them casually all the time. Highly recommend.
Bought this for the hubs and he originally loved it. Its comfy to wear, looks good, but after wearing a couple times, it pills a lot. Won't buy this item again. Also, my husband happens to be a lefty so this doesn't work. Lol.
