Outdoor ResearchBlackridge Guide Sweater - Men's

There's no difference between casual and ski apparel.

You don't really have separate clothes for skiing and hanging; instead, you'll just leave your cabin home in whatever outfit you're wearing, plus a ski shell. That's why you wear clothes like the Outdoor Research Men's Blackridge Guide Sweater, a warm top that works whether you're spending a day on the lifts or enjoying a taco Tuesday. Its drirelease merino fabric blends quick-drying, moisture-wicking polyester with super soft merino wool to enhance performance-driven comfort on the slopes.

Good sweater for the shoulder season

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

A great looking sweater from OR. This can act as a mid layer, or an outer layer depending on the temp outside. I would recommend sizing up if you are a "thicker" person, as this does run a little bit narrow. Merino material allows for moisture wicking and breathability.

Great Insulating Layer

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: XL

This sweater is great to use alone for weather 40F or higher but really shines as an insulating layer for cold weather. So far I've used it on kayaking and backpacking trips with weather between 20F and 30F, and was plenty warm wearing this sweater with an underlayer and a shell. It also kept me plenty warm when it got wet and it dried quickly. It's an outstanding product and I would absolutely recommend it for fall and winter weather.

Thank you Nicholas!

A Great Light Sweater for Mild Weather

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

I'll start the review with my sizing, I am a slimmer build, about 5'9" and the Medium fits me very well, think of a fit in between a tight Slim and comfortable Regular fit. I also usually run pretty warm myself and I like having this sweater around because I can wear it and not feel overheated. This sweater is comfortable, and the fabric feels great and high quality. I have the blue color and I personally love the way it looks having a slimmer build myself. I can use this sweater in many situations, outdoors or in the office. This sweater is light enough for me to use an under layer and also works great around the office without me feeling overheated. So my recommendation being if you need to have a light sweater that you could wear in mildly cold weather (~55F-45F) or use this as an under layer in colder weather (32F below) this is a great choice of sweater and i have definitely loved this purchase.
