THE STORY

Travel to, and amidst, majestic mountain environments has offered skiers a sense of freedom and wonder since Scandinavians first strapped wooden planks to their feet in Norway during the late 19th century. During the early advent of skiing as a mode of travel and then throughout is transition to 19th and 20th century winter sport, a proper ski sweater was considered standard equipment for mountain adventures due to its technically advanced woolen fibers which offered warmth, comfortable range of motion, and natural moisture wicking characteristics.

During the ‘50s, ‘60s, ‘70s, and ‘80s knitwear offered skiers a versatile expression of performance and style packaged in a traditional aesthetic born from the rich and storied heritage of alpine sport. Adopted by alpine guides within mountain locales from Aspen to Chamonix, such classic knitwear garments are respected for tried and true characteristics delivering winter-ready protection.

Cultivating a marriage of centuries old technologies such as dense lambswool and British waxed cotton, Alps & Meters is pleased to once again offer this proper mountain sweater as a protective homage to skiing’s oldest form of outerwear and its original pioneers, guides, and alpinists.

2nd one of these

I initially bought the light blue version of this jumper & I was really please with it.

Perfect fit, although long on the arms.

Very comfortable.

This one is made from different material and feels a little more coarse.

Maybe it'll soften after its 1st wash?

Other than that, just as good as the 1st one.

Perfect outdoor top

This is such a versatile piece. I like to wear mine on its own over my ski shell pants on those sunny spring days. it is durable enough to wear on those cold fall hunting days in the mountain, but sophisticated enough to wear for a night out with some wool slacks and service boots.

Looks and feels top quality

Unable to try this sweater on the slopes due to lock down, but the fit, style, feel and look is super. Looking forward to next year’s ski season!

Great design, a bit lacking on the quality

Had been wanting one for a while, bit the bullet and ordered... fit is a bit big, at 6'2", 86kg, 36" waist it could do with a more tapered tuck... suprised it didnt have a liner/inner for the money like my musto jumpers and the knit was a little thin on the back of the shoulders in terms of expected durability... also the 'leather' zip handles are pretty cheap/1mm thick...

Overall, love the design, love the brand but had I seen it in a shop its probably a no deal at RRP...
