The Swiss Army has to protect their officers from extreme weather. One way they offer protection is through the use of sweaters, jackets, and scarves made from wool. This Swiss Army wool sweater might be one of the nicest military surplus sweaters we've ever had. Made from heavy weight wool with a half length zipper, you will stay extra warm and look great wearing it. Sorted by size, pick yours for the best fit.
Well, they might, but a wool variety of this quality will probably run you $200.
This sweater is much thicker and heavier than any other sweater I own, which also makes it the warmest. Last year I purchased a wool sweater from LLBean, and it's nice, but this one is better quality. The size was right on for me.
The description says this sweater is a "Swiss blue," but it's really a greenish grey.
Very nice winter sweater
Review byW Crow
Most of my sweaters come from thrift stores so this one was expensive compared to those. Compared to a new sweater of comparable quality, it is quite inexpensive. Very tightly woven without feeling stiff. Well worth the price.
Warm, very warm.
I purchased one of these from Keepshooting awhile ago. The sweater is of excellent quality, very well made. It is warm, almost too warm to wear inside; it is like wearing a lightweight coat. I usually one wear it when it is very cold and I know I am going to spend a lot of time outdoors. A comparable sweater in a name brand I can see costing quite a few times more than what Keepshooting is selling them at.
Fantastic Swiss Army Wool Sweater
These sweaters are super warm and as far as I can tell brand new. The XL (56) fit perfect as I am 6'2" and I like a sweater that goes past the waist so it doesn't pull up and expose you to the cold. With a gore-Tex parka and this sweater you will stay warm in the most severe wet cold weather. Got to love wool! You can't go wrong with this sweater, I grabbed two and at a very good price too!
