Details

Although it might feel as old as Ireland itself, Aran knitting was actually developed at the turn of the 20th century by enterprising island women who traded stitches among themselves and earned extra income by selling their heavy, lanolin-rich jumpers to travelers. According to local lore, each Aran stitch symbolizes a different part of life on these rugged, remote islands. This classic men's sweater features the diamond trellis stitch, representing the fishing nets used by Aran fishermen, with alternating bands of the plait or braided cable stitch, thought to celebrate the closeness of family life. A zipper at the neck makes it easy to layer over a lighter-weight base.

"Galaway Pride Sweater"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Nice sweater however too large. Bigger problem was the $5.95 to ship to me but over $20 to return. Probably will not order from here again.

"Very big and loose knit"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The sweater is knit nicely and is wool BUT very thin loose wool. A medium was HUGE and the loose knitting means it catches on absolutely everything and ends up with big pulls. Given it was so big and pulling constantly and relatively unusable as is I washed it hoping it would tighten up a bit and shrink a little. Washed on warm thinking might have to do it again as it was so big ....and now it will fit a doll. Live and learn probably should have just returned it.

"Perfect for Women of Aventure!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Even though this was a mens jacket, I requested it as a holiday gift. Got a large to start out with, and it was too big. With every companys sizing being different, its hard some times to pick whats gonna fit correctly. No matter, Novice as always, handled it with great customer service and I got a medium. LOVE! Its awesome for traveling or anytime you need pockets.And the sleeves come off in case you just want a pocketed vest. So great!

"Fun and practical mens hiking vest"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

My husband loves to have everything he needs close at hand. This vest fits the bill when were hiking in the mountains, or just in a nearby park for the day. Lots of functional pockets to carry everything from his GPS and bug spray, sunscreen, water and snacks. And a flashlight. Because, you never know WHAT you will need when youre out for the day.
