PERFECT FOR MY BODY TYPE Review by lilrhodes
Overall
Quickly became my favorite multi-use sweater. Love the chest pocket, a very important feature - and perfect to put my wallet while shopping in high crime areas under my jacket as layering. Love it to hang-out in the house, walk outside in cool weather, wear fly fishing as outer wear on cool sunny days, or use as a heavy layering over a light layering on my skin. Easy to wash and dry; and dries easily. . . a real plus! Material is very comfortable on my skin, which is sensitive to wool, especially on my neck. I'm trying to buy more, but they are out of stock. In all aspects, this is a perfect fit for me. I am a relatively slim/smaller body size & "light bones" if there is such a thing at 5'-9'', 160 lbs wearing size medium, normally. The sewing is strong, SIMMS logo is straight; my sleeves on this sweater don't flare-out, but taper down. So, the cuts of some sweaters must not be consistent as with mine. Fit is very comfortable, absolutely perfect, and I don't think that the design is meant to be a compression fit like "PHREAKER" describes. I hope the new version fits me the same, and I think that SIMMS got it just right for my body type.

Utility top Review by Phreaker
Overall
Fit is great for me. I use it for an extra layer if its cold out while fishing or it even looks good enough to wear to the bar after. There is no spandex in the fabric so I would not expect it to stretch at all. If you want a compression type fit go for the guide sweater.

Great stuff Review by dryfly purist
Overall
This Sweater has become my favorite Sweater. It keeps me warm, has great fit and lots of comfort. I highly recommend it for both fly fishing and to wear just to keep warm in cold conditions. Simply a great Sweater, and i´m gonna get another one for sure :-)

Poor Fit/Baggy Sleeves +1 Review by ddombos2
Overall
I absolutely agree with JT Flyfisher on this item. The body is small in the chest and shoulders. The sleeves are awkward and large by comparison. Unlike the Guide Fleece Top which I also own, this material doesn't stretch. Lack of stretchand the tight fit through the shoulders restricts movement. On my sweater, the seams are sloppy and the logo is askew. I own several other Simms products. This one doesn't live up to their typical high quality.

Good Purchase Review by BackCountry
Overall
This is a two part review. Overall the Rivershed Sweater Half Zip is a quality product. From a casual perspective- it looks and feels great! Great layering or casual top on a cold day. From a technical perspective- the sleeves are loose so the cuffs fold under to the inside of the sweater which can be bothersome. The sweater is very warm and comfortable and there is zero doubt it won’t keep you warm on those cold river days. Slightly overpriced.

Poor Fit/Baggy Sleeves Review by JT FLyfisher
Overall
Very disappointed in the fit on the style. The sleeves are very baggy and flare-out towards to wrists. I own other Simms Fleece Sweaters and they are great. Do not purchase this style.
