The chill of autumn and winter means it’s time to pull out all those cozy garments that keep us warm and comfortable whether we’re curled up at the lodge fireplace or out in the elements having fun. And if you’re anything like me, top priority goes to those pieces that are so soft, you feel like wearing them for days on end.
My most current piece of clothing that fits that description is the Sherpa Rolpa Fleece Pullover.
Made from 100-weight, two-sided brushed anti-pill fleece that’s 100-percent polyester, the pullover feels like a combination of soft velvet and the sleekest puppy ears. (No puppies were harmed in its making, though!) It’s a lightweight pullover that’s ideal for curling up by the fireplace, preferably with puppies, or as a baselayer under your winter shell when you head outside on an adventure.
The seams are placed away from pack-strap-chafing locations, like shoulder tops and hips. Integrated thumb holes, two handwarmer pockets, and the drawcord-adjustable cowl neck collar are all elements that add to the coziness of this top.
The pullover comes in four colors (noted below), and I love it so much I’m contemplating getting a second one in a different color. That way, I’d have something to wear while washing the first one, and I can bring two of them on a trip without people thinking I’m just wearing the exact same top every day instead of varying my wardrobe between the two tops. And for every Sherpa Adventure Gear product sold, a portion of the proceeds go towards education and resources for children in Nepal for the entirety of their education—elementary through college.
The Rolpa Fleece Pullover comes in black, churu pink, khola green, and raja blue, and lists for $50 on the Sherpa site.
