this is a good sweater...i'd say medium thickness, but it would definitely keep you warm and dry.
the only reason im not giving it a full 5 stars is for two reasons:
1) the sizing chart is off, i did all the measurements, and you should definitely size up if you have any doubts.
2) i usually wear a medium for my shirts but the sizing chart said i was a 'small' i ordered it and it was pretty tight in the chest and in the arms but this could just be me, i like my sweaters to be on the looser side-- but i think over time it should stretch out a bit in the chest, but im not sure about the arms.
all in all, if you can find a color that both fits on you and looks good, get it, its worth the cash.
ill upload a photo of the product so you can get a look at it
note: there actually isnt a red box around the nixon symbol (on the black one at least)
