Obermeyer Avalon 1/2 Zip Sweater review. OnTheSnow reviewed this sweater as part of its 2015/2016 Lifestyle Buyers' Guide.


Favorite Features: A throwback classic ski sweater that’s updated and unique at the same time, we love the Obermeyer Avalon’s 1/2 zip style, thumbhole cuffs and merino wool-lending performance. Not to mention that sweet Edelweiss flower design.


Room for Improvement: Wears a little funky when zipped all the way down... to the halfway point, that is. We would have been just fine with a 3/4 zip instead.


Fit: Runs flatteringly true to size with extra length in the arms that we always find convenient.


Manufacturer Description: The Edelweiss flower has been used as a symbol for alpinism, for rugged beauty and purity associated with the Alps. Obermeyer is founded on Bavarian alpine roots and the Avalon sweater is a beautiful tribute to a rich heritage of high alpine pursuits.
