We love the timeless look of retro-style sweaters and their ability to pair with most anything in our cold weather closets. Heck, we’d wear them every day if doing so didn’t end up making us smell funky. The Cotopaxi Libre Sweater, which pairs heritage-style design with odor-resistant llama fiber, won’t suffer from that problem, so you can wear it weeks long at a time through the colder months of the year.
Designed as an office-to-trail garment, the sweater gets a tailored cut that looks as good as it fits, ensuring you can wear it whether you’re plugging away in a PC at the office or climbing rocks in the backcountry. And with Cotopaxi’s signature llama fiber (the same one they use in their jackets), it should deliver serious warmth and high levels of durability, all while drying fast, shedding moisture, and doing all sorts of technical wonders.
The Cotopaxi Libre Sweater comes in a tailored, unisex silhouette, with a mid-weight knit for the front panel and arms, so you can wear it even during warmer days. Heck, they even threw in a knit mesh panel around back to eliminate sweaty backs even if you spend the whole day carrying a backpack. Raglan sleeves help provide a full range motion for your arms, while double-reinforced seams enhance its toughness for surviving rugged activities. It comes with beefed up ribbing along the neck, cuffs, and hem to help eliminate the stretching and sagging that happens with your usual wool sweaters.
A Kickstarter campaign is currently running for the Cotopaxi Libre Sweater. Pledges to reserve a unit start at $99.
