Palisade Back-Zip Sweater

Palisade Back-Zip Sweater is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely sweater This is a beautiful sweater, soft and warm. I love the back zipper, adds some unexpected style. Always expect you will have to wear an undershirt with any sweater that has wool in it! I am always cold so I see this as a plus. I am 5' 8" 135 lbs, with really broad shoulders, a large fit perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good in general Super stylish but not comfy enough because of its material I guess

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Cute, but Itchy Bought grey. Very cute sweater. Itchy though. Need to wear a long sleeve t-shirt underneath.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the style and fit! First of all, this sweater fits perfectly, The back zipper adds a touch of whimsy to the sweater. I bought this sweater at the store on sale, but loved it so much I went on line and bought it in another color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this sweater I love this sweater. I got it in a small (usually I am an S or XS) and I was afraid it was going to be too small but it fits perfectly. I think it's really flattering and I love the light lavender/gray color. It's not like anything I've seen before. You can dress it up or down depending on where you're wearing it. I definitely recommend this sweater!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Two-4-One! This sweater is very thick and soft as other reviewers mentioned, but I'd like to point out that it can also be worn as a cardigan-- if you turn it around and leave it unzipped down the front with a t-shirt underneath, it totally works! Not sure if it was intended to work this way, but definitely makes it better value to be able to wear it two different ways!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from For the chilliest of Days ONLY! Got this in the mail and was surprised at how thick it is! I think the picture and description don't really tell the whole story. This is not a "Supersoft" pullover. It is a classic wool sweater (read:thick and just a little bit stiff/itchy - but tolerate, especially with an undershirt). The description also says extra-fine merino wool. It is merino wool, but nothing like the other sweaters I have bought that are labelled extra-fine. This is thick, chunky-knit yarn. That being said, it fits great, is thick without adding bulk (very important) and will be great on the most arctic of Ohio's winter days. Love the Speckle in the gray yarns.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great color! (Shell) I really like the color of this sweater because it looks good with my cool skin tone and is different from the normal fall/winter colors available. Y'know... black, grey, burgundy, dark green. How about some nice colors to cheer us up in the winter?? Anyway, the shell color is refreshing--it's an icy pink with subtle grey marles. The sweater is good quality merino wool that is pretty soft. I have sensitive skin and I can wear this without getting itchy (with a cotton t-shirt underneath). It's a thicker knit so it's nice and warm, too. The back zip is a little weird at first. I didn't like the cold metal touching my neck. But, I unzipped the top an inch or so and it was fine. Like this!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not the best While I've been consistently impressed by Madewell's sweaters, this one fell a bit short of my expectations. The sweater looks chunkier than the picture, the grey darker, the zipper darker, and the fit is a bit too boxy. I'm 5'4, 105lbs, always worn XS sweaters, yet on this one, while the lower sleeves are tight (an issue I've had with a lot of Madewell sweaters actually), the torso is too wide and bunches at both the top of the sleeves and under the arms. Another review mentioned the possibility to wear as a cardigan--for me the sweater's a bit too short to wear turned around. Nonetheless, it is warm, and I'll definitely be wearing it during the winter. I purchased this on final sale, very thankful I did not pay the full 110 for it.
