I like this sweater. It came in a material-saving plain plastic bag (in case you wonder for gift-giving presentation purposes). It was not as thick as it looks in the picture, but not that thin either. I think it's just right and will be warm enought but won't be overly warm. I chose the white one because they still had it in my size. I like the pockets. It fits just right and I would say do what I did and order a size up.
