Update On My G. Fred Asbell Wool Pullover
Three and a half years ago I did a review on my wool pullover from G. Fred Asbell and I figured it was about time to do an update on that review. Especially since the original review is my most read blog post to date. People are reading that original review daily even after three and a half years.
So, what do I think after three and a half years of hunting and camping in the original wool pullover I purchased? Well, simply put, I love it. First off, you wouldn’t even know it has been used that much. Mine has held up nicely and has become one of my favorite pieces of cold weather clothing. I liked my wool pullover so much that I bought one of their Pathfinder pullovers, got my wife one of their wool jackets (which she loves) and my oldest son ordered one of the Pathfinder pullovers because he liked mine so much.
My wife wore her wool jacket all last winter and loved how warm it kept her. It’s nice to know that I have good quality cold weather clothing that I can rely on living here in central New York during the colder months. I end up wearing my original wool pullover most of the winter when outdoors.
One of the best things about G. Fred Asbell wool clothing is the price point. You’re not spending an arm and a leg to get quality wool clothing. This is wool that the common man (or woman) can afford without breaking the bank. It’s sort of like a Mora knife. You’re getting an awesome product that’s worth way more than you paid for it and you can’t figure out how they do it for that price. Yes, there are a few extra things the higher end wool pullovers have that these don’t but to me the extra cost wasn’t worth it. Maybe if I had money to spend/waste, but a lot of us don’t have the extra to spend.
In the end, after three and a half years of use, I’m glad for every purchase I’ve made from www.AsbellWool.com Disclaimer, I’ve bought and paid full price for everything I’ve received from G. Fred Asbell. They have never sent me anything for free and are unaware, to my knowledge, of my reviews. These are my experiences with the wool products I’ve owned from G. Fred Asbell and nobody else’s. If you own any of their wool what are your thoughts? Do you like it and why? If you don’t like it, why?
Reasons To Buy
- Price Point
- Built To Last
- Supporting Local Mom and Pop Businesses
- Tired of garbage outdoor clothing falling apart
If you’re on the fence about buying one of their wool pullovers, I’d recommend jumping over the fence and making the purchase. You won’t regret it, in my humble opinion. Thanks for reading and now I’m going to throw on my wool pullover and head out into the cold outdoors with snow covered ground knowing I’ll be toasty warm on my adventure.

I have been doing a little research on anoraks and ran across G. Fred Asbells line of anoraks . The anoraks appear very well made but question is what size would i order ? I typically by XL because im 5’9″ and 205 lb. Would i order xl or xxl? Thanks you for your great review of the product .
From my personal experience it depends on the weight of the wool pullover you purchase. I generally wear large in most things. I’m 6’ 190 lbs. The basic anorak (heavy weight) I own is a large and is perfect but the blanket weight pathfinder version I needed an xl so that it fit loose enough for layers underneath. I’d say if you’re going with a blanket weight to size up. Especially if you plan on wearing multiple layers underneath. Hope this was helpful.
