Reedsport is the sweater for long walks at the coast. The deep pockets are sized for hands, shells, and smooth stones. The extra-long length means a little layer of warmth on a breezy day, but with manageable sleeves which work beautifully over a variety of styles and layers. It’s the perfect seasonal crossover.
