I bought ladies Vindur jacket for myself last year and I'm very happy to find that Sierra carries it this year for men. If you are not familiar with this jacket, it's made of high quality materials and is very well constructed. The outer fabric is jersey (knit) and the inner layer (which insulates f... Read More
Reviewed by Bill from Dallas on Thursday, January 9, 2014The product is for broad shouldered (or for those wearing a thick sweater) but with average length arms. I tried the 2xl and the arm length was good (36-37 probably), but at the cost of having the shoulder seams hanging far off my shoulders. That means the XL would likely fit my upper body, but be too short in the arms. If you like the fit of Marmot or MH, then this jacket is not for you.
The inside material is soft, but the outside is definitely a rough acrylic. Aside from the awkward fit for my body shape, I wasn't sure when I would ever reach for this jacket over the otgher jackets I own. So back this jacket goes, thanks to STP for the great return policy.
Reviewed by JA Rake from Bend, Oregon on Wednesday, October 16, 2013A friend returned from Iceland this year with 66 North apparel and loved it so I thought I would give it a try. Just spent several hours outside during a cold evening concert. Given the bulk, or lack thereof, in this jacket it was amazingly warm. Clever design with the pockets (deep enough to easily hold a gloved hand) and the zippers and construction of piece seem to be strong and well manufactured. The chest pocket is too small for a smart phone though. All and all a great outer layer for the cold season(s).
Reviewed by John from Wisconsin on Tuesday, March 12, 2013I was turned on to the 66 North brand when I drove the 'Ring Road' of Iceland last year. Many of the toughest people out there sport 66 North gear and swear by it. I bought a soft-shell jacket for full price in the Reykjavik store and think it was worth every penny. Then I saw this jacket for cheap on Sierra Trading post and jumped on it.
Regarding size, there may be a difference between the offerings in Iceland and the US. The soft-shell I bought was an XL and is nearly skin tight (perfect fit for me). So I was surprised to see this jacket in an XL huge on me. After trading for a large it fits really well, except the length is a bit short. I am 6'1", 190 lbs for reference.
The jacket does a number of things excellently. It has a comfortable ergonomic fit, blocks wind well, breathes well, and is very warm considering how thin it is. You can wear it inside without overheating. The build quality is excellent.
I highly recommend this brand, due to the relatively small publicity it gets in the US you can get a really great product for a low price. Comparable to Arc'teryx and other high end outdoor wear.

Reviewed by dalto from Baltimore, Md. on Wednesday, March 28, 2012I bought one each for my wife and me. Neither of us liked them and we returned them. I found the fabric somewhat stiff and harsh. I've found 66 North to be hit and miss as far as sizing and materials go. The clothes are generally attractive, but there's likely to be something that will keep me from liking the garment.
