About Dale of Norway Hesjavollen Fleece Jacket - Merino Wool, Hooded (For Men)
Closeouts. Imagine the combined power of breathable merino wool and soft fleece, and you'll appreciate the performance of Dale of Norway's Hesjavolen jacket -- a fleecy two-layer wool with a smooth and handsome knit on the outside and skin-soft texture within.
Since 1879, Dale of Norway has been faithfully producing high-quality knitwear in traditional Nordic and modern traditions
Fine wool is combed, stretched, spun and dyed using time-tested procedures and then expertly finished on state-of-the-art knitting machines

Nice and warm jacket. Make sure you know it has some spandex so it will fit athletically. Designed for a tighter fit so dont expect to layer heavy underneath. Looks great, but if you want a looser fit go up a size or two.
Best Uses: Daily Use, Going Out, Outdoor Activities

This fit the bill as a mid-layer to wear under Gore-Tex for high-tempo, prolonged winter activity. Like wool should, it stays warm in spite of heavy perspiration. Like wool does, it gets heavy when wet. Very warm, the Hesjavollen is thicker than I expected. The cut is European, meaning order a size up. This is not really a jacket to be worn alone, it is cut slim and short making it a great mid-layer in my ensemble.
