Heavy-duty wool for hardcore hermanas.

You've been up to your neck in dirt, sweat, and general desert badassery all week long, so the one t-shirt you brought on your trip is looking pretty beaten down (and smelling like your little brother's gym locker). Good thing you stashed the backcountry.com Immersion Bonded Wool Women's Jacket at camp, so you've got something soft, warm, and hole-free to wear when you're splitting wood, building fires, and whipping up whiskey drinks while your lazy partners are snoozing.

Your hands, knees, hips, shoulders, elbows, and every other body part might be raw and bloody from days of fingerlocks, hand jams, and off-width endurance sessions, but the soft wool blend and bonded fleece lining of the Immersion are the closest thing you'll find to a low-key full-body backcountry massage. The Immersion's not just soft, either—it has a heavyweight design and three-panel hood that will keep you warm when you're sitting by the dying embers of your campfire, swapping scar stories and savoring the last of your hot toddy. If a few drops fall, the DWR treatment will keep you dry (and if the heavens really open up, embrace it, because who knows when your next shower will come along?)

I noticed this is an outlet item. Was it ever available in xsmall? I am wondering because I'm trying to guess sizing on the small. I am 5'2" and 110 lbs. I would like it to be fitted but by no means tight. I want to be able to wear a hoodie or thick sweater underneath. Thanks!

What fiber(s) is the wool blended with?...

What fiber(s) is the wool blended with? And what is the percentage of wool in the fabric? And is the lining a typical 100% polyester fleece? Thanks

Hey Carrie,

The shell is 70% wool and 30% nylon while the lining is 100% polyester fleece.

Thin and Hearty, and super warm!

I really love this jacket because, as the description says. it is "heavy duty wool" but it isn't bulky and huge. It's thinnish and warm and comfortable! The perfect "comfort hoody" which adds a little classiness to your look no matter if you're wearing jeans or pajama pants.

I am a short person (pushing 5'1") and I find that it is a bit long. I don't like things tight, so I ordered a medium, but I probably should have gone with the small.

Warm with Stretch

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

Where else can you find a warm, windproof, stretch-laminate, wool bonded softshell jacket at this price?! The fit is great too- nice and slim, and pretty long. I'm 6' and it hits me below the hip. It's also really warm and soft on the inside. I've worn this casually, hiking, climbing, for softball, in light rain, working in the yard... basically it's good for everything. The cut is a little roomier in the shoulder and upper chest so it's easy to move around without the jacket hiking up. And I love the tiny little goat logo on the chest! Everyone asks where I got it, and I just point to the goat :)

Great Everyday piece

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I have been wearing this for a few months now and love it. It plays its part in keeping me warm without being a bulky jacket. You can wear it out on the town or for a quick hike with the dogs. Its been great on windy days as well since it has a laminate sandwiched in for better wind protection. Its got a good cut, not too slim cut and ample length for those with longer arms. I am 6 ft about 190 and got the XL. Fit me great. Enough pockets to lose your stuff in. Overall I love it!
