Don't let the looks deceive you; the Backcountry.com Wool Hooded Jacket is just modest about its techy side.

Will you guys ever have more of these in...
Will you guys ever have more of these in stock?? If so, any idea when?
We do not plan on getting anymore of these in. Your best lead will be to see what Stoic comes out with in the fall. Their product design and fit is very similar to the B.C.com brand.
During my 2008-9 winter expedition to the Pakistan, Karakoram, I made a radical shift from using polypro/fleece in my layering system to utilizing wool components. The cold weather performance difference was significant. To continue with wool in all aspects of layering, I chose the Backcountry.com Wool Hoody to layer over my Icebreaker merino base layers. I was surprised to find this system was much warmer and more efficient at moisture transport than any cold weather system I have used to date. I was even able to use this jacket as an outer layer on moderately cold days- as long as I kept climbing hard enough to generate some warmth. The athletic cut of this jacket fits me well, but I would prefer a drawcord at the waist to keep warmth in and the snow and wind out. The hood is also close fitting and not bulky, working well with outer shell hoods. This jacket will be a great mid-weight fleece for summer trips. As a bonus, when walking through airports on the trip home I didn't feel like the usual shaggy-fleeced Muppet.

Great Stylish Jacket
This jacket is a great causal / nice jacket to wear out and about. I've worn it to go out drinking, out to a business lunch when it was snowing and everything in between. Very versatile, always looks nice. I get lots of compliments on it. I should mention, when the wind blows really hard this isn't totally windproof. Very windy days aside, this will keep you nice and warm.
Like being hugged by a sheep...
Im 6'2" and 185 and I bought a Large. It fits perfect and is super warm. I live in Utah and is perfect for cold winter days and nights.
Quality and Style
I have been looking for a wool jacket for a while and finally decided to give this jacket a shot. And I must say I cannot be happier. When I first got the jacket it was a little stiff and I wasn't sure if I was going to like it. After wearing it around the house for a few hours it softened up and has been warn everyday since. I am 6'3 195 with a slim build and the XL is perfect. It is a little wide but that I am used to dealing with that since I have a long torso. As far as warmth, I can wear it with a t-shirt on a windless 30 degree day. wind is a problem, but nothing adding a sweatshirt under wont handle. I also wear this under my EMS Gortex jacket and I toasty warm in 5 below. I love the hood and the pockets keep my hands warm. It has a drawstring waist. No cinching at the wrist, but an internal cuff stops the cold very well. The graphite color is pimp and i have gotten muchos complements on it from the ladies. Its nice enough to wear to the office and technical enough to wear out in the wild. Great work on getting this jacket all kinds of right. (Windstopper backing next time and i will buy another in a flash.)
The jacket keeps me warm and fits well. The only problem is the jacket pills very easily around the wrists and forearms.
I'm 5'7" 180lbs. I had ordered a medium but it was too tight for my fit. There weren't any larges available so I decided to go with an XL. It fits fine, but the large would probably fit perfectly. I love the jacket so far. Keeps me warm and looks very good. I've gotten many compliments regarding the jacket, most asking me where I got it which I then referred the website. Definately a jacket I would recommend.
Love this Thing
I'm 6' 165lbs - got a Large and have a little room. Comfortable, warm, breathable and stylish, this jacket straight up rocks. Looks good around town and is durable enough for the backcountry. Blocks a fair amount of wind and sheds some water. The inner lining makes it really soft on the skin without being too cumbersome. Don't expect the hood to fit like a Hoody -- not quite as comfortable but way better in the elements. And the inner cuff takes a little getting used to, but you won't want to go back after that.
I am 5"8 130 and I ordered the small (no more medium left) but it fits well. I could wear the jacket with another sweater inside, but would be tight.
Jacket is very warm. i love the inner sleeves and the ram logo.
not entirely wind proof
Overall very good jacket
Im 5'7 and 145 lbs and the small fits perfectly. The only complaint is with the construction of the hoodie. The hoodie's brim isnt folded in and sewn. Instead it's left "open" and just stitched on top of. This causes the end of the hoodie to fray, which really ruins the look.
Jacket keeps me very warm.

I`m 6,3 and 210lb with pretty long arms...what size should I take????
I am 5'11'' pushing 190. I like a loose comfortable fit but not crazy baggy. I find that most BC.com products I am an XL. However, I purchased this in an XL and it was too long and baggy for me. It may be perfect for you though. When ever they restock with a L i will exchange my XL.
Nenad, I'm 6'3" 220 and the XL fits perfectly.
what is the sizing for mens xxl?

Check the sizing chart.

Does anyone from Backcountry.com know if you guys are gonna have more sizes again in the graphite color instead of the new version with the coffee and grey color in sizes M or L?
Hey P - Unfortunately, we're not getting any more of this specific style. This is last season's model, and has been replaced with the Siphon Wool Hooded Jacket for this season. The Siphon Wool Hooded has shed some weight compared with this style. Much of the feedback on this jacket pegged it as too heavy/restrictive, so in response we lightened up the wool-blend shell and used a grid-fleece lining in the new Siphon Wool Hooded.
What's the difference between this jacket...
What's the difference between this jacket and the siphon wool jacket.
I'm gonna say nothing. I think the Siphon is a newer modelActually, read the post above. I talked to a rep, and they said this version is more athletically-cut.
wool blend? What is it
wool blend? What is it
It's wool that's been woven and blended with other stuff (probably polyester or something). The wool is on the outside and the inside is fleece. It looks less technical than traditional jackets as you can see the weave of the wool and the fleece is hidden on the interior.
Comfortable and cozy
I love this jacket. It's great for blocking the wind if you don't have a shell on. You may be able to feel the wind slightly, but it's not in a way that makes you cold, but refreshed. I love the neck gauntlet the most (like any hoody/jacket should be). The lining is rather soft which is a nice contrast from the wool outside. I've been wearing this on the regular now since the weather has turned cold.
I'm 5'11'' 185 with broad shoulders I...
I'm 5'11'' 185 with broad shoulders I like a comfortable fit (not slim, and not crazy baggy). I have the bc.com full zip hoody and the rime pullover in an XL and I love the fit. Should I go for the L or XL with this item?
You of all people should know to check the sizing chart, but I'd say XL if you want the same fit.It turns out the XL was too big - They were out of Large so I just returned it.
How much will this jacket shrink when...
How much will this jacket shrink when washed (following the washing instructions of course!)
I'd spend the $3-5 and and get it dry cleaned. You won't need to clean this jacket often and I wouldn't risk damaging it in the washer.
Fast and awesome
I used the free shipping on this jacket, that's supposed to take 10+ days, but yeah i got it in 2!!! and this thing totally rocks. comfy and great looking, i am a very fit guy, with a slim waist. This was the Hoodie/Jacket of my dreams, XL fits my chest fine and the slim taper waist fits great. LOVE IT LOVE IT. Backcountry.com rocks!
