high quality, stylish jacket

This is a very functional and stylish jacket. The WINDSTOPPER fabric makes it absolutely windproof and the treatment of the wool makes it quite water and snow resistant as well.
The wool is quite durable and comfortable and so far has held up for two seasons of regular use. I've been quite impressed with how the garment was put together in such a way that the wool was transformed into such a technical fabric.
It only has two pockets, so don't be surprised.
It is quite slim fitting which is a nice alternative to the mostly bagging outdoors clothing currently sold in the US. If you're fit and don't have a big belly, then the fit will be very welcome.

I ordered this jacket because I was looking for something different that was still a nice technical piece. First of all, it looks fantastic. I've had more compliments on this jacket than any garment I've ever owned. I'm 5'11 180# and got the extra large. It fits great across the chest and shoulders and is maybe a hair long in the arms and torso. The cut is athletic and trim. I don't agree that this isn't a warm jacket. It's warmer than my Arc'eryx Gamma. I wore it driving to work today, 40 degrees outside no heat and the window down half way. Nothing on under it except a t-shirt. It blocks the wind very well. The Wyller regulates temperature efficently. My first impression was it isn't a terribly warm coat, but my impression has changed the more I wear it. With a midweight base layer under it I expect it will be quite comfortable down into the teens. With a shell over the top it will be an oven. I've encountered snow squalls while wearing the Wyller and it sheds water nicely. It is not light weight, so it won't be going in the pack. It also lacks an inside zippered pocket - not a deal breaker but one would've been nice. My only other complaint is the zipper isn't as high quality as I'd like to see on a coat of this price. Despite those minor gripes I give the Wyller five stars. It's exactly what I was searching for. A technical jacket that is well made, regulates temperature well and doesn't look like wardrobe from a sci-fi flick.
I'm very interested in this jacket and am...
I'm very interested in this jacket and am just wondering where it is made. All of my other Dale of Norway sweaters are made in Norway and I'm hoping this product is too. Thanks.
Mine says on the tag that it's made in Poland.
Not saying that you're wrong.. But the wool is impress in poland if i'm not totally wrong..
And the rest is made in norway, 400 yards from my house actually.
In Dalekvam, Norway.. Just outside of Bergen..
Dale of Norway
In case you thought Dale has lost its direction, think a gain.
The updated (Gore)Windblock combined with the tried and true close knit characteristics of a classic Dale of Norway sweater. Very good wind protection and fairly warm garment.

OK, I thought my Marmot Gravity was quite a find for the money, and it is. But this is just something special. Theres nothing else like it out there that i'm aware of. Just a work of art in my opinion. It fits like a glove, is super warm, and makes you look like a movie star. Not "Comfy/Cozy" warm, more like hard shell warm. So far very good waterproof/resistance. Ok, bottom line, its Teflon coated, thick & new Norwiegen wool, backed by Gore wind-stopper, lined with soft stuff right up to your chin...so i'll let you GUESS if it's technically adequate...What makes it worth all the bread is the looks you will get in this thing. Yeah, it's that good looking. No joke. I'm not a $300.00+ jacket-kind-of-guy, but i've tried alot of them and am VERY happy i got this one.
