- Q & A
Not quite good.
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: Runs small
- Size Bought: xxl
The arm length and fit in the shoulders were fine, but the jacket is really tapered in the torso. I would say this jacket is "extra slim fit". I'm not fat or skinny and I am kind of muscular, so if you think this is your body type too, I would pass. The fabric seemed a little scratchy, which may have subsided after a few washes.
Norrona /29 Wool Jacket
Classy wool sweater
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
Jonathan Rambo's review covers it pretty well. This is a thinnish but warm sweater. Typical long-and-lean Norrona fit. I'm 5-10 and 140 and the Small fits well. Snap closures on the pockets are a nice touch. The lining of the pockets really is super soft. Fulfills a similar purpose to the (discontinued) Arc'teryx Gothic sweater, but not nearly as bulky.
Real men wear wool!
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
I just got this and all I can say is this sweater/jacket is UNBELIEVABLE! I was thinking it was going to be lined on the entire inside with nylon or some other material, really weighting it down. To my surprise it is a really tight weaved Wool and it is very traditional. There is no liner on this sweater, jut like the wool sweater your grandpa use to wear. It is a little irritating to the skin, but you will probably wear a long sleeve underneath and be just fine. The neck collar is awesome going way up the neck and providing superb coverage. Like all Norrona jackets, it has a zipper guard covering the entirety of the face and chin. Next, the pockets! The material in these hand warming pockets leave your hands so comfy you will never want to take them out. Aside from the finer points, I am a true medium, and chose this in the dark grey in a Men's medium. I am 155 lbs and 5'10". The medium fits me perfectly and I have the extra Norrona length in this sweater, much like many of the fleece /29 series hoodies. All in all I really like this jacket a lot. Again I want to reiterate, it is more of a full zip sweater than a jacket. It is really thin and promotes heat like crazy, but will lack general wind, and weather protection. Will update you all on wear after I have had it a few months.
