When chest hair just isn't cutting it.
That robust clump of fur residing on your chest may earn you bro points in the hot tub, but it's a pretty poor excuse for a midlayer, so count on the Norrona Men's Trollveggen Warm Wool1 Full-Zip Hoodie when you need something, well, a bit more substantial. Norrona crafted this fleece midlayer from a combination of breathable wool, durable polyester, and nylon to deliver excellent thermal regulation, quick-drying performance, and anti-odor properties. The slim fit allows this piece to be worn either as a baselayer or midlayer, depending on conditions, and the full front zip means you can quickly open things up when that squirrel on your chest needs a breath of fresh air.

- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I'm 5'9" 175 and the medium fits nicely although you should probably be in pretty good shape if you want to use the zipper. I'll use this as my every-day hoodie or under my waterproof shell for skiing. Could probably use some more pockets.
Great all round piece

At first I figured this would be a nice mid layer to use while backcountry snowboarding. The wool in the fabric and Euro fit was what I was after. Features like thumb loops and close fitting hood was what sold me.
I found I wear it all the time now, it looks good enough to be worn into town without looking like I'm in baselayers yet. While its warm enough I use it to hike in with a light baselayer underneath and slap a shell on for the way down.
My favorite fleece\midlayer or whatever you want to call it.
The large fits longer but slender for tall athletic builds. Some might think its tight in forearm but its perfect for me!
