This is an amazing little hoodie...it is so light...especially when I took it out of the shipping box, I thought I had made a terrible mistake...this is too thin to be warm...but I put it on and with the jacket zipped up and the hoodie on with a light merino base layer and a Fjallraven Bergtagen Jacket as the softshell, I went out in a very cold rain and I was warm as toast.

Bergtagen Jacket is exceptionally light and soft...I am 6 feet 185 pounds and got an xlarge to accomodate mid layer and it fits perfectly. It is a work of art but focused on function and not fashion. It is expensive even at a sale price of 20% off (about $450) but Fjallraven makes products that work and that will last. Everything works in terms of layout, the zips, the hood...and it just feels great...so great that i almost want to wear it to bed!!! I wore it out in a cold rain with a Patagonia insulated hoodie as a mid layer and it sheds water like a duck and holds the heat in. Historically I have always purchased cheap soft shells and now have a closet of them...this jacket makes me think it is time to chuck all of them. I have two pairs of Fjallraven Keb pants and they are what brought me into the Fjallraven world....if you are wondering if their stuff is good, all I can say is give it a whirl and backcountry has an awesome return policy, and their gearheads are quite knowledgable and helpful.
