The Women's Vik Hooded Sweater by 66 North - a fleece jacket you do not want to take off!
The brand 66 ° North from Iceland was founded in 1926 and you can feel their experience in the products. They make special clothing for extreme conditions. The designers guarantee perfect fits and that's what you've achieved with the Women's Vik Hooded Sweater. The "next-to-skin" Polartec Power Stretch Pro feels like a fluffy, thin neoprene fabric. One feels very protected by the abrasion-resistant nylon surface and has through the roughened inside a very warm fleece jacket.
Carrying properties through specific details
The fleece jacket is very light and also feels pleasantly soft on the skin. The bi-elastic stretch provides great freedom of movement, is extremely breathable and quick-drying. Unlike all the others fleece Jackets I was surprised that the sleeves have the perfect length with their thumb holes. Due to the stretch material, the thumbholes do not cut into the hands, even with outstretched arms. The hood and the high-cut collar wrap the head like a diving suit tailor-made. The skin-close, anatomical cut ensures that hardly any heat can escape from the body. Further details such as the seamless shoulder and flat seams ensure a high wearing comfort.
Above all, the product convinces with its comfortable, soft wearing and anatomical fit. The fleece jacket offers high thermal performance with low weight and mass. The zipper on the high-cut collar is asymmetrical and does not disturb the face. The perfect middle layer for the cold days on the mountain or in the city. The only downside that I felt on the jacket: the inside lags at first.
