BERGANS OF NORWAY
/Y MountainLine Wooltech Midlayer Jacket
Statement from the jury: The Technostretch fabric - a blend of merino wool and Cordura - used to make this midlayer jacket has proven to be extremely comfortable to wear. The addition of a ceramic print on the fabric improves robustness. The design is well thought out: the flat seams are placed so that they do not collide with the shoulder straps. The pull tabs are large and usable even with gloves. The close-fitting hood fits well under a helmet. The integrated neck warmer protects against cooling and is also comfortable to wear under a shell jacket. With the /YMountainLine Wooltech Midlayer Jacket, Bergans of Norway has created a midlayer jacket that you can wear all year around.
