So, I'm going to Norway in the winter & I figured I should get something heavier than my hoodie, you know, since it's the Arctic and all. I looked for weeks at a bazillion different jackets, & none of them seemed to take the cold seriously...except for this one right here. Go figure, I says to myself, since it's made by Norwegians! Who else would be able to keep the winds of the fjords off your delicate bits? Well, I don't have the fjord winds in my nethers quite yet, but it's shielding me from the 16 degree temps here in the States superbly...& I don't even have to zip it up to stay warm. (Plus it's got a cute little fox on the front...who doesn't love foxes?) Worth EVERY PENNY.
