Brynje Antarctic Jacket with Hood - Kaktus Green


Weight: 945 g         4 reviews
The Brynje Antarctic Jacket with Hood is a unique insulating outer/mid-layer, designed for year-round use in cold weather. The garment consists of three important layers: a Teflon-treated merino wool outer, an innovative polypropylene mesh lining, and an additional windproof and breathable membrane. Devised by a team with years of winter expedition experience behind them, this system of synthetic mesh underneath a soft wool layer provides a stronger garment than standard woollen clothing, as well as improved moisture-wicking ability.

While it may sound like an odd combination, this mesh-lined system has been tested and proven over decades' of expeditions in some of the harshest environments. In fact, Brynje clothing was worn by the adventurers Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay, on their legendary expedition to scale Mount Everest in 1953. The merino wool outer provides an extremely soft, warm and comfortable feel, while the mesh inner helps to trap pockets of air giving superb insulation.

The Antarctic Jacket includes a number of much-needed features for winter wear, all of which will be appreciated when the cold weather hits. These include the aforementioned Proline Windstopper windproof membrane, which provides all-over protection from biting winds; a fitted, adjustable hood; a drop-tail hem in the back for keeping out draughts; toggle adjustments at the hem and hood for a close fit; snug cuffs with hand-warming thumb-holes; a full-length zip with a tall collar; zipped chest pockets; zipped hand pockets; and finally, zipped vents under the arms for heat management.

This garment has been designed for year-round use in cold conditions, including extended winter expeditions. Thanks to its casual style, the Antarctic Jacket is equally suitable for use when travelling, walking or everyday wear at home or in the office during the winter months.

  Very warm jacket, perfect for cold windy days. The colour is closer to olive drab than a kaktus lighter green, and the merino wool outer is 70% rather than the listed 80%, that said its still a fantastic piece of kit. Fast delivery.

  I love this jacket. I cant believe how warm and comfortable it is. Although we've still had some cold weather, I'm looking forward to the depths of next winter so that I can use this jacket when I go out. There are four good sized pockets, two on the chest and two hand -warmer pockets. Highly recommended.

  Very impressed - generous cut, without being baggy. Very substantial jacket, with quite a lot of weight to it - you know you are getting quality! Very warm and windproof even as a stand-alone. The green colour is more of an olive drab shade. Wish Brynje would have put the Norwegian Expedition Patch on, as I have seen on the home country ones!
