Woolpower Ullfrotte Original Full Zip Jacket - 400g - Pine Green


Brand: Woolpower
Weight: 528 g         17 reviews
The Woolpower Ullfrotte Original Full Zip Jacket - 400g can be worn directly next to the skin as a base-layer, or as a mid-layer garment. In very cold conditions it can be worn over the top of a Woolpower - 200g turtleneck.

Each garment features a terry-knit soft inner in fine merino wool, reinforced with polyamide for better wear-resistance, making it comfortable yet durable. Each garment part is knitted conically to reduce the need for seams, providing a great, comfortable fit.

Woolpower - 400g clothing has a unique warming ability because of its construction and material: moisture is wicked away from the skin keeping you dry, while the wool is capable of retaining body heat even when damp.

Buying for warmer climates? Please take a look at our Woolpower - 200g range.

Their range of base- and mid-layer thermal tops and leggings come highly recommended by both Ray and the entire Woodlore Team. They have become a staple item of our overseas winter expedition kit lists, and are equally important for use back here in the UK.

  Order arrived quickly and well packaged as usual. The item is very well made and although I ordered an XL this time, I may order a size smaller in the future to wear over a base layer or t shirt. The XL is roomy enough to be worn over a couple of layers for myself. The extended arm sleeves with the thumb holes are fantastic, unlike other garments I have these on which are all thin in this area these ones are made of heavier doubled over material and are a godsend. I also have the 200 turtle neck & bottoms and the colour on the 400 is a lot better in being more drab and duller than my 200g versions. In all this is a quality piece of kit, very well made, very warm, length is long to cover & protect your lower back area from chills and a great high collar for keeping the drafts out. My only criticism is why having gone to a drabber colour which helps you blend in better with your surroundings would you want to put a bright white large lettered logo on the collar. Now I’m not against branding, I love my Fjallraven & Swanndri logos, but they are small and dull in comparison but when the whole idea of being out in nature is to blend in why would they do this. The reason I mention it is because I just saw Ben Fogle wearing this item on his show but they must of changed the colour scheme, his one was the same colour of my 200g version, but the logo on the back of the collar is in black, they should of stuck with black. The colour would not put me off purchasing another, but its seems they have gone slightly backwards after making such a good choice to make the garment duller and not so bright, and then sticking a hideous large white logo on the back of it.

  My mid layer of choice for walking in the Peak District during the recent February 2021 easterly winter blast. It works especially well with a wool base layer as it stays warm even if one does perspire a tad. Lack of pockets does mean it's not the best for a general purpose jacket on its own but that's not the point as I'm more than happy. It ticks all the boxes of a warm wooly mid layer.

  This is a great piece of kit. It is snug fitting and quite 'stretchy' making it very comfy to wear. It feels nice on the skin and did not itch me at all around my exposed neck. Arms are not overly long when not using the thumb holes, and not so short they pull when you are using them. I have only worn it, so far, for one long weekend, so I cannot say if it will last. It did however hold up fine on the first outing. When wearing it under a smock during the day, (over a thin cheap merino 200g top), at around +6, it was lovely and warm but not too hot. When worn with an insulated jacket added at night (-2 and sitting around), it did an excellent job of keeping me warmer than i would have been, based on past experience. It fits nice and long in the body (I am 6'1 and slim and have a size medium). It covers up the lower back brilliantly. It has never ridden up when bending to work or lift and carry. It did not smell at all after three days of constant wear (even wore it in a sleeping bag at night). I aired it out as recommended, but it really did not seem to need it. The only thing I am not so keen on is a big metal zip pull dangling around the neck. It works fine, but for military wear it is a bit reflective, and as a mid layer it would be better with a material zip pull to avoid you mixing it up with the zip pull on the top layer. Overall, it looks and feels like a quality item, it is nice to wear and does the job very well. I look forward to its next proper outing. It looks quite smart and is so comfy that I have taken to wearing it about the house.

  I am very disappointed in the product and sent it back for a refund. There are 3 reasons: 1) I would never buy something with a huge brandname logo since I find it tacky. Nowhere do the photos show the sweater from the back, where 'Woolpower' is emblazoned across the collar. 2) The size S was huge for a small and I have 2 others of the same brand to compare it to. It was not a small and I almost wonder if it was mislabelled. 3) The colour looks like a much brighter green online (except for the thumbnail, which is more accurate and I saw after ordering). It cost me over $40 US for two-way shipping to end up with no sweater. Please make a note of these remarks for other customers. To not show in the photos that there's a huge logo just doesn't cut it. It's a deal-breaker for me. Thank you.

Dear Leta. Thank you for your comments on the Woolpower 400g Jacket. We are updating the product description to reflect your comments. Also, please bear in mind that the 400g products are sized slightly larger than the 200g products as they are designed to be worn one over the other. Thank you for taking the time to send in your review and we will get your return processed immediately upon its arrival.

  The Woolpower full zip Jacket is very, very warm.

  I am absolutely delighted with this; it is warm, comfortable and the full zip makes it very versatile. I have recently returned from birding and walking in West Wales and it performed fantastically well on its own in unseasonably cold, windy conditions, and was very comfortable under a smock when it rained. I bought the 200g model as well and the two together under my Ventile smock will be my winter go-to I think! Service once again was excellent and a minor order problem was sorted promptly with no fuss. An excellent company that has earned my trust through the quality of the products it sells and the high level of service.

  Just the best merino mid layer you can buy. Wrong size was sent but they replaced with a new one the next day with great efficiency. A pleasure to shop here.
