Had the Alfar for 2 weeks now (February 2019), the latter of which piste skiing. Very happy, using it as a mid-layer over a thin base and was toasty warm when skiing in a snowstorm. I pulled the hood up under my helmet in lieu of a balaclava and carried on, no worries. Ended up not wearing it for half the week as we had sun everyday after and it was too warm!
Comments on sizing which may be helpful for some. I am 6 foot with a 42-43 inch chest, 35 inch waist and normally order large. I bought a medium after speaking with Jottnar (very helpful Jos) who said I would just fit in a medium so long as over a T-shirt or baselayer (see picture). I actually wore it over a T-shirt and thin turtle neck in the UK and just a baselayer when skiing. This size works for me as it is a trim fit (although could be more trim myself...), but I could easily move my arms about in any direction, never felt constricted. I think that a large would have hung down too far in the back and the sleeves would have been too long.
Only minor niggle is that as it is trim the forearms were a little snug, especially if you sweated a bit, so I had to take a little care when removing it. To be clear, it was not so tight as to restrict circulation, more like form fitting.
Overall, am very happy with it, both from fit and most importantly, functionality. I was actually a little disappointed that it got so warm that I did not need to wear it when skiing!
Lightweight, packable, bags of warmth whilst maintaining breathability. Good fit.
This was my first purchase from the guys. Read their story and being an ex Bootneck thought it would be good to try. Massively impressed with the quality and service. Can’t fault anything. Keep up the great work.
I wore my Alphar as a mid-layer while skiing in Jan19 and it was perfect. It was very cold on the lifts and this provided the right amount of heat to stay warm. I didn’t get too hot either while skiing and of course can undo the zip on my shell and the Alphar if I needed cooling in the descents. I would like to see a version without the hood and just a high collar as I didn’t need the hood when wearing a helmet.
I have also worn it out and about at home in the cold weather either as a midlayer or outer jacket
Great quality garment
As a tropical commonwealth soldier serving in HM Forces I can honestly say I have hit the jackpot with owning the FENRIR MEN'S HOODED DOWN JACKET & ALFAR MEN'S MID-LAYER HYBRID JACKET.
An exceptional quality of Fabric that has been tested in the most coldest of climates in Canada and Norway just to name a few during winter months. It's been used on adventurous training and general day to day life.
Customer service is second to none plus I was offered a military discount during my purchase.
I truly admire the brands support for the military and numerous expeditions across globes.
Proud and privileged to own a piece of kit for all occasions really.
