A full-featured midlayer.
For the most part, shell jackets get all the attention with a lot bells and whistles thrown in to make them all the more functional, but midlayers tend to be neglected in terms of features with maybe a pocket or two thrown in for good measure. Well, Norrona is changing all that with its Men's Lyngen Powerstretch Pro Hooded Fleece Jacket. This full-featured midlayer is made with Polartec Power Stretch fleece, making it breathable and comfortable to wear under a shell, but where it really shines is with its well-conceived and executed design.
The Lyngen is semi-fitted to keep bulk down and the fit streamlined to keep it comfortable when worn with a shell. The thumbholes keep the sleeves securely in place, so you won't get that annoying feeling of your midlayer crawling up you arms when you're hiking or skiing. Two large zippered chest pockets secure anything you want to keep warm and close to your body. The close-fitting hood can be comfortably worn under a helmet and features an integrated face mask that can be tucked away during those warmer days. Pretty sweet, eh?

After hearing a raving review about this piece from a trusted customer i had to give it a try. This is a great alternative to a down mid layer or touring piece. It was a little thicker then expected so will be used on colder mornings but is incredibly comfortable and packs well. I got the large in this which fits me perfect and i am tall/skinny guy.
