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.
I was lucky enough to find a secondhand one of these and it's been and continues to be outstanding. Even when wet is has kept me warm and on the top of the Cheviot last weekend with absolute howling winds pulling the hood up immediately relieved the ear chill. It packs down small, is lightweight and has become my go to jacket, wearing it pretty much everyday since it arrived and it looks exactly the same with very little sign of wear. If I had paid full whack and got it from new I'd still be delighted with it and when this one finally goes which seems a long way off I'd be saving up to get one. Very impressive piece of kit.
I bought the Alfar 3 years ago so it's had a good test out in the Scottish mountains and The Alps. It's a great fit and cosy. Particularly like the high collar and hood. Great under a hardshell. Light and compact to pack away. Just one minor critisism. I like nice big roomy pockets, these are just a tad too small. Maybe the new version has these? Great service from these guys, like all their kit it is quality gear.
I'm new to Jottnar, and I have to say I'm impressed! I just got the Alfar a week ago and I've worn it several times now. It's rock solid. I love it. The Polartech Powerstretch pro feels great, warm without being too warm, and the fit of the jacket is excellent. I'm 5' 9" and weigh 195 with athletic build. The XL fits perfectly. I'm traveling to Mt. Everest in March and plan on using this as a mid-layer now.
