At Jack Wolfskin, we’re always keen to ensure our products are made to the highest standards and encourage our clothing, footwear and equipment to be tested by outdoors experts to reinforce these standards.
The latest product to be tested is the Blizzard Men fleece Jacket, which received a glowing review after being tested in freezing conditions in Gironde, France.
The jacket received top marks on its overall design – in particular, the water repellent shoulders were highlighted as they protect the top half of the body from the cold and rain and help to avoid chafing from damaging the jacket.
Other highly commended features include the well-designed collar and hood and the pit zips, which allow for excellent ventilation. Noting this, the reviewer said: “This feature is something I really appreciate and is really good to have so that you can let out some of the heat while walking or cross-country skiing.”
In conclusion, the reviewer said: “…it’s a durable, windproof jacket that is fairly lightweight (size L weighs 780g), that makes a fantastic companion on treks and hikes…In my opinion, when you buy a top-of-the-range product like this, the price is worth it.”
