FJERN Vandring Stretch Fleece Hoodie Review.

I was sent this Fjern Vandring stretch fleece hoodie the end of last year. I have been wearing it for a good while and as I sit here typing this I have the item on.

First thing I can say about this fleece hoodie is the manoeuvrability in it the 4 way stretch really works well.

So after wearing this fleece for a few months I can safely say I am able to review this product and it gets a 100% thumbs up from me. It’s comfy, warm and a great fleece to use as part of a layering system.

I’d definitely recommend this item as part of your clothing for a multi day hike or throw it in your bag during the summer months to keep you warm when stopping to refuel.

The LK325 is such a versatile bag and many people choose it for there bushcraft bag and modify it to there needs. There are many videos on youtube

The LK35 was made by Haglofs from the early 70s for the Swedish Army.

Thanks to Klas Nilsson who contacted me via youtube.
