Norrøna Svalbard Flannel Shirt Reviewed

As a Canadian, I do know a factor or two about flannels. Some may say we’re all born carrying one, I’ve but to examine that reality tho… However one factor I do know is {that a} flannel jacket is a key part to any good Canadians wardrobe.

After I first noticed the Svalbard Flannel Shirt, it appeared different to those I’ve beforehand owned. It was thinner, which made me assume it will be a light-weight layer for gentle days. The standard of the fabric appeared excessive and it stood out with its vintage-looking elbow and shoulder patches.

Professionals: Cons:
  • Heat
  • Packable
  • Breathable
  • May very well be a extra relaxed fit

After I took it out on my first alpine hike, I used to be fortunately stunned by its heat. We had began the hike noon so I used to be simply in a t-shirt, however as soon as we began establishing camp, the temperature dropped and that’s when the flannel shinned. It had a small footprint in my bag, so bringing it alongside was a no brainer and regardless that it appeared skinny, it was fairly heat. I spent the late afternoon into the night time in it, chopping wooden, establishing my tent and climbing down the path to get contemporary water. All through all these actions, I stayed dry because the breathability of the flannel stunned me.

Since that hike, this flannel has been a go-to for me. I journey lots for work and spend time within the mountains after I’m away and this flannel has been alongside for the experience since I’ve had it. Due to its packable measurement, I by no means need to doubt my choice on bringing it. It all the time fits in my bag and acts as an amazing layer below a jacket if wanted.

I do love ol’ thick wool pink and black Canadian flannel, however this shirt simply appears to be one other addition to the toolbox. It’s tremendous simple to layer below a rain jacket, it takes no room in a bag or suitcase, and it’ll maintain you surprisingly heat when wanted. Let this jacket be your buddy on any journey you may need.
