A new addition to the Satisfashion family is the introduction of my boyfriend, Mark (it’s only right that I get to dress him!) Mark is a radio presenter at Forth 1 in Edinburgh and hosts many large outdoor crowd events as part of his job.
What better way to involve him in Satisfashion than a cool Dress My Boyfriend (@dressmyboy) post featuring the Jöttnar Alfar Mid-layer jacket, something right up Mark’s street from this awesome British Brand Jottnar.
Jottnar, is a British brand making stylish outdoor clothing that is adaptable for many purposes from mountaineering, skiing to winter cycling and hiking. All Jottnar’s styles are practical and breathable, form fitting with an athletic cut to suit all occasions with styles for both Men and Women.
One of Jottnar’s co founders Tommy grew up in Edinburgh so knows all too well about the weather conditions we face on a daily basis, (its not exactly the wildest mountains) but this Jöttnar Alfar Mid-layer jacket is just as well suited on Arthurs Seat (walking the dog) as it is on any Munro.
Tommy and Steve, Jöttnar, the co-founders are former Royal Marine commandos, lifelong mountaineers, climbers and skiers. They were adventuring together in the Norwegian mountains during a fierce Arctic winter when inspiration took hold: the development of technical outdoor clothing that would protect against the raging brutality, whilst capturing the purity and elegance of the Scandinavian landscape. They founded Jöttnar.
This award-winning lightweight jacket has won many accolades in mountain climbing and winter skiing, it recently featured in top outdoor pursuit publications including Sidetracked, Go Outdoors and Trek & Mountain. Personally I think this jacket is awesome, I would know, us females need to borrow from the boyfriend sometimes. The jacket is super cosy and feels like your not wearing a jacket at all! They do also have a fab range for women, check it out.
Sorry back to Marks opinion…
Satisfashion: What is the Jottnar Alfar Jacket like on? Mark : It doesn’t feel like I’ve got a jacket on at all, its so lightweight , like a second skin. I really like the thumb holes for extra warmth and the security pocket inside so I can keep my phone or housekeys. The hood will be amazing for keeping my ears warm whilst out and about.
Satisfashion: When will you choose to wear it ? Mark : It’s a brilliant jacket for my work at outside broadcasts, stage events plus outdoor sports such as five a-side football and running.
Heres a bit of technical chat about the Jöttnar Alfar Mid-layer jacket.
Warmth, comfort and versatility. Incredibly adaptable, the Jöttnar Alfar mountain jacket can be used as either a mid-layer or an outer layer. We use a hybrid construction featuring Polartec® Power Stretch® Pro™ and our own synthetic insulation. Polartec® Power Stretch® Pro™ is engineered to push the performance of stretch fabrics by keeping you warm and dry through touch points that diffuse and evaporate vapor moisture in the outer layer. Reinforced elastic fibers ensure the fabric consistently rebounds after every stretch. This next-to-skin layer stays dry, breathable and comfortable by continuously transferring moisture vapor for rapid evaporation.
This jacket comes highly recommended from myself and Mark, I think it looks stylish to wear with jeans and trainers for those cooler days about town, or as a fab sportswear addition, and would be great as practical outdoor wear too. Mark is going to love wearing his new Jottnar Alfar Mid layer Jacket (when he can steal it off my back 🙂
