A pile jacket is a multifunctional garment that works just as well on hikes as a warming mid-layer, or as a comfortable jacket in the spring, or as a cozy and lovely sweater to wear on the couch. But what should you think about when buying your pile jacket, how do you know which one to choose? Don't worry, in this guide you will find all the answers!
Things to consider
When buying your pile jacket, it's important to think about one thing. What will I use my pile jacket for? What are my needs?
Once you've figured out what your main use for your pile jacket is, the other steps become so much easier. If you want to wear it as a mid-layer, a slim model or a vest may be more suitable, if you want to wear it as a jacket, you may want to choose one of our lined pile jackets.
We at Norrsken try to create all our garments with a view to making them "true to size". This means that you should always be able to choose your usual size. However, size and fit is always very individual and is based on how you want your clothes to fit.
Our Hunnebo jacket has a full zip and is a bit more slim in the model. Therefore, this jacket is particularly suitable if you want to use it as a mid-layer under a jacket. Hunnebo is also lined with a nice soft cotton fabric, which makes it excellent to wear as a stand-alone jacket.
Our classic Inviken jacket is a pile jacket in a half-zip model. Inviken is not lined, which means that it can be perceived as slightly cooler than our other pile jackets, which can be nice if you want to use it as a middle layer or as a jacket when it is a little warmer outside. Inviken is normal in size, but many people like to go up a size anyway to get a more oversized fit.
Just like Inviken, Styrsö is a pile jacket in a half-zip model. However, Styrsö has a soft and comfortable cotton lining that can make the jacket feel slightly warmer. Therefore, it is perfect for use as a stand-alone jacket or fleece, but can of course be used as a mid-layer. Styrsö is normal in size, but as with Inviken, many people like to go up a size for a more oversized fit.
Our fantastic arrow vest Knippla is a wonderful full zip vest with a soft cotton lining that keeps you warm and comfortable. We love using Knippla just as it is or as a warming mid-layer under one of our jackets. Knippla has a straight fit and we recommend that you take your usual size.
Hunnebo and Inviken are also available for children in sizes 98-146. They are the perfect all-round hoodie that can be used independently as a jacket on warmer days or as a warm mid-layer on cooler days. Hunnebo JR is a fullzip model and Inviken JR is a halfzip model, both jackets have a normal fit and therefore you should be able to choose the child's usual size. Our children's pile jackets are created for outdoor activities and play, but are still excellent to use for cozying up at home.
We recommend washing our pile jackets as rarely as possible, as this puts the least amount of wear on the garment. Instead, it is good to hang out the pile jacket on airing if you want a quick refresh. When the pile jacket is to be washed, it is good to think about washing it at 30 degrees with similar colors to keep it as nice as possible.
What fit you want and what colors you like is completely individual and therefore we believe that the most important thing to consider when buying your pile jacket is that you should love it. Therefore, choose your pile jacket according to your needs and preferences, as it is you who will wear the pile jacket for what we hope is many years to come!
