Where To Buy The Jack Wolfskin Iceland Jacket
Here is a list of the various online shops from different countries where you can purchase the jacket:
When To Wear It
Iceland is a 3-in-1 jacket, designed to be worn in a variety of occasions. Whether you are looking for a jacket to take with you when hiking and camping, or as a daily options for going to work, you will be all set with Iceland.
It comes in two layers, which are detachable from each other. This way, they can each be worn alone in different weather conditions and activities. When it is time to put them together, it can easily be done with heavy-duty zippers, which are durable and easy to access.
The outer jacket is designed as a waterproof and windproof layer, suitable for wear in Autumn and early Winter. It is lightweight, thin and has a respiratory activity of 6000 g/m2/24h, which will prevent overheating, despite how physically demanding the activity is.
It comes with a high, stand-up collar, with an attached hood that can be adjusted with drawstrings. The Velcro fasteners on the cuffs and the drawstrings in the lower hem help to completely close off the jacket from outside temperatures and conditions.
There are two outer pockets with zipper closures and the main zipper is water-resistant, with a Velcro flap for cover.
Moving on to the inner jacket, which is made of warm and insulating fleece. It comes with a short stand-up collar and two hand-warmer pockets on both sides. This layer is suitable for dry weather and low temperatures.
And when put together, these jackets create a completely different jacket, which is not only water and windproof, but also incredibly warm, while maintaining breathability at optimal levels.
You can wear it throughout Winter and in any environment and weather conditions, be it rain, hail, snow or blizzard. You will be warm, dry and safe the entire time.
Since it comes in two layers, let’s start with the outer one.
This is a 100% Polyamide layer, with Texapore fabric. Texapore is one of the best fabrics for outdoor clothing for both quality and performance. It is comfortable to wear, fully waterproof, windproof and highly breathable. Texapore helps make jackets very weather-resistant, while keeping them lightweight and avoiding bulkiness.
The inner jacket, as said previously, is made of 100% Polyester fleece. But, this is not just any fleece as it is Nanuk 200. This fleece is very good at maintaining body warmth, while being breathable at the same time. Another quality is that it dries quickly, preventing hypothermia in cold temperatures.
Here is an interesting video about Nanuk fleece:
Iceland, similar to other Jack Wolfskin jackets, comes in few color options, which include Black, Olive brown and Dried tomato.
These are all matte and toned down colors, suitable for everyday wear and very classy.
User Reviews, Feedback & Opinions
It’s time to take a look at what online buyers think of this jacket and what their experience has been like.
First things first, it is a very stylish jacket. It makes you look well-dressed and sophisticated, while also being quite comfortable to wear.
Indeed, it is weatherproof as tested by both those who wore it as a daily jacket and hikers. The quality of the fabric is as expected, which means a durable jacket and a smart investment.
Being 3-in-1 comes in handy as you won’t need to purchase several jackets and pack too many layers when out in the woods.
On the downsides, the only “issue” is the hood, which can neither be removed, nor tucked under the collar.
Jack Wolfskin’s Iceland is exactly what you need to have a great and safe time outdoors this upcoming Fall and Winter season. You get three jackets in one and top notch performance. It doesn’t get any better than that!
