Words by Jennifer Walton 


When you’re waking up to below zero temps then you know it’s important to stay warm. Here is some cozy to keep you feeling comfortable and looking sharp throughout a cold winter’s day in town or in the hills.

Amundsen Boiled Wool Hoodies

From the Norwegians who know their weather and adventure intimately, Amundsen Sports was founded upon the legacy of Roald Amundsen who set out for the South Pole in 1911. When Jorgen Amundsen and his childhood friend Erik Friis founded Amundsen, they set their goals on dressing for their outdoor activities. Available for men and women, this Boiled Hoodie for everyday outdoor is just one of their smart products “built for the future with advanced technical features and state-of-the-art materials.” 100% Merino Wool sourced from Australia is biodegradable, renewable, and recyclable. $249
