Re: Oh Tonje...

Yes, here in Norway littering is a big no-no. Occasionally there will be the odd beer can or Kvik Lunsj™ wrapper on the ground but in general it's very clean. For her to go to another country and show such a lack of respect for the locals is pretty classless imo.

Re: breathable shell jacket? is there one that lets sweat out but keeps you dry

By the way, I also have a two-ply OR Mountain Cap. I like it too because its bomber windproof and covers my ears and protects my eyes from the sun. Its relatively warm because its windproof. Problem is, I feel kinda icky in it sometimes because it just doesnt breathe that well. A good wool beanie i...

Re: breathable shell jacket? is there one that lets sweat out but keeps you dry

Leo, how tall are you and what size do you wear for the Helikon? I can order EU M/ US L or just plain L, so I'm not sure how to size this item. Sellers don't differentiate which sizes they are are advertising, either EU or US. Even the Helikon website is not quite clear in how they are selling them...

Re: breathable shell jacket? is there one that lets sweat out but keeps you dry

I never wear waterproof jackets for skiing, I've never found any that are breathable enough. For very cold conditions, I wear a polycotton anorak (either a Fjallraven or one of these which is lighter weight: https://www.helikon-tex.com/en_eur/ku-wdn-dc-woodsman-anorak-jacket.html . As long as the sn...

Re: the Nordic Ice Skating Thread

Some fantastic conditions here in Oslo, these photos are from the weekend, skating on the fjord. A lack of snow but some good cold temps has meant I haven't been skiing too much recently, but this is a pretty sweet alternative!

Re: How durable are Alfa BC boots

The Skarvets are fine, I've had mine for three seasons now and they aren't showing any signs of premature wear. The main reason the Alaska would be harder wearing is that the leather is reversed, so the rough side faces out. This just means that any abrasion is less apparent. As long as you don't mi...

Re: Suggestions for some soft shell pants?

@Leo Tasker Have you got any experience with Lundhags? They look the part, very expensive, but are they worth it at all? I've got a pair of their Nordic skates and a friend has one of their jackets (Spreke, maybe?) which he's very happy with. The quality of their stuff seems very good, the styling ...
