    SH500 Warm Winter Sweater

    I received my red sweater on my birthday this year, February 12th 2018 and have worn it nearly every day since. In a wind and cold free environment it is fantastic but windproof it certainly isn't. At this present time 02.03.18, it is minus 6 outside and the world outside is completely white. I wind tested this jacket by sticking my arm out of the car window at 60 miles an hour in mid February and I have to tell you, it is not wind or cold proof at all.
    Part of the advertising of this jacket is that it was tested in the foothills of Mont Blanc. All I can say to that is must have been a warm spring or autumn day when they tested it because if you don't wear something windproof over or under it, the wind goes straight through it.
    This all my sound negative but this jacket is far from that. The day it arrived, it had just snowed and I had just been out in a lightweight down jacket. It was cold, blizzarding snow and non too pleasant outside. From the very moment I put this jacket on it warmed me up like a hot log fire in a mountain chalet and now, 3 weeks in, I have worn it every day with the exception of two separate days when I washed it. The Danish have a word that is something like 'Hooglii' and it means 'Cosy'. This jumper/jacket is Hooglii and this I promise you, you will not regret buying it. My wife paid £29.99 for the red/burgandy one and if I am honest, I would have paid double that if that's what it was. The only reason I haven't given it 5 stars is because its not windproof. For something that is advertised as 'something tested near Mt. Blanc', I personally would have expected more windproofing. But then you can't have everything for this price. Nice one Quechua, keep up the good work.

    Great in every respect, but the arms are too short

    This fleece has a great cut, plenty of pockets, technical features such as pit zips and would also be great to throw on in the evening when out camping in colder temperatures. It's great value at full price and I got mine for a bargain at £15.99 in a sale online. Unfortunately the sleeves were at least an inch if not two too short for the size so I had to return it.

Features

Fleece material: insulated thanks to air
The fleece component is designed to trap the air thanks to the volume created by its texture; this air acts as a natural insulator, keeping the body warm. It is the brushing of the knit fabric that traps the air.
