Brynje Clothing Review
One of the first backpacking books I ever read advised wearing a string vest under a thin lambswool sweater for comfort in cold weather. I duly bought both items and found that the system worked quite well. The string vest was made by Norwegian company Brynje. Whilst remaining popular in Norway Brynje string vests and other clothing disappeared from British outdoor stores many years ago. Now Brynje is back in the UK, courtesy of new company Nordic Life. Last winter and spring I had the opportunity of trying some Brynje clothing - 2 hats, fleece and, of course, string vest. My review is now on the TGO website here.
