Särmä Wool Fleece Jacket

Särmä Wool Fleece Jacket

Price 67.99 USD 77.99 USD excluding VAT

If you thought fleece couldn't be improved, think again: with the help of natural fibers we did just that. The Särmä Wool Fleece Jacket has a reduced amount of polyester to avoid microplastic pollution, but also introduce some flame-resistance to a garment which generally shouldn't be near a fire at all. Hood sold separately for those who'd prefer to have it.

If you thought fleece couldn't be improved, think again: with the help of natural fibers we did just that. The Särmä Wool Fleece Jacket has a reduced amount of polyester to avoid microplastic pollution, but also introduce some flame-resistance to a garment which generally shouldn't be near a fire at all. Hood sold separately for those who'd prefer to have it.

  • Top layer for mild weather, mid-layer for cold weather
  • No corners cut with features or pockets
  • Reinforced wear-prone areas
  • 28,3/35/36,7 % wool/cotton/polyester blend, 540 g/m2

The established benefits of fleece jackets are retained, so this jacket works as a warm mid-layer underneath a shell jacket or by itself in mild conditions. When it's cold as hell, you could just cocoon yourself in a combination of this fleece and a windproof smock. In theory, these items could be everything a human would need for covering the upper body.

A weight comparison with a regular all-polyester fleece jacket shows a minor increase in weight, part of which is due to additional shoulder reinforcements. Both jackets were size Large Regular and the Wool Fleece Jacket had a separate hood attached for a fair comparison.

  • Old Särmä Hooded Fleece Jacket: 1100 g
  • Särmä Wool Fleece Jacket: 1280 g


As we phase out our obsolete fleece jackets, the hooded and hoodless variants gave their best features to this newcomer. The most obvious difference is the hood, which you can buy separately if required: one size for X-Small to Medium jackets and another size for Large jackets and up.

  • Fits like a mid-layer or light jacket
  • Oxford reinforcements under forearms and on shoulders
  • Backpack-friendly: no shoulder seam even hidden under the reinforcement
  • Two zippered low front pockets
  • Zippered pockets on the chest and sleeve.
  • Cord grommet in the chest pocket
  • Hook base for patches on the sleeve
  • Adjustable hem and cuffs for ventilation

Material and care

Bonded 540 g/m2 wool-cotton-polyester interlock knit. Fairly dense stuff, brushed to resemble frieze and insulate better. There are two sides to one layer: the outside has more wool for better performance, and the inside is weighed more towards cotton for comfort.

  • Wool: 28,3 %
  • Cotton: 35 %
  • PES (polyester): 36,7 %
  • Reinforcements: 100 % PES oxford

Some color may transfer from the product before the first wash. Wash at 40 degrees Celsius, hang dry. We recommend using a washing bag (such as Guppyfriend) to protect the garment and minimize the release of microfibers into the sewer.

Just received my Sarma wool jacket, and am very impressed with it. Fit and size are both spot-on and price point is great. Somewhat wind resistant and better looking than fleece. Just wish it was made in the EU or Finland, but the quality is good for the PRC...

Very happy with my Sarma wool jacket order. I'm 173cm with cest of 112cm and L-size fits perfectly.
Haven't tested yet in the range but I'm expecting that it will work just fine.
Looking forward now for some colors, e.g. olive green, grey wolf/anthracite etc, made in Europe preferably

Quite a nice jacket. I got a small-regular and it fits me just fine (I’m 64in tall with a 38in chest). And feels reasonably durable for the price and material choices.

A few trivial design changes I would make is that I would use less Velcro around the cuffs or use polyester for the strap because that area tends to fold too much and becomes bulky. The zippers are rather too easy to zip/unzip and there should be a little pocket at the top of the zipper opening to prevent the zipper itself from accidentally coming undone. The sleeves should have a strip of polyester reinforcement that runs the entire length of the sleeve so that the sleeve doesn’t sag as much. I would also use Canadian type buttons instead of zippers for the main front zipper for serviceability but the zippers used on the jacket is like a tank.

Still overall a great functional wool blend jacket and hasn’t cause any problems that would prevent me from buying another one. I would like to see this jacket in more colors than black in the future.

02.03.2019 (Edited 16.10.2019)
EDIT 16.10.2019:
Reilun seittemän kuukauen käytön jälkhen muodostunu ykköstakiksi monenlaiseen toimintaan, kuten tuossa alla alkuperäisessä viestissä helmikuussa 2019 arvioinkin. Alusvaatetuksella ja kerrospukeutumisella voi takin kans oleille lähes kelillä kuin kelillä (pl. tietysti lämpimät kesäkelit), ja kuoritakin kans toimii kylmemmissäki olosuhteissa. Vahva suositus.

Hain säänmukaisen alusvaatetuksen päälle soveltuvaa "välikerrosta", joka olisi myös pitkillä reissuilla sopivan lämpimillä keleillä hyvä ja hengittävä takki/pusakka. No, pitempää reissua vielä tämän kans en ole teheny, kun tämän vasta sain. Tämän päiväisissä ulkopuuhailuissa kotipihalla ja kameran kans lähimettässä toimi just ajattalemallani tavalla; on mukava, hengittävä (no kyllä tuuli läpi käy...) ja sitten kun vetäsin tähän RevolutionRacen kuoritakin päälle, niin olipas mukava kokonaisuus.

Koko on reilu, eli tilasin alunperin 2XL noitten ohjemittojen mukaisesti, mutta positiivisesti (kerrankin) joutu vaihtamaan pienempään kokoon. Näissä näyttää olevan reilu tuo hihansuu, mutta hyvät kiristysmahollisuuet eliminoi sen. Huppu tuli nyt tähän kantasikana kaupan päälle, mutta olisin ehottomasti tilannut sen muutenkin. Ja tämän päiväsessä kelissä oli hyvä, kun samalla suojaa tuulelta niskaa/kaulaa, vaikka ei pään yli vedäkään. Ja olen siis 180cm/110kg melekein pelekkää lihasta (NOT)
Uskon, että tästä tullee itelle niin partiohommiin, valokuvauskeikoille, töihin (ulkona-sisällä-ulkona-sisällä...), ja muuhunkin liikkumiseen se ykköstakki/välipusero.
Pitemmän käytön ja kokemuksen jälkhen tulen tämän kumoamaan, jos virheostokselta sen jälkhen tuntuu. Epäilen kyllä, että tykkään tästä jatkossakin. Suosittelen, jos tämän tyyppistä asua haet.

ABSOLUTELY Love this jacket!!! Being a former USAF jet troop stationed in New England (and a former Eagle Scout), I am always looking for wool clothing/outerwear. It is naturally water resistant, if it does get wet it stays warm and, if done correctly, wool clothing regulates temperature and breathes.

The day this jacket arrived, we were in the midst of a Nor'easter here in Western Massachusetts (we have hills and topography here, unlike Boston) with rain, sleet and 50 kt wind gusts. With a button down wool shirt and a silk weight base layer (with an appropriate rain shell as weather dictated along with Varustelekas Merino Watch Cap) I was plenty warm!! Even without the rain shell, this jacket blocked wind quite effectively and insulated me well. Kudos to whomever came up with the Velcro wrist tabs, as they are welcome, especially with gauntlet gloves (can tuck them in and Velcro your wrists against wind, weather etc). All the pockets are logically arranged with plenty of storage. I'm 6'0" 180 lbs and The Large fits perfect - The drawcord hem just makes this great jacket even better fitting! Oh, and just buy the optional removable hood- you'll be glad you did!!

Hyvä päällitakkina ja vielä parempi välikerroksena esim. brittiläisen windproof smockin vuorina, paukkupakkaset tarkenee leikiten kun alle vielä heittää inttipoolon. Large regular toimii 180cm/100kg kokoiselle, itselläni UK windproof smock päällitakkina kokoa 180/104, jonka alle tämä sopii täydellisesti.

I bought a Särmä wool fleece jacket with the hood back in February and wore it throughout the remainder of the winter and spring of 2019. This jacket is well made and very warm. Pockets are well placed as are things like zippered underarm vents. I bought a size large enough that I could wear an undershirt and medium sweater without binding and couldn't be happier. I live in the eastern foothills of the Rockies and unless we have a cold front or bad storm this jacket has been all I've needed on most days and a good sweater has made most nights comfortable. For the price this jacket cannot be beat!

Välikerrokseksi kuoritakin alle hankin tämän. On kyllä hyvä, ei voi paljoa valittaa. Ei tunnu siltä, että olisi turannut tuhottoman paksua lämpötakkia takin alle, tämän kanssa touhutessa voi heiluttaa muutakin kuin peukaloita. Jonkun verran nähnyt käyttöä myös ilman kuorta. Lämmin on ja hengittävä, mutta tuuli pääsee toki jonkun verran läpi. Mukavan modulaarinen varuste/vaate, joka on helppo kaivaa repusta esille, kun tulee kylmä tai sulloa reppuun, kun tulee kuuma. Ei mikään mahdoton tilasyöppö.
