Designed to be quiet and warm. The Njord collection is 100% windproof and highly water resistant. Built with Kryptek's specially bonded, super quiet brushed tricot with an extremely warm high pile fleece backer for extra warmth. We used a 10/10 lamination between the two layers to keep the wind and water out while keeping you comfortable during the late season.
Jacket and pants are great tested to freezing temp was pleasantly warm walking to the blind and plenty warm during the sit. I wouldn’t recommend it for 40-50 degree weather in any level activity. The quiet of the materials are also a plus. Just wish the jacket had a hood and a rash guard on the zipper at the chin.
Was looking for something in this "weight class" for some time, and kept going back and forth, back and forth. When I started doing more research and seeing this Njord jacket being referred to as the "Cadog 2" I figured, if the original Cadog is as well liked as it is, the 2nd generation must be better. Ended up seeing the Njord jacket on sale for an incredibly cheap price, and it's everything I hoped it would be. If there's any downside to it, it doesn't have a lot of pockets. Honestly, I rarely use my jacket pockets so it has plenty for me so, not a deal breaker by any means. Ended up taking this out coyote hunting on Dec 30th 2021. The morning was 34 degrees and foggy, then warmed up to ~50 with the sun out. Wearing nothing else except a Pelton next to skin layer, my Kryptek Midweight Merino 1/4 zip base layer under the jacket and while sitting at the stands, never got cold even the slightest. By the time it warmed up to 45-ish and fog still burning off, little sun popping through, even while sitting at the stand, I had to open the pit zips (which were easy to access, even while walking from stand to stand with my pack on). Overall this is a very warm jacket, maybe a tad warmer than I even need most the time but, I'm very happy I happened to go to the Kryptek site to see it was on sale and bought it. The insulation is very comfortable, I know I'll end up wearing this jacket more than just while hunting. As far as fit goes, I'm not sure why but, I did try out the Cadog in a Medium and it was a little too bulky for me (I'm 5'7" 135lbs...all clothes are hard to find for me) but, this Njord jacket fits much better in a Medium, possibly even better than my Medium Dalibor jacket as far as length goes. To sum it up, GREAT JACKET!!! Should have bought it sooner.
Bought one of these Jackets the winter, I live in Wyoming pretty cold here. These jackets are very warm for the thickness and not hot when around heat. Great all around jacket and very windproof. Money well spent. this is the only camo that i think really works. Great Job Kryptek.
"Warm but could use some improvement"
Pros: This jacket is extremely warm for its weight and the fleece lining is extra soft. The outer fabric is very quiet. Cons: The collar is poorly designed, it constantly rubs your my beard/chin and can't be folded down. The pockets are a little too small and unusable if you're wearing thick gloves/mittens. The pit zips can't be operated with one hand. The sleeves were a little long for me and the velcro cuffs are a little bulky. Overall I would like this jacket in plain color for wearing around town, especially for its warmth, but it has several small issues that make it less than perfect for hunting.
Awesome Jacket...very quiet...and warm...Sizing is perfect...very well made.
Very happy with this jacket!!! In was as looking for a better "fitted" hunting jacket that I didn't need a ton of layers underneath. Well I found it!! I am an avid duck and deer hunter and wore this with just a thermal base layer underneath in the sleet and rain, windchill was 17 degrees and wind speed was a 10-15 mph out of the north. I never felt cold in the 3 hour hunt. So happy I went with Kryptek gear. Well done Keyptek crew!!
"Njord jacket "
I have had a chance to use this coat for several days now and have to say it is great. It is quiet and very warm. I bought a large thinking it would fit like most large jackets but it ran a bit smaller. Nothing I can’t live with but if I wore a sweatshirt under it it would be a bit too tight, but like I said nothing I can’t work around. I have several Kryptek items and love them all.
Awesome Jacket..Comfort and fit...I have tried lots of camo..the feel is great.. Not to bulky..but keeps you warm.
"Warm quiet jacket."
Simplicity at its best: quiet and warm, exactly what it's supposed to do.
