With early snow and temperatures having collapsed to an unusually low -15 degrees centigrade in Stockholm, a nice sweater after an evening training can really make your day. Even though Houdini Sportswear, a Swedish company, was established already in 1993, it appears that the brand is not particularly well known to wider audience even in Sweden. Over the past few months, however, we started to hear more raving whispers about their products. With slightly sceptical minds we became curious and wanted to give a try to M's Power Houdi sweater to see if it really meets the hype. And what can we say? M's Power Houdi is a ridiculously comfortable and great feeling sweater with great design and nice selection of colours. We are not saying that we have tried each and every fleece or sweater on the market, but the Power Houdi certainly matches or surpasses the very best we have seen so far - its feeling against the skin has to be felt! For us, it really is a dream sweater for colder late-summer evenings and winter. And what a great Christmas gift it makes for somebody who enjoys quality sportswear with a beautiful design from a boutique brand. Availability Houdini Sportswear is probably very limited outside the Scandinavia but their webshop appears to deliver at least to a few countries in the continental Europe.
Dream sweater for winter cold: M's Power Houdi by Houdini SportswearDecember 3, 2012 | Clothing
We went running with Gore Bike Wear Turtleneck winter base layer for the very first time tonight. Our initial impressions are extremely positive. It is very light with great quality feel. While it sits tight, it still feels very comfortable and cozy. Gore Bike Wear Turtleneck is a good example of a purpose-build piece of clothing that can make training in a chilly and dark Scandinavian winter a slightly more comfortable experience.
