The Austrian Army Wool Jumper is an authentic heavy weight sweater from the Austrian Army. These sweaters are made from 100% real wool and are constructed to offer the best wind and cold resistance possible. From the first time you pick up one of these jumpers, you will quickly see that they are not your ordinary wool sweater.
First and foremost, these jumpers are made thick. The entire sweater feels more like a jacket in thickness than a traditional wool sweater. This is purposely done as these jumpers will act as an insulator for soldiers in extreme cold weather. You may feel like the wool is so thick it is bordering along the lines of being a dual layer sweater. When the wind and cold are as extreme as they can be in the Austrian Alps, you'll appreciate this more than ever. Second these jumpers are designed like all other Austrian army uniforms, they feature no camouflage only the standard Austrian Army olive drab green color. With the classic style of this wool jumper, most people will probably assume the Austrian Army Eagle patch is the logo of the clothing brand who made this sweater.

These are boiled wool. The finest sweaters known, hard to find; civilian equivalents go for $300.00. They are heavy, but also quite comfortable as they breathe really well. They also shed water and are pretty good in the wind. Not for everyone, but it beats fleece. Sparks don't burn holes in it. The fit is tight at the waist and expands at the shoulders; they are military cut, meant to fit close, not baggy. Biggest issue is sizing. Hard to get in larger sizes. This is a great deal.
