One of the reasons everyone at Nordiclife is exited about the brand is that it's as yet unknown in the UK. In some states in the US, it holds the honor of second or third best selling brand, but the leap across the pond is...

I was excited to be dressed up again for winter, but I felt suspiciously snug in my kit. I had warm bib tights, Brynje Super Thermo 3/4 neck top, Sprint 3/4 neck Zip polo over that with a Altura Transformer jacket to top it...
