Local butt warmer
The padding in this product is made with Norwegian wool at Fredriksens Fabrikk in Telemark. Here, wool is turned to felt in a mechanical process without use of water og chemicals. The padding slip is made with leftover materials from FOV in Sweden, and sewn together by Sisters in Business in Asker. The long johns themselves are produced in Lithuania in merino wool from South Africa, making the padding a small step on a long journey towards challenging the industry and ourselves to create an alternative, greener and more fair world. Read more about the importance of local production here.

A technical and important element of the padding is that it isn't made of down or similar materials. Insulated garments have many advantages, but a disadvantage is that the insulation effect disappears when you sit on it. The wool felt in this padding won't flatten when you sit on it, and will keep its insulation effect.

Background
Our padded products have been worn and loved for many years by people all over the globe. They were made in recycled polyester and other oil based materials, and as we developed new visions we realised that these materials no longer aligned with our values. In 2021 we decided to start from scratch with our Community. Longs padded is a result of this process. It is made with wool, isn't as thick and comes without zippers. Better yet, the padding is locally produced with Norwegian wool.

Areas of use
The longs are made in merino wool in a mid-weight that makes it a good fit for any activity in cold weather. The opportunity to add padding in the bottom and knees makes it perfect for extra cold activities as well: Skiing and snowboarding with chairlifts, under your waders, kayaking, sailing, hunting, cold nights in your sleeping bag and around the bonfire at basecamp.

The padded series
We are aware that people have different wants and needs, and will therefore in the future offer two lengths and thicknesses. In addition to this product, we will be launching shorts that look like Zipshorts™ padded in the fall of 2022. The shorts will be made in a warmer wool fleece and have zippers in the sides that make it easy to put on and take off. It will in other words be perfect on those days where you need extra warmth around your bottom and thighs, in addition to having the opportunity to take it off if you get too hot.

Knee padding
Longs padded comes with padding for the bottom, but also has pockets in the knees, giving those who need it the opportunity to add some extra cushioning. We suggest cutting out material from old wool socks or a worn out wool sweater for use here if necessary.
