The Amundsen, named in honor of Roald Amundsen, is one of the Devold Classic collection, originally developed in the mid-1800's. Based on sweaters worn by the Norwegian fishermen working in the northern waters off Iceland and Greenland, the Classic sweaters became the sweaters of choice of the early Arctic and Antarctic explorers. Roald Amundsen traversed the Northwest Passage in 1905, and was the first to reach the South Pole in 1911. This bulky knit sweater is very warm, but benefits from layering under a wind and water resistant jacket when the weather turns wet or the wind howls.
