Backcounrty Skiing Canada review Voormi High-E HoodyIt's not too often I get to write a review about a piece of gear that's been integral to my curling activities. However, that's exactly how I've been using the Voormi High-E Hoodie for the past few months: every friday evening I pull it over a T-shirt, step out onto the ice and yell "Hurry Hard" to my companions.
