    Valknut Tri-Blend Track Zip Hoodie

    The possible real name for this symbol could be Hrungnishjarta - or "Hungnir's heart" as it was mentioned in Snorri Sturlusson's Skáldskaparmál . Hrungnir, which in Old Norse meant 'brawler', is a jötunn in Norse mythology that dies by the hand of mighty Thor. According to myth, his heart was famous for being made of stone "with three sharp-pointed corners."

    However the symbol likely predates even this story in Norse culture and we'll never actually know what the original name was. 

    Today the term Valknut or valknútr comes from the term valknute - which is an ancient Norse symbol often seen on crafts, and maybe most notably the symbol for "command" on your Mac computer keyboard.  That symbol has another story altogether. But the term was basically lifted to project meaning on this three-part triangle design found in Norse imagery.

    This modern neologism Valknut connects valr "the slain" and knut "knot." This largely because it's seen in carvings dealing with death ceremonies. But we don't really know if Vikings used the symbol in this way. They didn't exactly explain what the symbol meant even if it had a specific intent.

    It's basically just cool, mysterious, and connected with Vikings! Here in Minnesota, we love everything Viking. We're very Norwegian, German, and Icelantic, so mysterious Norse icons and runes are often found on our tattoos, shirts, and decorations. We don't really know much about historical Viking symbols. And, to be honest, we don't really care.

    Looking badass at the gym we do care about. Tri-blend hoodies are the comfiest way to do so. The fit, drape, light weight, and ruggedness of tri-blend make it essentially the perfect gym top. It breathes, stretches, doesn't wrinkle, and is as durable as Thor himself.  

    This particular hoodie isn't a Minnesota winter thickness. This thing is for indoors or Summer nights. A comfortable cover. Not part of a Fall or Winter outdoor kit. But used within a warm weather context you'll find it's your go-to.

    Sorry bigs, this one only goes to 2xl. We recommend sizing up one for a comfy drape too. So if you're a natural XL know that this hoodie will have a more fitted look. Nothing crazy. But not super loose.
