  • Product Description
  • About FjallRaven

An extremely well insulated winter parka for professional use in Arctic conditions. Reliability and functionality have been paramount in its development and every stitch of the jacket has been constructed to withstand considerable pressure and protect its wearer against long exposure to extreme cold. The cut is long and it has a deep storm hood with detachable synthetic fur edging for extra protection against bitter winds. The two-way zipper is hidden behind a protective flap with buttons that are attached with corded ribbon. All buttons and zipper grips are oversized so that they can be easily handled when wearing thick gloves. Several spacious pockets on the chest and lower down have room for a GPS, ski goggles, extra gloves, etc., and cold fingers can be warmed up in the hand warming pockets at chest height. There are also pockets inside the jacket, as well as a pair of detachable braces that let you have the jacket "on" without using the sleeves - practical, for example, when shovelling snow or partaking in other hard work when you don't want to risk losing the jacket in a sudden gust of wind. Sleeve cuffs with Velcro adjustments and a drawcord to adjust the waist. The primary fabric is G-1000 Eco in recycled polyester and organic cotton and the padding consists of ethically produced down. The shoulders, sleeves, lower back and pockets are reinforced with G-1000 HeavyDuty Eco and the jacket is lined with polyamide. The hand warming pockets and the inside of the collar, against the chin, are lined with warm wool from the renowned cloth mill Abraham Moon. The fabric and details have been chosen to minimize their impact on the environment - for example most of the leather details are made from leftover pieces of leather - and to make it easy to replace exposed sections after years of use. Part of the Fjallraven Numbers collection.

Making adventure last since 1960

In the 1950’s, 14 year, old Ake Nordin from Ornskoldsvik in Northern Sweden spent more time outdoors than indoors. After many long treks in the mountains, Ake decided the backpacks at the time were unsatisfactory and took matters into his own hands by building a wooden frame. This evenly distributed weight across his back so the pack did not end up uneven, pear, shaped, and uncomfortable. It also meant he could carry more weight with ease. Ake’s innovation quickly caught on and in 1960 Fjallraven became the first to commercially make and distribute framed backpacks.

Fjallraven means Arctic Fox in Swedish, honoring the small and highly adaptable predator that lives in the Swedish mountains under the harshest conditions. From the small town of Ornskoldsvik, Fjallraven has now expanded to every corner in the world. The fundamental ideas remain the same; provide functional, durable, and timeless equipment to make the outdoors more enjoyable for all. We continue to find smart, innovative solutions to make every adventure an unforgettable one.

AN IDEA THAT CARRIED WEIGHT

Ake built his first framed backpack in his basement with his mother’s sewing machine. Using strong cotton fabric for the pack, he attached the wooden frame using leather straps and used calfskin for the support straps. Not only was the pack more comfortable and distributed weight evenly, it also increased ventilation between his back and the pack. Soon after, during a trip up North, Ake’s invention caught the attention of the indigenous Sami people who spent weeks at a time high up in the mountains. They asked Ake to build them a backpack and after that a tent. Fjallraven had found its beginning.
