Exceptionally strong and reliable tunnel tent for winter expeditions in Arctic conditions. A prize-winning model with all details designed to withstand extreme stress and so that they can be handled with thick gloves on. The tent comes with double sets of DAC Pressfit poles for excellent stability in high winds. In addition, the strong 75D polyester fabric gives a tent that is not affected by moisture or temperature changes. Perfect for long ski touring trips and other adventures in demanding winter climates. A number of specialised features simplify tent life and make it possible to make camp and get into shelter quickly. Silicon-treated pole sleeves and fox feet with a fast-release system make pitching and taking down the tent fast and easy. Snow skirts around the tent stop snow drifting into the vestibule and inner tent, and snow vents in both vestibule doors mean you can put out a saucepan to collect snow for melting without leaving the security of the tent or letting wind and drifting snow into the vestibule. The snow vents also make it possible to pass equipment from the vestibule to expedition members working outside the tent. Durable, reflective guylines in Dyneema, with double adjustments so their length can be altered in two places - practical when pegs are covered with snow and ice. Tent pegs are extra long (20cm) and sturdy for stable anchoring in difficult terrain. Full height in the entire inner tent and the extra large vestibule gives room for gear, cooking and carrying out tasks. A clothesline in the vestibule and three in the inner tent can be used to dry equipment and ten mesh pockets keep small items organised. Large, highly positioned vents give excellent airflow and minimise condensation, but can also be completely closed when needed. The tent's orange colour has been chosen for high visibility in winter landscapes and its extra large reflective details make it visible in the dark. A pack bag for snow pegs (an accessory) is included.
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.
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.
