There's nothing worse than being caught unaware. Your boss busting you for checking out a few minutes early is one thing, but when it comes to the great outdoors, being surprised can get dangerous — or at the very least, extremely uncomfortable. Fjällräven’s offerings ensure that you're ready for the elements, but with a sharp eye on modern styling that’s just as fit for braving downtown as it is the great outdoors.
Other than boasting an unpronounceable name, The Sweden-born company uses G-1000 fabric, the ready-for-anything material your journeys demand. Typically used as tent material, G-1000 is made from tightly woven polyesters and cotton that's blended with Greenland wax. Fjällräven founder Åke Nordin decided to make a jacket and trouser set with the material, creating a water and wind-resistant, all-weather product that's not only great for a variety of conditions, but can be used in a variety of outerwear and pieces.
Pieces like the Forest Fleece Jacket. It's made from comfy recycled polyester fleece, featuring reinforced G-1000 fabric on the shoulders, along the zipper, and at the pocket. The two-way front zipper provides another means of ventilation, while the which collar keeps the neck and chin warm. Other thought-out details include two spacious hand pocket with ventilated mesh lining and an adjustable drawcord hem.
