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 Woods Sweater. The essential outerwear is made from warm, comfortable lambswool and sports raglan sleeves with purl stitching. The sweater features G-1000 reinforcements at the elbows and neck, as well as a ribbed hem and cuffs.
