Hailing from the small town of Örnsköldsvik in Sweden, a place where mountains and forest meet the sea, Fjällräven is an outdoor clothing and equipment company that’s committed to making nature more accessible. In true Swedish style, the focus is on simplicity and practicality whilst acting responsibly towards people, animals and the environment and inspiring more people to discover outdoor life.
One of Fjällräven’s most popular garments is the Keb Jacket, a hard-wearing trekking jacket, and Fjällräven has generously put up two Keb Jackets – one men’s, one women’s – in our latest competition.
The Keb Jacket is constructed using a combination of wind- and water-resistant G-1000 Eco and highly breathable nylon stretch fabrics to create a hybrid garment - one that offers full freedom of movement with great ventilation, allowing you to keep comfortable when moving at a high pace.
Fjällräven’s G-1000 fabric used in high-wear areas is very durable, and when you combine this with very low weight, you’ll see why it is a great fabric for life in the outdoors. The Greenland Wax makes G-1000 fabric resistant to rain and moisture, ensuring that even if you get caught out in a shower you should remain dry, and the jacket also dries quickly to ensure you stay comfortable all day. Panels of stretch nylon in key areas give full freedom of movement.
G-1000 is a highly breathable fabric which is ideal for strenuous activities in the outdoors, plus it also offers wind protection and almost 100% UVA and UVB protection thanks to the dense weave. This means protection against biting winds and sun damage, and a well waxed garment will also keep mosquitos and other flying insects at bay - ideal for forest escapes and mountain trips. There’s a deep, adjustable helmet-compatible hood, plus large, zippered chest pockets in stretch fabric for extra volume.
A long-time favourite on rock, snow and all mountain and forest terrain, the latest version of the Keb Jacket has been further refined for even better performance - still the reliable, well ventilated outdoor favourite but now with improved fit, increased durability and repair-friendly features. Perfect for year-round mountain and trekking adventures.
We’ve teaming up with Fjällräven to offer a men’s and women's Keb Jacket in our competition.
