The Men's Down Vest No. 6 is a reversible down vest that provides the perfect combination of warmth, functionality and durability. It is made from durable G-1000 Eco and nylon fabrics and is insulated with high quality down that offers a lot of warmth in relation to its weight. Wear the G-1000 side on the outside and you have a durable reinforcement garment that can withstand carrying an armload of wood and other rough wear. If you instead want to be visible, wear the blue side on the outside – this blue is one of the most visible colours in all terrain and weather conditions.
You can warm your hands and store small items in the two large, top-loading pockets with side pockets behind them on the G-1000 side or two zipped side pockets on the blue side. The fabric and details were chosen to minimise their impact on the environment – like G-1000 Eco with recycled polyester and organic cotton as well as the leather details, which are primarily made from leftover pieces of leather.

For over 50 years Fjällräven has had a strong driving force, to develop products that make it easier for people to enjoy the countryside. Their functional, durable and timeless designs sets Fjällräven apart from their competition. The company is best known for its durable and adaptable G-1000 fabric found in many of their products.
Åke Nordin may not have known that he was creating an international company when he turned his passion of creating backpacks into Fjällräven, back in 1960, but since then Fjällräven’s products has sold in over 20 countries. Since its Örnsköldsvik beginnings, Fjällräven has continued to produce innovative, functional products which are appreciated by generations of outdoor enthusiasts across the world and which have also received a number of distinguished awards over the years.
From its very first innovative framed backpacks and lightweight outdoor jackets, Fjӓllrӓven has stayed true to its original mission, not only through the products they produce but their stance on protecting the environment that they draw their inspiration from. Fjӓllrӓven is always looking for new ways to reduce its environmental impact; from its innovative, PFC-free Eco-Shell fabric to its highly ethical and fully traceable Down-sourcing programme.
