The Men's Forest Fleece Jacket is a comfortable fleece jacket made from a robust fleece fabric of recycled polyester. It is perfect as an insulating middle layer under a shell jacket on cold autumn days in the outdoors, but can also be worn as a light jacket when the temperature rises.
Reinforcements in durable G-1000 fabric on the shoulders, along the zip and at the pocket openings provide extra durability where it is most needed. The front zip is two way and can be opened from below for ventilation. A high collar provides warmth around the neck and there is a protective flap in fleece between the zip and chin. Two spacious hand pockets with zips and ventilating mesh lining. Drawcord adjustment at the lower hem and elasticated cuffs.
The fleece is manufactured using an environmentally-friendly process that both spins and dyes the fibres at the same time, which for this model involves approximately 50 percent less water and 32 percent less energy being used than with traditionally manufactured fleece.
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.
