Fjallraven has been at the forefront of developing amazing gear and clothing since it’s inception in 1960. Fjallraven has been and continues to be a leader in building long lasting and durable outdoor gear. From G1000 fabric and Greenland wax to the legendary Kanken and Numbers Collection Fjallraven is a leader.
Fjallraven founder Ake Nordin is a man who likes to solve problems and after being unable to get comfortable in a bivouak while out in Norther Sweden he pledged that no one should have to be cold while enjoying the great outdoors and this of course brought the legedary Fjallraven Expedition Down Jacket to life!
The Concept was simple, build two down jackets in one! Tests found that putting tow layers of down, aptly called double down found that heat would be maintained more efficiently and cold wind would not be able to push it’s way through the seems. The roomy hood was filled with sythetic fill to ensure that it would maintain its shape year over year.
Originally launched in 1974, the Expedition Down jacket is still an intricate part of Fjallraven’s winter collection. This jacket was deemed to be so unique that a court of appeal in Sweden deemed this piece to be protected under copyright and to be classified as a work of art. Pretty impressive for a down jacket!
As with all Fjallraven Down Jacket’s, the Expedition Down Jacket is made with Fjallraven’s Award Winning Ethically Sourced Premium Goose Down and as part of Fjallraven’s commitment to the environment this jacket is made without the use of Fluorocarbons.
