Everything from wind-ready coats to the colourful Kanken bag
Preserving natural order by leaving no trace of human presence is a common practice amongst nature enthusiasts, but to find a company that takes extensive steps to ensure their impact on the natural world is as small as possible is rare, and quite special: and that’s exactly what Fjallraven do.
Fjallraven is clear in its commitment to protecting people, wildlife, and nature. The down used in their winter jackets is all ethically sourced, and the company actively supports conservation work to save the Arctic Fox. When the modern world threatens to impose on the great outdoors, Fjallraven finds new ways to provide sublime yet sustainable products. Since 2015, their waterproof products are Fluorocarbon free, and the clothing and bags have been constructed from organic cotton and recycled polyester. When it comes to finding new ways to protect the natural world, Fjallraven ensure that no stone is left unturned.
Below is our top picks from the brand new Fjallraven range, including the iconic Kanken backpack, now popular the world over.
It’s easy to complete your outdoor attire with Fjallraven, from technical windbreakers to organic cotton to-shirts there’s bound to be something you never knew you needed in the collection. Our favourites include the Abisko Windbreaker Jacket, which features elasticated cuffs, a fitted hood and drawstring hem which keeps winds at bay! The Ovik Fleece Hoody is the ideal partner to the Abisko Jacket, or under your favourite winter coat to keep you warm and cosy when you’re out during the colder months. Also featuring elasticated cuffs and drawstring hoods and hem, this stylish hoody has practical elements to protect you from the elements. When the weather is warmer Fjallraven has a colourful selection of organic cotton t-shirts which will look great with a pair of neutral shorts whether you’re exploring the great outdoors or the city streets.
If anything, Fjallraven is most famous for its rucksack construction- and what a design they are. The coveted Kanken bag has a range of individually designed ergonomic features, from the seat pad in the back to the innovative water resistant fabric, the Kanken is a backpack designed to last a lifetime. We love the Kanken No.2 bag- slightly bigger than its predecessor and made from a water, wind and dirt resistant fabric (Fjallraven’s own G-1000 fabric) this backpack is ideal for travellers and trekkers alike! For those who love to get out and explore the great outdoors, the High Coast 24L capacity rucksack is great for camping. If you’re heading away on a longer journey then a duffle bag is an ideal way to get from A to B with everything but the kitchen sink. Our favourite is the Duffel No.4 Bag, because 30L it’s large enough for all of your travelling essentials but not so cumbersome that you’ll feel mauled during the journey.
