Description

The Greenland Jacket by Fjallraven is an outdoor classic from 1968 that was developed by Åke Nordin in collaboration with members of the Greenland expedition of 1966. The original was made from tent material that was too heavy for lightweight tents. The result was an extremely durable and much appreciated jacket for climbers. It did not take long for it to gain popularity for general use in forests and fields where it was shown to have rare durability. Today, many of the earlier versions have been passed down to younger generations. The jacket is made from wind and water resistant G-1000 Original with double layers of fabric over the shoulders and yoke. The hardwearing fabric also effectively ventilates out moisture when you are active. For extra protection against wind and water, the jacket can be impregnated with Greenland Wax, which will also increase its lifespan. It has a fixed, snugly fitting hood and a two-way zipper with press buttons at the front. It has two chest pockets with flaps and two spacious top-loaded pockets lower down with extra hand pockets behind that are accessible from the side. The sleeve cuffs can be adjusted with press buttons.

I was torn between buying this jacket or the Greenland No. 1 Special Edition. I liked the 2 tone look and the leather trim of the special editions, but liked the extra pockets on the front of this. In the end I went for function over fashion and I'm glad. I use the 2 big front pockets all the time and they're able to hold loads of stuff. I keep my keys, wallet and my glasses in a hard case in 1 of them alone. I said I sacrificed style for these pockets, but that's not true. The coat looks really cool.

A timeless classic, the Greenland jacket. Extremely durable and versatile - I've had a couple of these down the years and they're as good as the day they were bought despite loads of wear in all conditions and a lot of washes. I have noticed more recent examples of the Greenland have a slightly bigger fit than they used to do, may be worth sizing down for a better fit.
