It all started with a pack.
Fjallraven started when its founder, Ake Nordin, started stitching together backpacks in his mother's basement. Those humble beginnings morphed into one of the most unique and well-respected outdoor brands around today through the dedication to produce high-quality and durable goods that will wear well over time and last after repeated use in rugged conditions. The Ovik 3-in-1 Men's Jacket comes from this heritage, and while its design is oriented more toward everyday, casual use, its components are just as rugged as anything you'll find on the brand's more technical pieces of clothing.
The fabric is made with Fjallraven's eco-friendly G-1000 fabric, which is made from organic cotton and recycled polyester. It comes impregnated with a Greenland wax for wet weather protection and can be strengthened or removed throughout the life of the jacket through either washing, or a simple rub-on application. The zip-out liner jacket is insulated with a synthetic fill and works well as an insulating midlayer; although, it works equally well as a standalone jacket. The hood on the shell jacket is fixed and adjustable, and the hem can be adjusted through a simple and effective drawcord. The cuffs are fitted with button-adjustable tabs, while the four hand pockets have both zippered side, as well as snap-button flaps.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
- Fit: True to size
I got this jacket as a gift but have some feedback to share from the recipient. Overall he really likes the jacket and finds the fabric to be super durable. I got him the brown color but I think I maybe should have gone with the black. He says the brown color is just a little drab, but it's nothing he's too particular about since the jacket is so comfortable. The liner jacket fits him a little bit more snug than expected, but not so much so that it's uncomfortable. However the outer shell fits true to size. If you don't plan on wearing the liner by itself then it won't be an issue. Overall it's a high quality jacket packed with a lot of warmth.
Fjallin' in Love with this Jacket
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: Large
First, I'll say that - in this instance, anyway - Fjallraven's sizing is dead on. I know that their parkas are often large enough to camp in, but this jacket is a dead-ringer for the way (in my experience) a Large coat should fit.
Bit of a boxy cut and it is pretty heavy - think "well broken-in Carhartt jacket" and you're close. The double zipper is sort of a turn-off that I hadn't realized would be utilized here, but it's not as much of a headache as it has been for me with other jackets.
The G-1000 fabric seems indestructible but this is definitely made at the sacrifice of weight. This coat is heavy but I got the sense that it will definitely take a beating.
Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking. Stoked to put it through the wringer this coming winter.
Does the inner jacket zip directly into the shell to make a single jacket, or do they just zip to themselves independently?
