    Details

    Tested tough.

    The Fjallraven Polar is a 300km-long winter adventure across the Arctic tundra, where regular people are selected  given they have the right knowledge and equipment  to steer a dog sled all the way from Signaldalen, Norway to the forests around Jukkasjärvi, in the Swedish Lapland. This event is a chance for everyday people to discover how amazing outdoor life can be in the winter andto  enjoy an adventure of a lifetime, but it's also a chance for Fjallraven's product developers to test their clothing and equipment in the toughest possible conditions: the subarctic wilderness. One such product that's been unanimously approved by the guides and dog mushers of the trip alike is the Men's Polar Guide Insulated Parka.

    A waterproof, winter parka for the most demanding conditions, the Polar Guide is a robust working piece that withstands close contact with excitable dogs and keeps warm through damp, cold weather and sub-zero temps. Hardwearing, water-resistant polyamide with a waterproof Hydratic membrane make up this parka's long-lasting winter weather protection, while G-1000 reinforcements on the shoulders, hood, pockets, and sleeves serve up tough-as-nails durability. Even when wet, the synthetic Supreme Microloft insulation delivers a cozy, furnace-like fit and feel, while the adjustable hood has a removable faux fur trim to allow customized style and protection. And if you're not traveling through the Arctic tundra, but just braving snowy city streets, the Polar Guide has a low-key style to fit in anywhere, and multiple pockets for easy access to any essentials you might want to bring along on your day out.

    It's a beast

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: medium

    I'm a slim guy, 6'0"/160 lbs. I bought a medium, which is sized correctly through the shoulders, but quite generous in the torso. Definitely not a slim fit.
    I tend to run cold. Not the ideal body type for Wisconsin's eternal bitter cold, dark, windy winters. Last year I froze my butt trying to wear a down insulator with vest over it. This set up was not windproof or waterproof, and it leaked feathers everywhere. This year I decided to invest in a quality jacket that is functional, waterproof, durable, and (super hard to find) STYLISH.
    The Fjallraven Polar Guide ticks all of these boxes. I've only had it a few weeks and already it has proven its worth.
    Pluses
    -So warm! Tons of synthetic insulation, and no annoying feathers blowing sticking to my car, house, office, wife. Drop tail insulates my butt from my freezing car seat.
    -Completely waterproof. Wore it for two days hiking in sleet.
    -Looks great. Goes beyond the basic black puffer look which is so played out. I got the Olive color which is more brown than green A huge plus IMO.
    -Durable. The G-1000 fabric feels like it will live as long as I do.
    Minuses
    -Bulky and heavy. Built oversized, and all that insulation's gotta go somewhere!
    -The hood is too big. Very snorkely and gives tunnel vision.
    -Removable faux fur looks great, until the hood goes up. Then you can't see a thing. The fur also makes it difficult to zip all the way up and makes you feel claustrophobic.
    Conclusion. You get what you pay for, and this is a piece that will last a lifetime. I wish I could say it's perfect, it's not. However it looks awesome and performs just as well. Bring it on, Wisconsin.

    Does what it was designed to do

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: X-Small

    I bought this directly from the Fjallraven store but Backcountry has been helpful in my research so I'd thought I share my experience.

    The jacket is warm, really really warm. I bought it hoping it'd be my go to for Minneapolis winters but had to return it after a couple of weeks. It's designed for standing on the back of a dog sled in the arctic, so if you have the need to be in very cold weather while being inactive then it's perfect. If that's not the case then there are other jackets out there for you.

    I like to be on the move and run hot, so I overheated in nearly every activity I used it for: walks, sledding, shoveling snow. I didn't dare take it on winter hike. I opted to finally get the Arc'teryx Atom AR and love it. Very, very different category of jacket than this though.

    Bottom line: It's warm and cozy, perfect for standing around in the super cold.
