Another Great Fjallraven Product
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: Runs large

Fjallraven makes great products. The G-1000 material is awesome and super tough. I own two G-1000 shirts which I wear as jackets out in the field. I have taken the G-1000 material through Japanese Barberry, Multiflora Rose, Greenbriar, and rubbed up against countless trees while taking field measurements. They are still in perfect condition. This jacket will be no different as it is the same material.
I don't plan on using it out in the field though. It was pretty expensive but worth the money! I bought this in size medium but ended up returning for a small. I have a 39" chest and an 5'9" weighing in at 150lbs. The medium was actually a really nice fit if I wanted to layer under it. I tried it on with a flannel and a midlayer, which fit very nicely. I just decided to go with a jacket with a little less room. When the small is shipped to me I will probably be able to comfortably wear a flannel underneath or wear a midlayer and have a snug fit.
Comparing this jackets sizing with other products from fjallraven, I would say this is just slightly large.
I love this jacket.

Unlike the other review, I ended up sizing down in this jacket. I'm 5'6", 155 lbs, athletic build and went with a Small. I'm usually a medium in all shirts and most jackets. This jacket fits slimmer than the Greenland jacket, especially in the sleeve/armpit area. The stashable hood is a nice added feature. It's substantial enough for light rain or whenever you'd need a hood, but tucks away nicely for a more casual look. I ended up using the wax that is designed for the G-1000 fabric. Applying the wax (I used a hairdryer) is somewhat of a pain, but once it's on the additional waterproofing is well worth it. The wax doesn't change the appearance or overall feel of the jacket, so don't freak out as you're applying it.
Overall, this will be my go-to casual fall jacket for day to day use.
Looks cool, fits a little small so you may want to size up
