The Fjallraven Men's Abisko Trail Hooded Fleece Jacket pulls its weight year-round, thanks to a clever design that keeps it light, packable, and most importantly, warm. The chest, hood, and shoulders consist of a flat-knitted fleece with soft brushed lining that offers warmth where it's needed most. Meanwhile, grid-structured fleece at the torso, sides, and lower sleeves shaves weight and enhances compressibility for easier packing and superior ventilation. The result is a lightweight jacket you can wear on cool fall hikes and summer summit pushes, or a cozy mid-layer that can be worn under a shell in winter or stowed in your pack on any outdoor excursion, just in case.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
- Fit: True to size
I returned this jacket after trying it on because the zipper and seams are totally uncomfortable. The fleece is nice but what's the point of the fleece if the rest is harsh. It is nicely built and shaped otherwise and looks nice, the color is nice too, but I exchanged it with a Montane that is all the way nice on the skin.
I have another Fjallraven fleece that has similar construction, not as bad but the seams and zipper also are somewhat too rough while the fleece part is awesome, weird design, too bad.
Great everyday piece
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: medium
- Height: 5'10"
- Weight: 165lbs
This is a superb everyday easy wear piece.
I am a medium in all Fjallraven, but this run's a little more trim, so if you want it to wear over a T or baselayer, go normal size. If you want this for over a sweater or similar, consider sizing up. Overall, this is a perfect fall layer or spring hike fleece.
