Why We Like The Fjallraven Expedition Down Lite Jacket

Fjallraven's Women's Expedition Down Lite Jacket isn't meant to take the place of its heavy-duty Expedition jacket; rather, it's a version with slightly less down to be better suited to less-severe winter climates. Its lofty yet lightweight down insulation provides dependable warmth without the bulk, while the rugged, water-resistant outer material fends off light flurries.


  • Toasty jacket for exploring cold environments
  • Lofty down insulation is reliably warm and impressively lightweight
  • Durable, water-resistant material fends off flurries
  • Fully protective drawcord hood cinches tight to protect face
  • 2-way zipper lets you access inner layers without fully unzipping
  • Drawcord adjustments at hem and waist seal out chilly air
  • Elastic cuffs stay securely in place

I have never felt cold wearing this jacket

Living in Vail Colorado this is my go to jacket for tooling around town in the winter. When the polar vortex hit in January bringing subzero temps and 90mph winds I wore it skiing - and as promised I never felt cold! Best purchase ever!

Non breathable lining

I bought this very expensive jacket for our harsh winters in Québec city. It is warm, very warm. I don't feel one bit of cold when I wear it. Wore it in -16 Celsius temperatures and I was toasty warm. So much that I came out of it very damp and uncomfortable. I'm an average woman who sweats very little so the issue is not on my end. I am outraged to have paid a fortune for a jacket that isn't breathing. Last Fjallraven product for me. Oh and small detail, you can't detach the hood and it's very ackward for driving because it blocks your blind spot when you try to look sideways.

Amazingly Warm

I bought this jacket about a week ago and have really put it to the test. It has been below freezing every day since getting it and this week it dropped to -20F/-29C. With only a long sleeve shirt on (and some snow pants) I can comfortably walk around even in the -20F/-29C with the jacket zipped all the way up and hood on. Speaking of the hood, it is amazingly puffy and warm. I live in the northern Midwest (in the US) so there is a lot of wind and this jacket does an amazing job of stopping the wind, with gusts up to 60mph I haven't felt the wind cut through once. I love how many pockets there are. The outside pockets are very warm and puffy. Even just wearing knit gloves in -20F/-29C I was able to put my hands in the pockets and they would warm back after about 5min. The pockets are VERY puffy though which does cut down a little on how much stuff you can hold in them (especially without them bulging out too much). I typically have my keys, chapstick, and light knit gloves in one pocket and my phone in the other and my hands still fit just fine, but I personally think the pockets could've been a tiny bit deeper to make up for the space lost to the puff. This jacket is not particularly breathable, so if you are doing any moderate exercise, like uphill hiking or snow shoveling, you will get hot in it. For me at least, this jacket is a little too warm to wear while snow shoveling if it is above 20F without unzipping all the way, but great for just walking around the city or light trail walks with the dogs. Overall, if you end up in weather that is consistently below freezing this jacket is definitely a great buy and I would highly recommend. I bought a Medium and can comfortably fit a knit sweater or hoodie underneath. I could've fit into a Small but I wanted the extra space to layer and the small was snug. I am 5'10'' (179cm), 158lbs My measurements are: Chest 36.5in, Waist 29.5in, Hips 40.5in The jacket length hits me at about crotch height/low butt and the sleeves are long enough to cover my hands when I ball my fists.

Mycket lyckat köp!

Köpte jackan strax före jul, sen kom köldknäppen som knappast märktes under denna fantastiska jacka.

So worth it-i love this jacket so much

I got this jacket last week and wasn't able to use it outside until today (and by that i mean it wasn't cold enough to really test it out). I went to the gym in a thin t shirt and i was so comfortable even though it was below freezing outside! This is the jacket I have been searching for. If you are on the fence, this jacket is worth it.

Warmest coat I have ever owned

When I received this coat as a present, I couldn't believe how thick and warm it was! It feels like wearing a warm sleeping bag. I like that the length isn't too long so I'm still able to move around while staying exceptionally warm. The wind protection is also great. I used it during a Boundary Waters winter trip in northern Minnesota dogsledding and skiing and have no complaints! Sizing is generous - I flex between M and L, went with M for this coat.

Mostly great

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Size Bought:
5' 5"

I love the front pockets on this jacket, and the general level of insulation. It has both snap buttons and a zipper, and I was able to zip it up all the way, so my face was half covered. The red is a very pretty color, and I felt like a Swiss ski guide. My only gripe is that the zipper is difficult to line up at the bottom. I tried 4 or 5 times before I got the zipper fully in the slot. If you're freezing, this will definitely lead to some cussing.

weird fit

I returned this product before using it
Size Bought:
5' 9"

I'm 5'9" and always wear a size medium in Fjallraven and most brands and this medium just wasn't flattering and the hood was huge even if wearing helmet. I'm in Montana and need a super warm jacket which this was but my husband said it looked too puffy and short. It just wasn't going to work with anything I wore, sent it back.
