Keb Eco-Shell Jacket
Trek through wet woods and backpack under rainfall with the Fjallraven Men's Keb Eco-Shell Jacket protecting you. Made from recycled polyester, this thin, light, three-layer rain jacket represents reliable protection in an eco-friendly construction. Its Eco-Shell membrane has better waterproof breathable ratings than most ski jackets, and fully taped seams prevent a single raindrop from seeping through.
The Keb Eco-Shell Jacket also features zippers at each side for ventilated airflow, and its hood has dual adjustments, helmet-compatibility, and a visor for climb-friendly visibility. There are additional adjustments at the hem and each cuff to further seal out the storm. The zippered sleeve pocket is perfect for maps, and the zippered chest pockets store backpacking essentials.

Over One Year of Extended Use
After a year of using this jacket in a multitude of different environments, situations, and conditions, I highly recommend it. I've found the jacket to be extremely durable. I've used the jacket while hiking through dense vegetation, while carrying logs, and I even had a large river stone explode just a couple of feet away from me and only had minor scuff marks even though I was hit by several large shards of rock. After multiple backpacking trips where I had to wear the jacket for extended periods, there seems to be very little wear and tear, fraying, or anything like that. The jacket is really breathable in cooler temps, with a couple of different options for venting. The zipper is a two-way zipper so it can be adjusted to dump heat, even when it's raining or snowing. The pit zips can be zipped and unzipped easily while on the move, and open up quite a bit. I was worried rain or snow would get inside, but even when fully open I didn't have any issues except during a torrential downpour. Overall it's extremely waterproof. The pockets are massive. I really don't like the styling of the chest, but it's amazing what you can cram into the chest pockets. I've never run out of room to stash gloves, a hat, phone, keys, wallet, maps, PB and Nutella tortilla, and compass, and that's just in the two main chest pockets. I don't use my earbuds on the trail, but you can also weave headphones through a handy hole that leads up from the lower left inside pocket. Hood is great. Easy to adjust and it has a really stuff brim thanks to a wire insert. I am amazed by how warm the jacket is. When I'm hiking or backpacking in temps 30 and above, I usually just wear a lightweight capilene or wool longsleeve shirt. If it's between 0 and 35 with minimal wind I'll wear the longsleeve shirts with a shortsleeve shirt over it. Anything below 0, I'll use a heavyweight wool undershirt over a short or longsleeve wool or capilene shirt. I've worn it in temps down to -30 with sustained winds of 25mph and gusts of 60mph and it never felt like it was letting me down in terms of wind resistance. There are a couple of minor issues. The first is the zipper. Even after a year, I still struggle with getting the zipper completely lined up to zip. It can be a real struggle at times, to the point that it took me so long in one instance that I was worried I was getting hypothermia because I just couldn't get the thing zipped. (It was day 3 of a deep winter backpacking trip.) For $400, it should be dummy proof. I also find the fit to be a bit off. I'm 5' 9

I know it's just a jacket, but it's worthy of so much more. I've worn it in a San Francisco monsoon, and inbounds and out in Utah and Colorado (looking forward to Jackson/Targhee this Winter), Snow days in the Grand Canyon and wet winters down south in the Blue Ridge mountains of Georgia. It's a great exterior shell if you know how to use a layering system in the winter, or a great rain coat in mild temperatures. I'm 5'10

Great jacket (material/built quality)
This jacket has met all expectations for a technical rain jacket. While I cannot speak about durability (only worn a few times), I am confident this won't be an issue as with most Fjallraven gear.

Love the jacket, but....
I love the jacket, it's soft and supple, super light weight, pretty stretchy and dynamic and looks great. This works great inbounds and for ultra light backcountry travel. I really like the fit I'm 6'2" 165lbs and a size large is perfect for room to accommodate layers and still feel dynamic and nimble. I would be swimi g in an XL and a Medium may restrict movement while wearing layers. I really like the storm hood and overall style of this jacket. My criticism is in the features. There is only one interior chest pocket (left side), a pass pocket on the arm (left side) and two exterior chest pockets. No pockets at the stomach level. There is no pocket to stash your skins, and the pit zips do not open enough to dump sufficient amounts of heat. They don't even come up to the arm pits. Also this last one is a bit picky, but I don't like that the zipper is on the left side. I'm use to it now but it threw me for a loop at first.

The side zips act as vents as well as pass through to midlayer pockets . I have the anorak version of this jacket and the lack vents extending to the pits isn’t an issue with this jacket as the material breaths very well while keeping you nice and dry underneath
