Fjällräven's Skogso Jacket truly is a 'do everything' jacket in a simple but durable design. This hip-length jacket is made from a combination of G-1000 Lite and G-1000 Original fabric. These are Fjällräven's own hardwearing and versatile fabrics, proven outdoor classics that will prepare you for all types of adventures, all year round.
The G-1000 Lite is used for most of the jacket and is classed as the lightweight, cool version of the Original G-1000 making it an excellent choice for both trekking and general outdoor use. The G-1000 Original fabric is a tougher fabric so has been used on the hood and shoulder for extra reinforcement on the areas that usually see the most wear. The dense weave on these fabrics are made from polyester, cotton and is impregnated with Greenland Wax. This combination makes this jacket extremely durable, very well ventilated and also wind and water resistant. It also provides almost 100% protection against the sun's ultraviolet rays, helping to greatly reduce the risk of sunburn so you can discover the great outdoors without limitations.
Feature wise there's two hand warmer pockets and two chest pockets so there's plenty of space for storing your money, keys, gloves etc. The hood is adjsutable with pull cords both at the front and back. There's also an adjsutable pull cord on the hem to help keep drafts out and give you the best fit. As with all Fjällräven products, attention to detail has been given to every aspect of the garment, even the buttons are nicely engraved with the Fjällräven Arctic Fox logo.
