This insulated jacket is a serious piece of kit that will protect you from thew harshest elements. With durable, windproof outer and warm synthetic fill it's generous size make it ideal for pulling over other layers when conditions deteriorate.
Well-insulated jacket that can handle tough treatment in the mountains. Padded with high-performance G-Loft Supreme, with a spacious hood and several pockets for extra gloves, goggles, etc. Generous cut that makes it easy to pull on over other layers, for example when taking a break. Perfect when you’re braving icy winds above the treeline.
Fjällräven's Bergtagen Insulation Jacket is a large, warm layer that works well in any conditions. It is not a slim, athletic fit but rather a generous, spacious cut that is perfect for throwing on over other layers when warmth becomes the priority. The synthetic fill works well in any conditions while the windproof outer reduces heat loss to the elements. Adjustable cuffs and hem combined with a really good hood help you stay warm and comfortable. The outer material is thinner and much lighter than usual the Fjällräven materials but it works brilliantly for this jacket.
Huge internal drop pockets and massive outer pockets with 2-way zips allow you to throw significant amounts of kit into this jacket when you are sheltering away. It is well made and has the usual durablility you'd expect. I don't think it's an everyday jacket due to the spacious cut but for throwing over all your other layer in the coldest conditions it works wonders at keeping you warm.
