Product Description

Fjäll Räven Greenland jacket: Outdoor classic from 1968 that was developed in collaboration with members from the 1966 Greenland expedition. The original was made of tent material that was too heavy for lightweight tents. The result was an extremely durable jacket that was much appreciated by climbers. It did not take long for it to gain popularity for general use in forests and fields where it demonstrated rare durability. Today, many of the earlier versions have been passed to younger generations. Made of durable and adaptable G-1000 fabric, it has extra reinforcement over the shoulders and yoke. Two-way zipper with buttons in the front and at the sleeve cuffs. Snugly fitting hood. A classic that is aging with dignity.

Fabric:

  • Outer material G-1000 Original: 65% polyester, 35% cotton

I like this jacket because it looks outdoorsy in a tasteful way, without being made of horrible synthetic fabrics like ChavTex and the like.

But, to let the truth be known, it's not actually very practical for a UK user.

It's not waterproof at all - you will get soaked if it rains for more than a few minutes, however much Greenland wax you put on. (I might try Barbour Thornproof wax next time I re-wax it, to see if that does any better).

It's not warm (and doesn't claim to be). I suppose it's wind-proof but so are a lot of things.

The pockets are good and it seems like it will be hard-wearing.

I kind of like it but for aesthetic rather than practical reasons. An ex-army GoreTex jacket will keep you a million times dryer for a fraction of the price but will make you look like a nincompoop.

First I have to state, these G1000 fabric jackets are not totally waterproof, even after application of Greenland wax; they are 'rain resistant'.
They are however very breathable, hard wearing, windproof and very fast drying. Basically fine woven canvas with a light wax dressing.

The plus points are;

very breathable
wearable over a wide temperature range with suitable layers
hard wearing
almost silent fabric
windproof
a classic design that's ergonomically sound - retro chic
decent pockets
can be worn around camp fires without spark damage
very well made
will outlast any modern waterproof jacket, whether DWR softshell or breathable membrane types
machine washable - use one of the 'friendly' soap based cleaners

Negatives are;

not fully waterproof; rain will eventually soak through
can be expensive in UK - shop around (or buy s/h on eBay)
waxing is a minor chore (approx 20 min for a jacket); waxing really improves the abrasion resistance and lifetime of the fabric.

Verdict: great all round outdoor jacket if heavy rain is not anticipated.
Like the old UK army combat jacket, it gets wet when it rains but it dries out rapidly.
Can be stuffed in a bag or rucksack, abused and neglected and still comes up looking great.

I've got five of them (2 x Greenland, winter Greenland, Hunter, Varu) and they do grow on you. ;-)

Look for the Fjallraven Hydratic jackets (Varu etc.) if you need a fully waterproof jacket.
