In this brand review, it is time to look at Fjällräven, a Swedish brand that was founded in 1960, by Åke Nordin, in Örnsköldsvik. It started as an innovative brand for hiking and camping backpacks, which then moved on to become one of the most popular manufacturers of outdoor gear.
Their products now do not simply include quality backpacks and traveling bags, but a vast collection of clothing (tops, trousers, jackets and accessories) and outdoor gear, such as tents and sleeping bags. It is a popular brand online that now has its name renowned in many parts of the world.
For our selection, we chose ten of their best jackets for cool weather. Whether you prefer a light jacket, or are one of those people that feel the cold even in Summer, you are sure to find what you are looking for within these options.
We have chosen five men’s jackets and five for women, so let’s get right into it.
Outdoor brands are numerous and some are comparable to each other in regards to how their products perform, their quality and, sometimes, their prices.
Expensive brands can be found everywhere, but some take it a bit to the extreme.
Why are certain brands so expensive and at the same time how come they are so popular?
We live in a time where fad brands that come and go are a dime a dozen and it’s always a bit surprising how high their prices are and how many people buy their products.
It is not surprising, however, when it comes to brands that have been around for years and seem to get more popular as the years go by.
We have looked at some of these outdoor brands that come with crazy prices, including Canada Goose, The North Face and Patagonia, and today we will look at Arc’teryx, one of the most beloved brands by the outdoors communities all over the world.

Buying a jacket can sometimes be an arduous process. You will need to find the right jacket type, and after you are done finding the one that will work best, then there’s the design to focus on, and the style, and the colors and by the end of it you have already spent more time than necessary.
When it comes to different types of jackets, there is plenty of information online on how to be able to tell jackets apart and what to look for when deciding on which jacket type would work best for you.
From down jackets to lightweight rain ones, the styles and types are numerous and knowing the basic differences between each of them is necessary for making the best purchasing decision.
In previous articles of ours we have looked at differences between numerous jackets and brands, and today it’s time to look at Ski jackets versus Winter jackets, to better understand how they differ from each other.
What is the best part of winter? Most definitely not the cold. What, then? Well, winter sports, of course. Skiing, snowboarding, mountain climbing and a whole lot of other sports that can be enjoyed during this season.
But in such weather conditions, wearing appropriate clothes is a necessity and sometimes it’s not as easy as it may seem. You don’t want to be cold, but you don’t want to wear too many clothes, either. That’s why jackets were made. Not all jackets are suitable when you’re climbing up a mountain, though, so that’s why sport jackets were made.
For today’s selection we have chosen 11 jackets by Arc’teryx, the Canadian brand that comes with different sports jackets to suit all sports and all needs, despite the weather conditions.
From insulated jackets, to loose fitting ones, Arc’teryx has thought of everything to keep you warm while you wrestle with snow.
We have already talked about Arc’teryx and Marmot, and compared them to other brands in previous articles.
These are two of the most renowned outdoor clothing brands, Arc’teryx being Canada-based, and Marmot being US-based.
Today we’ll compare them and see how they measure up against each other, and finally decide which one of them is the better option.
So, without further ado, let’s begin!
Winter, this year, took it a bit too seriously and some of us, soon realized that the typical jackets were not going to properly handle this season. Going shopping or spending hours online searching to find the best jacket, might not be everyone’s cup of tea. Some people don’t have the time and others dislike the whole process of shopping. But, there is a type of jacket out there that you can’t go wrong with. Parka jackets.
They were firstly used by the Inuit to withstand freezing temperatures and also protect them from snow and water. Typically, parkas come with a filling of feathers and a hood, which traditionally is lined with a layer of natural fur to protect the face and keep it warm.
Canada Goose, the Canadian brand founded in 1957 in Toronto, has an entire collection of parka jackets, to suit every need and preference. There are light ones and a tad heavier jackets, a large array of designs and depending on what you might prefer, some do not come with fur lining on the hood.
Today in this article we’ve selected several, for both men and women, so it will be a bit easier to choose the right one for you and also give you a general idea on what a parka should be like, in order to provide warmth and also be of a high quality.
