Fjällräven Skogsö Jacket: A trusty companion for outdoor adventures | Review

In the realm of outdoor gear, Fjällräven stands out for its commitment to quality and durability. The Fjällräven Skogsö Jacket, sporting a stylish indigo blue hue, embodies the brand’s dedication to practical design and lasting performance.

During a multiday trek through the North Holland dune reserve, including an overnight camping stint, I tested out this jacket and relied on it to shield me from the elements while ensuring comfort throughout my journey. Here is my review on how things went.

Fit & Comfort

One of the most impressive aspects of the Fjällräven Skogsö Jacket is its exceptional fit and comfort. Tailored with outdoor enthusiasts in mind, the jacket offers a comfortable fit that allows for unrestricted movement. The adjustable cuffs and hem add to the overall comfort, enabling customization based on personal preferences and weather conditions. The jacket is also well tapered, making it a nice jacket to wear around town as well.

During my trek, I found the G-1000 fabric of the jacket to be particularly effective. It provided excellent wind resistance without sacrificing breathability. Even throughout the warmer hours of the day, I remained dry and comfortable, thanks to the jacket’s ability to wick moisture and regulate temperature effectively. I was lucky enough to have good weather on my short adventure so I was unable to put its water resistance to the test but as with most Fjällräven products, the G1000 Eco material should offer good water resistance on itself but become water repellent with a simple application of Greenland Wax.

Additionally, the jacket’s hood is adjustable and spacious, accommodating headwear or helmets comfortably, providing extra protection during windy or rainy conditions. Whether navigating rough terrain or setting up camp, the jacket’s ergonomic design ensured that it never restricted my movements, allowing me to concentrate on the adventure ahead.

Specifications & features

The Fjällräven Skogsö Jacket comes equipped with a variety of features designed to enhance performance and versatility in outdoor environments. Constructed from Fjällräven’s proprietary G-1000 fabric, the jacket offers a blend of durability and functionality suitable for a range of outdoor activities.

Key features of the Skogsö Jacket include:

  • G-1000 Fabric: A blend of polyester and cotton provides durability, water resistance, and breathability, making it suitable for various outdoor pursuits.
  • Adjustable Hood: The spacious hood can be customized for a snug fit, offering added protection against wind and rain.
  • Multiple Pockets: The jacket includes ample storage options, including two chest pockets and two hand pockets, ensuring convenient access to essentials such as maps, snacks, or a phone.
  • Adjustable Cuffs and Hem: Velcro closures on the cuffs and hem allow for easy adjustments to seal out cold air and moisture.
  • Reinforced Shoulders: Reinforced shoulder panels enhance durability and provide additional protection when carrying a backpack or gear.
