An interesting and practical combination: the Forest Jacket No.3 from Fjällräven's Numbers Series is made of pure virgin wool with robust G-1000 HD trimmings.
The Swedish outfitter's Numbers Collection stands for innovative, high-quality products made with great care, based on the design and functionality of traditional outdoor clothing.
Just as the winter jacket Forest No.3! It is made of a robust Shetland-woollen material by the renowned, English wool manufacturer Abraham Moon. The material is naturally water-repellent (keeps warm, even in wet condition) and breathable. Furthermore, it does not retain odors. Thanks to the special, robust manner of processing the fabric is extremely hard-wearing and almost windproof.
And the woollen fabric doesn't generate any odors - perfect for use in the forest. This is not only pleasant for the wearer, it also prevents animals from being scared off.
Exposed areas (elbows, underarms, shoulders and lower back) are reinforced with the tough G-1000 HD material. Even the pockets are patched with this material. The material can be waxed for better weather protection (gives the fabric a patina) and is the most durable and robust special fabric Fjällräven has to offer.
Just like all of the functional textiles in the Numbers Series, the jacket is extremely sophisticated right down to the smallest details and is of the highest quality. It sets new standards in terms of strength and durability. Furthermore, the long leather zip extension, as well as the leather-edged loop for the purpose of attaching a radio have been designed with great loving care.
Moreover, the jacket features an extensive amount of functional and versatile pockets. You can properly store cartridges inside the smaller pockets (with mesh insert), which can be found right above the hand pockets.
Furthermore, the extraordinary but practical back pocket is always easy to access.
The Fjällräven Forest No.3 is a particularly durable, sustainable and functional jacket, which can either be worn over a fleece jacket or over a down jacket in extremely cold temperatures, or as an outer layer in cool weather. It has been designed for the purpose of hunting and trekking, as well as for everyday utilization. Yet, it is also a great choice for all those who value traditional products and their exclusiveness.
