The revolution of a classic: With this anorak Fjällräven has reinvented the well-tired three-layer jacket for mountaineering in terms of design and selection of the material.
The laminate that the Swedish outfitter uses for the Keb Eco-Shell Anorak undergoes a long and laborious production process and contains a large proportion of recycled polyester. It is also treated with a fluorocarbon-free DWR coating. Given the long life of the product, it is a complete success in terms of sustainability!
The fabric is absolutely waterproof and compatible with backpacks, and comes with an abrasion-resistant surface as well. The inside of the anorak is napped, making it pleasant to wear even if you don‘t have long sleeves underneath. Since the anorak has no lining, it can perfectly be combined with a layering system and therefore, it can be used throughout the year.
This jacket has a sporty cut, while it is longer in the back to provide better protection. A thicker fleece or a thin synthetic or down jacket are ideal to be worn underneath. In case you are searching for a warming wrap over the winter, it is recommendable to select one size larger than your normal size. However, the opposite applies if you are looking for a rain jacket over the summer.
Thanks to the stretch of the fabric the hardshell jacket is flexible. Due to its preformed sleeves it is furthermore fit for any kind of movement and does not slide up.
Moreover, the jacket is equipped with a long, yet not a full length zip, which can even be opened from the bottom (for ventilation). This system is optimized for the utilization of climbing harnesses or hip belts of backpacks and offers best comfort. Generally, the anorak scores with its unconventional design and can be worn as well as wrapped around quickly and easily.
The high collar is attached to a storm hood, which is precisely adjustable with or without helmet. In addition to the ventilation zippers on the side, the jacket also features two large, technical cross-over pockets that are easily accessible, even when wearing a belt.
All zippers are rough plastic zippers that even work impeccably in cold temperatures and can also be used well with gloves on.
Obviously, the design is rounded off with the lovingly made leather details on the fox logo.
The Fjällräven Keb Eco Shell anorak is the perfect choice for all those who are looking for a hardshell jacket, which can be used for demanding activities and who also care for sustainability, functionality and design!
