Expedition Down Lite Jacket - UN Blue
A lighter version of Fjällräven’s classic Expedition Down Jacket from 1974, here with 35% less down to suit milder winter climates - and by “milder” we mean “not polar”. Otherwise exactly like the original: with a generous hood, yellow adjustment cords and spacious pockets, perfect for the depths of winter.
The outer fabric is made of a hardwearing polyamide, with a PFC-free Durable Water Repellent coating to keep off the rain, aided by shoulders that are reinforced with synthetic padding to resist moisture.
The down filling, whilst lighter than the original model is still incredibly warm for most use cases. As with all the down product we sell, you can buy knowing that this down has been sourced in the most responsible and traceable way possible - Fjällräven are committed to using the highest quality of down available and since 2014 have used the Fjällräven Down Promise to ensure this.
The spacious hood is fully adjustable for a perfect fit, along with the classic yellow drawcords with leather details. A two-way zipper on the front allows for maximum mobility and ease of access, and the protective flap with press buttons ensure you’ll keep the elements out. The two top-loaded pockets with flaps also have additional side openings, and an inside storage pocket has a zipper to keep your essentials safe.

PROVENANCE AND ETHICS
The story behind Fjällräven began in 1950 when Åke Nordin, a 14-year-old boy from Örnsköldsvik in Northern Sweden, was about to go for a trek in the mountains. Åke, who spent more time outdoors than indoors, did not like the backpacks that were available at that time. He decided to take matters into his own hands and built a wooden pack frame. To this day Fjällräven stays true to Åke's vision of offering functional equipment for journeys in the outdoors. Fjällräven develop environmentally friendly fabrics and co-operate with partners to improve the environment and support biodiversity.
Fjällräven Down Promise - Fjällräven are committed to the use of down of the highest quality and were one of the first outdoors companies to fully inspect their down supply chain. In 2014 they launched the Fjällräven Down Promise, assuring that their down is 100% traceable and sustainable and that there is absolutely no live plucking involved - they frequently rank number one in global independent assessments of cruelty free down and responsible supply chains.
