    Greenland Women's Jacket - Uncle Blue

    DESCRIPTION

    Fjällräven's Greenland Jacket for women in Uncle Blue, is an outdoor classic from 1968 that was developed in collaboration with members from the 1966 Greenland expedition. The original was made of tent material that was too heavy for lightweight tents. The result was an extremely durable jacket that was much appreciated by mountaineers. It didn't take long for it to gain popularity for general use in forests and fields where it demonstrated rare durability.

    Today, many of the earlier versions have been passed to younger generations. Made of hardwearing and adaptable G-1000® fabric, it has extra reinforcement over the shoulders and yoke. Two-way zipper with poppers in the front and at the sleeve cuffs. Spacious chest and hip pockets for all your gear - the hip pockets are exactly the right size for a sandwich! Hand warmer pockets hidden behind the hip pockets. Secure inside pocket with zip. Snugly fitting hood. 

    The G-1000 fabric is waxed when you buy it, you can purchase Greenland Wax to increase the water repellence of the fabric. This should also be added after washing. We will wax your jacket for free in our London store. 

    Please note these jackets are very large fitting - we suggest buying at least one size smaller than you would normally wear. Please consult the size guide below.
