Travellers Jacket - Limestone
A super versatile travel jacket from Fjällräven made from their G-1000 Lite Eco material. With a multitude of practical pockets, including a security pocket that can be detached and taken with you when you hang the jacket up after a day on the trail.
Classic, simple style and well-thought-through storage make the Travellers Jacket a perfect choice on longer trips; with a styling just as suited to hotel bars and airport lounges as it is on hikes along meandering jungle trails. With pockets for pretty much everything, all positioned for easy access; like the mesh pockets hidden under the yoke on the left of the chest, or the vertical chest pocket on the right-hand side. The inside security pocket is another thought-through detail – it can be detached and taken with you when you hang the jacket up. Two hand pockets and two inside pockets – all with zippers – have room for memory cards, sunscreen and anything else you need through the day.
This jacket is hip length with a ventilation opening at the back yoke. For colder weather there is a hood, which can be rolled up and stowed into the collar when not needed. The front zipper is two-way with an external protective flap and with a drawcord on the lower hem that can be adjusted for a perfect fit. Made from the lightweight, strong G-1000 Lite Eco in recycled polyester and organic cotton, a durable fabric that ventilates well and can resist short showers. It is also quick drying should it become wet.

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 frame.
This backpack frame was the start of Åke's company, Fjällräven, in 1960. The name Fjällräven means Arctic Fox in Swedish and the name is in honour of the small predator which lives in the Swedish mountains in the harshest of climates.
