Slogging through the transition from winter to spring (sprinter, if you will) can feel like riding out the swings of a pendulum. Will the temperature suddenly plummet? Will it really pour all day? How many jackets is too many jackets to wear?
It’s tough to prepare for unpredictable weather, especially when you’ve been holding out all winter for those glorious warm days simmering on the horizon. But if your gear doesn’t adequately prepare you, it can be hard to muster up the drive to get out there and venture into the elements. As one reader shared when we asked why great gear for women matters: “All women deserve well-fitting, long-lasting clothes. It’s hard to come by, so when we find it, rejoice!!”
Thankfully, Fjällräven makes serious gear for women serious about the outdoors. Since the 1960s, they’ve been pioneering a complete range of functional and durable outdoor products that offer expedition-level technology on even your most modest adventures. The name Fjällräven, which means “Arctic Fox” in Swedish, honors the “small and highly adaptable predator that lives in the Swedish mountains under the harshest conditions.” Durable is the new foxy, and every Fjäll product demonstrates functionality, durability, and dependability.
The rain jacket that will last you a lifetime. Stretchy, breathable, durable, well-cut. We love the generous length of this piece, as well as the plentiful pockets. The Eco-Shell Parka excels at balancing breathability and protection.
Lightweight, nicely cut, high collar, packable, sweet kangaroo pocket. This jacket turns many an eye because it’s subtly more fitted than most pullovers. Plus, who doesn’t love when your jacket can also be your pillow?
This jacket feels like luxury on the inside and sensible workwear on the outside. Fjäll’s G-1000 Eco fabric is built to last, and we dig the natural-toned leather edging. Again, they’re upping the pocket game.
Built for alpine trekking, these pants exemplify Fjäll’s motto of “the outdoor pant perfected.” Durable G-1000® Eco fabric, strategic pockets, panels to reduce chaffing, and zippered ventilation are intelligently designed to keep you equipped for unpredictable conditions. We found the regular fit to be a bit on the long side, but luckily full-time tailors are available at all Fjäll stores and can fix you up.
Doing some technical trekking or climbing? Check out the hardcore, sturdy yet flexible Nikka Trouser. Reinforced rear and knees for extra long last.
On the most bitterly cold days, sometimes you want to stay wrapped up in your comforter all day. Luckily, the Ovik Down Parka provides a more stylish and technical option for staying warm and cozy while encouraging you to venture out of doors. We love the long cut that warms the rear and thighs. With fleece-lined collar, ethically produced goose down, and stylin’ hood, you’ll be equipped for long cold walks around town.
Fjäll weather gear for all weather women. We dig it.
