Fjällräven Unveils Four Ultra-Warm, Lightweight 1970s-Inspired Jackets

Dec 11, 2020

In the early 1970s, Fjällräven founder, Åke Nordin spent a cold sleepless night camping in the mountains of Sweden, ultimately prompting him to engineer a jacket that one could “never be cold in,” ultimately giving way to the company’s game-changing Expedition jacket in 1974. Fast forward some 46 years to the present day, and the Swedish outdoor brand has now revealed a new lightweight winter jacket lineup inspired by the qualities and traits of the original Expedition jacket.

Dubbed the “1974 Expedition Series,” this modern interpretation of the jacket is comprised of four new models, the Expedition Long Down Parka, the Expedition Pack Down Hoodie, the Expedition Latt Hoodie, and the Expedition Pack Down Jacket. Guided by the same principles as the company’s inaugural offering from ’74, each of the four jackets is extremely lightweight and extraordinarily warm, with shells and linings made from 100% recycled polyamide and stuffed with high-quality ethically produced 700-fill goose down. The Parka and Pack Down Hoodie also boast adjustable hoods decorated with white leather and yellow braided cord pulls—a blatant nod to the original Fjällräven jacket design. Available now, the Fjällräven 1974 Expedition Series starts at $200 for the Expedition Latt Hoodie and tops out at $600 for the Expedition Long Down Parka.
