The Torridon jacket is a new take on an old hillwalking stalwart, a winning combination of sensible old school features and modern materials. As it comes in both men's and women's versions, we thought we'd test one of each...
Get outside and embrace the great outdoors with Fjӓllrӓven's latest Spring/Summer 2019 collection. Combining functional, timeless designs with the latest sustainable fabrics, the new range includes an update to Fjӓllrӓven's popular Keb family. An award-winning selection of clothing and equipment engineered for technical trekking, the bestselling Keb Jacket and Keb Trousers have been re-introduced for SS19 with an improved fit and greater functionality.
Since it was founded in 1960, one of Fjӓllrӓven's constant driving forces has been that good can always be made better and this season, that rationale has been applied to the Keb Jacket. Taking feedback gathered from its own team members, professional product testers and even Fjӓllrӓven's thousands of social media followers, the R&D team has updated the jacket's construction to make it even more comfortable and practical.
Retaining its original hybrid construction that combines durable and adaptable G-1000 Eco (recycled polyester and organic cotton) with a high-quality stretch fabric, the Keb Jacket and Keb Jacket W offer the ultimate balance of protection from the elements and freedom of movement out on the hill. Ideal for mixed conditions, the G-1000 is wind and water-resistant yet breathable. Core vents allow hot air to be released during periods of high exertion and these have been improved for 2019 with new, two-way zips. This offers ultimate ventilation control and, in windy conditions, the option to open the vent a little bit at each end, allowing heat to escape yet stopping the jacket flapping.
The Keb Jacket has also been updated with an improved fit that features a better sleeve construction. A slimmer fit around the bicep reduces excess material and the cuff has been improved with more stretch fabric for greater comfort. Drawcord adjustment on both sides of the waist, make achieving the perfect fit easy. A small loop has been added inside the Keb Jacket's characteristic large chest pockets, perfect for securing a mobile or GPS and the hood has also been revamped. Now designed with the adjustment cords on the outside, it is easier to repair if needed to improve jacket's overall longevity and ensuring it will accompany you for many more years of adventures.
