Great looking all-round jacket

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The fabric is a bit stiff/hard, and thought the jacket is not bulky, it is not slim either.
It doesn't have hand pockets.
It's still a great looking jacket that you can wear on any day.

Super Versatile

  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

I am really liking this jacket. It's super versatile and I have been wearing it all the time, it has just become my easy go to. Great around town, wind-proof & surprisingly water resistant and easy to layer. I dont have a bad thing to say about this. They certainly are expensive but if you like nice things and can justify a nice go-to coat that will suit all conditions you wont be disappointed.

I love it!!!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

The color is pretty unique

I love it!!!

What is the difference between the Greenland no.1 and the Greenland no.1 special edition?

Hey Andrew - The Greenland No.1 and the Greenland No. 1 Special Edition are essentially the same, but the Special Edition design is more closely based on the original 1968 model. The SE has leather trim and styling of the jacket is subtly different but the materials and fit is the same. Feel free to contact me directly with any additional questions about Fjallraven Jackets.

Great first impression

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

Just received mine in the mail today - wasn't sure if I picked the right size - I'm 5'11'', 44'' chest - but XL fits perfectly so thought I'd share my sizing advice. Sleeves are nice and long and there's room to layer but it's not bulky. Really looking forward to putting it through its paces.

Super all-rounder

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

This jacket I wear as my everyday raincoat. It's waterproof, very stylish, and appears as though it will outlast any other *Tex type of material; just a coat of wax every so often should keep this one going strong for decades to come.

The only downside is there are no hand pockets. It was originally designed as an alpine jacket, so I am not using it as intended by using it as an everywhere rain coat where hand pockets would be nice. So it's almost perfect, and close enough for five stars.

New favourite all-round jacket

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I'm 5'8", 170lbs with an athletic build. I got a medium in this jacket and think it fits perfectly. Shoulder length on this jacket feels good and the ample space in the arms and chest work really well with layers, but don't look weird without layering. The arm length was built for climbing so it's naturally longer which is great to keep you hands warm, or while biking.

What I like most about this jacket is the colouring. I got the Stone Grey/Uncle Blue and it looks much better than I thought it would. It works perfectly for casual wear, and is technical in a heritage way for outdoor adventures (hiking, camping, climbing, biking, etc.).

I haven't tried waxing it yet, but I can attest to the classic way of waterproofing and keep products durable; it just works.

I don't really miss hand warmer pockets because of the sleeve length, and the chest pockets are very nice and convenient, you will probably find yourself using them more often that you thought too. The hood is slimmer than most technical climbing jackets so it's extremely comfortable when wearing it bare, over a hoodie, or over a hat/beanie.

If you haven't guessed by now, I highly recommend this jacket. The attention to detail is the cherry on top, and you won't regret this purchase.

Great looking casual jacket

This is more a casual jacket than an outdoor jacket, but I guess I could see myself using it on a trek. Well made. Fits well - guess the Swedes are slim. Wish they had two hand warmers/ pockets though. Attest to the windproofness of the jacket.

Agreed on the hand warmer pockets but if you read the label this jacket is a replica of their first jacket, which was made for climbing. Apparently climbers are super human and never need to warm their hands. I have the same jacket, I typically wear a medium sized jacket, I ordered this one in a large and it fits like a big US size medium, if that makes sense. I would say Euro Large = US Medium. So i would disagree with 'fits true to size.'
