Fantastic and Robust
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: Runs large
- Size Bought: S
I wore mine into the Arctic Circle and stood outside for hours at night. I wore layers underneath but still it’s an impressive coat especially for the cost. I’ve also worn it through many a cold day in upper New England.
It is heavy but subsequently bombproof. I wear a medium in everything but Fjallraven. I’ve consistently bought a small in everything they make jacket wise and it fits as you expect an expedition weight parka to fit, so slightly oversized. Even with this item being a small I had plenty of room for 2-3 layers underneath.
It’s not really meant to be super stylish however I think it looks great. In regards to true Arctic and cold or severe weather parkas this coat only has competition from a Canada Goose Expedition or Snow Mantra (which are triple to cost)
Overall, fantastic coat. Make sure you get a color you love because you’ll probably have this coat a very long time.
