Featured – Fjallraven Greenland No. 1 Special Edition Jacket

At the Sporting Lodge, we’re big fans of the whole Fjallraven range, but once in a while we come across a particularly stand-out product that deserves its own spotlight! The Greenland No.1 Special Edition jacket is an new twist on an old favourite – with the original Greenland Jacket devised and launched back in 1968.

Extremely comfortable to wear, in a lightweight fabric, but still resistant against showers owing to the G-1000 fabric, this is the perfect jacket for summer. We found it really easy to apply Greenland Wax, and loved how effective the application was for increased durability – this jacket will take you from summer into autumn with no trouble!

Practical as well as stylish, the chest pockets are surprisingly deep, especially considering their understated appearance – so you won’t be short of storage space. Leather edging around the cuffs and hood have great functional application (as well as aesthetic!), and allow the fabric to avoid chafing and remain comfortable against skin when wet. The Greenland No. 1 Special Edition’s double fastening closure with both zip and buttons also create an effective
wind barrier, perfect for unpredictable UK summers!

In addition, 5 Euro from the sale of every jacket is contributed to the SEFALO Arctic Fox project, working to reverse the decline and threatened extinction of the Arctic Fox in Sweden and Norway.

We hope you love it as much as we do – available to buy online now at the Sporting Lodge in four fantastic colours!

Fjallraven Greenland Wax – Waxing Lyrical..

Every so often, you come across an item that you just can’t do without. As a keen outdoors person I spend most of my free time and work time in the great outdoors – and all weathers offer oportunities to test the products we sell.

Fjallraven clothing is fast becoming a must have brand when stepping outside to work or play. Fjallraven’s G-1000 material (a unique blend of polyester and cotton) works well in all weathers and terrains, and can simultaneously withstand the rigours of thousands of washing machine cycles.

While Fjallraven G-1000 fabric is a workhorse, it’s not water resistant – and this is where Greenland Wax comes in! When you apply Greenland Wax, an eco-friendly mix of paraffin and beeswax, the material performs even better, capable of repelling water even in the heaviest of downpours. Forget sticky, smelly wax – this stuff is clean and easily applied in a matter of minutes, using an iron or hairdryer.

We’ve been using Fjallraven Greenland wax for many years, and in short, it works! Fjallraven have also introduced the Greenland Wax in a handy drawstring bag for Summer 2013, ideal for a rucksack or jacket pocket. And don’t forget, Fjallraven Greenland Wax isn’t limited to Fjallraven products – it works well on ventile, canvas, or any cotton based material. If you have a pair on Converse shoes, try it out for fantastic results!

Happy waxing and keep dry!
