If you’re looking for the number one down parka to wear this winter then look no further because we’ve found the number one jacket, literally. Making up a vital part of Fjallraven’s top tier, super special, highly desirable Numbers range the Number One Expedition Down Parka certainly lives up to its numerical name.
Constructed from Fjallraven’s partially recycled, hard wearing G-1000 Eco fabric with G-1000 HeavyDuty Eco reinforcements on the shoulders, sleeves, lower back and pockets for increased durability. Providing an extremely high level of insulation and warmth when and where needed most the parka also features hand warming pockets with the inside of the collar being lined with warm wool from the legendary Abraham Moon cloth mill.
Especially designed for the extreme cold and high pressure conditions of the unforgiving arctic the Number one is designed to cover the top of the legs and features braces which keep the jacket secure, even when removing the sleeves. It can also be opened and closed with ease using a two way zipper concealed behind a button closed storm flap.
Whilst other notable features on this ultimate down parka include; A large protective hood with removable synthetic fur detail, seven large pockets with space for GPS, ski goggles, extra gloves, kendal mint-cake, Marlborough lights and other essential equipment, adjustable velcro cuffs, a drawstring hem and a drawstring waist.
Something of an investment piece, this parka ticks a hell of a lot of technical boxes not to mention some taking you straight to the top of the suave Swedish smother garms. Whether we get a beast from the East, a pest from the west, a nause from the North or a big mouth from the south this winter, the Fjallraven Expedition Down Parka will see them all off whilst keeping you lovely and warm
