The Iconic Expedition Down Jacket becomes a series


It was on a severely cold night in the early 70’s, on the barren plateau of Abisko in Sweden’s far north that Åke Nordin, founder of Fjällräven, decided that he never wanted to feel cold again. As a result, he created the remarkably insulating Expedition Down Jacket.

Today, we launch a new series of functional winter jackets that are direct descendants of the legendary jacket from ‘74. Staying true to the original design principles, using sustainable materials and with the same clear purpose of keeping you warm on all your winter adventures. Nature is Waiting.

We want to see your Expedition Down Jacket in action on Instagram.

for the chance to win a guided experience for two, next winter in northern Sweden. You and a guest will learn how to survive – and thrive – in the cold. Terms and conditions apply.

Heritage meets Sustainability
Development of the new Expedition Series is grounded in the proven functionality of the original jacket from 1974. Shell material and inner lining in the new series are made of 100% recycled nylon.


The insulating down we use today is guaranteed to be 100% traceable, ethically produced and of the highest quality. Using thoughtful Swedish design and construction make it easier to repair each garment, if needed.
