    The North Face Men’s Evolution II Triclimate winter jacket review

    Tested in Norway: the North Face Men’s Evolution II Triclimate winter jacket As always, prior to going on a new adventure, I take a long hard look at my hiking gear. Is there something missing? Are any of the items torn or broken? Due to the fact that the soon to be explored area will be pretty unforgiving, I double check my equipment and I realize that my current jacket is not up to the task anymore. The (summer) temperatures in this area vary between -5 and +25 degrees. Welcome to the Dovrefjell, Norway. So time to go and find a new jacket. My preferences? First of all it has…

Eco Shell is by Fjällräven itself developed…

It’s a lightweight one from Patagonia that I once bought on sale at REI in Alaska. I borrowed it to a friend last summer and received it back as well, but I just have no idea where I put it… I looked everywhere but since our house is one big outdoor factory it seems, I just had no idea where it could have disappeared to. Right at that moment, The North Face asked…

    Outdoor product review: Fjällräven Eco-Trail Jacket

    Whenever I go outdoors for a longer period of time I used to bring two jackets: one softshell that’s perfect for outdoor activities and one rain jacket in case the weather would turn nasty. After having done this for several years, I got tired of always carrying two jackets “just in case the weather would change”.  Recently I got the chance to try the  Fjällräven Eco-Trail jacket during one of my trips. The reason why I chose this jacket is because it’s wind- and waterproof, and because it’s lightweight. When trekking a lot, lightweight is of the biggest importance. At the beginning of my trekking carreer I always carried way…
