It was a Scandinavian climbing expedition to Greenland in 1966 that symbolized the need of the 1960s for functional and durable outdoor clothing. Based on of the feedback of the expedition alpinist’s, the first Fjällräven jacket saw the light of the day.
The Greenland Jacket was launched in 1968. It had been developed in close cooperation with members of the Greenland expedition, and immediately became very sought after in climbing circles. It did not take long before a wider range of outdoor enthusiasts discovered the practical jacket, and over the years the Greenland Jacket has become one of Fjällräven’s signature garments. One of the reasons behind its popularity is its functional and adaptable G-1000 fabric, which was launched at the same time as the jacket.
Today, the Greenland family consists of a number of products that are all made in G-1000, all with details and characteristics from the original model of 1968.
