Long before the hike, you should check your equipment, try everything practically and test to pack your backpack. Read on for a list of what we usually take with us on Fjällräven Classic.
Usually, a pack between 65 and 75 litres is big enough if there are two of you sharing a tent and camping stove. The list below is based on a five-day trek in the summer.
Our popular backpack Kajka gives you stability during the trek. The backpack is available in five different sizes and can also be found in models specially adapted for women. If you want a lighter backpack our Abisko is a good option.
• A sleeping bag which will keep you warm down to -5 degrees C.
• A sleeping mat (with repair kit if inflatable).
• A tent for two people, or maybe your friend takes the tent and you take the camping stove.
Abisko view 2 is a lightweight, self-supporting tent that is ideal for warmer seasons. Singi Three Seasons is a warm down sleeping bag, available in two sizes depending on your length. It is also available in models that support lower temperature limits, specially adapted for women.
• A camping stove and cooking pots. Fuel. Matches or lighter and a sponge to do the dishes with. We recommend gas. You can replenish your fuel supplies at Checkpoint Sälka and Checkpoint Alesjaure.
• A bowl, mug and two spoons (one in reserve)
• A small, lightweight water bottle, approx. 0.5 litre.
• Snacks, extra energy, coffee/tea
The stove can be shared between several people. We recommend Express Stove Set (easily big enough for two people).
• Small knife and scissors
• Toilet bag with the most necessary items (toothbrush, toothpaste and soap + personal favourites)
• Small towel
• Little LED-headlamp with new batteries
• First aid kit with at least elastic bandage, blister pads, compresses and tape. It is recommended to complement the mandatory first aid kit with safety pins, butterfly stitches (skin closures), fluid replacement and pain reliever.
• One set of long underwear
• Three pairs of socks
• One/two pairs of underpants
• Sandals or sports shoes (for the evenings)
• Warm hat and gloves (hat without pompom, so you can sleep with it on.)
• Cap or sunhat
• Rain clothes; rain jacket/shell jacket with hood and rain trousers. (Eco-Shell membrane products work well)
• Warm fleece top, or a warm top made with down or synthetic filling. If you know you have a tendency to get cold, take an extra layer with you. These items can be used as a pillow when you sleep.
• A rain cover for your pack
Wear underpants, hiking trousers (zip-off trousers are great with removable legs), top or shirt, socks and hiking boots. If it is cold but clear put on a warm fleece. If it is windy, put your shell jacket on. If it is both cold and windy/wet put in both your warm layer and your rain/shell jacket and trousers.
