Weather protection–nothing more, nothing less. This is the promise of the new Fjorgyn Anorak from Swedish company Klättermusen. With just the bare necessities in terms of feature set, this waterproof jacket is easy to bring pretty much everywhere for when the weather turns foul.
To design the anorak, Klättermusen sought inspiration from the apparel worn by Sweden’s indigenous population–the Sami. Modeled after the colorful kolt, the Fjorgyn Anorak uses a simple drawstring at the hip to direct water away from your legs, much like how the belt works on the traditional garment.
The anorak is made from a 48 gram per square-meter, 2.5-layer, semi-transparent fabric that features a carbon print on the inside to protect the membrane, yet feels incredibly soft against your skin. The water-repellent finish on the face fabric is fluorocarbon free–the Fjorgyn Anorak’s fabric is fully Bluesign approved.
Other features are kept to a minimum, with basic adjustments to create a snug fit. The two way adjustable hood uses lightweight drawstring buckles to cinch tight around your face and a neoprene brim protects your face from rain.
Simple bungee clasps on the neck and cuffs enable easy on and off and the ability to play with the amount of ventilation. The single zippered pocket in the front doubles as a self-stowing pocket for when the jacket is not in use. Front and rear reflectors add low light visibility.
The Klättermusen Fjorgyn Anorak will retail for 350 euro and start shipping in September.
