(Boulder, CO) August 6, 2014— In Spring-Summer 2015, heritage outdoor brand Fjällräven will expand its technical outdoor collection with lightweight outerwear and apparel.

PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS — OUTERWEAR

Since the launch of its first outerwear silhouette, the Greenland Jacket, in the 1960s, Fjällräven remains rooted in technical jacket design. Each season the brand innovates the category with fresh materials and a modern take on classic silhouettes. In Spring 2015, Fjällräven will launch several new jacket designs, including a new hybrid material shell, the Abisko Lite Jacket, as well as a revival of popular heritage silhouette, the Räven Jacket.

Abisko Lite Jacket, $250.00

Built for warm weather trekking, the Abisko Lite Jacket combines waxed G-1000® Lite and stretch fabrications in a lightweight soft-shell that provides durability and wind protection, while offering freedom of movement. The jacket features a fixed, adjustable hood and a two-way front zipper with press button closure at the bottom of the internal flap. Additional features include: Velcro adjustments at the sleeve cuffs and two, large zippered chest pockets with a stretch fabric lining that can expand to fit essentials. The Abisko Lite Jacket is offered in four colors: Dark Grey, Cork, Lake Blue and Dark Olive.
