Greenland Half Century Jacket
MOTIATION FROM THE JURY
The original Fjällräven Greenland Jacket was introduced fifty years ago and changed the market for outdoor garments. It was built out of a polyester cotton blend named G-1000 that was not only quick drying and long lasting but could be made highly water repellent using Greenland wax – a big step forward compared to the cotton fabrics normally found back then. For the new Greenland Half Century Jacket Fjällräven uses G-1000 Eco, consisting of recycled polyester and organic cotton. The jury raved about the outstanding design combining modern lines with traditional elements. It has the potential to become a new all-time classic. In combination with the functional features, Fjällräven created a garment which will please the user in outdoor environments as well as in urban settings.
PRIMARY INNOVATION FEATURES
After a lifetime in nature, Fjällräven’s classic Greenland look is being updated for a new generation. With taped seams and durable, nature-friendly G-1000 Eco, Fjällräven’s new Greenland Half Century Jacketsuccessfully combines heritage with innovation.
INTENDED SPECIFIC END USE
Developed for the trail as well as for an everyday outdoor lifestyle. The jacket is designed to last for a long time and colours are chosen to look great even when wornout as well as with a bit of mudd on.
The Greenland Half Century jacket is based on Fjällräven’s very first jacket. The fit has been optimised with modern pattern making and the jacket is kept light and smooth thanks to taped seems.
