Fjallraven Anorak No.8 - Dark Olive

Brand: Fjallraven
Weight: 1250 g         18 reviews
The Fjallraven No. 8 Anorak is a technical and premium-quality anorak, created to withstand tough use in forest and mountain environments throughout the year, even in exposed conditions. Made from a tried-and-tested blend of cotton and polyester, the anorak is wind- and water-resistant, with extra strong reinforcements at the shoulders, sleeves and seat. As part of Fjallraven's Numbers range, the No. 8 Anorak symbolises uncompromised design and quality.

Constructed with a half-length zipper, extended back and large adjustable hood, this anorak gives effective and reliable protection from the elements. The hood itself can be adjusted to fit perfectly around the head, while the new peak construction gives the option to fold it back in two different positions, depending on whether the wearer wants to prioritise peripheral visibility or protection from the wind.

When not in use, the hood acts as a generous collar, which protects and warms the neck. In warmer weather the front zipper can be opened, and the inner collar unbuttoned and folded to the side to let out excess heat. Further ventilation is provided by two long zippers up the sides which can be opened to release excess heat; they also make getting in and out of the anorak easier.

The No. 8 Anorak has been made from G-1000 Eco, an environmentally-friendly blend of organic cotton and recycled polyester, with extra durable G-1000 Heavy Duty on the shoulders, arms and lengthened back section. The fabric and details were chosen to minimise their impact on the environment (utilising leftover strips of leather for example), while also making it easy to replace exposed sections after years of use.

The large kangaroo pocket on the front of the anorak can be accessed both from the top and the sides, and all pockets feature solid zipper closures hidden underneath protective storm flaps. The waist is adjustable via a drawstring at the back, while a second drawstring allows adjustment of the lower hem; the sleeve cuffs can be adjusted with buttons. The No.8 Anorak features a particularly spacious fit, so please bear this in mind when ordering.

Details:
  • An advanced anorak for demanding treks
  • Plenty of ventilation and practical pockets
  • Material: G-1000 Eco (65% recycled polyester, 35% organic cotton), with G-1000 Heavy Duty at reinforced areas

  I purchased this to compliment the Barents trousers I purchased last year as I really couldn't fault the G1000 fabric. I have got to say this is an investment and I am glad that I have. A superb anorak loaded with features that make this a truly versatile garment. I spent 3 days in Kielder Forest and we had rain, sunshine and gale force winds, none of these were an issue. The ability to use the vents to let off steam and then the high collar to batten down the hatches is a real asset. I only had a simple merino base layer on and when paired with the G1000 trousers you couldn't ask for better; absolutely bomb proof(although do expect some double denim comments from jealous companions). As ever Woodlore service is outstanding. If you want to invest in probably the last jacket/anorak you will need, look no further, truly legendary!

  The Fjallraven Anorak #8 is a serious item of clothing in the “Classic” style of hiking and climbing outerwear popular for over 100 years. The design based on Inuit and other northern people’s survival cultures is tried and true, and is a solid investment in day-to-day outdoor protection and comfort. LET’S TALK ABOUT SIZE: The Fjallraven Anorak #8 is cut so that it can be layered underneath and they are sewn BIG. CONSIDER ORDERING AT LEAST ONE SIZE DOWN FROM YOUR REGULAR SIZE. My actual measurements are 45” chest, 190 lbs, 5’9”, so at first I ordered an (XXL) following the size chart of 44”-47” in that category. This resulted in a fit that was too long and too wide in the body, and too long in the arms. I ended up returning it to Woodlore and reordering TWO SIZES DOWN to a (L) and that is a perfect fit. If I wanted an even trimmer look, I probably could have gone down to a (M). So a word to the wise--if you order in your regular size order according the Fjallraven chart--it may result in a garment that may be too big. FABRIC: Fjallraven‘s G-1000 regular weight is used throughout, with G-1000 heavy-duty fabric used to reinforce points of wear like the sleeves and bottom of the anorak. Unlike other “modern” fabrics, there is a “touch” of cotton in the mix, which gives the fabric a better feel. Resulting in the first anorak I have owned that actually feels like 100% natural fibers. In keeping with the classic design there is NO VELCRO anywhere. Closures are traditional buttons, snaps and high-quality zippers. Real leather is used for the zipper pulls. The look, feel, and fit, is simply FANTASTIC. FEATURES: The hood and neck closure flap is the real deal. There is more detail and fabric used just in that area alone than in entire jackets available elsewhere! Add an oversized kangaroo pocket (with smaller inner compartment) plus side zips for ventilation and you won’t miss “pit zips” at all. In a word this Fjallraven Anorak #8 is comfortably and consciously OVERBUILT. This results in an immense trust in a piece of clothing in that whatever you encounter you are going to be OK and then some. I BOUGHT THIS ANORAK BECAUSE: I live in a state in the USA with four seasonal changes that includes real winter. When I am home I fat bike and commute year round. When I am on the road I travel throughout the upper Midwestern United States and Canada, so I need a garment that is warm, adaptable, but also looks good. This Anorak SHOUTS quality (Made in Europe) and combined with attention grabbing vintage style, when not wearing it don’t let it out of your sight! ONE MORE THING: This Anorak is not available currently in North America in the popular colours and sizes. Ray Mears Bushcraft/Woodlore HAVE THEM IN STOCK AND provide great personalized service in sizing, returns, and product support. I trust Woodlore, and I would order from them again. Great work Fjallraven! Good Show/Service Ray Mears Bushcraft!

  Really enjoying the jacket. I got to try it out on a work trip to Atlin, BC last week. Around town it was comfortable, and kept the rain out. Hiked up Mt. Monarch and the vents kept me cool while climbing up, and the hood/collar blocked the wind on the summit. Pros: -Material -Length of jacket and sleeves -Ventilation Zips -Hood/Collar design Negatives: -Tight around the shoulders. Hopefully my thick wool anorak fits underneath... Dealing with Woodlore was great. Price (including shipping) was cheaper than local Canadian Fjallraven store, and none of the Fjallraven stores have these in stock.

  Excellent construction and attention to detail. It is a heavy jacket so really meant for cooler climates or as a 4 seasons jacket

  I knew what I was buying...an excellent product, and exactly what I wanted. I was pleasantly surprised at the equally excellent service; timely shipping and competitive pricing. I actually could not find this Anorak anywhere in North America. I am a very happy customer.

  I recieved my anorak no. 8 today. Initial thoughts is that this is a tough functional and quality jacket. I wish I had this when I was in the military. There are zippers so it can be well ventilated in warmer weather, the high collar keeps you warm but can also be opened for ventilation. It has double pockets up front, and a kangaroo pocket that can be accessed from the top and sides, they have pleanty of room to store gloves, phones etc. The hood is deep to keep the wind from getting in. This is a well thought out jacket which shows in the functionality and materials. Simplistic in design with great functionality. I am very happy with my purchase.

  Very good quality and seams to be very hard wearing. The hood definitely keeps the rain from you face. Fairly easy to apply the wax.

  This has been a versatile and indestructible piece of gear. It has performed well as a stand alone shell in a Pacific (US) Northwest rainstorm, and as an outer shell in both the snows of Colorado and the variable rain and high winds of November in Iceland. Rain beads up well, and once waxed just falls right off, and the anorak is wind proof. The side vents help regulate temperature well, and the hood - the hood! The hood creates a warm and dry cave-like environment for your head. The kangaroo pouch is huge (unlike so many other anoraks on the market), and the front pockets have a not-advertised-but-infinitely-useful cell phone pocket on the inner right side that lets you keep your car keys or cell phone in one place. This anorak performs outstandingly well as part of a layering system. Put it on over a shirt when it gets windy or rainy. Put it on over a wool sweater when you go snowshoeing, or over a base layer and a puffy when it gets very cold. You'll be dry, you'll be warm, and you can just roll it up and stick it in a messenger bag when the weather changes. Yes, it was expensive; yes, it is worth it.

  Well made, like the fit and features, roomy enough for layering with base and mid layers and feels very robust. Purchased for walking the dog in the hills around Galashiels in the Scottish Borders and I've already used it on a day with heavy rain showers with no rain penetration without adding any additional wax proofing yet. Has excellent venting via the side zips. Plenty of storage in the kangaroo pouch, including an internal pocket that takes an iPhone 6. Looking forward to trying it out in colder, more windy weather this winter. Well designed hood. Great price too.
