Fjallraven Anorak No.8 - Dark Olive


Fjallraven Anorak No.8 - Dark Olive


Brand: Fjallraven
Weight: 1250 g         50 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.

  Great anorak and a first class service from Woodlore. I'm 6 foot 1 and 13.5 stone and usually take an extra large in jackets but after reading lots of reviews I went for a medium which fits perfectly. However if you want to put on lots of layers maybe a large would be better choice. Overall very pleased with service and jacket.

  Excellent. Keeps wind off around lower face with high collar up, and two good walks in rain have shown it has good waterproof level. Only grumble would be lack of zipped section in main pocket to keep things handy but prevent them falling out when taking off.

  Very high quality anorak, as expected from Fjallraven and at this price, with considerable adjustability throughout. Significantly oversized to provide lots of room for mid-layers - so order a size (or even two) smaller if you don't what it to be too roomy. I'm 5 ft 10 inches and pretty broad across the shoulders and I ended up with the XS which is still a good fit. I originally ordered a medium and it was like donning a marquee. The material is remarkably water resistant, especially when new (it comes partially waxed) and it's a good idea to keep at least the shoulders and hood waxed, but it's not 'waterproof' and it will eventually succumb in a downpour. In any wind, it's terrific and it feels like you are wearing your own mobile bivvy with the vast hood up. The extended rear is great to sit on. If you are very claustrophobic then it's possibly not for you as the hood is all encompassing and it can take some exiting if you don't fully unzip the sides. Those side zips are probably its weakest point as it is relatively easy to strain them getting in and out if they are still partially zipped up - so you need to be careful. It's not cheap - but the quality and functionality speaks for itself and there's really nothing else out there that is going to last as long and provide the same level of functionality.

  Arrived the following day, double packed. Used it a couple of times, out all day on the Axe Estuary birdwatching. Fabulous coat, very well designed, excellent pocket layout, no noise when you move in it, expensive, but you get what you pay for. Looking forward to years of use from it.

  Large enough to take additional warm layers underneath - excellent build quality and well thought out details from Fjallraven - very versatile with multiple configuration options.

  Very pleased with the service from Woodlore, prompt delivery and efficient service returning the larger size that had been previously ordered. Excellent anorak, I cannot fault it. Be very wary of the sizing though, I have a Keb jacket that is a large and is a great fit with room for a fleece underneath. I had read some reviews that suggested the Anorak No 8 is very generous in its sizing so I initially ordered a medium and a large. They were huge; so I ordered a small and it is perfect for wearing on its own or with a couple (even three) layers underneath. Out of interest, the across chest measurement at the armpits on the Keb is 58cm (it has a bit of stretch out to 60cm); the same measurement on the Anorak No 8 is 62cm.

  I'm 6 foot 5 inches with a 44 inch chest and 35 inch waist. I'm normally an X-Large but ordered a large and found it to be a perfect fit. Plenty of room inside it for 2 or 3 thick layers. I was worried about the size Large as I have long arms but all good. Watching this item for months so this is great price and fast delivery. Now the tricky part, getting out for a good hike in the woods with all these covid restrictions!! Stay safe everyone.
