The Fjallraven Forest Fleece Jacket is a robust mid-layer garment made from recycled polyester, with reinforcements in durable G-1000. It makes an excellent insulating mid layer on colder days in the forest, but can also be worn as a light jacket when the temperature rises.

Made from soft, insulating fleece, this jacket features G-1000 reinforcements on the shoulders, along the zipper and at the pocket openings, where durability is needed most. A high collar provides warmth around the neck, while a soft patch of fleece behind the zipper provides protection for your chin. The full-length, two-way zipper can be opened from either end for better ventilation.

The Forest Fleece Jacket features two spacious hand pockets with zip closures and ventilating mesh lining. Elasticated cuffs and a drawcord adjustment at the lower hem help to create a snug fit and keep out draughts.

This fleece is manufactured using an environmentally-friendly process that both spins and dyes the fibres at the same time, which for this model involves approximately 50% less water and 32% less energy being used than with traditionally manufactured fleece.

  I needed another technical fleece/mid-layer like I needed a hole in the head but this looked smart and I love Fjallraven products. I've had the No.6 Down Vest for years and Anorak No.8 to name a couple of products and they are that well made these products will last years. This fleece is of similar quality, very warm and the Medium is a perfect fit as I'm slightly thin. The durable G-1000 panels on the shoulders provide a nice contrast and should reduce rubbing from a rucksack. The thick high collar ensures you won't catch a draft. As much as I like it I can't really wear it at the moment as it warms you up too quickly. Again this isn't cheap but should you look after it this will potentially last years, maybe even decades. And yet again this website is usually cheaper than anywhere else and the delivery was impeccable. Would definitely recommend.

  Fjallraven garments are difficult to beat when it comes to quality, I had been looking online at this fleece for some time as a mid layer under my parka on really cold days. Woodlore managed to shave £50 off the Fjallraven list price so thanks to Woodlore I feel I have a bargain. The fleece is everything I thought and hoped it would be, a good warm comfortable fit, feels good, looks good and just the job to wear for a brisk walk on a chilly autumn day along the beach.

  The only negative point is I wish this jacket had shock cord at the bottom, other than that there is nothing wrong with it and I am happy with it.

  Lovely thick warm fleece, feels excellent quality should last for years would have liked a draw cord on bottom to adjust tension rather than just elastic but I am sure it will last.

  I love the colour; just right for quiet, unseen walks in the wood. Pretty windproof and nice and cozy with the high collar. The G1000 fabric across the shoulders is a good feature to reduce wear from rucksack straps; if you wax it as well a degree of water resistance can be added to help shrug off the odd shower.

  The Fjallraven Forest Fleece Jacket really is a fantastic jacket. I'm chuffed with it in every way possible; it's silent when moving through dense woodland, it works perfectly as a mid-layer garment under a waterproof outer-layer, or on its own in when it's not wet. I bought it in November 2015 and have been wearing it with a layer or two of Woolpower 200 g or 400 g underneath and it's kept me really toasty. All in all, a great jacket that has already become a firm favourite. Highly recommended and another trusty item offered in the Woodlore shop.
