Fjallraven Smock No.1 - Dark Olive


Fjallraven Smock No.1 - Dark Olive


Brand: Fjallraven
Weight: 1160 g         7 reviews
The Fjallraven Smock No.1 is a technical and premium-quality coat, 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 organic cotton and recycled polyester, the anorak is wind- and water-resistant, with extra strong reinforcements at the shoulders, sleeves and pockets. As part of Fjallraven's Numbers range, the Smock No.1 symbolises uncompromised design and quality with many generous pockets that easily have room for the contents of a small backpack.

Constructed with a full-length two-way zipper with protective flap and spacious adjustable hood, this anorak gives effective and reliable protection from the elements. The hood itself can be adjusted so it fits the head perfectly and the visor can be folded to either provide maximum wind protection or more peripheral vision. When not in use, the hood forms a high collar, which protects and warms the neck.

The Smock No.1 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 pockets. 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.

Just like the Jacket No. 68, it is designed for advanced outdoor life all year around, but the Smock No. 1 has a longer cut and a greater number of even more robust functions. Maps, first aid kits, smaller tools and other items needed for a day out in the forest can be stowed in the many spacious pockets on the chest, lower down, on the back and sleeves.

The front zipper is two-way and has a protective flap and easy-grip buttons that are fastened to the garment with corded ribbon. This smock also features a drawcord adjustment at the waist, an extra gusset under the arms and pre-shaped sleeves for freedom of movement. The Smock No.1 is a particularly spacious fit, so please bear this in mind when ordering.

  This is a very versatile garment. It is expensive, however Woodlore have it at the best price point around at the time of purchase for me. It looks as good around town as it does in field and forest. The plentiful pockets are huge, hard-wearing and very accessible. The zippers all move smoothly, the buttons are easy to manipulate, even with gloves on, and the windproof qualities of the G1000 material are very welcome. It does need some proofing to keep the worst of the rain out, but cavernous hood and efficient drawstrings make this smock my go-to outdoor layer.

  Great jacket for layering through the seasons. The reason I purchased this jacket was to have an alternative to the Anorak 8, (also a great piece). I wanted an every day jacket that has flexibility, with options for layering over different garments for cooler/warmer weather, and being able to easily adjust for temperature changes with those layers. This is perfect for that. Pockets are important to me and this jacket has many: The number of pockets allow for so many options, and the hood as well. This is my favorite style of hood by Fjallraven. Great for wind and sun protection. Cozy over a wool watch cap. Highly adjustable for different conditions. The neck protection when the hood is not up is also a great feature. A thin scarf kept in one of the many roomy pockets can add a lot to your comfort for when the temp drops. One of the benefits to the many pockets in the jacket. A lot of lightweight and useful kit can fit in the pockets. Paired with a wool shirt or liner and a vest makes for comfort in different temps. There’s a lot of physical room for layering, which makes this a very useful garment. I like the look of this jacket as well as its functionality. Draw string adjustments make for a good fitting. I like the idea that I can carry a small sling pouch for water bottle and heavier, small kit that I don’t want in the pockets, and put all the light stuff in the pockets, for every day use, saving precious space in the small bag. I can also go out with this jacket with no bag, if I chose, for shorter outings. Plenty of room for a small water flask and pocket Bushcraft stove, fire starter, maps, bandana, gloves, knitted cap, and so many other things to accommodate different needs. Even though this is considered a mens jacket, I think it’s great for women too. I am a female, and have tried other mens jackets from Fjallraven that were beautiful, but didn’t accommodate the hips well. The drawstring at the waist seems to sit at a place that makes this work nicely for female torso. It doesn’t sit too low. (Medium-tall female) The flared out bottom accommodates the wider female hips as well, not binding at the hips while also being appropriately sized at the top. I’m so happy to find this jacket at Ray Mears site. I feel this is a fabulous jacket to keep lots of small kit organized and easily available. I’m familiar with Fjallraven quality, and this jacket meets the mark for me. Along with its great functionality, I think it also looks good, which is an added bonus. I would be comfortable wearing this in an urban environment as much as camping out in the bush. Great travel jacket. It’s made for adventure!

  As usual, Woodlore delivered the Smock very promptly. Unfortunately I soon discovered a fault in the construction. A few days later, after several email messages and telephone conversations, the replacement was in my hands, and appeared to be faultless. Since then I have taken opportunities to wear it on several walks, including locations in the Scottish Highlands in the second week of October. The Smock is similar in several respects to the Anorak no.8, also by Fjallraven. The materials are essentially the same, and the hood adjustment is very similar. The hood offers a great deal of room and is very comfortable in use. The difference between the Smock and the Anorak is essentially that the former has many more pockets and is relatively easy to don and to remove. The Smock has a good quality zip running down the chest. The closure is protected with flaps and buttons. At first the zip was difficult to operate. I cured that problem by rubbing its teeth with a bar of Greenland wax. The Anorak, of course, has no front opening. Unlike the Anorak, the Smock does not have a crotch strap. It is possible that the Anorak provides better protection from wind and rain in severe conditions. However in warmer conditions the Smock has the advantage of being much easier than the Anorak to ventilate, just by opening the front zip. The buttons on six of the Smock's pockets are secured with tape instead of thread. This may enable them to stand more opening and closing operations than would otherwise be the case. There are four additional pockets which have zip closure. Whilst in the Highlands the toughest test for the Smock was, surprisingly enough, a trip to the Highland Wildlife Park. We were there from 10.30am until nearly 5pm, and there were strong winds and persistent rain for most of that time. Some dampness appeared inside the hood, next to the seam in the crown. Despite the fact that my boots were letting water in by the end of the day, the clothing underneath the Smock was still dry, and I was basically warm. I did not need a rucksack as the pockets sufficed for everything I wanted to carry. I was happy wearing the Smock on all the Highland outings on foot, both with and without a rucksack, and never felt that I should have been wearing the Anorak instead.

  Yes, it is expensive - certainly the most I have ever paid for a jacket - but what you get is a superbly functional and beautifully made garment that will undoubtedly stand the test of time in the woods and in the wider outdoors. Everything about it has been carefully thought through, from the little pockets on the sleeves to the strategic use of heavier weight fabric on the shoulders. It is generously sized to accommodate a number of layers underneath and yet still does not feel huge or voluminous when just in a shirt. The pockets are numerous and large enough to hold pretty much all you might want on a long day or lightweight overnight trip; the video made by Fjallraven gives you some idea about how much 'stuff' you can store in it, though I reckon it might compromise your freedom of movement a bit! In use, the fabric cuts the wind really well and, fresh on, will turn a shower effectively. To increase/improve its water repellence, one can obviously use the Greenland wax; for more temperate use, washing the jacket will take out the wax and make it more 'breathable'. Although still relatively new, I have used it a lot and will continue to do so, in all weathers and seasons. In short, this is a superbly versatile, well-made jacket which I can fully and unreservedly recommend. As ever, Woodlore provided exemplary service!

  Amazing quality. Zips, buttons, pockets, draw cords the lot. The thicker material is placed in the right place for hard use. The sewing throughout the jacket is flawless apart from around button holes but this is minor and easily fixed with a flick of a lighter. The hood is awesome and can be adjusted in many ways. Oh and if you forget your shopping bag and if you’ve got it on watch the bystanders, as it all disappears into your pockets! Massive thumbs up. Worth the price tag! ??

  I thought long and hard about whether I would make this purchase or not given the price of the jacket, the YouTube video started my juices flowing as it is exactly the sort of jacket I had been looking for. I am so glad I took the plunge as it is an absolute classic. The smock is truly built to last and is in a fantastic shade of olive colour. The item is reinforced in all the right places to minimise prevent wear and tear and has oodles of pocket space for any combination of a smock coat load out. The amount the jacket can carry is formidable. The jacket is sized to allow for ample insulative layers so bear this in mind if you order. The jacket is not waterproof and despite my having used tons of Greenland wax on other same material construction Fjallraven clothing items I have yet to find waxing the item makes them other than light shower proof. What I have discovered is Fabsil Gold (a tent proofing silicon liquid) which when applied to your G1000 clothing makes them totally waterproof if applied correctly, my Anorak no.8 was treated previously with fantastic results and this Smock no.1 will be on my list too. This saves on having an additional waterproofing layer in addition to this smock. I could not be happier with this coat and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone in a position to purchase it.
