The Jerven Bag Original is a windproof, waterproof and versatile shelter for hunters, nature watchers and photographers. Primarily designed as a protective poncho for use when hunting, the Jerven Bag is equally suited as a windsack when sitting outdoors, a rain cover for you and your rucksack when hiking, an emergency tarp-style shelter, or a sleeping bag cover. Its versatility and thoughtful design are just two of the reasons why Ray Mears has become a fan of the Jerven Bag.
Jerven have produced a number of different models of their Jerven Bag or 'Fjellduken' as it is known locally, including the Hunter, Extreme and King Size. This, the Original Jerven Bag, is the lightest of all four models thanks to its single layer design. At only 650 g, the Original Jerven Bag is best suited for the small game hunter, fisherman, hiker or outdoorsman who needs protection from the elements without being weighed down. The wind and waterproof outer is adorned with a complex mountain camouflage pattern, helping the wearer to blend in with a variety of environments while keeping them protected from the elements.
The Jerven Bag features zips around three edges, allowing you to adjust its shape as per the desired usage. Made from polyester, it features an aluminium coating which helps to reflect body heat back to the wearer, much in the same way as a survival bag works. A pair of 3/4 length sleeves are included, which can be attached or detached as you wish.
For over 30 years, Jerven AS have supplied their specially created Fjellduken protective tarp to the Norwegian Armed Forces. In 2004 alone, Jerven delivered around 7,000 Jerven Bags to various Norwegian military divisions, and now also supply French, Danish, Swiss and British special forces.
