Rugged coastlines and languages with more accents than letters get your blood pumping. While the Fjallraven Women's Sarek Trekking Jacket won't help you translate, it will keep you dry and comfortable as you make your way up and across the Romsdalseggen Ridge in the northern part of Fjord Norway. Made from the original G 1000 poly cotton fabric, the Sarek stands up to your schlepping without showing wear and tear. Shaped in a traditional, longer cut, this jacket skims the bottom of your bum and covers your chin when fully zipped. The hood has 3 way adjustments to give your melon perfectly fitting weather protection regardless of your headwear accessories, cowboy hats excluded. The zipper goes from top the bottom, and the snap placket on top ensures neither wind nor rain creep in. Hook and loop cuff adjustments let your sleeves hang loose or stay snug against your wrists when the breeze is less than balmy. Draw in the waist and cinch the hem tight when the wind picks up. Two zipped chest pockets play nice with your pack straps, and the hand pockets work well even when you have a backpack hip belt on. After several years and numerous trips, if the Sarek starts to sag, grab a bar of Greenwax, and just rub in, heat up, and you've got a jacket with a renewed sense of purpose.
