Description of Fjällräven Barents Parka 81335 - 555 - dark navy

Long, durable winter parka that keeps you warm down to mid-thigh. The perfect winter garment for changing weather conditions - the Hydratic membrane protects from moisture while the Supreme Microloft padding keeps you warm even in low temperatures. The outer fabric combination of G-1000 HeavyDuty and G-1000 Original means that this parka will be your durable companion for many years to come. The large hood has detachable synthetic fur trim for extra protection from the snow.

Many pockets provide practical storage, like the two vertical breast pockets for a map, telephone or bus card, and the bellow pockets at the hem with plenty of room for gloves and cold hands; plus one hidden Napoleon pocket and two inner pockets; drawcord at the waist and long, two-way zipper with protective flap and push buttons, velcro adjustments at the sleeve cuffs.

Fjällräven Barents Parka

With G-1000 you will be prepared for adventures in all climates, from the tropics to the polar caps. It can withstand many years of tough use far from the beaten path. The fact that G-1000 is adaptable makes it arguably one of the best outdoor fabrics on the market.

Many people pull on a waterproof, "technical" shell jacket without thinking. But people who have gone trekking or skiing in a taped, laminated garment have often discovered that it is too waterproof. The membrane cannot release the moisture your body creates when you are on the move and, as a result, you get sweaty.

This is why experienced outdoor enthusiasts have for decades instead chosen garments made from G-1000. They provide protection from both the wind and light rainfalls while at the same time releasing built-up moisture better, so you do not get wet from your own sweat. Compared to a membrane garment, G-1000 is also much more durable. It can withstand nature's sharper edges and even sparks from a fire. In the summer, G-1000 is always excellent choice, except on those occasional days when the rain just will not let up. On these days you will need to pull on an ultra-light rain garment for reinforcement. In the winter, G-1000 provides dependable protection from snow and hard winds, and its breathability decreases the risk that you will become chilled from wet underclothes. An added bonus is that it is light and comfortable to wear.

Windproof and waterproof clothing in Hydratic® wicks away perspiration, to reduce the risk you will become damp from your sweat, while still keeping out rain and moisture. Hydratic garments protect from the wind, water and snow at the same time as they release as much body steam as possible (a property that many refer to as "breathing"). Hydratic has small, microscopic pores that are thousands of times smaller than a drop of water but hundreds of times larger than steam, which means that it releases moisture. This is how Hydratic clothing is waterproof without you getting sweaty.

Waterproof: waterproofness is measured in water columns and the textiles are tested to determine how much pressure they can withstand before they start to leak. The higher the water column, the more pressure the fabric can withstand. A water column of 1,000 millimeters is technically considered to be waterproof, but this is not even close to sufficient for outdoor activities. Out in nature, pressure is often higher than that, for example when you are on your knees on wet ground. This is why Fjallraven developed Hydratic to withstand pressure of 10,000 - 20,000 millimetres. This means that you will stay dry during the most extreme and steady downpours. Regardless of whether you are walking, kneeling or sitting down.

Windproof: you have probably experienced the wind chill cooling phenomenon at some point. This is the shiver that runs through your body when the wind picks up. It is mainly common when you are in areas with extremely cold climates or high altitudes. To decrease the risk that you will become chilled, Hydratic helps keep the wind out, which would otherwise draw heat away from your body. Instead of turning back, you can continue on your adventure.

Ventilation ("breathability"): breathability is measured by the number of grams of water a square meter of fabric lets out in 24 hours. Hydratic releases between 8, 000 and 15, 000 grams. The higher the number, the more moisture that is let out. In order to release the largest amount of steam possible, you will find a number of smart functions in the Hydratic garments. For example, there are ventilation openings in the armpits, mesh pockets and a chimney collar.

Durable: in order to withstand active outdoor use, Hydratic garments go through the same difficult tests as the G-1000 fabric. In addition to test groups, Hydratic garments are tested for wear using the Martindale test. In this test, the material is rubbed in a test machine again and again at high pressure. This test continues uninterrupted for hours or, in the case of G-1000, days. Fjallraven record when the fabric finally tears and compare it to how many years of active use it corresponds to. Fjallraven are proud that Hydratic belongs to one of the outdoor world's more durable membranes.
