Fjallraven Keb Loft Jacket Review

By Phil on 2014.10.22 In Product Review

I recently returned from the Toubkal Two Valley trek in Morocco, where the provided kit list specified a down jacket for cold nights while up in the Toubkal Mountains. As I didn’t own a down jacket I decided to purchase the Fjällräven Keb Loft jacket and this is my review.

F81386-550_0

The Fjällräven Keb Loft is made with Fjällräven’s new G-Loft Supreme synthetic padding with exceptionally high insulating properties.

When I first received the jacket I was very impressed with how light it was. The jacket has two large inside mesh pockets which I found useful for storing hat and gloves if required. There are also two outside hip zipped pockets with a reinforced hem. The front opening has both zip and button fastenings for extra protection along with reinforced hem.

The jacket compresses down to a very small size and I was able to store it in a small drag bag while carrying in my rucksack. I was also pleased with how the jacket kept its shape despite being stored in a small dry bag for some time. The adjustable drawcord at the hem of the jacket was useful when tightened to keep out any draft caused by the wind as well as the elasticated cuffs.

I used my Keb Loft on most nights while in the Toubkal Mountains and wore it over the top of my Keb Fleece jacket at all times and was amazed with how quickly my body warmed up with this jacket on. I bought the jacket in the same size I do for all my Fjällräven upper body products and was the perfect size to fit over my Keb Fleece jacket and other layers I was wearing on the evening.

Luckily it never rained during my recent trek, so never got test the quick drying properties of the jacket, though I’m sure that will come in time due to the unpredictable weather here in the UK.

I would thoroughly recommend the Fjällräven Keb Loft jacket and look forward to using it a lot more on the hills in the coming winter months.

Technical specification:

  • SKU: F81386
  • Concept: Trekking
  • Weight (FJR): 350 g in size M
  • Consumer Material: G-Loft Supreme
  • Outer material: G-1000® Lite: 65% polyester, 35% cotton
  • Lining: 100% polyester
  • Filling: 100% polyester
  • I wonder if my use of the jacket is the highest altitude a Fjällräven Keb Loft has been used, as Toubkal stands at 4167 metres high. Anyone used one any higher? :)

Welcome

Welcome to my blog about hiking, trekking, Fjällräven Polar 2014, in fact anything where you require boots and the outdoors.

My name is Phil, and following my outdoor epiphany which started in the summer of 2012 I’m now hooked on everything outdoors. So far my biggest treks have included the 250km Cathar Way, the 170km Tour du Mont Blanc and best of all, winning 1st place to take part in the Fjällräven Polar in April 2014.

I plan to use this blog to write about all my adventures, which will include my personal goal of becoming a Munroist (completing all 282 Scottish Munro mountains), summer treks, weekends in the Lakes and many more.

I like to try and make my blog posts humorous so I hope you enjoy reading and that I can put a smile on people’s faces while showing you some amazing places.

If you have any questions about the blog or the places I'm writing about, don't hesitate to contact me on: phil@philyourboots.com
