Fjällräven Keb Loft Jacket appeared on the market in August 2014 and looks to have hade some nice feedback since then. It’s a good looking jacket but the color choices are slim as it only comes in autumn leaf (below), black, tarmac and the classic, uncle blue.
According to Fjällräven this is a light and convienient reinforcement jacket with warm synthetic padding. It has got a two-way zipper, hand pockets and mesh pockets inside.

If I compare this jacket to my Patagonia Nano Puff jacket I’d say that they’re very similar in both functionality and specs. My Nano Puff weighs in at about 345 grams in size small so the Fjällräven jacket should be a little lighter than the Nano Puff as the weight in the specifications above is for a size medium.
I’m not really looking to replace my Nano Puff even though I’ve had it since 2011 and used it on a daily basis and for many trips it looks very good and has held up really well. I’ve only gotten a rip or two in it, one happened when I accidentally managed to get the fabric stuck in my front zipper and pulled on it, which was a bit odd. But if I were to replace it in the future I guess this jacket from Fjällräven would be a good option. Fjällräven garments are really good and made out of supreme materials to keep them lasting for many, many years.
So if you’re in the market for a lightweight non-down-jacket this might be a good option for you.
G-Loft Supreme is Fjällräven’s new synthetic padding which should perform very good even in wet conditions. The material was developed exclusively for Fjällräven.
I’m not sponsored in any way by Fjällräven nor have I gotten a compensation to put this on my blog.
