DescriptionFjällräven Övik Eco-Shell Parka W. (big in sizing!)
Long three-layer shell jacket for everyday life in changing weather conditions. Made from stretchy Eco-Shell that stops the wind and rain while it wicks away body moisture. Eco-Shell also meets high standards of sustainability; it is recyclable with outer fabric made from recycled polyester and fluorocarbon free impregnation.
The cut is feminine with ample length to keep the warmth on body and thighs. There is a fixed, adjustable hood with laminated screen that keep moisture away from your face. Two zippered handwarmer pockets are conveniently placed in the breast seam and further down are a couple of spacious top loading pockets with flaps and zippers. Inside, there is an additional small zippered pocket for valuables.
The front zipper is a two-way zipper and can be used to vent excess heat, and it is covered by a protective flap with buttons at the collar, waist and hem. Another flap on the inside provides enhanced protection against the chilly winds sneaking in through the zipper. Drawstrings controls the width at the waist and hem. Cuffs with button adjustment.

Waterproof, breathable and sustainable
Eco-Shell is Fjällräven's own high-function shell material giving complete protection in wet-weather and tough conditions. At the same time, it also meets strict sustainability requirements because, in our opinion, you just can't compromise with the environment when you are out there in the wild seeking out magnificent experiences.
For that reason, Eco-Shell has an outer fabric made of recycled polyester which has been impregnated without using fluorocarbons (environmentally hazardous substances that spread further when you wash the garment and also when you wear it in the great outdoors). The membrane and inner fabric are made of polyester, making it easier to recycle when the time comes. In addition, the Eco-Shell garment is climate-compensated.
Highest functionality when it matters
The thing that makes Eco-Shell really interesting is that it has the same high technical performance as other advanced shell materials. The waterproof membrane keeps the wind, rain and sleet from penetrating inside and cooling you down, while also being breathable, wicking away any moisture to the outside.
The material is lightweight, doesn't rustle and allows free movement too. That makes Eco-Shell the perfect reinforcement layer in wet conditions, over a G-1000 jacket or trousers, a fleece or similar garment.
