Scandinavian Explorer modells range from fleece, to softshell, to down vests, jackets and coats. Depending on temperature and conditions, all modells are perfect mid or top layers.  


Scandinavian Explorer fleeces are made from 100% recycled polyester and their 2 layer fabric system make them a great choice for dry days with cooler temperatures. Chose the matching down jacket on top and get full protection from winds and colder temperatures. 


With their HI-POWER AQUATECH technology, softshell jackets from Scandinavian Explorer are guaranteed to be waterproof, windproof and breathable for casual wear and outdoor activities. 


Down jackets are filled with 80% down and 20% feather for additional warmth.  The warmth of a down jacket depends on the down weight. Sandinavian Explorer down jackets and coats come in different weights. The lighter version, a 120g down jacket, is the perfect top layer for colder spring or autumn days. During winter we recomment wearing it as a mid-layer with good wool layers underneath and a thicker jacket on top. The winter jacket modell is a 500g that will keep you comfortable during winter adventures. Winter down coats are 960g in weight and will give you extra comfort around the hips and upper legs.

Down jackets from Scandinavian Explorer are water resistent, not waterproof. Make sure to dry your down jacket properly in case it gets wet, otherwise the feathers will clump and mold might build.  Take good care of your down jacket and you will have a loyal companion on any kind of adventure.
