The Fjallraven Keb Touring Down Jacket is a light and compressible down jacket is designed to provide warmth and protection in cold and freezing conditions and works perfectly as an insulating layer as part of your overall layering system.

You can use it as a standalone jacket for cool dry conditions, layer it underneath shell jackets in extreme cold or chuck it over the top of everything to provide warmth on those exposed belays or when stopping for lunch on winter outings.

How you wear it will depend on what you’re doing, how much effort you’re putting in and of course what the weather conditions are.

What is the Keb Touring Down made from?

The outer fabric of the Keb Touring Down is from a 100% recycled polyamide, or Nylon to you and me, that has been treated with a Durable Water Repellent (DWR) to keep off light rain and snow. The same fabric is used on the inside, but without the DWR to maximise breathability. Fjallraven have doubled up this tough fabric on the shoulders and hood to add a bit more protection in these high wear areas.  Even though this fabric is weather resistant and windproof, it is not 100% waterproof, so always carry a shell jacket, because it will rain!

The stuff that’s keeping you warm inside this lovely jacket is some of the finest, and ethically sourced goose down with an 800-fill power. In fact, Fjallraven are so proud of how ethical their down is they’ve sewn a label to the inside telling you all about it and there’s even a leaflet in the pocket with the full story. All that lovely, ethical down is kept in place in stitch-through baffles to keep it close to your body to maximise performance.

What’s fill power? Well, for those who don’t know, it’s an internationally recognised measurement of how well down will “loft”. Loft describes how “fluffy” the insulation is, the “fluffier” down is the more space it can occupy and the more warm air it can trap in all those fine filaments. Down simply doesn’t work when compressed. The number used in Fill Power describes the amount of space one ounce of down will occupy in cubic inches when allowed to reach its maximum loft. So, in the case of the Fjallraven Keb Touring Down Jacket, one ounce of down will loft up to fill 800 cubic inches, or to put that in perspective, it’s equivalent to 13 litres, or the same as a Large Exped Fold Dry-Bag.

What are the main features

The first thing you notice when you put the Keb Touring on is just how incredibly comfortable it is. The fabric is soft and light, so it drapes beautifully, and you hardly know you’ve got it on.

Up at the top you get a fully insulated and adjustable hood. The drawcord adjuster is really clever; it runs through the brim and then behind your head so that when you tighten it up it cinches the hood really close to your head to keep in the warmth and seal out the drafts. It also means that when the main zipped is pulled right up you get fantastic protection for your face. The top section inside the zip is fleece lined to ensure comfort around your chin and mouth. Even with the hood down it shapes into a cosy collar, that can be made even more cosy by pulling the adjuster cord. This has got to be one of the best hood designs I’ve seen on a down jacket.

The main zip is a reliable two-way YKK reverse coil, backed up by an anti-snag draft strip. You’ll also notice that this draft strip features plastic press-studs. These enable you to undo the zip and then popper up the jacket to aid ventilation without losing core body warmth, or in the unlikely event of the zip failing, you can still keep the jacket wrapped around you. That’s a really reassuring feature if you’re doing some hard-core back-country ski touring or winter mountaineering.

Storage wise, you get two zipped hand pockets with a fleece liner to protect the back of your hand, and inside the right-hand pocket there’s a little zipped security pocket to keep things safe. There’s a zipped chest pocket that’ll swallow a GPS or large smartphone and inside you get two mesh dump pockets that are perfect for drinks bottles or bulky mitts/gloves. Inside the left-hand mesh dump pocket is a hidden Velcro closure pocket where you’ll find a repair kit, should you happen to accidentally snag the fabric when you’re out and about. So, all in all, there’s plenty of storage.

The sleeves are finished off with a neat elasticated trim to seal out the cold and the hem features a double sided elastic drawcord that’s easy to use when wearing gloves.

How does the Keb Touring Down Fit?

As an insulating piece it’s designed to fit closely to maximise the insulation. The last thing you want is a big baggy jacket as you’ll waste energy warming up all that dead air space, and conversely you don’t want it too tight either as that’ll hinder the downs ability to fully loft.  

The Fjallraven fit is spot on, there’s enough room for lightweight layers, yet it's not so big and baggy that you end up looking like a Michelin Man. However, if you were intending to use this as an over-layering/belay jacket I’d consider going a size bigger.

Where does the Keb Touring Down fit in the layering system?

The Keb Touring Down is a mid-weight, breathable and packable down jacket making it perfect as a hugely versatile and very warm insulating layer depending on your activity level and the weather conditions. It also works perfectly well as a stand-alone jacket on those crisp, dry, freezing days or as a warm everyday jacket.

Layering is not a precise science and there is no one perfect system that will suit every person, situation or the weather conditions. Some of us feel the cold, others, like me, get hot very quickly, but for more advice on using layers please check our YouTube video

So that’s it, the Fjallraven Keb Touring Down, an incredibly comfortable and luxurious, yet technical performer for cold conditions that fits superbly and is beautifully made with typical Fjallraven finishing touches.

Care & Advice

How to wash your down products

Having spent years talking to people about down products, whether that’s a jacket, sleeping bag or even a pair of slippers, very few have had the confidence to go ahead and wash the product on their own, especially when they have just spent an arm and a leg on it. This small guide is here to explain that it’s not as daunting and utterly terrifying as it first appears.

Step one: Before you even get near that washing machine, wipe off any excess mud or dirt that may be lingering on the surface of the jacket, as this will clog up the washing machine, eventually rendering it useless.

We recommend the use of Nikwax Down Wash Direct for down products as it’s one hundred percent environmentally friendly and will wash and re-proof the garment without the use of bleach or any other nasty chemicals. What household washing agents can (and often do) is remove the water repellent coating on the fabric of the jacket, whilst also damaging the delicate array of feathers inside.

Step two: We’ll assume in this instance that you’ve been washing other products prior to your down jacket and have used a bleach based detergent. Therefore it’s a good idea to run the washing machine for half an hour or so without anything inside to rinse it clean before adding the Nikwax or putting the jacket in. Also, don’t forget to remove the detergent drawer to give it a wash inside, outside and behind, as detergent can clog up and still enter the washing machine if not cleaned out thoroughly. This ensures that any remnants of detergent are removed and that the Nikwax products will work effectively.

Step three: Set the washing machine to a cold wash (check the garments care label, most tend to be around 30°C) and as delicate as possible. Most washing machines have a “wool” cycle which is ideal.

Step four: If using Nikwax Down Wash Direct, place 100ml in either the tray or directly into the washing machine inside a small pot/ball. If you choose to use another washing product, place the appropriate amount in the machine in the same way.

Step five: Set the washing machine to run on a slow cycle, allowing plenty of time for the jacket to soak up the cleaning/re-proofing product. Most washing machines will have a pre-set time for different washing cycles.

When the cycle has finished be prepared for a shock, your precious bit of kit will come out looking like a soggy ball of material. But don’t worry, you haven’t ruined it, it’s just that all that fluffy down insulation has become water logged and has clumped together. The trick is to now get all that down nice and dry to reinstate its superb insulating properties. Simply hanging it up in a warm place will not work that well. It will take days to properly dry and you will have to constantly break up the clumps to get it thoroughly dry. The best way is to use a tumble dryer; either a domestic one for smaller items or a commercial drier for sleeping bags.

Step six: Pop the garment into the dryer and make sure to select a low heat; a high heat runs the risk of melting seams and fabrics within the garment. It sounds weird, but shove a few tennis balls into the drier with the garment; the tennis balls will bounce around and help to break up the clumps of down. Every 20 minutes, pull the jacket out of the dryer and lie the jacket down on a table. Run your hands over the jacket until you find a 'clump' or ball of down; tease apart this down clump and spread it evenly into the baffle. Once you're confident you've pulled apart every clump to the best of your ability, stick it back in for another 20 minutes. Keep repeating this until there are no more clumps left. 

Step seven: When the cycle has finished and you are sure that you have got the garment as dry as possible, hang it up in a warm dry place, an airing cupboard is ideal, for 24 hours. This drives out the last of any dampness and allows the down to loft fully. Take it out and give it a good shake and, hey presto, it’ll be as good as new.

Fjallraven outerwear can vary in size depending on its function. Not sure what size you want? Please send an e-mail to support@trekitt.co.uk and we will go and measure the garment for you.

Slim Fit: Slim fitting, sitting close to the body, great for showing of your guns and pecks.

Regular Fit: Neither slim nor oversized. Regular-fitting garments that are bang in the middle. The middle is good.

Relaxed Fit: Drapes loosely on the body, baggy fit.

1Chest

Run the tape around the fullest part of your chest, the tape should be just below the arm pit and over the shoulder blades whilst horizontal to the floor.

2Waist

Measure around your natural waist as show in the diagram

3Inseam

Measure your inside leg from crotch to ankle blone keeping your leg straight: not as easy as it sounds, you could take a pair of trousers that you already own, that fit you well, and measure from the crotch to the bottom of the leg.

4Sleeve

This is a bit more tricky! Measure from the top of your spine (at the bottom of your neck) to your elbow and on the your wrist

5Arm

You should place the beginning of the measuring tape behind your shoulder, and feed it out following your arm making sure to pass both the elbow joint and the wrist, as pictured. You should take the measurement at the point where you would like the sleeve to end. This is usually just past your wrist.
