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. 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?

I’m 6’3”, 42” chest and 34” waist, I weigh around 13.5 stone and I’m wearing a size Large – And this Fjallraven Keb Touring Down jacket fits me like a dream.

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.  

With this size large there’s enough room for lightweight layers, I’ve got on a base layer and alight fleece, and it fits perfectly. However, if I was 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

Summary

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 Should Your Insulated Jacket Fit?

Insulated jackets are pedantic little things. Too tight and you'll compress the insulation and limit the warmth capabilities of your brand new jacket, too loose and you'll spend hours warming up the dead space inside the jacket. Getting the correct fit isn't just about aesthetics, it will determine how warm you are. 

The Incorrect Fit

Too loose: A jacket which is too loose will keep you relatively warm, however it will take far longer to do so and will waste large amounts of your precious energy. An insulated jacket works by trapping the natural heat that your body gives off in the fibres of the insulation; this creates a micro-climate inside your jacket, keeping you warm and toasty. If your jacket is too loose, heat will be able to escape through the hem, the sleeves and the neck of the jacket; it's a little like sticking the heating on in your car with the windows cracked open - it will heat up, just incredibly slowly.   

Too tight: A jacket which is too tight is arguably worse than one that is too loose. If your jacket is far too tight, the baffles can compress to a point where the insulation can't loft effectively, limiting the amount of warmth it can trap. Essentially, it won't work! 

The Correct Fit
It's a tricky one to explain, but it's somewhere in the middle. You've first got to consider how many layers you'll tend to wear underneath; will you have just a t-shirt then the jacket, or possibly a baselayer, midlayer and then the jacket? When you've figured out your layers and you've popped your insulated jacket over the top, you shouldn't have any dead space inside. The cuffs and hem should be comfortably sealed around your waist and wrists with room to move. You should be able to lift an arm up above your head without the hem of the jacket lifting more than an inch or so, and the sleeves should be long enough that when carrying out the same motion, they aren't mid-way up your forearm. Your shoulders and chest area should have enough room so that your hands can touch behind your back without feeling restricted. 

Additional Information
Lastly, consider which activites you'll primarily be carrying out while wearing the jacket. Are you primarily using it as a winter climbing piece, or an everyday/dog walking jacket? You'll find that technical climbing jackets tend to feature a shorter cut, while urban and casual jackets feature a longer cut to offer additional warmth with less mobility.

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

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.

"I first noticed Trekitt by their fantastic YouTube videos, which were very informative and honest. So I headed on over to the website and looked at various coats to try and determine which to go for. Being a bit of a muppet I didn't really have a clue what was best so contacted customer services who directed me to a few coats but said he would go away (over the weekend!) and think some more and get back to me Monday. I thought it was just a fob off as the conversation had been going a while but low and behold on Monday morning an email appears with suggestions! I was so pleasantly surprised that if I hadn't already been convinced to buy with them, it was concreted then. I bought 2 coats from them the same day and very shortly after they appeared. The fit was exactly as they had suggested it would be, the quality of the items was as described and I am very happy with them. In this day and age of large companies taking a backward step from customer service, it is such a breath of fresh air to be treated with such a personal touch. If I ever need anything outdoorsy, I know exactly where I'm going."
