Men's Hydrophobic Down Jacket

THE BENCHMARK. OUR WARMEST HYDROPHOBIC DOWN JACKET

NEW. 2024 LIMITED GLACIAL EDITION

Built in the name of one thing: warmth. A luxuriously padded goose down jacket and our homage to the beauty of Norway’s glacial landscapes and Jöttnar’s brutal arctic heritage.

We set no time or resource restraints when designing the new Fjorm. Its complexity makes it the longest to manufacture of all our garments, encompassing the most individual production steps, and requiring more individual construction specialists to build than any of our other down jackets.

Built to overcome extreme cold and punishing wind-chill, we’ve had it polar-proven by endurance athletes in Antarctica, the coldest continent on Earth.

Filled with an impressive 275g of hydrophobic 850 Fill Power goose down in a heat mapped box baffle body to create extra warmth where it’s really needed. Our down stays dry 10x longer than untreated down, meaning continued insulation even when damp. This new 2024 limited release sees further refinement of the hood for improved visibility and packability on and off the mountain, upgraded internal drawcord routing and a full performance fit upgrade for better articulation.

Wear as your permanent outer when stationary or when your work rate is lower, or slip on and off over your shell during stop/start activities to remove any chance of skin exposure from switching layers.

The limited edition new Vista colour is inspired by the captivating ice caves of Norway’s Nigardsbreen glacier, with the name Fjorm derived from the Élivágar, the Ice Rivers of Norse legend.

True to Fjorm

As a relatively long-term afficionado of Jottnar and the proud owner of among other items, the wonderful Fenrir, I took the plunge on the Fjorm. Primarily to replace a style over substance North Face parker (neither overly waterproof, windproof or warm). It's main use intended to be cold South Coast days/nights, (whether a walk along the beach or a walk back from the pub!), sitting in a cold football/rugby stadium, watching my kids do sports at the weekend stood on cold sidelines, AND of course my skiing trips - not for the pistes (for which I use a Floyen under a hard shell) but for cold nights around town, or apre-ski.

As one might imagine, it copes with the South Coast walks incredibly well - probably too well. I certainly wouldn't use it for real exerting walks on the Downs. Once you generate a bit of heat it's going nowhere in the Fjorm! Caught out in a shower, again, it didn't seem to worry the Fjorm, it's thick enough to offer some protection, and the hydrophobic down keeps its shape, a good level of insulation and dries super quick.

A cold winter Saturday afternoon at Fratton Park or Twickenham? Fjorm laughs at the chill. If only Jottnar did some nice Fjorm based Boxers to keep your bum warm!

The real test was Chamonix in January with evening temps down to -6 and up at the Aguille du Midi around -16. The cold didn't even begin to make a dent (underneath I just had a T-shirt and a micro fleece). This is a jacket that wants to mother you and keep you cozy and warm - and succeeds admirably. I've been to Tromso and sub -25 degree temps, and I have little doubt Fjorm would just shrug and say "Is that all you've got?".

Like all Jottnar gear it's designed to look good - and does - whilst having the substance some other manufacturers fail on. Yes its expensive, and yes you can find similar looking jackets cheaper. But look at the detail and you can see where the price differential comes in. Indeed you can find equally or more expensive jackets without the attention to detail. You can really feel the quality with the Fjorm. And just those small things that show attention to detail like the small circular disc at the bottom of the zip that makes it easier to zip it up (hard to explain!).

As someone who generates a lot of heat, I probably won't use it as much as I'd like and the Fenrir gets almost daily use. If you live in colder climes than South Coast England or walk/climb in the Lakes or Cairngorms etc, I'm sure you can get a lot more use out of it.

On a final practical note, I'm 6ft with a post Xmas weight of touching 15 stone (now declining!) and the Large is perfect (as indeed it is with all my Jottnar gear).

Should also add, that (and those who have already bought Jottnar will probably know), customer service is excellent. Any questions are answered promptly and knowledgably.

Hi Chris

Thanks for such a detailed review. It's rewarding to have your feedback after the sweat and tears that go into developing and building the Fjorm. The Fjorm has been in our range since we started Jöttnar and many iterations and much testing later, we're delighted with its 2024 'Glacial' edition just released (Feb 24).

This from you resonates with me particularly, 'The real test was Chamonix in January with evening temps down to -6 and up at the Aguille du Midi around -16. The cold didn't even begin to make a dent'. Love your Tromso aside too - I HAVE been in Tromso at -25C and wish I that I could have had the Fjorm then!
