I noticed that there is a lot of (quite expensive) Fjällräven outdoors gear for sale here in Germany and am curious whether this is a brand worth looking into, or whether their products are more trendy than practical. Is Fjällräven a reputable supplier of serious outdoors gear?

    I think this question can be salvaged. It should ask: "When shopping for outdoor clothing, how can I tell if something is suitable or is just intended to look trendy". (Since you're from Germany, stay away from Jack Wolfskin. That's my personal biased opinion :D )

  • Their down parka seems serious and legit, not sure about the rest of the stuff.

  • Jack Wolfskin does have some good items for a fair price. I would consider it a mid-tier brand.

Fjällräven is a solid decades old brand.

However, it may be considered very trendy and therefore be over priced in Germany. You should check the prices on Swedish net sites.
