Different types of shirts
Four types of shirts
We view the shirt to be a part of your outdoor equipment, just like a shell jacket or down garment, and we therefore choose the fabric and functions based on the activity. This means that you can expect a lot from a Fjällräven shirt.
All of our shirts are designed to withstand many years of active wear. They are reinforced with overlapping seams and double stitching and the buttons are fastened securely to handle rough wear. Many models have openings for extra ventilation under the sleeves, in the sides or in the back. Several pocket constructions are made from mesh so that shirt will be cool and comfortable to wear when you are active.
To make it easier for you to choose, we have divided our shirts into several main categories based on their intended use:
Trekking and outdoor shirts
Here you will find our most durable shirts, which are designed for active use in nature. These include cotton or bamboo shirts with extra reinforcements and excellent breathability as well as shirts in quick-drying stretch for more intense outdoor activities. This category also includes comfortable models made from soft, moisture-wicking fleece that function perfectly as a warm middle layer.
Our travel shirts are perfect for adventures under a burning sun as well as warm summer days. They are made from a durable fabric that breathes well and keeps you cool at the same time as it protects against UV radiation. Other practical features are their low weight, the fact that they take up little space in your suitcase and that they are practically wrinkle-free.
The colouring of these shirts help you blend in with nature. Here you will find sturdy cotton shirts, quick-drying shirts made from functional fabric and warm shirts in a wool blend. Perfect for fishing, hunting, bird watching and other activities in the forest.
Those of us who appreciate the durability and functionality of the outdoor shirt also demand a little more from our everyday shirts. We have therefore developed a line of comfortable, practical shirts made from high-quality fabric. Our Everyday Outdoor shirts are just as comfortable to wear to work as they are to wear in your free time.
Different fits on shirts
Fjällräven shirts come in three different fits for men and two for women. The shirt that you should choose depends entirely on your personal preferences – quite simply which fit you prefer to wear and the activity you need the shirt for. A lighter shirt that you wear in the summer can, for example, be more fitted than the fleece or wool shirt you want to wear as a warm middle layer on top of a base layer.
Fjällräven's fits include
Comfort fit - slightly wider for more comfort
Regular fit - traditional fit
Slim fit - a comfortable cut that sits snugly against the body (only for men)
