Fjällräven Luhkka Cape
Smart knee-length cape inspired by the Sami's versatile and practical Luhkka. The Fjällräven Luhkka Cape can be worn on its own during the fall and spring and as a reinforcement garment over normal winter clothing on cold winter days - just as the Sami have always worn it. When worn over normal shell garments it offers flexible protection against the cold and bitter winds, and any snow can be quickly shaken off before going indoors. A thin synthetic lining has been added to the strong, wind and water resistant G-1000® for extra warmth. The cape has a fixed, adjustable hood with detachable synthetic fur edging and a reflective band in the back. There is a half zipper in the front and a G-1000® gusset in the opening with soft fleece on the inside. A breast pocket is positioned immediately beside the opening and further down there is a kangaroo pouch. Push buttons at the wrists hold the cape in place when you are on the move. Zipper pulls and the trim are in natural tone leather. Key Features: Traditional cape style in G-1000® original, light padded. Adjustable hood with detachable fur. Big front pocket with fleece lining. One chest pocket. At bottom hem adjustable with press buttons.
G-1000® Original is made from 65% polyester and 35% cotton. It is a tightly woven very robust material that makes for long lasting products. Reducing the frequency with which products need to be replaced is a major part of sustainable production and consumption. G-1000® gains water resistance by applying Greenland Wax to it. This means it's entirely PFC free.
