FJÄLLRÄVEN ACCESSORY Highlights: Fall 2015

SLC/Outdoor Retailer

Active travelers and city strollers haul their gear in Swedish brand, FJÄLLRÄVEN känken (backpacks)---with greater frequency than ever---from what we can see ---just by looking at fellow subway passengers.

 Made using the durable G-1000® fabrication ---the carry-all is joined by other kinds of backpacks and haulers this season-  in the usual and new seasonal colors-in a variety of sizes….aimed at expedition goers and more casual toters.


FJÄLLRÄVEN Fall 2015 Men's+Women's Lifestyle/Performance Apparel

SLC/Outdoor Retailer

FJÄLLRÄVEN -the Swedish brand with the cute fox logo---is well known for their känken mini-large backpacks over here ...but is less well known as a label that makes some durable VERY techy separates for outdoors-expedition going types...

WHAT: Winter temps calls for tough clothing but this brand knows its wearers still want to look reasonable-even while battling the elements...and served up many new pieces with its proprietary and/or eco fabrics including G-1000, fluoro-carbon free Eco-Shell® fabrication (launch of the Keb Eco-Shell® collection-hardhell), traceable down, recycled polyester, organic cotton, chrome free leather accents, and using solution dying techniques.

The Rose´s Brothers...sweeter or more dry-all are affordable refreshing acids/minerality, and pairs with food, beautifully-the ideal summer wines---the perfect "pinks"from the "garden of France."

Our first stop---the top tier---to taste the DELICIOUS DRINK NOW: ROSES De LOIRE....
