I stumbled upon Fjallraven and picked up this Keb jacket on sale. I've used it on a few short hikes so far, but mostly for wearing as my regular jacket. The G1000 material feels durable and the jacket feels well constructed. The grey stretch over the arms and back is very breathable and if you are not layered well, you can really feel the wind through this fabric. With a pack on and a base and mid-layer (I use an icebreaker sweater) the wind isn't a problem. I particularly like the high neck (when the hood is not up) since it protects the neck against the wind quite well. Great jacket.

The jacket is great for hiking in tropical rainforest. Not only it is light and stretchable, it is also very tough and extremely durable, brazing through the forest and woods with dense vegetation with ease. Moreover, the waterproofing shell coupled with the functional hood make it an ideal jacket for hiking in the wet humid rain-prone tropical forest. It is like an second skin armour that protect you from the elements and make you feel kind of invincible!
this is a very sturdy jacket, the g-1000 is still like new even after bushwhacking through brush that destroyed my friends "lucky" hoodie. its pretty light for a canvas shell but still isnt as compact as a synthetic one. the stretch panel on the back leaves you feeling a little exposed in high winds if you arent wearing a backpack but is a life saver when you are.
