Fjern Aktiv down jacket review. I’ve known about Fjern for a nearly 2 years now. They first popped up on my
instagram when I was in the market for a new waterproof layer.
So I followed the link from there website to
Sport Pursuit where I purchased the Orkan waterproof jacket.
I was and still am really impressed with the Orkan
(see review of jacket).
My view on the outdoors connects to the ethos Fjern have.
The word Fjern is Norwegian and means remote. This really shows in the design, functionality and quality of their products.

I came across this
DAKY SubZero Waterproof Socks on instagram and after a little research on there website I thought these might be good to wear with the Armaskin anti blister socks in a pair of trail runners. Continue reading “DAKY SubZero Waterproof Socks”
Here’s a quick review Revolution Race GPx Pro Pants
Review Revolution Race GPx Pro Pants
I had a delivery of a new pair of outdoor pant from
Revolution Race. I have had a pair of their GPx pants for a while now and really like wearing them.
I’ve used them in many different environments. I wore them for 4 days walking in the
Lake District and they worked well.
What I liked about them is the way that they dried really quickly.
I wanted something even more hard wearing for more arduous terrain and use especially for walking from
Nikkaluokta to Abisko next summer.
GPx Pro Pants
GPx Pro Pants are a multifunctional hybrid pant with 4-way stretch and reinforcements on the knees, seat and lower legs. I especially like the reinforced areas around the heels.
The reinforcements in RVRC® Flex is both wind and water repellent.
The stretch panels ventilate and gives an incredible comfort and are very fast drying.
The pants are equipped with ventilation zippers along the thighs, these are extremely good at releasing heat and condensation if need be.
The knees are fitted with pockets for knee pads if required and with boot hooks these pants are ideal for muddy / rocky terrain.
Like the GPx Pants they are very figure hugging. If like me your used to baggy pants, these take a little to get used.
Once you’ve adapted to them you’ll find them extremely comfortable.
The only down fall I found is that even thought the pants are hooked onto my boots they still ride up on the back of my boots.
Heres a short video review Revolution Race GPx Pro Pants.
