Buying Guide

Get the most from your gear

We have more than 500 products in our range, so sometimes it can be a little tricky making a decision. Should you buy Keb or Vidda Pro Trousers? A 65 or 75 litre backpack? You want the best gear and garments to suit your needs and those needs can be as diverse as a 10-day trek in the Swedish-winter wilderness, to a summer day-hike in Southern California. So to make choosing easier, we’ve put the expert knowledge of our designers and field testers into these handy product guides.

Before you start reading our guides, you should get to know our different product ranges or ‘families’, as we call them. We have seven of them and they’re all named after different areas in Sweden.

Care & repair

We create our clothing and hardware in such a way that it should last for ages. But over time tears can appear, buttons may get lost and zips possibly get stuck. Learn more about looking after your gear.
