This means that in the summer your G-1000 trousers can have no wax, making them breathable and lightweight. Then when winter hits you simply add some layers of wax to boost your trousers' weather resistance. Greenland Wax G-1000 turns your 1-2 season kit into a 4 season wonder for minimal extra cost. The best Fjallraven trouser is the one that suits your needs best.

In summary, though expensive and heavier than some trekking trousers, the Fjallraven Barent Pro really delivers on quality and performance beyond just trekking, as long as it's in cooler weather. For those who want more information, I have uploaded a review of the Barents trousers which makes a detailed comparison between this model and the Barents Pro. The Vidda Pro ventilated is an updated version of the classic Vidda pro and has some added features to help combat sweaty legs on long hikes. Namely generous ventilated openings from the knees to hips and a slimmer fit to increase ease of movement. The waist has belt loops which is useful, especially for forest work as I can hang my axe from it. The trousers come with a "raw-length." The benefit of this is that the trousers can be tailored to your exact inside leg measurement for a more precise fit. Cut them a little longer for style and to help stop critters entering or a little shorter if you spend a lot of time splashing through water. There is also a hook to secure your ski boot or hiking boot. A ventilation zip at the side is perfect for releasing heat when you’re making that final push uphill.
Waterproofing is very good, but as others have said the liner can feel cool against your skin, long johns in cold wet weather would obviously be the answer here.
Stretch panels connecting the durable G-1000 eco allow for a great range of movement. As mentioned before the G-1000 adds to the versatility of the Kaipak making it a useful addition to your hiking wardrobe. Fjällraven's G-1000® Silent material is a densely woven blend of 65% polyester and 35% cotton, making it windproof and extremely hardwearing. This outer layer is windproof and also water-resistant, thanks to an impregnation of Greenland Wax. The brushed 'Silent' version of this material, as used here for the Brenner Pro Trousers, is ideal for hunters and other groups that need durable, functional garments that are also quiet. Greenland wax is what really brings Fjallraven to the next level. Made from high-quality beeswax and paraffin, Greenland wax can be applied to any piece of G-1000 clothing or equipment. To apply simply rub the wax on dry from the bar, then melt into the fabric using an iron, radiator or campfire. The benefits of using Greenland Wax are numerous. The main use is to add layers of waterproofness to your garment.According to Fjallraven the Barents Pro Trousers have a regular waist and regular fit. But this is not how I would describe them. They are low-waisted and slim-fitting. I am not used to wearing slim fit trousers and I found these too tight about the hips and crotch. These trousers come in European sizes, but Fjallraven provides a conversion chart. Size 50 is given as equivalent to my normal waist size of 34, and it turned out to be spot on. The main idea behind the Vidda Pro is durability. If you find yourself with a pair they’ll be in use for a very long time. These rugged trousers are built to take a beating thanks to their G-1000 construction. They’re reinforced at the knee and behind for extra protection when kneeling or sitting.
For our customers undertaking rigorous treks which may feature climbing the Keb trouser is our go-to recommendation. The Keb is a technically advanced trekking trouser which optimizes freedom of movement whilst not compromising on protection and durability.
Where to Buy
So is the Keb the best Fjallraven trouser? If you find yourself wanting a trouser with excellent freedom of movement but still wanting some protection from the elements and your surroundings then we can think of no better! However, if your needs differ then there are other Fjallraven trousers up to the task! Whether you favour comfort or durability there are many models to choose from that offer differing blends of the two. The trousers are also tough. They are made of Fjallraven’s G-1000 material, a heavy-duty polyester-cotton canvas, and they have a reinforced seat and knees. The knees have openings for knee pads. Ask a friend to take your measurements while standing in a straight and relaxed position without shoes. Remember that the tape measure should not be pulled too tight around the body but not be too loose either. Having owned Paramo and Buffalo garments (and still do) I wondered what Fjallraven had to offer, having been impressed by their range over the years.
