    Fjallraven Anorak No. 8.
    Size is Medium but they make these oversized for layering beneath.
    Made in Portugal
    Color is Dark Olive

    $322 USD shipped tyd.
    Price drop. Now 280 USD
    Price drop 260 USD shipped tyd.
    Now 250 USD shipping included.

    Bought brand new from www.fjallravencanada.ca last year (2017) for 549.99 CAD (422 USD). I hate to sell this but it's just sitting in storage, so I need to sell it off until later on down the line I can rebuy things like this.

    All I have done is removed the leather zipper pulls and the cotton draw-cords, waxed it to make the garment more water-resistent and longer-lasting, and carefully removed the small leather Fjallraven arctic fox logo from the arm. I was going to replace the draw-cord strings with paracord but haven't got around to it yet so it remains open for you to do yourself with whichever cord you choose.

    I put approx 10 hours of work into the waxing job and 2 full bars of Greenland Wax.

    If you don't want the wax it just washes out in a few washes.
    But if you like a good durable waxed canvas this thing is good to go.

    The distressed look of it isn't from any wear at all it is from being well impregnated with wax.

    To tell you the truth what I've done to it has all made it a better whole than how it comes from the factory.

    But, since I modified it against your will I will knock 100 USD off my asking price for what is a new and unused Fjallraven Anorak No. 8

    What’s your height/weight? And how does this fit on? Not trying to get too personal, just seeing if if will fit me.

    I agree with you. It's probably because of the high price. I have already knocked it down a ton and really don't want to let it go for less than this. There's nothing missing from it except the leather and cotton bits it comes with. I added 2 whole bars of Greenland Wax to it, not to mention hours of carefully working on it, paying special attention to the stitches and the seams, to make the garment that much more durable and longlasting, not trying to make it waterproof, just more durable. And in my mind the leather and cotton bits (other than look traditional) soak up water and don't easily dry out which is why I removed them because everything needs to be quick-drying.

    If you read the item description again you can see I have gone into detail regarding everything I did and why I did it.

    It is my thinking that the cotton cords and leather bits are for looks only and do not serve to function well under real conditions at all.

    I gently ripped the stitches holding the logo in place. I did not put any holes in it. The only holes left are the ones already made in the fabric when they sewed the logo on. The wax was put on after, not before. The warm wax rubbed in fills in and reinforces all stitching.
