FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Keb Eco-Shell® Collection Available Beginning in August 2015
(Boulder, CO) January 21, 2015 — In Fall-Winter 2015, heritage outdoor brand Fjällräven will expand its technical product range with the launch of the Keb Eco-Shell® collection, a line of high performance, sustainable hardshells. A Fjällräven milestone, the offering features weatherproof, breathable and sustainable outerwear and trousers for men and women. The Keb Eco-Shell® collection will be available beginning in August 2015 at specialty outdoor stores, Fjällräven flagship retail locations and online at www.fjallraven.us.
Fjällräven introduces its Eco-Shell® fabrication as a wind and waterproof solution best suited for rapid hikes over any terrain. Durable and lightweight, the fabrication has four-way stretch for a free range of motion. The high breathability material is combined with sealed seams to keep the elements out while allowing body moisture to escape efficiently. The advanced performance fabric is made with fluorocarbon-free recycled polyester making the Keb Eco-Shell® series the most environmentally conscious hardshell collection on the market. To further the sustainable footprint, the Eco-Shell® garments can be recycled at the end of the product lifestyle, and any unavoidable emissions that occur during production and transport are climate compensated.
