The original Vidda Pro Trousers have been a popular product from Fjällräven over the years, particularly with trekkers and bushcraft practitioners. Durable, windproof, water resistant and with loads of useful pockets, there aren’t many options that would beat them in terms of functionality. Their downside, however, is that they can arguably be a little on the hot side for summer hiking, being better suited to colder conditions.
Good news though. Fjällräven have now addressed that aspect of the original Vidda Pro, releasing a new variation of them called the Vidda Pro Ventilated. And they’ve have actually made more changes here than their name might suggest, not only adding in details to improve the breathability but enhancing the eco credentials as well, most notably with the use of new recycled and organic materials.
Outdoors Magic’s Editor Will Renwick has been out in the Preseli Hills of Pembrokeshire to test out not only these new trousers but the new Vidda Pro Jacket as well. Watch the video below to get his low down on the new details and fabrics and his verdict on their functionality.
Shown in the video are the Fjällräven Vidda Pro Jacket, which is currently retailing at £260 and the Vidda Pro Ventilated Trousers, available for £165. Both the jacket and trousers are available in men’s and women’s cuts, and in a number of different sizes and colours. Will also introduces Fjällräven’s Singi Clip braces (£60), which, as he demonstrates, are satisfyingly compatible with the Vidda Pro Ventilated Trousers, plus that good old Greenland Wax (£9) is on show as well.
