- How do I actually spell this word
- 30% off a fairly small selection of winter clothes is not the big end of the season sale they’re marketing this as
- Just save yourself the time— they don’t even have that one backpack that made the brand popular
This Fjallraven sale is a 3/10 due to poor discounts and a small selection of stock. It takes place with lots of non-discounted items, and this sale honestly feels like a way to lure people in to buy these regularly priced items. Winter coats, accessories, vests, sweaters, and of course, backpacks are featured. The prices for the items vary greatly. The thicker winter coats fall around $315 and the thinner ones at around $175. Accessories are priced on the lower side, but in my opinion are still overpriced. The best priced backpack I could find is $45, but the other models are much more expensive.
The clothing all has that “I hike like it’s my job”, lumberjacky vibe. Everything looked super cozy and warm, if you could look past the fact that these discounts were less than cool (sorry, I can’t resist a good pun!).
Items were organized by type. The staff was outgoing and helpful. There were no long lines, thank God. But the fact that the lack of lines was my favorite part of this one is prettyyyy telling. Not. Worth. It.
What: Fjallraven sale. When: February 10–17, 2020. Where: 38 Greene Street.
