Down jackets are tough to beat when it comes to keeping you super warm and being lightweight but that only applies to them when they’re dry. Swedish outdoor brand Haglöfs have got around this damp down problem with by using QuadFusion Mimic insulation instead. Made from recycled materials this down alternative is still super light but more importantly still keeps you warm when it’s soaking wet. Whilst the breathable, tear/wind resistant Pertex shell outer is constructed to keep water out and warm air in. Making the Haglöfs Essens Mimic jacket an ecological and practical alternative to traditional down filled jackets. Clever stuff eh?
