The updated LIM Essens has managed to shave off a few grams of weight while seriously upgrading the hydrophobic down. This is ideal for layering in cold conditions or for use as an outer.

Haglofs says:

When every gram counts, this is the absolute best and most reliable down jacket you can have on your back. It’s a L.I.M piece so, like the others in the range, it’s built as light as we can go and with all essentials in place. While you might forget you’re wearing it, you will notice that you are dry, snug and warm. The DWR-treated shell is extremely tough and lightweight, and filled with premium DOWN PLATINUM 800 CUIN fill power goose down Treated with Nikwax® for long lasting performance even in humid conditions and to speed up drying time. It’s complete with articulated sleeves and two pockets for warming your hands.

Our Verdict

Haglofs' L.I.M Essens Down Jacket is the perfect example of the Less Is More concept. This is fairly minimalist in terms of features with elasticated hem and cuffs, combined with the 7D outer shell make for a very lightweight jacket. The use of 800FP down and mini box quilted construction provide a good amount of warmth for such a lightweight and packable jacket.

The main change for this version of the L.I.M Essens Down Jacket is the new down treatment Haglofs have developed. This new water repellent is fluorocarbon free so it's still Eco-friendly and Haglofs state that they expect the down to stay dry for up to 10,000 minutes (166 hours!) in wet conditions which is a very bold claim. This jacket has handled damp conditions well enough so far and if it can perform anywhere close to half as good as claimed it will be a huge leap for down performance.
