The women's Essens Mimic Vest is a highly versatile, warm and packable jacket filled with QuadFusion Mimic - a light, lofty, down-like synthetic fibre cluster insulation. Now made with recycled and flurocarbon free materials. 

Haglofs says

Our Essens Mimic Vest is insulated with recycled QuadFusion Mimic, which emulates the extraordinary warming characteristics of down but also performs excellently in wet conditions. We've added stretch fleece side panels for greater ease of movement and more athletic fit. Made in recycled and fluorocarbon free materials.

Our Verdict

The women's Haglofs Essens Mimic Vest is very light, packable and warm, even when wet. It looks and feels like a down vest, but performs even better when the weather gets rough. The vest features elastic arm holes and stretchy fleece side panels with excellent wicking properties, preventing any restrictions when your moving.

It's important to note that the 2 front handwarmer pockets do not have any zips, but the vest does feature a large  zipped pocket on the inside for important items such as cash, keys and your phone. This latest incarnation of the Haglof's Essens Mimic Vest has seen a big improvement when it comes to the fabric. It's now updated with recycled and flurocarbon free materials which is better for the environment.
