The L.I.M Breathe is Haglofs' lightest waterproof shell that we stock. It utilises the amazing Gore-Tex Shakedry fabric to provide excellent weather protection and breathability in an incredibly lightweight package. This jacket stands out as a superb fastpacking, running and mountain marathon piece.

Haglofs says

The ultimate L.I.M jacket for wet spring conditions. Super light, extremely breathable, and 100% waterproof. The unique outer face gives persistent beading and prevents water absorption – it runs right off the surface with just a couple of shakes. Made for high pulse activities, the L.I.M Breathe GTX Shakedry jacket will help you push for your new personal best.

Our Verdict

Haglofs' L.I.M. Breathe GTX Shakedry Jacket uses some excellent technology to produce a top quality waterproof shell. The use of 2 layer Gore-Tex Shakedry allows the weight to be kept low, under 180g for the medium size, while the minimalist design is functional and practical without adding any unnecessary weight. The small pack size that goes with the low weight illustrate that this is a jacket that suits light and fast adventures and not a big, hardwearing, wear-all-day type of shell. The feature set is fairly limited, in order to keep the weight down, with elasticated hem, cuffs and hood. It still includes two hand warmer pockets which adds some practicality.   

The key advantage of the Shakedry is the persistently beading outer fabric, no need to top up the DWR (though will need regular cleaning). Shake Dry is also super breathable so it is well suited to more intense mountain activities. It does have a very different feel to other hard shell fabrics which might take some getting used to but it certainly stands out from the crowd and has performed brilliantly so far.
