The Women's Essens Mimic Hooded Jacket 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.
Our Essens Mimic Hood Jacket is insulated with high-loft QuadFusion Mimic, which emulates the best qualities of down and combines it with superb performance in wet conditions. It's pack-compatible and cut for easy movement. Made in recycled and fluorocarbon free materials.
The women's Haglofs Essens Mimic Hooded Jacket is very light, packable and warm, even when wet. It looks and feels like a down jacket, but performs even better when the weather gets rough.
It actually has a very similar feature set to the Essens III Jacket with Polartec Powerstretch shoulder inserts underneath the arms and across the back of the shoulders, preventing any restrictions when your moving.
Now the hood is going to be a love or hate relationship for some. The hood itself is good with a reinforced peak and front external pull cords (covered by fabric to avoid it whipping in the wind). However the adjustment at the back of the hood is on the outside. This is good for saving weight as there's less fabric used to do so, but we don't think that it's as effective for reducing unwanted volume.
Plenty of storage pockets (two hand and one chest) with elasticated hem and cuffs to keep the weight down. This latest incarnation of the women's Essens Mimic Hooded Jacket 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.
