Bring Haglofs Women's Essens II Down Vest along the next time you head into the high, cold mountains. This swedish born company has been in the outdoors business for 100 years and believes that a layer on layer system makes pieces that much more versatile. Using a lightweight, highly compressible design, the Essens II delivers ample warmth you can wear under or over a shell on a frigid ridge line and on its own back at camp. The DWR treated ripstop fabric combats wind and light moisture, while the 800 fill down traps heat when you need it most. The mini baffle construction helps to keep the down in place, while the stowable design enables you to pack it into one of the two hand pockets without it taking up too much space in your backpacking, skiing, trekking, or climbing backpack.
