If you're the kind of gal who gets sweaty palms and excited beyond belief at the first sign of snow, then you're also the kind of human who requires unwavering performance and paramount protection from her goods. Case in point: the Haglofs Women's Essens Mimic Insulated Jacket. The Essens Mimic is a durable, versatile synthetic insulation layer inspired by the stupendous tenacity and warmth of down and created in the likeness of fluffy feathers, so whether you're trekking around Mount Hood or wandering through Mad River Glen, the Essens curtails cold with an iron fist. The Essens is crafted with QuadFusion Mimic insulation that mimics down when dry but manages to retain warmth even when wet. The lightweight, durable Pertex exterior is fluorocarbon free, tear and wind resistant, and treated with a DWR coating, and the Polartec Powerstretch inserts and articulated fit permit ample mobility, comfort, and body temperature regulation throughout the course of your adventure.
