Haglofs L.I.M Comp Jacket | Review

In the running world, less really is more

People not fully familiar with core, highly technical, outdoor gear are sometimes staggered by the effort that goes into shaving tiny, almost imperceptible, amounts of weight off new products. “Surely, that makes no difference?” they scoff, “Who even cares about a few grams?”

But what these naysayers don’t understand is that sometimes, and it’s not a stretch to say this, you’ll be undertaking a strenuous activity where it genuinely feels like every gram counts.

Whether that activity is hiking, running, climbing, mountaineering, skiing, or ski touring, there’ll be moments during the day where, deep down in your gut, you’re thankful you chose a lightweight option like Haglofs L.I.M Comp.

Minimalistic, in that way all the best ultra-light clothing is, this jacket squeezes every last drop of juice from its figurative orange. By doing away with showy and unnecessary frills, it really goes all out to maximise its weight-to-performance ratio.

“A simple, intelligent, antidote to a world bursting at the seams with overly complicated products”

The Gore-Tex Active used in this jacket’s build provides the dream combination of exceptional breathability and reassuring protection against the elements. Its lightweight nature, meanwhile, further underlines the idea that little goes a long way.

Other aspects of the L.I.M Comp that we think you’ll appreciate include the close-fitting hood, the DWR-treated surfaces which repel water and dirt, the simplicity of the elasticated hem and cuffs that improve fit and comfort, and the mesh windows in the hand pockets that pleasantly enhance air flow. The reflective details on this jacket are another nice touch; improving your visibility on the hill or when you’re out running on the road.

With its clean silhouette fit that won’t hamper your movements, as well as a choice of five different colour stylings to choose from, we think you’ll love this Haglofs jacket. Consider the lightweight L.I.M Comp well and truly endorsed.

“As soon as I got my hands on this, I could tell that it was a jacket made for people who like moving quickly in the outdoors. It’s just so light. So sporty. So primed and ready to get going, and get moving in. Love the breathable mesh pockets. Love the elasticated cuffs and hem. Love rubbing my thumb over the embossed Haglöfs logo. Quality jacket.” – OM Editor, Will Renwick.
