Summary

I received this as a Christmas present last year and I love it. It is very lightweight, and very warm. I take it on backpacking trips because it is really easy to pack too. My only problem is when it rains, it's waterproof, I just don't think it's very good for the jacket.

Pros

  • Warm
  • Lightweight
  • Easily packable

Cons

  • The zipper is on the girls side

My only problem is when it rains, it's waterproof, I just don't think it's very good for the jacket. 

Very much worth the price you pay.

Summary

Bought it to be used as a mid layer instead of a fleece jacket, it's light almost windproof.. I have a model with a hood.

Pros

  • Light weighted
  • Almost windproof
  • Warm

Cons

  • Would have liked it to be more breathable

I have tested it in - 38°C and 25 m/s wind wearing a Haglôfs next to skin shirt and a normal long sleeved shirt, walking normal pace I had no problem keeping warm. I'm surprised about how windproof this jacket is and have not yet tried to use it as intended as a mid layer under my Haglöfs Spitz.
