Polly want a cracker.
Your mother always said that imitation was the highest form of flattery, so it's no surprise that when synthetics mimic down feathers, they often ace the test of durability, versatility, and warmth. So whether you're bike-packing from Pennsylvania to Illinois or you're through-hiking the Appalachian Trail from Connecticut to central Vermont, the Haglöfs Men's Essens Mimic Insulated Jacket provides paramount protection, low-profile warmth, and ultimately prevails in otherwise testy situations.
QuadFusion Mimic insulation offers the lightweight warmth and compressibility for which down is known, but with a synthetic material that retains warmth even when wet (unlike down). The lightweight and durable Pertex Microlight exterior shields you from brisk winds and is treated with a fluorocarbon-free DWR coating to shed light rain and snow. Stretch inserts and an articulated fit permit ample mobility, comfort, and body temperature regulation throughout the course of your adventure.
