An insulated jacket with great moisture management and rain-proofing, thanks to the unique materials used in its construction. Stay warm, stay dry: stay moving.
Pertex Microlight offers the perfect balance of low weight, softness and durability. Essential when every gram counts. The tightly woven construction is well balanced; preventing heat loss through the fabric while offering significant weight reduction and good strength. This will actually make the garment or sleepingbag warmer without adding weight. Pertex Microlight is downproof, wind resistant, water-repellent and durable. The Pertex Microlight fabric used by Haglöfs is bluesign approved and have a fluorocarbon free DWR treatment.
QuadFusion is made completely from bluesign-approved material and recycled/recyclable polyester. QuadFusion is a very versatile insulation alternative. Great warmth-to-weight ratio is achieved by using hollow-fiber that is crimped into a spiral shape – maximizing the air-trapping ability and subsequently the warmth, while at the same time keeping the weight down. Recycled content: 50 %. bluesign approved.
PFC-FREE DWR (FLUOROCARBON-FREE)
The durable water repellent action of our PFC-free DWR treatments comes from a hydrocarbon based, silicone based and/or wax based technology instead of fluorinated chemical. Irrespective of the ‘active ingredient’, all PFC-free DWR treatments used are totally free from all perfluorinated chemicals (PFC) (of course including both perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS) and perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA)), free from other halogenated substances and free from alkylphenolethoxylates, including nonylphenolethoxylates. The possible drawbacks are that the oil repellency and the durability of the PFC-free DWR treatments may be slightly lower than for a PFC-containing option and therefore re-treatment for water repellency may be necessary at an earlier point in time. In all, we use very good, environmentally friendly alternatives to PFC-containing DWR treatments.
