(The Gear Loop) - Haglöfs has announced its latest line-up of functional, technical and lightweight trekking gear that pushes the boundaries of reductionism, while retaining the sort of performance that ensures the garments and its wearers can survive the harshest environments.

"We are constantly trying to push the boundaries of lightweight trekking", says Annsofie Jakobsson, Head of Design at Haglöfs.

"In order to keep the products light and fast, minimalistic functionalism is necessary. This means we only apply what is really necessary for the activity."

Heading up the new range is the L.I.M GTX Jacket, a super lightweight and compressible outer that is made from Gore-Tex Paclite Plus 2.5 fabric for excellent weather protection and durability.

It packs down impossibly small but still manages to boast an abrasion-resistant inner surface, making it easy to wear directly against the skin or to slip over a warmer mid-layer.

Another highlight in the range is the L.I.M Mimic Hood, a 335g packable insulated jacket that uses a graphene-powered nano baffle for increased warmth and protection from extreme cold conditions… all without the added bulk.

The entire L.I.M range (less is more, if you hadn't already twigged) has been renovated and tweaked for spring/summer 2022, with a wide variety of products following Haglöfs’ lightweight and minimalistic mantra - from featherweight trekking pants to rugged shorts and beyond.
