Fjällräven's Bergtagen Lite Insulation Jacket provides a great option for layering up on colder days. The synthetic insulation is moisture resistant and retains warmth when it does get wet unlike down. This Lite version focuses on cutting down on weight making an ideal jacket for storing in your pack when you're on the move or simply wearing as a mid layer.
It has a limited set of features to achieve the weight with just two pockets and non-adjustable hood, hem and cuffs that are simply are elasticated. However, the quality is not lost and the nice feel to the fabric and smart, stylish design mean that it is particularly versatile in terms of where it can be worn. It still has high pockets for use with a harness and easy to grip zips showing it is still more than ready for technical mountain use.
