The Rapid Mimic has a top quality feel that provides warmth and durability. This synthetic jacket is a great all-rounder and excels in mixed conditions.
Our Rapid Mimic Hood is made from tear- and wind-resistant Pertex® shell fabric and insulated with a remarkable recycled synthetic down, which emulates the extraordinary warming characteristics of real down, but gives excellent performance even when wet. Additional QuadFusion™ insulation in non-quilted areas provides reliable warmth, lets you move freely, and reduces the risk of cold spots.
Haglofs' Rapid Mimic Insulated Hooded Jacket has a fantastic feel with the use of quality materials. The combination of Haglofs Mimic Gold insulation and a durable 30D Pertex outer make for a versatile and practical jacket. There are two small stretch fleece panels under the arms that are intended to increase breathability and help you moderate your temperature when you are heating up but it's questionable how effective they (we haven't noticed any benefit from them) are as they are so small.
A good hood with stiffened peak and easy adjustment are another pleasing feature when the weather turns. There are two good sized hand warmer pockets and a chest pocket for storage. Elasticated cuffs and hem help minimise weight and bulk. The feel of this jacket really sets it apart from others, with a luxurious silky feel to the outer and a good amount of insulation.
