Haglofs overhaul mid layer collection with Polartec collaboration

Written by

Press Release: For FW21 Haglöfs, the Swedish outdoor brand, has overhauled its mid-layer collection, boosting all-round performance. 

The collection is engineered to provide an outstanding level of comfort and warmth in cold conditions.  Using cutting edge Polartec® technology - the premium provider of innovative textile solutions - the two brands have come together in a brand-new collaboration. 

Top of the mountain is Haglöfs ROC Series designed for harsh Nordic alpine environments where freedom of movement and protection are paramount.  Take the Mimic Junction Jacket using award-winning Polartec® Power Air™.  This ground-breaking fabric has a micro-quilted appearance.  Small pockets of air are trapped within the fibres, retaining warmth and reducing microfibre shedding during washing by over five times that of traditional mid-layer fabrics, helping keep plastic out of our oceans.

Haglöfs SNW Series is about big mountain performance wear.  The Touring Mid Jacket is made from a Polartec fabric originally developed for the US Special Forces.  Alpha® Direct™ is adept at accommodating changes in activity levels, keeping users comfortable throughout, without the need to shed layers.  This adaptable insulation is fast-drying, super breathable and very lightweight.  The omission of a backing fabric (“Direct”) enhances the already excellent level of breathability and keeps the garment super lightweight.  Great for mountain users switching between high-pulse uphill climbs and cool, windy downhill runs.

Reliable kit on the trail is invaluable when the weather is unpredictable.  The Out Series Astral Hood using Polartec® Power Stretch® Pro™ is great for both all-season trekking and sitting around the camp in the evenings.  This fabric is supremely comfortable thanks to its generous stretch, excellent breathability and durable nylon face.
