L.I.M - "Less is more" with Haglöfs

It was around five years ago that our partner first launched the L.I.M Outdoor series. But those three letters stand for much more than just a product collection. L.I.M. means ‘less is more’. This describes a philosophy that Haglöfs has really taken to heart. ‘Less is more’ is a concept that starts with equipment but that extends into a minimalist lifestyle, especially when it comes to outdoor activities. The L.I.M. collection is particularly suited to shorter trips where a low weight is your top priority. In order to live up to this philosophy, Haglöfs has equipped its L.I.M. products with only the most essential features. This means that the brand’s jackets, pants, shoes and even rucksacks are lightweight, practical and easy to store. Nonetheless, they’re still completely weatherproof. With the Haglöfs L.I.M. collection, less really is more. With the collection’s clothing pieces, going for a spontaneous hike in the mountains after work has never been easier. Light, supportive, chic and armed with Gore-Tex®, which ensures the garment is 100% waterproof. What more could you need? hgl-home-sub-hero-bts_m

The new Haglöfs L.I.M jackets

Haglöfs is definitely ready for new outdoor adventures. For this spring, the brand has launched a whole new range of L.I.M. jackets. We now have these models in our shop for you and would like to introduce you to two of the jackets in more detail.

Haglöfs L.I.M Comp Gore-Tex® 3-layer jacket

The highlight of this collection, this outdoor jacket is made of ultra-lightweight Gore-Tex® Active-Shell material. It’s 100% waterproof and also breathable, which means that water and dirt will simply pearl off the surface of the material. The pockets and cut are what makes the L.I.M. Comp jacket so comfortable and practical. The two central pockets come with mesh windows that support airflow to the body. Apart from all of this, the design is also superb. The men’s models come in orange/blue and in grey with yellow details. The women’s jacket is available in coral and in wine red/purple. We’re very impressed with this jacket and can barely wait for the next opportunity to wear it. Don’t you feel the same?

Haglöfs L.I.M Mid Lightweight Fleece Jacket

Put simply, this is the lightest and most robust midlayer jacket that Haglöfs has ever created. The L.I.M. Mid Lightweight fleece jacket will keep you warm and dry during your outdoor adventures. The soft and stretchy material feels soft against the skin and makes you feel good all round throughout your hikes and treks. The thumb holes keep the cold air out of your sleeves, while the chest pocket provides practical storage space. Colour-wise, this fleece is perfect for matching with the L.I.M. Comp Gore-Tex® jacket. The men’s version is available in dark grey and in yellow/red, while the women can choose between wine red/purple with coral details and light grey. Which one do you like best?

Taking care of Haglöfs L.I.M clothing

Ever wondered how to wash and take care of a Gore-Tex® jacket? Many are completely lost when the jacket in question has a Gore-Tex® membrane. If you have Haglöfs L.I.M. products, we can assure you it’s a perfectly simple process. Jackets and pants can be washed at 40°C - just set your machine to a gentle wash cycle. It’s best to wash the products with other items of a similar colour and avoid using fabric softener if you can. Soon your outdoor clothes will be as good as new again, with colours just as bright as when you bought them - perfect for taking with you on your next adventure. When it comes to Haglöfs L.I.M. outdoor rucksacks, we would recommend a hand wash with lukewarm water. It’s best to undo all of the straps, then you can put the rucksack in the bath and wash it using a soft sponge. Then just rinse the rucksack with clear water and hang it up to dry. Washing one of these rucksacks in the washing machine isn’t recommended, as parts of the rucksack could become loose or come off entirely.
