Ultralight can still mean ultra warm.
The L.I.M in the title of the Haglöfs Women's L.I.M Essens Down Jacket stands for Less is More, which means that this jacket should be your go-to for those times when every gram counts. Haglöfs used its 100 years of experience making premium outdoor gear to create this, its premier down jacket. Haglöfs cut this thing down to a minuscule 5.6oz, which means it might just weigh less than your T-shirt, but that doesn't mean it sacrificed performance. 800-fill goose down provides supreme warmth while a DWR coating repels light moisture and articulated sleeves allow for a wide range of motion. Attractive diagonal mini box quilted baffles look stylish while keeping that down fill exactly where it needs to be.

Size runs one size smaller

The jacket looked great and appeared very nice. I bought this jacket as a replacement for my wife's older down jacket. I unfortunately had to return the jacket immediately since the jacket fits one size smaller than ordered (medium).
Could not be cuter.

I wanted a down jacket for spring and fall temps, something fitted rather than bulky. This jacket is It. The fit is perfect. The shell is silky and the color vibrant (I got the dynamite, and it was named correctly). The pockets are kangaroo rather than zippered as describe by Backcountry. I usually prefer zippers, but these pockets are super comfy and more appropriate for the style of the jacket as a whole. I've never tried this brand before, but will again.
