What is the V Series Mimic Hood?

The Mimic is an insulated jacket with a difference. It uses an insulation containing graphene and a windproof outer fabric, making it ideal for virtually any mountain activity you can think of. Trekking, climbing, mountaineering, scrambling, the list goes on. 

What is it made of?

Insulation: The most intelligent part of this jacket is undoubtedly the insulation. Haglofs use their own Mimic Platinum Ultracluster Graphene throughout the jacket. This is a fully synthetic insulation designed to mimic the warmth characteristics of down. Rather than being a big sheet of insulation, it's in little clusters like down; this means it traps exceptional amounts of warmth but also packs down to a fraction of its original size and weighs very little. If it gets wet, it'll dry quickly and will still provide warmth (unlike down). Graphene is then added to evenly disperse your body heat around the jacket, reducing heat-loss through various areas of the jacket. As well as evenly dispersing heat, it allows the jacket to insulate you far faster than a conventional alternative. As if that wasn't enough, Haglofs mix a little recycled polyester in there as well to boost warmth.

Fabrics: The techiness doesn't stop there! The Mimic features a super lightweight Pertex Quantum 7D fabric on the outside and a Gore-Tex Infinium membrane on the inside. This lightweight outer fabric provides good weather-resistance and durability, while the Infinium membrane provides total windproof protection and a high level of water-resistance if you happen to get caught out. In practice, we've actually found this membrane to be virtually waterproof unless exposed to constant, torrential rain. The outer fabric is also treated with a DWR (durable water repellent) to shrug off light rain. 

What are its features?

A fully insulated and adjustable hood provides extra warmth and protection when stationary, while an insulated baffle behind the main zip reduces heat loss. Two zipped hand pockets and one zipped chest pocket provide ample space for your usual bits and bobs. Both the hem and cuffs are elasticated to trap warmth, yet stretch to fit over gloves or additional layers. 

Where does it fit in the layering system?

The V Series Mimic is primarily designed as an outer layer. Thanks to the no-fuss insulation and Gore-Tex Infinium membrane, you'll only need to pop a shell over the top in heavy, persistent rain.

  • Gore-Tex Infinium membrane

How Should Your Insulated Jacket Fit?

Insulated jackets are pedantic little things. Too tight and you'll compress the insulation and limit the warmth capabilities of your brand new jacket, too loose and you'll spend hours warming up the dead space inside the jacket. Getting the correct fit isn't just about aesthetics, it will determine how warm you are. 

The Incorrect Fit

Too loose: A jacket which is too loose will keep you relatively warm, however it will take far longer to do so and will waste large amounts of your precious energy. An insulated jacket works by trapping the natural heat that your body gives off in the fibres of the insulation; this creates a micro-climate inside your jacket, keeping you warm and toasty. If your jacket is too loose, heat will be able to escape through the hem, the sleeves and the neck of the jacket; it's a little like sticking the heating on in your car with the windows cracked open - it will heat up, just incredibly slowly.   

Too tight: A jacket which is too tight is arguably worse than one that is too loose. If your jacket is far too tight, the baffles can compress to a point where the insulation can't loft effectively, limiting the amount of warmth it can trap. Essentially, it won't work! 

The Correct Fit
It's a tricky one to explain, but it's somewhere in the middle. You've first got to consider how many layers you'll tend to wear underneath; will you have just a t-shirt then the jacket, or possibly a baselayer, midlayer and then the jacket? When you've figured out your layers and you've popped your insulated jacket over the top, you shouldn't have any dead space inside. The cuffs and hem should be comfortably sealed around your waist and wrists with room to move. You should be able to lift an arm up above your head without the hem of the jacket lifting more than an inch or so, and the sleeves should be long enough that when carrying out the same motion, they aren't mid-way up your forearm. Your shoulders and chest area should have enough room so that your hands can touch behind your back without feeling restricted. 

Additional Information
Lastly, consider which activites you'll primarily be carrying out while wearing the jacket. Are you primarily using it as a winter climbing piece, or an everyday/dog walking jacket? You'll find that technical climbing jackets tend to feature a shorter cut, while urban and casual jackets feature a longer cut to offer additional warmth with less mobility.
