Even non-outdoor enthusiasts should have heard of the Swedish brand Haglöfs by now. Haglöfs stands out with their classic, almost reserved designs, almost as if they value the functionality and constancy of their products over extravagant design. I mean this in a positive sense; it’s exactly this that distinguishes good design from bad, and delivers a particular look and constancy. The brand continues to gain in popularity, so it’s no wonder that Haglöfs not only continues to grow its classic lines, but a year ago brought out a completely new collection.
With the still quite new collection 19Fourteen—the name comes from the year Haglöfs was founded—Haglöfs consciously appeals to a new generation of outdoor enthusiasts. Classically cut, and made with functional and eco-friendly materials, the 19Fourteen collection is not only for the outdoors but looks great too as part of your daily wardrobe.
We want to introduce you to two items from this outdoor lifestyle collection:
The Hede Down Jacket
The Hede Down Jacket is the perfect spring/ fall jacket. Nice shape, classic cut—the way a light down jacket should look. And should the weather get harsher, the Hede Down can also be worn as a middle layer. Though actually the Hede Down will get you through quite a lot by itself.
The matte outer material is made from 100% recycled polyester from Pertex™ and filled with 700 CUIN fillpower down. Also, the Hede Down has bluesign approval, which means you can be sure that the materials used are made according to the highest eco-friendly and resource-saving standards.
The chest pockets button closed, and there are also two side pockets. The left pocket even doubles as a stow pocket to compress and store the entire jacket.
Conclusion: The Hede Down doesn’t just look good, it also keeps you really warm in low temperatures. And the bluesign approval means you’re not only buying a good-looking and functional jacket, but a product that is produced in an eco-friendly way.
