The Haglofs' Quartz Jacket is by no means the lightest softshell jacket available but for a hooded softshell jacket with an insulated inner then it's definitely one of the lightest in that category.
To keep the weight down Haglofs have only added the insulation (Polartec Alpha) in the core sections, leaving areas like the back free - this area would be covered if worn with a rucksack anyway.
Now the hood is going to be a love or hate relationship for some. The hood itself is good with a reinforced peak and the usual pull cords. However the adjustment at the back of the hood is on the outside. This is good for saving weight as there's less fabric used to do so, but we don't think that it's as effective for reducing unwanted volume.
