The L.I.M Barrier Jacket is a super light jacket filled with Haglofs' own Quad Fusion Insulation to give you a warm, packable jacket with a good warmth to weight ratio. Ideal for minimalist trekkers. 

Haglofs says:

Extremely packable and lightweight insulated jacket. Less is more: despite its low weight, it offers fantastic protection, with its really effective insulation and wind resistant face fabric. Two zippered hand warmer pockets add functionality and space for your essentials.

The Haglofs L.I.M Barrier Jacket is basically a lighter more packable version of the Barrier Jacket. Being part of the 'Less Is More' range means it achieves ultra-lightness by minimising features. It's still insulated with QuadFusion insulation but with just a little less of it.

Quad Fusion is an easy to care for insulation that stays warm even when wet. The insulation is extraordinarily light and packable, yet is ultimately suitable for cold conditions. The outer is made from a superlight yet strong 12D semi-transparent taffeta fabric which obviously won't be as tough as the Fireproof 50D used in the Barrier Jacket but it still has DWR treated surface to help repel water and dirt.

Style-wise the narrow quilting means it's not as bulky as the Barrier Jacket so will pack a lot smaller, as well as being lighter to carry - in fact it's less than half the weight of the Barrier Jacket. The L.I.M Barrier Jacket is ideal for those who are looking for an insulating layer but need to keep the weight and pack size as low as possible.

Be careful using the zip

I purchased this jacket from this website a few months ago and have since cycled 2200 miles on a 10 week bike-packing trip. I used this jacket when off the bike. It was exactly what I wanted and needed in terms of weight, warmth and packability. HOWEVER, be aware that after a few weeks use the zip started to jam and after several weeks use the zip would jam 100% of the times I zipped or unzipped the jacket. It would then take me between 10 and 20 minutes of wiggling the zipper to free it from the material that had jammed in the zipper. The good news is that the material never tore. The moderately good news is that the zipper invariably jammed in the jacket material when I simply donned the jacked and zipped it up without remembering to watch the zip like a hawk and slowly, very, very slowly, zip the jacket up, looking for any sign the zipper was about to snag in the material. However, I sometimes forgot I needed to do this and would then spend 10-20 minutes freeing the zip. Fortunately I was never stuck in a warm place when this happened. But there is of course a high risk of overheating if the zip jams indoors or in a shelter and there is no way to get outside before overheating. If I had known about the jamming zip I probably would have chosen to purchase a similar (but slightly warmer) jacket from a competitor. No prizes for guessing what jacket that is. If you are reading this, don't let my comments prevent you from ordering the jacket (and the other one?) to give them both a try. Just be aware about the zip problem.
