The Essens Mimic Vest is a highly versatile, warm and packable gilet filled with QuadFusion Mimic - a light, lofty, down-like synthetic fibre cluster insulation. Unlike the jacket, the vest version has added stretch inserts down the sides for greater freedom of movement. 

Haglofs says:

Our Essens Mimic Vest is insulated with synthetic QuadFusion™Mimic, which emulates the extraordinary warming characteristics of down but retain excellent performance while wet. We have added stretch fleece side panels for greater ease of movement and a more athletic fit.

The Haglofs Essens Mimic Vest is very light, very packable and very warm, even when wet. It looks and feels like a down jacket, but performs even better when the weather gets rough.The vest features elastic 4-way stretch fleece side panels with excellent wicking properties, preventing any restrictions when your moving.

It's important to note that the 2 front handwarmer pockets do not have any zips, but the vest does feature a large  zipped pocket on the inside for important items such as cash, keys and your phone.
