The L.I.M Crown is an exceptional shell jacket when it comes to breathability. Haglofs have focussed on improving one of the main problems with any waterproof jacket and the results are really impressive.
An extraordinarily breathable and ultra-lightweight waterproof jacket made with resilient, high-performance 3-layer PROOF™ technology. Complete adjustability makes it easy to tweak the fit and draw in extra protection when you're on the go. And a RECCO® reflector adds security and searchability. All of this goes into a jacket that's perfect for high-pulse, high-pace pursuits: durable, protective and laden with features.

Haglofs' L.I.M Crown Waterproof Jacket weighs in at just 184g for a medium size and it provides some pretty outstanding stats. With a good level of waterproofing this jacket doesn't suggest anything other than a decent standard shell, but the breathability levels are amazing. One of the biggest problems with and waterproof garment is breathability, to the extent that many people think their jacket is leaking when it's simply moisture build up from inside. The Crown takes this to another level using 3-layer PROOF fabric for full wind and water-proof protection with amazing breathability.
To keep the weight this low the jacket is made from ultra light 6D fabric so it's not going to last long under a heavyweight, multiday pack. It is however, exceptional for fast and light activities such as mountain marathons. The jacket still comes with two decent hand pockets, adjustable cuffs and a 3-way adjustable hood so it's not a completely minimalist design. The fluorocarbon-free DWR that's used is eco-friendly and does a good job of repelling water and dirt.
