The Womens Viper Hooded Jacket from Haglöfs is a great lightweight softshell option for those days when it is a little overcast but still relatively warm.
The Flexable four-way stretch fabric is highly breathable and has a durable water repellent finish making it ideal for keeping you comfortable and protecting you from light showers as well as keeping the breeze off you without restricting your movement. The hood is adjustable allowing you to cinch it in for extra protection from the wind while the hem also has a drawcord adjustment allowing you to tailor it to your needs at the time.
It has two high set, mesh lined, zipped hand pockets which you can still get full access to when you are wearing your jacket with a harness or rucksack. The pockets are mesh lined to keep the weight of the jacket down but they also mean that if you do find yourself getting a little warmer than comfortable you can just unzip the pocket accordingly and use them as ventilation to enhance the circulation of fresh air thoughout the jacket.
This jacket excels itself during a multitude of activities including mountain biking, climbing and hiking.

In 1914, a forester’s son called Wiktor Haglöf designed and created a backpack that would take him on an amazing journey. Made for the local workers, this original pack raised Haglöfs from their humble beginnings in a cabin, to a world leader in adventure clothing, footwear and equipment.
Today, high quality products are still at the heart of Haglöfs clothing, footwear and equipment, and every item is imagined, designed and tested by people who love and understand the outdoors. This process involves a working knowledge of how clothing should perform and is born from the rigorous demands of the Scandinavian wilderness.
