Haglöfs Spitz 2009

The Haglöfs Spitz general-purpose jacket weighs 506g (men’s L); Gore-Tex Pro Shell, very waterproof and breathable; two Napoleon chest pockets; long pit zips; hood has very large wired and stiffened peak that fits very well. But Napoleon pockets do not allow wearer to easily warm hands; short body length; no external stormflaps; price is high.

Verdict: A high price and Napoleon pockets make the Haglöfs Spitz a specialist purchase rather than a general walker’s jacket.
