I expected the Haglöfs Lute Q top to be far prettier than it turned out to be once on. It looks rather like a bowling shirt and the shape didn’t flatter – but that might not be the case for you. The material is suitably cool and comfortable, and it comes with Polygiene odour control to keep you relatively fresh even after a long day’s walking. There are two open pockets with extra venting at the sides but no secure stowage, and the sleeves are too short to protect against the sun in really hot countries.
