Haglofs OZ pullover review

March 14, 2009 by · 4 Comments 

The Haglofs OZ pullover (which may perhaps be better described as a jacket) underwent its first endurance test on the 3-day snowshoe trip and passed with flying colours!

Despite its low weight of 193 grams in size XL (180 grams in L), this jacket makes a very robust impression. It is even 100 grams lighter than my old Integral Designs eVent jacket. The OZ is a pullover anorak which has been constructed using the lightest version of Gore-Tex Paclite currently available on the market. This means that the membrane offers absolute reliability in terms of being waterproof and is extremely breathable.

The trunk of the garment consists of only two components. This both saves weight and reduces the number of potential weak spots. The volume of the hood is easily adjustable via a single-hand mechanism.

Further details of the jacket include a 35 cm long water resistant zip and an elasticated cuff with thumb loop. The jacket is tailored somewhat more tightly in the chest area. This means that I need size XL, although I usually only take size L. I can recommend this jacket without reservation and find it extremely attractive optically.

    Johannes,

    Are you aware of any shop in the US that carries this anorak? This is exactly the type of raingear I’ve been looking for and have not found before coming across your blog. Thanks for your insightful reviews.

    I’m considering getting one of these for a 6 day hiking trip (with large rucksack obviously), is it suitable for that kind of use? It looks quite short at the front….

    Cheers for the review

    Hi James,
    I can recommend the OZ pullover even for large rucksacks. Perhaps very heavy rucksacks could be a problem. But I always take the OZ pullover at my 6 day or more hiking trips.
