Having just got my mitts on the Berghaus Vapour Storm jacket and having loved the Haglöfs Endo, it seems that Haglöfs are upping the ante in the fast and light Active Shell jacket stakes.
Jon’s our man on the scene at Friedrichshafen and hopefully he’ll get us some sneak peak images and first impressions.
Haglöfs has been awarded an OutDoor Industry Award for its new jacket, the Gram Comp Pull. The award will be presented to Haglöfs at a ceremony during the OutDoor show inFriedrichshafen.
The jacket will be released to the market during spring/summer 2013 and this is the first time the jacket will be shown officially. Gram Comp Pull is designed with ruthless minimalism. Every detail has a function and a raison d'être, each carefully selected to take away weight and focus on functionality. The Gram Comp Pullover is the lightest hooded Gore-Tex(TM) Active shell ever made and weighs under 200g in men's size M.
"The simplest things can sometimes be the hardest to create. We combined all our experience and knowledge to engineer a jacket from just two pieces of material for the main body, which saves weight and adds breathability. Lowest possible weight combined with pure function was our goal, and this award is gratefully received as an acknowledgement that our hard work has paid off" - Fredrik Lundberg, Strategic Design Manager.
Haglöfs will be presented with the Outdoor Award in the category Apparel/Shoes/Helmets for the Gram Comp Pull Jacket at the OutDoor fair. The jury, comprising international sport journalists as well as experts from trade and design, chose Haglöfs' jacket based on criteria such as innovation, design and performance.

So that's where the Ozo went then
Canning it certainly looks a lot less random now, because the Endo pull wasn't nearly a replacement but this obviously is and probably an improvement with it. Think we can let a ~15g weight increase pass
