Haglöfs Announces Triton Replacement
Updated hooded microfleece on the way from Swedish clothing maestros.
Posted: 7 February 2008
The good news is that Haglofs' cult hit Triton hooded
microfleece top is going to be replaced with an up to date version
called the Treble Hood. The bad news is that you'll have to
wait until late summer 2008 to get your paws on one.
The hooded Triton was a bit of a smash hit with reviewers and
buyers alike being a simple microfleece with a neat cut, PowerStretch
panels and a handy hood which was ideal for layering under a shell
When it was dropped from the range, there was much gnashing of
teeth in certain quarters. Fast forward a year or so and the concept
is back with the new Treble Hood.
Deisgned to be as a light as possible, but still functional, the
Treble Hood - above in men's and women's versions - combines
Polartec's PowerStretch fabric on shoulders, sleeves and sides of the
trunk with other panels made from a light but warm gridded
The PowerStretch bits have an abrasion-resistant finish, so you
should be able to use it with a pack for walk-ins, no problem. The
hood will go under a helmet or make a handy hat alternative and
unlike the Trident, there are two useful handwarmer pockets. All
seams are flat-stitched for neat fit.
Looks great in the flesh, and while at £90 it's not
cheap, we reckon that like the Trident, it'll be one of those tops
that gets used a lot.

Just a reminder, the Treble Hood isn't available until late summer /
early autumn, so don't go looking for it now as you won't find

I am relieved to say that the Trident hasn't been used much at all! I don't usually wish to draw attention to typos, but this one had me rolling...
