Abisko Lite Jacket
A light and pliant trekking jacket fit for day trips and general outdoor use, the Abisko Lite Jacket ($250), has stretch fabrication over the back and abdomen for freedom of movement. G-1000 panels at the chest, shoulders, hood and sleeve protect against wind, rain and abrasion. The fabrics provide great ventilation and are also quick drying should inclement weather strike.

Abisko Lite Trousers
The Abisko Lite Trousers ($170), are lightweight and well-ventilated making them an ideal option for summer activities. Stretch fabric covers the thighs for ease of movement, while G-1000 at the knees and lower legs provides extra durability in shrub-filled terrain. Pre-shaped knees and a high cut back waist give extra comfort when squatting and wearing a backpack. Additional features include: two hand pockets, a zippered leg pocket with an interior mesh pocket for a mobile phone, and a raw length for a customizable fit.
Abisko Lite Short
Built with the same stretch paneling at its trouser counterpart, the Abisko Lite Shorts ($110), are an airy trekking short perfect for hot days. The packable shorts have a zippered leg pocket on the right side, two hand pockets and a back pocket for streamlined storage.
