Super High Quality Garment

I've never owned a piece from Helly-Hansen but I've always heard very good things about them. Well let me tell you, everything I heard is true. This is a high quality garment with the latest ultra-light materials developed for US Special Forces to be extremely light, wind, and sun proof. Helly Hansen added the latest "reflective technology" available which allows the entire jacket to "light up" when it is hit by even the lowest light. This is the lightest material I've ever experienced, and honestly, I had my doubts about how effective this incredibly light jacket would be. The fit is outstanding, the Autumn camp is stunningly beautiful, and it completely blocked the wind and heat of the sun while hiking here in Southern California on about an 85°, 60% humidity, sunny day. The extra long zip in the front allow heat to escape quickly and an air flap vent in the back keeps you cool all day. All in all, this HH product is among the finest garments I've ever purchased and I've purchased a lot of extreme weather gear from KJUS, Jack Wolfskin, Mountain Force, Mammut, and prAna to name a few. I'd match this HH jacket against any of them in a heartbeat. I'll certainly be purchasing more HH gear in the near future (of course the STP price was at 75% off which made the purchase even more of a bargain).
