I own a few Helly Hansen jackets. I like the way they combine style and functionality. This seems to be one of the more basic, no-frills designs in their range. There's no insulation in this jacket, just a thin mesh lining under the waterproof polyester shell, which has a slight eggshell sheen to it. It's very light, and can be easily folded up and stowed away in a bag.

There are Velcro tabs on the cuffs, and alongside the main zip, and also on the single inside pocket. There are zips on the two outside pockets. All the pockets have the same mesh lining, which doesn't look particularly strong. The bottom of the jacket has a drawstring adjustment, as does the permanent hood. There is a soft chin guard on the collar for when the jacket is fully zipped up. One small annoyance is that the Velcro on the cuffs occasionally attaches itself to the Velcro on the front of the jacket if my arms cross my chest. Another slight problem is that if you put anything heavy, even a loaded wallet, in the inside pocket, the whole jacket tends to droop on that side unless the front zip is done up.

I bought the small, which is a good fit for me (5'11", 36" chest) when worn over one or two layers. If I'd been planning to wear it over a suit jacket, I would probably have had to go up a size.

Excellent quality - lightweight without reducing the windproof qualities, water runs straight of shake the jacket and it virtually dry

Excellent jacket, fits well and is very light to wear. Recommend it for general use as it is completely waterproof.

This is exactly what I was after, lightweight yet waterproof. The quality seems excellent so far, and it has had daily use the last few months.

I expected there to be a compromise some where with the price being so reasonable but there isn't. It's lightweight, waterproof and looks smart very happy with this jacket

I have just taken delivery of this great lightweight jacket in the Cobalt Blue colour........its very well made and has some useful pockets. I like the integral hood and quality fittings. Its too early to comment on the waterproofness of this jacket but it looks the part and i have every confidence that it will deliver! Fits very indeed and the medium size came up as expected. Recommended!

My husband has worn this same style HH jacket for the past 15 years or so, and insists it's the only jacket he'll wear. It looks good and although it appears to be quite thin, he says it's very deceiving as even in very cold and wet weather, it keeps him warm and dry. Very good price for it too - usually much more expensive on the High St.

Brought as a Xmas gift.
Not tried in rain as yet but hopeful that quality will be apparant.
A little disppointed in size. brought as X-large but seems like a Large. Having not purchased a 'Helly Hansen' product before I will know that in future to go one size up.
Other than that very happy with item and service.
