HELLY HANSEN VERGLAS 3L SHELL JACKET £260
Helly Hansen describes the Verglas as ‘a lightweight shell jacket to be used all year round’, but we think the Norwegian brand is doing the Verglas a disservice. Pull the jacket on and, while by no means heavy, it feels like a tough, solid jacket that will fend off whatever the worst of the weather throws at you. With its 3-layer construction, under-arm venting, and sleek yet practical design, the Verglas appears every bit the dependable hard shell that the British mountains demand.
WE SAY Another bomb-proof product from the Norwegian masters of weather protection.
