HH Sk­a­gen race

Yachting Monthly - - GROUP TEST - www.helly­hansen.com

The Sk­a­gen Race look and feel like train­ers. They have good pad­ding, and the thick foam sole ab­sorbs a lot of im­pact when on deck. The mesh up­per is quick dry­ing and has a hy­dropho­bic coat­ing with min­i­mal, seam­less stitch­ing on the up­per. With no holes in the sole, drainage was lim­ited to just the mesh and af­ter 1:30 there was still 350ml of wa­ter left in the shoe.

In spite of the lim­ited toe pro­tec­tion they were very com­fort­able and the ra­zor-cut sole gave the best over­all grip in the wet test.

HH’S trainer-like Sk­a­gan Race of­fers the best grip in the wet
