The Helly Hansen Speed Jacket

The Helly Hansen Speed Jacket

Fast-moving outdoor fans are catered for with Helly Hansen’s additions to its spring 2013 training collection.

The Speed Jacket is an ultra-lightweight windproof and breathable wind shell for the trail and road runner, available in a range of colourways.

The jacket has a strategically placed venting system in the back of the garment to enable air to flow freely between the skin and the garment, creating a cooling sensation and increased evaporation of sweat.

Additional features include 360-degree reflective detailing to increase visibility when running at night, and a chest pocket for an iPod or phone.

The Speed Jacket will retail at £120.

Complementing the top, the Pace Tights 2 and Pace ¾ Tights 2 are made from a supportive micro polyester and spandex fabric with mesh panels to minimise chafing and boost support whilst working out. Selling prices are £55 and £45 respectively.

Helly Hansen’s training collection is made using HH Cool, the company’s most advanced fabric for high-intensity workouts.

HH Cool pulls excess heat and moisture away from the skin to provide a cooling effect that Helly Hansen said is superior to any alternative polyester or natural fibres.

The fabric features two components: Helly Hansen’s Lifa Stay Dry Technology on the inside that is 40 per cent lighter and 60 per cent drier than alternative fabrics, it said; and a polyester exterior that wicks away moisture to keep the skin cool.
