My favourite layer for hiking — and almost anything. I wear this jacket most days of the year.
I bought 2 MORE Men's Helly Hansen LIFALOFT Hooded Insulator Jackets.
I fear Helly might stop making them one day.
LIFALOFT is not down. It's arguably lighter and warmer.
The idea is to trap a maximum amount of air in a small space. And due to the hydrophobic properties of LIFA®, LIFALOFT has an inherent water repellency that seems to keep me warm, even when wet.
And I've drenched these jackets over the years.
They are light. Durable. Machine washable.
