Helly Hansen Men's Breacan Ski Jacket
Designed for skiing but tough enough for snowboarding, the Helly Hansen Breacan Ski Jacket for men is the real deal for full waterproof and breathable performance. Helly Hansen applied 60g Thinsulate throughout the arms while wrapping the torso in a denser 100g Thinsulate for exceptional core warmth. The Men's Breacan Ski Jacket has Helly Hansen's regular fit, so it easily adapts to various thicknesses of performance baselayers and fleece without bunching or binding. Up top is an adjustable hood that can be zipped away and removed if you're skiing or snowboarding with a helmet. The venting system on the Helly Hansen Breacan Jacket for men is a little different from most--the upper biceps feature waterproof zippers on the front and back of the sleeves for cooling. You can reduce the airflow by only opening the front zippers, or completely cool off by opening the front and back to add extra air.

This jacket fits snug but maybe a bit too snug when I stretch my arms out. The bottom front is a bit too high for my liking so when I wear a longer hoodie or shirt under the jacket, it shows. The lower back has an extended area which is good for snowboarding in addition to the skirt. The collar area is quite bulky because of the removable collar material. When it's removed, it's less bulky but it would feel colder due to air flow from the top. The hood is not detachable but it is able to be folded in to the back and zipped shut and out of sight. This does add more bulkiness to the collar area as well so I tend to keep my hood out. When it rains a lot, the rain would collect and soak through the area where the hood can be folded in but it won't get my neck wet. The hood is also very large, to fit a helmet under most likely. This jacket is fairly warm for 60g primaloft. When I wear just a tshirt under, it's not too warm and the pit zip vents irratate my arms. So it's best to wear a hoodie or fleece as a mid layer to be very warm. I like the design and colours of this jacket. This jacket is waterproof to what it says (15mm) of rain and after that, it starts to almost soak through the shell but won't go through the entire jacket past the insulation. Overall, I like ths jacket because I like the snug fit of it making it comfortable. It's waterproof as long as it's not raining too much and warm depending on your mid layer.
