H2Flow-jacket

Helly Hansen is taking personal “temperature management” to a whole new level with its H2 Flow jacket, which can be worn as either a mid-layer or a stand-alone outer layer. The key to the H2, or “Hollow Heat,” flow approach is a series of “exaggerated air cells,” or articulated holes, in the jacket’s fleece layer, which both trap heat when you’re cold and allow you to rapidly shed heat when you’re hot by opening various zippered “air flow ports” in the jacket’s outer shell. The fleece and water-resistant outer layer are also breathable to keep you dry even when working up a sweat. The jackets are available in both men’s and women’s sizes to ensure everybody stays nice and comfy offshore. $175.Helly Hansen
