Swiss Army Jacket

Qualicom-CIS_0

Helly Hansen’s new Qualicom CIS (Component Insulation System) Jacket is the veritable Swiss Army Knife of winter coats, with its combination of a light insulator jacket made with PrimaLoft Black insulation for maximum warmth and minimum weight that can be zipped into the waterproof exterior shell or worn on its own, offering the ability to control just how warm you need to be. For the days when it’s really blowing and the thermometer is flirting with “why am I doing this?” temperatures, keep the insulator jacket in, pull up the hood, and you’re good to go. For warmer days when you still need protection from the wind and the spray, leave interior jacket in your bag and just go with the shell. The shell is made from a two-ply HellyTech waterproof and breathable fabric with Durable Water Repellency coating and is fully seam-sealed to keep out whatever the sea is throwing at you. A fixed hood, storm flap face guard and hand warmer pockets round out the package. $300. Helly Hansen, hellyhansen.com
