Helly Hansen Alpha 3.0 Jacket

See all pictures

There was an upgrade for this jacket that consisted of a life pocket placed in the chest area to keep your phone operating for longer in colder climates. This and other features make this Alpha 3.0 jacket stand out from the crowd as a premium piece of clothing. One of those features is the H2Flow technology that keeps your body warm, dry or cool in accordance with what’s going on outside the window. A facilitator for warmth is the Primaloft Insulation that is able to evenly distribute the needed temperature across your body. This is straight out of movies where technological advances are out of the 22nd century. As if both of these technologies were not enough, Helly Hansen made an effort to incorporate a yellow-colored HI-VIS hood brim for additional visibility in mountain conditions. Simply fold back this neon extension of the hood when it’s not needed and walk around town in a transformed into a casual everyday jacket.
