I came across the Icebreaker Helix long sleeve, midlayer jacket looking to replace a soft shell I stoopidly lost on by not closing a bag properly!
Now that we have lived in them for a while the testing crew and I reckon they are worth every cent. Just don't lose the bloody thing!
The perfect final layer needs to be
I reckon we have ticked all those boxes with Icebreaker Helix jacket.
I'd worn my Helix jacket for a few months trialling it but it wasn't until Tomaselli, Tontine and I had a week in Tassie that the future was clear. Other rider would reeaaally like these too. They have hardly taken theirs off since. Some bugger talked me into selling mine to him so I have to wait for new stock to come in to replace it.
As most people who have worked out, we don't do cheap... That's the point. No two dollar shop nasties here!
They are hard to get a hold of so stock will come and go. Email for availability and Lady's sizes.
The downside (yes there always has to be one) is that Icebreaker didn't see their way making jackets for bikers.
The largest size is 2XL but, they are a pretty big cut and meant to be worn snug. I usually wear Large in this sort of thing but my Helix size is Medium.
A free return post sticker will come with (email us if we forget) your jacket for exchange or refund. Naturally it must come back brand new, unmarked.
When you take off your Helix you need somewhere to put the bloody thing.
We've made a super lightweight, tent fly, drawstring bag.
Fits Helix, Cloudburst, Rano and Tempest
