Top Customer Reviews
The sleeves are fully lined with a soft nylon taffeta so if you're wearing a short sleeved shirt during warmer weather your arms don't feel clammy, which I appreciate. The rest of the liner for the torso is mesh with a mesh pocket over the right chest (I prefer the left as was on my old Hansen but you can't have everything I guess). I wouldn't minded a full taffeta lining but that would have also made the jacket heavier.
I have 4 water proof jackets, this one, a Marmot Precip jacket from about 7 years ago, a Marmot Sidehill convertible with MemBrain, and a new Marmot Precip with the new nano pro waterproofing. I haven't tried the new Precip yet but they appear to have changed the recipe a bit on that jacket so maybe it's a little more breathable than the older model. I don't think it's fair to compare the Sidehill with the Hansen because the Sidehill is a lot heavier so any subjective measure of breathability is bound to be skewed. The Sidehill is just a warmer jacket with the same amount of exertion. But the Precip and Hansen are pretty comparable in weight so I think there's a fair comparison to be made between the Old Precip and this new Hansen jacket. My subjective assessment is that the HellyTech waterproofing is more breathable than the old Precip's waterproofing.
This jacket is nice looking, fits well, has a soft fabric that is not excessively noisy, that is waterproof and very breathable. For around town and light hiking this is an awesome jacket. The Precip, which can be had at a similar price point has very attractive features as well. It is very light weight. Packs into it's own pocket into a conveniently small package. Has huge pit zips, which are awesome when you're hiking to keep cool. The Helly Hansen does not have pit zips. But it is fully lined, which the Precip is not.
Maybe this is not a fair comparison. Probably not considering I can justify having both. One is a great all rounder and the other is more technical in nature. If you're looking for great value in a light waterproof jacket you won't be disappointed.
Has inside breast pocket but not secure to put anything heavy or loose - keys, wallet, etc. Would fall if active activity.
