Helly Hansen Cosmique Jacket – 2014
From the Editors of Freeskier:
Helly Hansen quotes an old Scandinavian saying in its catalog: “There’s no bad weather, only bad gear.” That in mind, the Cosmique and Mission combination keeps you comfortable no matter what Mother Nature has in store. Hefty PrimaLoft insulation in the Cosmique keeps you warm when the mercury drops. The pants feature PrimaLoft insulation in the seat and the knees. Both pieces are 2L, highly waterproof and breathable, with a 17K/19K rating for the jacket and a 20K/20K for the pant which is 100-percent seam sealed. Additional features include a snap away powder skirt, mesh-lined vents at pits and inner thigh and a reinforced bottom hem on the pants.
Paired Product: Helly Hansen Mission Cargo PantThe Pros: Pants are made of beautiful, soft, mechanical stretch fabric that can double as a comfy pillow.
The Cons: Though the Cosmique is in the same category, the Mission jacket-to-pant zip-fusion is only compatible with the Mission jacket.
