Odin Mountain Jacket
Ski over 100 days a year, or at least aspire to? Then check out the Odin Mountain Jacket from Helly Hansen. With exceptional waterproof/breathable construction rated at 25,000mm/22,000g, the three-layer Odin Mountain shell is tested and approved by guides the world over, including H2O Guides in Valdez. Harness compatible, big hood to go over your helmet, reinforced 3D-welded shoulders (a neoprene-based foam laminate) to reduce the wear-and-tear of pack straps, extra-long waterproof pit zips, and stretch HellyTech Pro fabric, this shell is as serious as it gets. But unlike many top-end alpinist-specific jackets, the Odin has a nice subdued style that doesn’t make you look like you’re trying too hard. This year for the first time, the jacket is also available in a women’s version.
