Helly Hansen Zero G - Midweight Jackets: Reviews

Why It's CoolIf you're planning on hitting Costa Rica's Arenal volcano—or any rainforest from B.C. to Brazil—this is what you want. Ditto for changing a tire in the rain. » Thanks to its slightly longer cut, your thighs stay dry, too. » Two-layer construction—nylon laminated with a proprietary waterproof-breathable membrane, plus a mesh liner—is something you don't see much anymore. Too bad: When your outerwear starts turning into its own humid microclimate, that mesh really hustles away sweat. » The hood is simple and spacious, with a drawcord running through the brim and another to snug it down. » The Zero G is roomy but not blousy. No one will mistake you for a monk.

Hmmm . . .On a jacket that you'll likely be wearing zipped up most of the time, it'd be nice to have a microfleece patch at the chin.
