Usage Timeline

Initial Usage

Condition: Excellent

  • Great warmth-to-weight ratio (uses real down)
  • Elastic cuffs and adjustable hem are nice touches
  • Hood is not adjustable—contrary to the info on Helly Hansen’s website
2 Weeks of Use

Condition: Excellent

Been wearing every day as it’s getting cold in Detroit. It’s lightweight and warm, which is a great combo. Although, it’s not the warmest jacket we’ve tested. It works as an outer layer and a mid-layer—we’ve worn it under a shell on a few really cold days.

1 Month of Use

Condition: Excellent

Still wearing this jacket every day around Detroit during the winter and on a handful of weekend trips. It’s not the most compressible/packable jacket we’ve tested, but it’s still lightweight. If we’re taking this on a trip, we’re typically wearing it so it’s not a huge deal but something to note.

2 Months of Use

Condition: Good

Caught an arm on a fence which caused a very small rip. It’s not an issue right now—we’ll see how it holds up.

3 Months of Use

Condition: Good

Have not noticed the small rip getting any bigger, which is a pleasant surprise. This jacket has been holding up well to daily wear and is keeping us pretty warm throughout the winter.
