And sun came out temperature was about 65 so left the jacket on to climb a decent hill and see if I would overheat and for the most part was impressed with the jacket would I use it in temperatures above 65 probably not.also as others have said itís by no means a cycling jacket but for my commute to work will be great addition to what I already use. For the price I paid am extremely happy with the jacket . If I were to have paid full price or even half price that jelly Hanson website has it for maybe not so much but will see on a full rain ride how it is . So I would like to thank Mac and polar for the posts . Or I would of missed out on a great jacket for my needs
Now, the Helly Hansen pant that goes with the Vanir Slidr Jacket that completes the outfit, is called the Odin Skarstind Pant. It is constructed exactly like the jacket and has all of the performance features of the jacket. It is also very pliable and you can cycle wih it easily. It is not on sale at Helly Hansen at all, $275. It is somewhat on sale on Amazon, $151 and up. I got mine from HH 2 years ago for $80. So they do go on sale. With Summer approaching, you just might catch them on a deep sale if you monitor both websites. The pant is just as great as the jacket, which you have found out about.
