This is the Odin Mountain Jacket new for Fall 2013. In Norse mythology Odin is the head god and Helly Hansen adopted the name for their elite series of products. it is their premieree mountaining jacket and is made from a proprietary HellyTech 3-layer waterproof breathable laminate. It incorporates Recco avalanche locator and one of my favorite features pit zips.
Below you can see the YKK Vislon waterproof zips. They don’t look like your traditional waterproof zipper and incorporate a brass slider.
Next is a mid-layer piece called the H2Flow.
There are two long vertical zippers on the chest. These aren’t pockets but rather vents.
It incorporates a very interested application of Polartec 200 weight fleece as an insulating layer between shell and mesh lining. They basically cut holes in the fleece to create negative space. This patented process not only makes the piece highly breathable, but air is trapped in these negative spaces left by the removal of the fleece keeping it as a warm air layer next to the body.
