Helly Hansen New Charger 2010

The Helly Hansen New Charger weighs 400g (size L); Helly Tech 2.5-layer fabric is waterproof and breathable; two map-sized hip pockets; pit zips; additional chest pocket; hood fit and movement are very good. But higher-performance materials are available at this price; access to lower pockets is easily obscured by rucksack belts; hood peak is better on some others.

The Helly Hansen New Charger has a high price tag for the performance.
