Helly Hansen Women’s HP Fleece Jacket


The Helly Hansen women’s HP Fleece Jacket has been an instant hit with us at Bike Envy – it is beautifully styled, incredibly flattering and just the right weight for a summer cover up.


Helly Hansen HP Fleece Jacket


Helly Hansen have really hit the jackpot with the women’s HP Fleece Jacket.  We seem to be hugely complimented whenever we wear it and sadly we have come to accept that it is probably due to the design of this fleece, which includes side panels in a contrasting colour and fabric.  Visually these panels make us instantly drop at least a dress size whilst from a practical point of view the lighter weight fabric used keeps the core temperature down, while also allowing for wonderful freedom of movement.


The body of the fleece is made from 245g Polartec fleece which gives it a super soft feel and delivers warmth without weight.  There is a lovely high collar which, when the fleece is fully zipped up, protects the neck from drafts and gives the fleece a sporty style.


Helly Hansen have used a full length high quality zip which is neatly stitched with contrasting detail.  Both the navy and white versions use a red zip that matches the red in the HH logo and the stripe on the inside of the collar, whilst the powder blue fleece has a dark blue zip – it sounds like such a tiny detail but the effect is to lift the overall look and it stands apart from other more ordinary fleeces.


Cuffs and hem are finished with white elasticated tape which again adds contrast detail to the navy blue and powder blue versions and there are Helly Hansen logos on the front left chest area and tail.  The very top of the back panel also sports a HH ribbon tab, sewn onto a patch of contrasting colour.  It could be used for hanging the fleece on a peg, but it certainly adds just a little more interest.


The Helly Hansen women’s HP Fleece Jacket is perfect for spring, summer and autumn, or even as a mid-layer in winter – we absolutely loved this fleece and will find a way to wear it 365 days a year!  


Amazing attention to detail and beautifully put together in a slimming design that is as functional as it is feminine.
