Helly Hansen Daybreaker Fleece Jacket



There are few things more gorgeous to wear than a Helly Hansen fleece; they are always a great technical cover up before, after or during training, if the conditions require, but when the work is done they are the clothing equivalent of “comfort food” – just plain good for the soul!


The Helly Hansen Daybreaker Fleece Jacket is such a versatile bit of kit that we can’t see ourselves packing it away, whatever the season.  We have been wearing it as a top layer on cooler summer days and it will become a mid-layer as we move into autumn and winter – apparently that's just around the corner, although we are in denial!  Add a Helly Hansen winter base under the Daybreaker and you will be wonderfully warm but for now we are enjoying it over the lightest of summer layers.


The Daybreaker Fleece Jacket is made with Helly Hansen’s 100g polartec, which means it is incredibly lightweight and nicely stretchy, but surprisingly warm and the full length zip makes it easy to get on and off, without the need to remove a hat or helmet (if you are wearing one). 


For a number of the colour options, the zip, plus the Helly Hansen logos on the front chest area and the back of the collar are in a colour that contrasts with the body of the fleece and the overall effect is very stylish.


Helly Hansen Daybreaker Fleece Jacket is an incredibly versatile and nicely styled fleece that is perfect for any activity and a bit of relaxation too


The fit is relaxed – figure skimming rather than figure hugging – with room for layers underneath, while still flattering feminine curves.  The body has a slightly dropped tail which gives good coverage to the lower back and bottom.  The neck stands up six centimetres from the body and gives a cosy, close fit when fully zipped up and Helly Hansen have included two generous zipped pockets.  Cleverly, the internal parts of the pockets are made from a mesh material, so they do not add any bulk to the garment and, when the zips are undone, add some extra ventilation.


Clearly Helly Hansen knew this was going to be a hit because they are offering it in an incredible 14 different colour options, which means you can wear it every day of the week and never get bored.  It is also worth mentioning that the Daybreaker fleece comes in sizes from extra small to 5XL (yes, really!) so no one is going to feel left out here!


Wonderfully versatile, the Helly Hansen Daybreaker Fleece Jacket is a layer for all seasons, comfortable and technical, it looks great and is a big favourite of ours already.
