Helium Wmns
The Helium II is still everything you have grown to expect from the Helium with added length and extra stretch. LIghtweight and compactable, the Helium 'fur' is 15% lighter and 30% more compactable than a standard Polartec®200 garment. The long fibres will not pill or shed making this jacket extremely durable. The ideal warm layer for travel and back country adventure when warmth, weight and storage space is critical.

Warm machine wash using mild detergent. Make sure detergent fully dissolved in the water before adding clothes.Line dry inside out. Do not use bleach or fabric softeners. Do not dry clean or iron. May be tumble dried, cool setting only, for a very short time. For best results wash separately as fleece will pick up lint from materials that shed such as your lovely fluffy towels. If this does happen, lint can be removed using the sticky side of packing tape or a lint roller. Fabric softeners reduce the moisture transfer and breathability properties of the fleece by coating the fibres with a lubricant.

Fabulous jacket in a glorious colour
This fantastic jacket would have to the favourite amongst my stable of ESS garments.
It has a great weight to warmth ratio, and although it isn't particularly windproof, under a light weight shell, it is incredibly cozy. It has an extra layer of fleece across the front, which adds to this. Well positioned pockets and a really snug collar make it extremely comfortable to wear...and I wear it a lot, both on the mountain and as a casual jacket, because it is smart and attractive. What's more, the fabric hasn't pilled or worn with washing as some of my other 'long fibre' fleece jackets have. It looks as good now as it did when new, and this after a lot of wear, and a lot of cycles thought the washing machine. And I love the colour- a really rich ruby red. Its really worthwhile investing in one of these jackets! Review by Pat Deavoll / (Posted on 18/08/2014)
