This high tech jacket by Japan’s MACKDADDY and Norway’s Helly Hansen includes all the seafaring technologies you will find on outfits of sailors competing in the Volvo Ocean Race, the most grueling and dangerous yacht race circuit (5 have died in its 32-year history). With breathable yet water-proof material specially developed by H/H called Helly Tech-XP, where the fabric is weave to a triangular pattern to provide the utmost durability. Offset openings to prevent moisture penetrations. Further applications can be found underneath. All seams are taped and reinforced with Gore-Tex and the entire is lined with another layer of breathable membrane. Another interesting aspect are the number of vents. Instead of the usual 2 vents positioned under the sleeves found on most other jacket. Helly Hansen went further by placing a total of 6 vents to maximize the comfortability of the wearer. The MACKDADDY x Helly Hansen high-tech jacket is currently available in limited number at Reed Space.
