Adventure means movement and being happy when you are active.
So, staying warm and dry is a big part of ensuring a fun time is had. Gear can be expensive and so adding your choice to the Christmas list is a smart move.
Leading outdoor specialists Rohan is renowned in the business for great gear at reasonable prices.
A brilliant way of keeping warm and dry without wearing too much heavy clothing, is to try the Rohan Helios Vest, which retails from £130.
Available in men’s at 285g and women’s at 265g, the vests are light enough to wear, but are super comfy and dry.
It’s the perfect addition to any winter wardrobe and is lightweight and breathable. Designed with 100% recycled polyester Insuloft insulation, this high-performance warm layer will shield you from the cold whether you’re heading into the early morning chill for a dog walk or climbing into colder temperatures at the top of the hills.
Insulation is body-mapped in key areas for increased performance on the chest and rear panels. A membrane is bonded to the insulation to keep moisture away from you, ensuring comfort on your most active days.
The tough ripstop outer fabric has been treated with a durable water repellent finish, protecting the user from any unexpected light showers by encouraging raindrops to bead up and roll off instead of soaking into the vest. In heavier rain, the vest is the ideal mid-layer to wear under a waterproof shell.
The brushed tricot lining adds warmth to the two zipped hand pockets and extra comfort to the back of your neck. The elasticated armholes ensure total freedom of movement, and the adjustable hem means users can easily customise the fit of the vest while on the move.
With three secure zipped pockets, one of which doubles as a pack pocket, the on-the-go essentials can be kept safe and close at hand.
With a drying time of nine hours and coming in various sizes and colours to suit everyone’s need, the vest is a must for all outdoor enthusiasts.
