I purchased the Helly Hansen Vancouver Jacket after extensive research into different models and brands and based on strong reviews. I am a very active traveler who needs dependable and effective rain gear and I have been very disappointed with the performance of this jacket. When it first arrived, I was surprised by how bulky it was, but I figured as long as it kept out the rain, I wouldn’t mind. Although I purchased the jacket on November 30, 2016, I had not been able to really test its performance in rain until several months later, when the rainy season began in West Africa. In heavy rain, I was completely soaked under the jacket. Even in light-moderate rain, I was quite wet in less than 30 minutes. In fact, the jacket did not keep me dry for a single storm.
I own several other H/H products, including a tent and sleeping bag, both of which I am very pleased with. Knowing how reputable the brand is, I expected much higher quality from this jacket. I requested a refund from both Amazon and Helly Hansen, but I was denied. Save your money and avoid buying this jacket. And when buying a new rain jacket, wear it in the shower right away. If it is ineffective, at least you can still return it before it’s too late.

A Helly Hansen winner.2018年6月29日 - 已在美国亚马逊上发表
This jacket is not only stylish but is extremely well made. Has provided excellent protection from wind and rain in recent European travels. You can easily layer with this and the construction is just great. Zippers are amazing and material quality is excellent. This is a winner.

This jacket is amazing and worth the money. One downside - I wish it had an interior pocket. It does not. But the jacket is high quality and the exterior pockets are sturdy and do a great job of holding my iPad mini, even in the rain. The material is comfortable, flexible and solid. And all the "gadgets" like the cinches around the sleeves, waist and neck are low profile and yet easy to access. No dangling cords.

I'm 5'10", 155 lbs, ordered a Medium size. Arms were too long and it was large around the waist. I am returning it, because I think that ordering a Small would make it too short. I also wish the hood were removable or had some way to store it, but it simply hangs out in the back. Interestingly, I also ordered a HH Dubliner jacket in Medium (to compare the two) and that one fits just fine, both in arms and in waist. So there is something strange about this Medium.
