Helix LS Zip Jacke Von Icebreaker

The Helix LS zip icebreaker was lauded as insulation jacket this winter everywhere with Merino Wool. Reason enough even to catch a glimpse of this jacket. Thanks to the mountain enthusiasts, this was no problem, since they have enabled some bloggers to test the Helix LS zip.

Icebreaker Helix LS zip

At first glance the Helix LS zip seemed somewhat thin. But Merino clothing is generally not very bearing and keeps warm anyway. If the Merino Wool but also for an outer layer of insulation is suitable, the test with this jacket should find out but right now. Without big beforehand, I would mention here that the jacket was developed most likely not for the tough outdoor usage, but likely to appeal to the urban adventurers as described in topschoolsoflaw.

The processing is the reason why this review long in coming in. Initially, I assumed that the processing leaves no wish unfulfilled. Just as I wanted to post this article a few months ago, the jacket dissolves. The body seams on the shoulder have taken apart itself, which visually heavily losing the jacket. You read further down in the bottom line why this is a problem!

The design of the jacket is as well thought out and many little gimmicks sweeten wearing one. Unfortunately, the isolation times so not fit to this design.

MerinoLOFT not isolated as hoped.

I’m looking for the raised loft in this material unfortunately in vain. The isolation is hardly given and through the wide cut of the jacket wasted the effect in my eyes even more. Here you may rely on advertisement promises. In a direct comparison to a half as heavy down jacket, the MerinoLOFT loses Jacket by icebreaker clear.

Merino Wool is quite an excellent material and can keep the body well warm. I prefer it however the Merino Wool lying directly on the body or at least closely to wear. Then she can play much better benefits than several centimeters from the body away.

Sustainability

The isolation of the Helix LS zip is made 100% from recycled waste of Merinowoll fabric. The outer shell of recycled polyester. The green image to maintain so efforts at icebreaker. A few years ago promoted the company with the slogan “100% pure Merino”. Who wants to open up new markets must use other materials. Icebreaker is here at least recycled.

Design and Equipment

Despite the suboptimal isolation, the jacket has quite a few Designschmankerl and gimmicks, which absolutely liked me. For example the high collar, whose top seam was covered in soft. What also made me happy was the elastic loop to hang the jacket. How often is there already a rigid cord pulled me out?

The elastic cuffs with thumb holes are nice though, not really fit but for me this jacket. For the inside pocket, contrasting with orange zipper and the excellent flap for the front zipper. Even the zippers in the bags are good against a jammed protected, because here too over stitched has the soft material lightweight belt, so the zipper is not the thin polyester and motionless.

Conclusion

For my taste, especially the insulation performance of the jacket is far too insufficient for a serious bet on a tour.The weight is no relation to the achieved heat output. I got this jacket throughout the winter parallel to theBerghaus Ulvetanna hybrid Hydrodown jacket and to the Mountain House Ramche Hyper down jacket worn. I can recommend both jackets as opposed to the icebreaker of in good conscience for outdoor use.

The icebreaker Helix LS makes sense to me only in terms of lifestyle. She looks good and sufficient for urban activities loosely. Unfortunately processing to requests left at least for my model, which is why she is still limited suitable also for this purpose. It makes me personally though nothing from that the seams unravel. But people who buy this jacket because of the optics, you might be disappointed.
