Helly Hansen Men's Odin Mountain Mk2 Shell Jacket
Last winter, we tested 50 ski jackets and the more days we skied in them, the more one thing became obvious: The Odin was our favorite. It was the one jacket that we loved equally on both sides of the rope. It's sleek, light and stretchy enough to wear in the backcountry, with just enough resort-friendly features to make life easy when riding the lifts. - Sam Moulton, Editor, Outside Buyer's Guide
Winner of the Outside Buyers Guide 2011/2012 Gear of the Year award for resort jackets, the Helly Hansen Men's Odin Mountain Mk2 Shell delivers 4-season versatility and uncompromising performance. State-of-the art Helly Tech Professional 3-layer laminate construction provides maximum waterproof, breathable protection from the elements without sacrificing stretchable mobility or lightweight comfort. Rider-specific features - such as the zip-out softshell snowskirt, helmet-compatible hood and Recco reflector avalanche technology - make this a great piece for all-mountain winter pursuits, while the harness-compatible design and 3D welded shoulder reinforcements make the Odin a great choice for backpacking trips and outdoor adventure in the off-season.

Reviews - Helly Hansen Men's Odin Mountain Mk2 Shell Jacket
I am a Helly Hansen Ambassador/Athlete and international mountain guide for Mountain Madness. I exclusively use Helly Hansen products all year, all around the world, alpine climbing and ski mountaineering big mountains. On my recent expedition to the Rolwaling Himalaya of Nepal HH asked me to test the Odin Mountain Jacket. I was psyched to have the Odin Mountain Jacket along. Sometimes there is just no substitute for a 3 layer hardshell jacket. I usually keep a lightweight hardshell in my backpack, such as the HH Guiding Light or Fastpack, for when weather turns really nasty - precipitation and wind. However, on the first ascent of 6611m Langmoche Ri, I wore the jacket the entire time. It was the perfect piece to offer complete protection from the sustained 50mph winds, blowing snow and very cold temperatures. I also found the jacket to be a great ice climbing piece, using it's waterproofness to keep me dry on a handfull of drippy multi-pitch water ice first ascents in the Rolwaling and Yalung Valleys of Nepal. The sleeves are long enough that they do not ride up while hanging from tools. The entire jacket is very trim to keep things light and not get in the way of climbing while the fabric is stretchy and durable to use around ice tools. It is really cool how the jacket integrates with the Odin Mountain Pant to create an impervious outfit akin the the Goretex one-pieces of years past.
