I've heard of them but without details I would be leery of it. if you can find that jacket elsewhere and everything looks good I would go for it.

Helly Hansen a very famous make and they're jackets are often expensive. Id email the seller for more details on waterproof windproof/rating this is a good intro YouTube - How To Buy Snowboard Jackets: Part 1

You've never heard of Helly Hansen??? Are you shittin' me?? Its real deal outdoor wear. I'd generally classify the entire product line along North Face and Mountain Hard Wear. Lines like Special Blend, Planet Earth and Four Square are bush league in comparison.

Seriously? You've NEVER heard of HH?

haha no shit, i thought everyone had heard of helly hanson. Like he/she said, they are the real deal, if its cheap(didn't look at the auction) don't hesitate to buy it, they're good quality products.

Helly Hanson is a big name in the outerwear industry and have been around for a while. My first riding jacket was a HH I got around 15 years ago.

steep and cheap and sites like it have had a bunch of cool jackets for sale this past week and I they still keep popping up. I just got a $250 oakley jacket for $100 and i dont think i could have made a better investment for a jacket.
