Hello, I recently bought a Helly Hansen Lerwick rain jacket. I really like the style, fit and overall quality of the jacket. However, the lack of breathability was not acceptable for me. For example, after wearing the jacket for about 1 minute over a basic t-shirt, I couldn't wait to take it off.

In contrast, I have a Burton AK snowboarding jacket, that is heavier than the HH Lerwick, but is much more breathable. I can wear my Burton AK jacket all day and stay comfortable.

I read a review online where someone else complained about the lack of breathability of the Lerwick. The jacket only cost about $100, so I don't mind returning it and spending a lot more to get a similar quality HH jacket with a lot more breathability.

So, I was wondering, are there any HH fans here, who can recommend any particular HH jackets, that have the style of the Lerwick, but with a lot more breathability?

HH high end stuff is amazing.

Burton AK 2L/3L line is pretty much the best burton makes.

It's kind of strange to compare a lower end model of HH to a high end burton.......

I wear burton ak pants pretty much daily from November through May.
