Helly Hansen Aurora Shell Jacket - Women's



Show Description

Designed for downhill adventures by high-flying pro freeskiers. The Helly Tech® Professional fabric with a Flow membrane and DWR (durable water repellent) finish keeps you dry, warm and comfortable thanks to its serious breathability. Pockets and vents in all the right places are designed to work flawlessly with a backpack. A Recco® advanced rescue system and hi-vis details make you easier to spot in deep snow. Adjustable cuffs, a jacket-pant compatible powder skirt, high collar and goggle wipe round out the features on this adventure-ready jacket.

  • DWR finish, YKK water-resistant zippers and full seam sealing help ensure wetness can't sneak in.
  • Adjustable and helmet-compatible hood has a high-vis brim.
  • Dedicated pocket for your ski pass.
  • Internal goggle pocket has a soft wiping surface.
  • External chest pocket and handwarmer pockets carry small essentials.

A windproof garment does not allow any air to permeate the fabric. A garment with windproof panels has panels of fabric that are totally windproof, but the rest of the garment may not be windproof. A wind-resistant garment resists some wind, but not as much as a garment that is windproof.
