Helly Hansen launches first complete Verglas 3-layer system for winter 2010
HHelly Hansen is launching the brand’s first complete three-layer system for its renowned Verglas range of professional outdoors clothing for men and women.
Base Layer: At the heart of the Verglas three-layer system is Helly Hansen’s infamous base layer - designed to move moisture away from the skin during high-energy activities to keep the body warm and dry. The Verglas Hybrid Top has been constructed using a combination of HH Warm in the body and neck, combined with HH Dry technology to create a dual purpose mock turtleneck. A hollow fibre LIFA interior traps warmth and keeps the body dry, whilst soft merino wool provides additional warmth. Available in black, white and Tabasco for men, and black, white and fuchsia for women in sizes XS-XXL. RRP £65 Complete the Verglas Base layer system with the three- quarter-length Hybrid Pant, featuring HH Warm in the body and HH Dry along the sides for added ventilation. Available in black for men, and black and fuchsia for women in sizes XS-XXL. RRP £50.
Mid layer: A selection of fleeces and down jackets make up the range of Verglas mid layers. The 700-fill-power Verglas Down Insulator is a lightweight jacket that can be worn effectively as a mid layer or outerwear. Its construction allows it to be easily compressed, enabling it to be stuffed into a backpack when it’s not needed. Available
Vango goes ultralite
Two brand new packs from Vango burst on to the 2010 ultralite scene to help you go further, faster and for longer. With modern urban designs and contemporary colourways the Rapide and Sprint are two welcome additions to Vango’s praised range of rucsacs. An ideal companion for racers, sports enthusiasts and mountain runners
the brand new Sprint (£17) is a bladder pack with a difference. Its sleek design is available in two colourways, a classic black and macaw green for when you need to be seen. For fluid on the move the three litre pack comes complete with a two
litre hydration bladder, leaving room for any essentials in its compact design. Constructed from hardwearing Excel 420D honeycomb polyester with a PU coating, this little pack is hardwearing and durable. To keep the body cool, it features air mesh padded foam on the back
and for ultimate fit it comes complete with a waist strap. Although the design is streamlined the Rapide also features a front zip pocket with key clip, as well as a shockcord accessory attachment web providing extra room for
essentials. When you need extra capacity for essentials, the Rapide (£25) offers a larger capacity sac that shares many of the lightweight qualities of the Sprint. Designed for urban adventure racers and cyclists the Rapide boasts a helmet ‘stow’ compartment ideal for awkward helmet storage when you
park up your bike for a break. Offering 20 litre capacity, it also includes a two litre hydration pack and
uses the same outer materials as the Sprint. For easy access to smaller items the pack features two front zip pockets and
for added comfort it boasts an Air Mesh padded foam back. Available in matching colourways to the Sprint. For further information on Vango’s Ultralite range of products or to find out further information regarding any other Vango products from the 2010 range please visit www.vango.co.uk
