The Verglas Infinity Shell Jacket

Using LIFA technology, a proprietary Helly Hansen fiber that is lightweight and hydrophobic, the Verglas Infinity Shell Jacket is constructed with a fully waterproof/breathable Lifa Infinity membrane, which is achieved without the use of chemicals.

In addition to the revolutionary membrane, the 3L jacket is built with a recycled face fabric and a PFC-free durable water repellent treatment, delivering the extreme waterproofness and breathability of Helly Tech Professional construction. With Lifa Infinity, part of the brand’s most innovative and sustainable waterproof/breathable technology to date, the Verglas Infinity Shell Jacket offers responsible and superior professional grade performance.

The jacket is also compatible for layering and features a lightweight, articulated construction for a better fit and optimal comfort. Additional features include a helmet and backpack compatible construction, large front pockets with double pullers for maximum and easy-to-access storage, an adjustable hood and a Recco reflector for added safety, enabling the wearer to be searchable to rescuers.

Philip Tavell, Managing Director at Helly Hansen:

“We wanted to design a responsible jacket specifically made for the core performance-driven mountaineers. With the Verglas Infinity Shell Jacket, we’re excited to introduce the next level of responsible waterproof/breathable technology, in a lightweight, PFC-free, comfortable and compatible jacket that delivers on professional grade performance.”

Available in both men’s and women’s specific styles, the Verglas Infinity Shell Jacket can be paired with the Verglas Infinity Shell Pant.
