Helly Hansen kindly gave him a HH JR Drysuit to try out.  Here’s his first review…

Greenland NUKA Paddle
02 Oct 2017

Until recently, there seemed to be an established ‘them and us’ attitude between kayakers that used Euro style paddles, that’s to say, paddles with large, oval paddle blades, and Greenland paddles, with long slender blades modelled on traditional Greenland Inuit wooden paddles.

The Helly Hansen Odin Flow Jacket is part of their top end ‘Odin’ series aimed at professionals and serious users.  The latest fabric technology and design features can be found in this range and the Odin Flow is no different.

Chatham Bounce Deck Shoe - Tan - 2017
16 Aug 2017

The Bounce deck shoe is part of Chatham’s new Sole Spring range which uses tri-density 3mm memory foam for maximum comfort.  Which sounds great but how do they feel?

The first thing to notice is the weight.  They’re light, very light.  They’re also very comfortable.

20 Jul 2017

The Helly Hansen Crew Jacket is a great multi-purpose jacket.  A solid performer for when the weather turns a bit chilly.  Its 2-ply construction with DWR treatment ensures it stays waterproof and windproof whilst remaining breathable.

25 Jan 2017
The HH 5.5M blend the performance of a sailing shoe with urban styling and would look just as at home pavement pounding in central London as they would on deck, broad reaching out of Lymington.

Helly Hansen Salt Power Jacket
19 Nov 2016

The Helly Hansen Salt Power jacket is a no nonsense breathable waterproof jacket aimed at the powerboat market but equally at home on dry land.

It's a great looking jacket and is cut well to allow freedom of movement without becoming bulky.
