James Gosson is a 10 year old up and coming Optimist dinghy sailor that has been shaking up the Welsh Championships in 2017.
Helly Hansen kindly gave him a HH JR Drysuit to try out. Here’s his first review…
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.
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.
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.
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.
