Beware: not like the picture!
I waffled between 2 stars and 5 stars for this jacket and decided on 4 due to its usefulness. I ordered this jacket a month ago and received a similar product, but one that has some key differences from the jacket pictured. The logos are in different places, some spelled out (which I can't find on ANY HH jacket sold anywhere else), and inside it says "mountain professional series" which is a phrase not associated with ANY official HH jackets on-line except for some on e-bay, which is very strange. You'd think, if HH actually manufactures a whole series of jackets called "mountain professional" there might be evidence of such somewhere other than e-bay.
In addition, backcountry.com, though I have tried contacting them twice via chat conversations, has had absolutely no answer to my query.
So! I hesitate to recommend this jacket as I'm not sure what you'll receive. Is it really Helly Hansen? Some alternative Helly Hansen brand? Something they only manufactured for a short amount of time and backcountry.com is just trying to offload old stock? I have no idea.
In terms of appearance, it seems great. I had one of these before, lost it, and bought this to replace it because I loved the jacket so much. I'm 5'8, 130lbs, and M is perfection.
Take this review as you will, but I don't know what I ended up with!
