It’s that time of the year again that we start to look at gear specifically for the coming winter months, and a good “Safe Zone Jacket” is one of the things that we place high on our list of must haves!

What do we mean by a “Safe Zone Jacket”? Pretty much exactly what the name would suggest, a jacket that can be kept back in the Safe Zone to throw on for immediate warmth and comfort when we come off the field with a head of steam up!

The first jackets we’ve been looking at closely is the HELIKON WOLFHOUND HOODIE JACKET; made from lightweight and durable 100% WindPack Nylon shell with additional Climashield® Apex™ insulation, the Helikon Wolfhound Hoodie Jacket features hard-wearing YKK main zipper with glove-friendly zip pull, chin guard and warm stand up collar and multiple zipped pockets.

The thinner elasticated VersaStretch fabric in the armpits area improves air circulation and provides the maximum comfort of wearing. In addition to that, the left hand loop panel allows to attach custom patches while the elasticated wrists and bottom hem ensure maximum body warmth. Highly recommended for security and armed forces personnel, the HELIKON WOLFHOUND HOODIE JACKET is also a fantastic choice for camping, trekking, outdoor and hiking activities.
