    Kvitegga Bib Shell Pant

    $350.00

    BUY NOW

    Manufacturer's Description

    Like the jacket, the Kvitegga Bibs from Helly Hansen are a great solution for skiers who want one pair of pants to wear in the ski resort and the backcountry. Powder POSSE skier Abigail Barronian says the cut is athletic and roomy, but was still flattering. “These are dialed,” says Barronian. “Highly recommended for in and out of bounds play.”

    Made with three-layer fabric, the bibs are adjustable in the suspenders, belt loops, and at the waist. There are two cargo pockets, one big enough for a beacon. A full zip on one side makes it easy to pee in the woods.

    “I’d wear these every day from resort to backcountry to everywhere in between,” says Crystal Sagan. “Comfortable, breathable, full of features, and versatile for type of skiing and weather du jour.”

    Kvitegga Jacket

    $375.00

    BUY NOW

    Manufacturer's Description

    Made with a proprietary three-layer fabric, the Kvitegga jacket is Helly Hansen’s lighter weight shell that doubles down in the function category for both the resort and the backcountry.

    “I’d totally rock this jacket everyday,” says Powder POSSE skier and cocktail entrepreneur Crystal Sagan. “A perfect mix of performance and features for touring (light, breathable) with trendy design to rock it in the resort and look stylish.”

    Sagan especially loved the extra large velcro cuffs on the wrist that were easy to adjust with gloves. The Kvitegga’s length is long and kept her bum warm. A big, roomy hood fit easily over her helmet.

    A couple critiques were made by the POSSE about the zipper, which didn’t fall flat and had a bit of a wave. The fit was also a little boxy, said Powder POSSE skier and NYC-based writer Abigail Barronian. But otherwise, the Kvitegga is an “all-around backcountry, resort bomber shell.”

    One of the more unique details from Helly Hansen this season, featured in the Kvitegga, is their life pocket, which is designed to keep technology, like an iPhone, insulated so the cold doesn’t zap the power out of the battery. Some POSSE skiers found the pocket borderline gimmicky. Others said it actually worked (though the temperatures at Thread The Needle were warm and springlike). Helly Hansen’s signature bright stripe on the helmet-compatible hood will help the wearer stay visible in dark, stormy days.

    Sogn Bib

    $350.00

    BUY NOW

    Manufacturer's Description

    The Helly Hansen Sogn bib has all the makings of a classy, stylish pant that will keep you warm and dry during the harshest days of the winter. Constructed of three-layer Helly Tech Professional fabric, this shell pant is noted for its great cut down the leg and abrasive resistant boot cuffs. The bib, which is not removable, has an adjustable belt and suspenders to dial in the fit around the house that Budweiser built. Stretchy material on the back aids in ventilation.

    Two cargo pockets on the thighs add compatibility to any adventure, and a single hip pocket is designed specifically for an avalanche beacon. Reaction among POSSE members was mixed regarding the neon bright color accents, and some mentioned the lack of breathability. “I sweated the hell out of these things,” said Brit Barnes.

    Sogn Jacket

    $375.00

    BUY NOW

    Manufacturer's Description

    The Sogn is a unique attention-grabber with a styling all its own. Much of that is due to the bright visor stripe on the hood—a notable accent that only the most subdued storm crows won’t love.

    But this all-purpose jacket, constructed with the company’s own waterproof-breathable three-layer Helly Tech Professional, is designed to be compatible with a backpack for aggressive skiing in or out of bounds.

    Ventilation zippers double as pockets to maintain climate control and all your accessories. The chest pocket has a goggle chammy for moist days (or double E’s), whereas the “Life Pocket,” intended to save battery power on your phone, has Primaloft insulation.

    “This is an excellent, lightweight jacket for touring purposes with enough room to layer underneath,” said POSSE member Dane Weister. POSSE members noted the “gigantic hood” was as “big as a Japanese whaling ship, but that’s remedied when you adjust the rear drawstring.” The Sogn also had big wrist cuffs with lots of Velcro.

    Altogether, the Sogn certainly has its fans—as well as its detractors mostly due to the brightly colored accents.
