The Helle Women’s insulated waterproof parka raincoat from Didriksons is a feminine and gently-fitting three-quarter length raincoat that is warm, waterproof and breathable. The fabric is a cotton-touch polyester fabric with taped seams – we would describe it as medium weight with a soft touch. The lining is a 100g/m2 padding throughout the coat, giving a good medium level of insulation. In addition, this attractive and practical parka has a chin guard, a two-way front zipper with storm flap. The hem is gently shaped and there is a subtle yoke on the back for an attractive overall style.
We find the fit is generally true to size, with room for a light layer underneath. The Helle has a back length of 87.5cm for the size 38.
Helle is a thin-lined parka with feminine design and a yoke under the chest as a neat detail. The parka has a fixed hood and a high, comfortable collar to protect against cold winds. Helle is made from a soft material with a cotton feel, and is completely windproof and waterproof with taped seams. The parka can be adjusted in the hem, hood and cuffs if necessary and has a inside Napoleon pocket for practical storage. PFC-free water-repellent finish.
Didriksons has a simple philosophy: You do not challenge the elements, you adapt to them, just like Julius and Hanna Didrikson did, as far back as 1913, when they began making work clothes for all the fishermen in Grundsund. For over a hundred years they have been faithful to their founding principle – to make functional clothing which keeps you dry and comfortable regardless of the weather. Perhaps that’s why a hundred years later, it is still the largest Scandinavian brand for rain and functional garments.
