Helly tends to be smart on details and the new Viz is no exception. As the name hints, this jacket reverses to reveal a day-glo orange mesh-lined body with reflective detailing. The Dyno-Rod van inspired colour scheme makes it a slightly heavier package but, of course, any jacket weighing less than 300g is hardly a cumbersome pack addition. A sturdy approach and generous cut gives the sense that you’ve more than just a basic shell on your back.
