Alpha Shell Jacket

If you're looking for a do-it-all ski shell with everything you need to help you take on the biggest hills and the gnarliest terrain, look no further than the Helly Hansen Alpha Shell Jacket. A non-insulated version of Helly Hansen's popular Alpha 3.0, this jacket is a lightweight alternative for those seeking out heart-pumping lines and side-country pow stashes. The three-layer stretch fabric gives you all of the movement you need when you're hiking to new terrain or bouncing through knee-deep powder fields, and it's also totally waterproof and plenty breathable, ensuring that you can stay dry and comfortable through it all.

You've got plenty of features to boost your comfort and performance on the slopes, starting with a pair of underarm vents that cool you down when you're working your way through some car-sized moguls, and a snap away powder skirt that keeps snow out when you're gettin' deep. The hood is helmet-compatible so you can keep your noggin dry and safe at the same time, and features a foldaway brim for greater visibility in stormy conditions. This jacket also features Helly Hansen's innovative Life Pocket, an insulated pocket designed to keep your phone from dying in cold weather, letting you keep your huge lines well documented. There's also a few more inner and outer pockets, as well as comfortable thumbhole wrist-gaiters that keep snow and wind from sneaking in between your glove and jacket.

Great ski-specific jacket

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: medium

I got this jacket specifically for skiing. Those that long for a an Arc'teryx-style Gore-tex Pro bullet-proof shell, may not be happy with this one. I looked at those jackets as well, but couldn't find one that fit right (I'm 5'6" with a slightly stocky build) and I wasn't crazy about the crunchy-ness of those shells. This one has a slightly 'softer' feel to the outer shell. It's still has HH's "professional" grade waterproof/breathable tech. It has pit-zips, two hand pockets, an exterior chest pocket, *AND* and interior goggle/gear pocket, which a lot of other shells seem to be lacking.
I'm still undecided as to whether I like or am indifferent to the wrist gaiter design. In my mind, this could be a feature that turns off those looking for a shell to use for other outdoor activities.

Does the Alpha Shell Jacket come with the Ski Free Hang Tag that allows you to go on the Helly Hansen website and register for a free lift ticket at participating resorts?

Hey John, unfortunately it does not have the Ski Free Hang Tag. The Alpha 3.0 does and several other products. The link will take you to the particular products that include a Ski Free Hang Tag.
