Versatile enough to be used as a mid or outer layer depending on conditions
Hood not adjustable

The Ullr utilises Helly Hansen's well-established Lifa Flow Technology to offer a double-knitted fleece which gives the garment excellent moisture management through its active wicking qualities.

The Ullr has been designed for freeride skiing, so offers a reasonably loose cut along with added weather protection for the shoulders and the hood in the form of a slick, windproof fabric - this creates a more versatile garment since it can be worn as a standalone layer on ascents when you're likely to heat up and then act as a mid-layer on descents.

Features include YKK coil zipped hand warmer pockets and a zipped chest pocket, a non-adjustable hood (the lack of adjustment is a tad annoying), thumb loops on the elasticated cuffs and an adjustable hem.

Flatlock seams help reduce the bulk as well as offering more comfort, and the Ullr has the look and feel of a mid-layer that will give several seasons of service. Indeed, it's not necessarily a uniquely freeride garment - it would work absolutely fine for piste skiing as well as being ideal as an outer layer for cooler summer days on the hills.
