Helly Hansen Odin Power Stretch Half-Zip Pullover

The Odin Power Stretch Half-Zip Pullover is a Helly Hansen easy wearing Men’s fleece which will have many applications throughout the seasons, writes Mike Gormley.


I am sure, like me, you both need and use a general-purpose fleece that works well as a top in decent weather, as well as looking good and being practical, but which in colder weather will be a good mid-layer.

This Odin Power Stretch fleece, available in blue, dark green or black and in five sizes, is such a garment. It is also good to wear next-to-skin and is soft enough to be perfectly comfortable to wear knocking around home or ski hut after a shower. The four-way stretch, mostly recycled Polartec, material is 84% polyester and 16% elastane. It dries quickly if wet or after a wash so is easy to manage when away from home. It is a pullover garment with a quarter zip to afford some level of venting as required.

This is one of those year-round garments equally at home in winter as it is on a summer evening if it gets chilly.
