Helly Hansen W Welsey Trench Coat- Review

The new Helly Hansen rainwear collection is all about encouraging people to enjoy outdoor activities throughout the winter months.  There’s no such thing as bad weather; just bad clothing. Helly Hansen’s extensive autumn/winter 2015 rainwear collection features clean Scandinavian designs, which will keep you confident on your catwalk, regardless of the weather.

I was sent the W Welsey trench coat to review as I felt that I had enough walking style rain jackets but yet didn’t have a more stylish one to wear.

Helly Hansen W Welsey Trench

The W Welsey trench coat feels nice to wear for almost any occasion, the school run, dog walk or wandering around the shops.  It’s not padded so you do need to layer up when it’s particularly cold however I don’t find this an issue, especially when in and out of shops or even walking the dogs, you soon can become too hot if wearing a too padded coat.

This trench coat offers the wind and rain protection you need from a rain coat, whilst retaining a nice look.  The belt is detachable and I find I prefer to wear without the belt.

You know when you purchase Helly Hansen products that you will be getting quality items that will serve you well.  Already since receiving this coat I worn pretty much everyday I’m that pleased with it!

The W Welsey trench coat is available to buy for £150 on the Helly Hansen website.

    What temperatures are you wearing this jacket in, would it work with a sweater for -1 days?

      This was in Autumn. I wore throughout the Winter too mainly if there was rain, but would put a jumper underneath.
