Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

I don’t have any adult outerwear from HH (their merino underwear is great) but do have some for the kids (mostly from the K Shelter range) and I’m not too impressed with the durability.

They mostly last one season for my kids before the start to full apart around the cuffs. Scandinavian kindergarten/school over winter is the ultimate durability test!

I did buy my 9year old a new HH down jacket last year which she ripped 2 holes in after 4 weeks and the printed logos started to peel off after 6 weeks as well.

Before that jacket, she had one from Bergen’s of Norway which apart from one small hole (fixed with the included repair patch) it is in good condition. Most of our kids outerwear are in good enough condition to pass down or to sell on but not the HH stuff. All of it have gone in the bin/recycled after.

Bought Sweet Protection (Norwegian) jacket and pants in the sales. Feels top notch. My Sweet Protection helmet certainly is.

Other option for me was Stellar Equipment (Åre, Sweden), but I seemed to be between sizes.

@gaschick, I have 2 Helly Hansen Jackets with the lower performance 'Helly Tech Protection' membrane. I've been wearing one for nearly 10 years skiing and it's been perfect. Always been warm and dry when layered appropriately and it's showing no major signs of wear. The other I use and abuse here for hiking and dog walking in all weathers and again it's great. I bought a Norrona Lofoten Active last year and the glued hem fell apart with one weeks light use (though Norrona did of course repair it free of charge).

Have since bought a new pair of Helly Sogn bibs which feel and look excellent quality, but have yet to wear them for skiing. I'm a big Helly fan - my friend had some of the Ullr stuff last year and was raving about it.

I just did a Google search to try and find out if someone else sold UNTRAKT to see if it was really just a SportsPursuit "Own Brand" ...
Its amazing to find I'm back here at Snowheads again ... we really are the font of all knowledge Madeye-Smiley

Nearly all garments are made in the far east now, and really just designed and specified in west, or am I wrong?

Still don’t quite know why trading standards hasn’t got in touch with them about the claimed ‘sale’ on Untrakt clothing

They are a private-sale website for “members” only. You only see the prices when you become a member and login.

Not sure trading standards can do anything about their “sale” (correct me if I’m wrong) as it’s not open to the public (yes, anyone can become a member!).

Hi all

Any update on UNTRAKT and the quality? I'm looking to buy a hard shell and they have a nice looking one on sale.

Open to other suggestions for a Hard Shell jacket (one that doesn't break the bank either!).

I have used the Untrakt gear for the last 2 years. Before that I have used Peak Performance, Killy etc and paid through the nose for it. The Untrakt gear stands up to the test. I have worn it in Fernie, Whistler, Cormayeur and Tignes. Fernie was -27C. In Fernie I did use my Peak mid layers as Untrakt don't do them. For the price it is very good quality and will last a few harsh trips and has pretty much the same functionality of a known high end brand. I would not hesitate to recommend.

Hi and welcome to snowheads. I found the opposite with untrakt clothing. Quality was pretty poor and nowhere near my high end brand gear. I think at the price point I can search the sales for better quality.

 And love to help out and answer questions and of course, read each other's snow reports.

Thanks for the welcome. I’m surprised by your comment on quality. I have had no issue. Works in all weathers, has never been compromised by leakage etc and is still in good nick around the ankles especially!! Sorry to hear it didn’t work for you.

I got wet pretty quick and a seam started to open. I now use it at work but will be in the bin pretty shortly.

A couple of years ago I bought some Kilpi ski trousers from SP. Quickly split at the crotch, despite not being tight fitting!

No problem with refund, currently have both
Sweet Protection soft and hardshell pants (SP) bomber kit.

Sweet protection is good gear. One of the brands I was thinking of being better quality if found with a big discount taking it into untrakt price bracket.

Got some UNTRAKT pants for my stepson - he loves them. They don't look or feel as bombproof as a high end brand, but they look cool, do the job perfectly well and I don't think you can complain for the price.
