Peak Peformance Heli Gravity Review

With the help of Jeremie Blais, and in partnership with Highline Magazine, Maarten reviews the Heli Gravity Jacket by Peak Performance

With the help of Highline Magazine, we were provided a Peak Performance Heli Gravity Jacket to test.  This do-it-all high performance ski jacket is suitable for backcountry touring, heli-skiing or even just slaying the pow at your local resort.

The bright colour scheme might not be for everyone, but the Euro-inspired styling is to be expected from a Swedish company that has been designing bright clothing since 1986.

Overall both Jeremy and Maarten (despite their vastly different builds) were both very impressed with the jacket, although each had slightly different issues based on their build and height.

The Full Review:

Since the good folks at Highline Magazine were nice enough to loan the jacket out for a couple weeks of testing we're going to send you over to their website for the full review.

The Mountain Moxie team is partnering with Highline to bring you a number of in-depth gear reviews and trip reports, specific to mountain life in the Rockies.

Conclusion:

The Heli Gravity jacket performed well in both resort skiing days and ski touring.

A true do-it-all big mountain jacket for any condition. Its main distinguishing features were a well fitting hood and stretchy cuffs, which allowed our testers to seal themselves from the elements when the conditions became full-on.

Though the Heli Gravity Jacket was sent to Highline/Mountain Moxie for reviewing purposes, this has not influenced our opinion on the jacket. Mountain Moxie aims to use multiple testers for each review, to get you reviews on the most thoroughly tested gear.
