FS: Birds Of Prey Helly Hansen Swift Jacket, New with tags, Small

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

This is the jacket that was provided to the course workers at the Fall 2012 Birds of Prey WC races at Beaver Creek. You can't buy one of these. Unfortunately, if you're among the last in line when they are handed out, the popular sizes are often gone, and in some years the ordering is a bit off. Not enough XL's in 2012, and a lot of smalls! I had hoped that this would fit somebody in our family. Too small. It's a true to size Small in a regular cut. 

 

The Jacket is a HH "Swift" model. Nice garment. Color is Alert Red. Backcountry has this on their site at $300, and that seems to be the going price for these. It's lightly insulated with 60g Primaloft warm core. 13,000 mm waterproof. Nice pockets. Removable hood.  Snap up power skirt. Pit zips. Collar lined with very soft fleece like material. RECCO. 

 

Birds of Prey insignia is on the right chest. Nicely done. It's obviously brand new, unused, etc. 

 

The members of the Talon Crew who ended up sized correctly love this jacket, so much that this year's group were provided with the same coat in green. Really versatile, in all kinds of weather. I'm planning on buying one in a much bigger size, minus the BOP signage….sadly. 

 

$175, shipped. Please PM me with questions or for more details. Thanks.

OK……Now $150. Half price. Great jacket, and it has the BOP logo. 

 

Anyone? Thanks!

Bump…..

 

$135……..??? 

 

Check these out, check reviews, etc. It's a great jacket, warm, waterproof, versatile. $300 "real" price at places like Backcountry. And as mentioned, you can only get one of these, with the BOP logo, if you worked at the BOP WC races. Unfortunately we have NOBODY in our family who's a Small! 

 

PM with any questions. Thanks

I would fit it, and I do like it, but don't need a jacket right now (and do need $135). Bad timing. Agree it's a good deal.

Bumping, and reducing price to $125, shipped.

 

Great jacket for spring. And pretty unique. Surprised it has not sold…….

Bump. I guess good things really do happen to those who wait. 

Price reduction. $110 shipped.

 

This is a GREAT jacket. If it fit anybody in our family, we'd be wearing it. MY son has a friend who just signed with HH, and he loves this jacket model. He said it's like a Swiss Army knife….it does everything. 

 

Plus, the Birds of Prey stuff is pretty cool. You can't buy one of these. These are provided to the Talon Crew, the organizers and the officials. So it's pretty unique. It's a $300 coat.

 

This is an adult Small. I would say that it's true to size….Small. Would be a perfect spring coat for that teenager in your house!

 

It needs to leave OUR house!!!

 

Thanks!

Bump. As I've mentioned above, great jacket…..without the fact that it's an official BOP issue coat. 

 

$95, shipped. 

 

Otherwise, we'll wait until the fall…..before the BOP series takes place!  Thanks!

Bump, once again. Great jacket. NWT. Can't be purchased. Can only be earned as a Birds of Prey Course Crew worker. Every ski racing kid in Vail seems to have one of these, earned by Mom or Dad…..and I can't sell this one for $95, shipped? 

 

My brother BOUGHT the same jacket {minus the BOP signage} for $300, and it's his favorite jacket {and he owns a ton….skis 100-120 days a season}. If we had anybody in the family who this would fit, we'd keep it. 

 

ANYBODY?
