They do a good job don't they? I was surprised when it came back with the flaps etc looking like it was made that way in the first place.

Defo made my Helki into a much more usuable jacket. Still gets a bit warm mind...

Yeah a decent job, tho a long wait mind. It makes me wonder why they don't offer the option from factory!

I think it's because they expect you to buy an Alta instead if you want ventilation. I'm not really sure what the Helki is aimed at given 99% of people doing strenuous walking will need those zips. Dog walking maybe? I'm just pleased they do the zip job or I would have a jacket I cannot use most of the time.
