Helly Hansen is the runner’s friend, and the classic design never loses its appeal, but the new range make this solid and essential piece of kit, that keeps you dry, and regulates temperature, even more essential! The pink women’s base layer (pictured) costs, £40, and there are loads more designs for men, women and children. I tested both the base layer and jacket (also £40) on my Tuesday morning session: 6am circuits followed by a two-hour run on the rainy Downs! I kept dry, and didn’t overheat.
