    1. Great Fleece for the priceReview by
      XXL reviewed

      Thick material.
      Well-made and heavy duty fleece. Slightly too large to fit under a rain coat of the same size (xxl). Quite warm nevertheless.

      Double zips.
      Handy double zips at front. The lower zip enables easy access to trouser pockets, anything stored on belt. Personally I use the lower one on my mountain bike so that the jacket doesn’t ride up.

      Elbow pads
      Tough elbow pads to protect from scratches. These aren’t padded though.

      Large hood
      Hood can easily accommodate a winter hat and maybe a climbing helmet at a push. No a cycling helmet though.

      Lots of pockets
      2 Map pockets at rear.
      2 chest pockets (slightly too high imo)
      2 Bicep pockets
      1 left forearm pocket


      Cuffs very tight
      The cuffs are extremely tight. I wear a Garmin Fenix watch and it’s an extremely tight squeeze. On more than one occasion the cuffs have pressed the button on the watch. If you are wearing gloves these would have to fit over the cuffs as opposed to under.

      Velcro grips are long enough.
      The Velcro straps on the cuffs only just reach the Velcro and are pretty useless because of this.

      Inside pocket not a pocket!
      The outer chest pockets have a lining on the inside of the jacket. These look like internal pocket. I slipped my phone in the top and it fell straight out of the bottom, so not a fault, just something to be aware of.

    2. Good very sturdy dense fleeceReview by
      I bought one of these last winter and I have found it to be very warm, the material is dense so windproof to a greater extent than lighter fleece material, not quite windproof but definitely keeps more wind out. The size was spot on for me, I am reasonably broad across the shoulders and there is plenty of room in the shoulders and arms. Lots of pockets. My only critisism would be that the side pockets are too high to be comfortable for hand warming, although you could use them for that if in dire need, it wouldn't be comfortable to walk around with one's hands that high up, so I wear gloves, no problem. Other than that I would say a warmer fleece than the equivalent money would buy you in many other mountain specialist makes.
      Brilliant service from Hennies as usual of course, my best source for knives and gear, delivered super fast to my door. Good for advice on any related subject too.

    3. Just buy it!Review by
      I'd had a lesser manufacturer's black, hooded fleece for about 12 months when, as every review of the product had told me the zip failed! I originally looked at the helikon patriot but cheaped out. My advice to anyone reading this is don't. I've had the patriot for 2 days now and it's perfect. Great zips, pockets are large enough without being silly, so comfortable and feels hard wearing but I suppose time will tell on that one. I'm 6'2" and 14st ish so the xl was bang on for me with room for a big jumper as well. Not my first Helikon product but can't believe I didn't go for this in the first place. It's very, very good! (Posted on )
    4. Not bad, but too expensive. Review by
      Pros: wonderfully soft, warm and practical as a summer jacket or winter under layer.

      Cons: a cold wind will find its way through at the elbows, armpit and neck area, front pockets are too impractical for hand warming and not much use for anything else. Far too pricey, especially when you compare to ex-military kit.

    5. Excellent Spec Supplied by the Legendary Heinnie Haynes TeamReview by
      I have been utilising mountaineering and general outdoor gear for decades and remember well when Fleece and general Polartec material really started to be accepted by Mountaineering professionals. Over the years there have been many variants on fleece garments, some really good innovations and some very poor attempts in so called outdoor gear. This HeliKon-Tex Patriot Heavy Fleece is a fine example of a well made, versatile heavy duty fleece. Note the wording heavy, if your focus is on light weight materials and outdoor kit this may not be for you, for all others this is a must buy and is one of the best fleece jackets i now own. The price is really good and backed up by the outstanding service The Legendary Heinnie Haynes Team provide relentlessly. Ordered late Sunday night-delivered early am Tuesday. (Posted on )
    6. Great warm fleeceReview by
      Well first off? This fleece is really warm if your on the move all the time? And even if you're not it's still a very warm fleece, I like all the pockets in it, great for carrying all of my stuff phone , keys, bits and pieces!! Have worn this out in some very strong wind and I was only wearing a thermal top on underneath it, and was really warm, the fit is a bit big but that's great for layering up as am only 5ft 3in tall so a small fits great on me? Overall am loving this fleece will have to buy a couple more in different colours , well recommended. (Posted on )
    7. good!Review by
      Receive this today! Very warm very comfortable. I'm 183 cm and 90kg, large fit me well except the shouler are a little bit wider. (Posted on )
    8. Great ValueReview by
      Ok so this short review is only a preliminary as I received it this morning but have been wearing it all day.
      Sizing - There seems to be a lot of wondering about sizing as Helikon site seems to be way out (lost in translation somewhere i suspect) . Ok so for another example on sizing I am 5'10 42 chest I took a gamble and ordered a Medium it fits perfectly. There,s enough room o fit a few layers underneath if needed and it fits well with just a Tshirt underneath.
      The product itself seems well made and on the one I received the stitching all seems in good order (something to watch out for with helikon its either good or its falling to bits). As a fleece I would say its a Medium/heavy fleece rather than a heavy.
      Its a nice design and nice fit plenty of pockets.
      The only gripe I have is one that's been mentioned before as its a hoody type fleece my immediate thing to do is to put my hands in the non existent waist pockets, its not a massive drawback but had they put a couple of hand height pockets in this item would be a 5star.

      Overall for the money you wont get a better hoody type fleece than this.

    9. Second skinReview by
      I bought this on a visit to HH about six months ago, I have always wanted one of these, but held back because they seemed to only go up to a 3xl where I am always a size 4 or 5xl 56inch chest, Rich at HH was as helpful as ever, he gave me one to try on it fitted like a glove (well a fleece actually) I was astounded to see it was only a 2xl so bare this in mind when sizing.
      Now the jacket itself, I used to carry a bag around with me certainly during the winter this has been my EDC jacket I've ditched the bagand carry everything in this bad boy, keys,wallet, phone,earphones, notepad & pen, medication (insulin)and blood testing kit, and it doesn't look like you've got anything in it and its lovely and warm. I will be buying all my recreational clothing from HH.

    10. Very pleased!Review by
      First fleece type jacket I have bought in many years. After trying on a 2XL, Heinnie ordered a 3Xl which fits perfectly - being larger than average. Heinnie's postal service was super fast, being about 15 hours from Email to delivery. I particularly like the hood which fits well and turns with your head and that peak makes a world of difference.
      Very pleased with this product and would recommend it to anyone.

    11. Patriot Fleece in Jungl Green.Review by
      This is my 2nd patriot flleece from HH what good value for money this is,coupled with EXCELLENT customer service and delivery its obvious why HH are always my first choice for gear. (Posted on )
    12. Great ProductReview by
      I bought one of these jackets to wear whilst working outside and general day to day cold wear.

      Generally very impressed with item. Its warm, even with just a tshirt under, and seems to do what i wanted it to do. Not tested in extreme cold yet but sure i will be over the coming months.

      The only thing i would say is the small is too small (74 kgs 5ft 9) and the medium is a little baggy for my liking.

      Great service from Heinnie on the swap of size from small to medium - super fast delivery and exchange.

    13. you won't want to take it offReview by
      I'm 6 foot and just shy of 14 stone and the large fits me well. Real warm and comfy, and when layered with a good outdoor coat you feel like you could withstand serious weather. Hand pockets all over the place, too. My only minor gripe is that the hood looks a little weird, but it feels great on. (Posted on )
    14. Worth the money? Definitely.Review by
      I just received my Helikon Tex Patriot Jacket, Size M in Coyote. Ordered yesterday, and with me today. Usual outstanding service from Heinnie.
      I took a while ordering because there seemed to be a debate on the sizing of Helikon, especially this item.
      I am 5' 10" and slim to medium build (11 1/2 stone) so I eventually went for the medium which is what I would usually order in just about everything. In view of the comments, I was worried that it might be too big.
      For me this is perfect. I didn't want a fashion item, rather, a warm heavy duty hoody for wearing around camp in the evenings. It is a wide and loose fit, and it is shorter in body length than a conventional named high street brand fleece, but, it is functional and comfortable with an outdoorsy/slightly military look.
      There are numerous zip pockets which are great for putting lighters, knives etc etc.
      The hood and high neck are great with drawstrings, and the under arm vents good for a little ventilation.
      All in all a great buy for the money. Very pleased. At the end of the day if you do order the wrong size, you know that changing it will never be a problem with these guys.

    15. Really Great, only wish they did long sizesReview by
      This is a great jacket, I've been using it regularly for a year and its great. The only sign of wear so far is the Velcro straps for tightening the sleeves coming a bit loose.

      I am a pretty slim build, however the medium was a bit too short for me as I have a long back, and it would leave my midriff exposed when raising the arms up! Exchanging it for a large was a simple and easy process (thanks Heinnie) but the fit was a lot less "athletic" and a bit too baggy, but its still an excellent jacket.

      I would definitely buy other colours if they could make long versions!

    16. ReliableReview by
      I've had mine for a couple of years. Worn it all the time. The pockets are superb, hood is great, material has lasted extremely well (still looks like new) vent zips at the back haven't found much use for. The pocket at the back I always keep my trusty fleece under armour beanie.

      Some of the other comments regarding bulkiness are absolutely true. It is a bit baggy especially if slim and tall .

      This fleece is a bit like a German Shepherd. Not the prettiest, not the most expensive pedigree but smart, rugged will protect you through everything and become a trusted companion .

    17. mrReview by
      Good fleece. Nice size pockets. Slightly baggy on me but thays the way I prefer. I'm 6" and medium build. Wear it quite often. It's not a heavy fleece though. Still great piece of kit. Going to get another one. (Posted on )
    18. Helikon Patriot heavy FleeceReview by
      When I read the reviews on this fleece I was very impressed but thats where it ends.I bought this fleece with high expectations to use on the Brecon Beacons, South Wales, UK but the faults are numerous!The sizing at 6'"2 & 15 stone I went for the large - well the arms are massive you could fit your legs in them, way too baggy. The zip on the underside of the arms bad idea the amount of cold air that travels through it makes it hard to keep the warmth in the body length way to short for a large only just made it to my waist!As for it being a heavy fleece its def not.The thickness is very thin.The design of the hood and collar dreadful as where the pull cords are at the front soon as you pull them to make the hood smaller it bunches up making the neck line droop down letting in cold air.I have experienced much better fitting & warmer fleeces for a lot less money.Which I was very surprised at as all the other Helikon kit I have as been really good.Sad the say Helikon as failed this time. (Posted on )
    19. Great fleeceReview by
      Good quality fleece, sizing seems ok I'm 5.7 stocky and the large is a good fit.
      Bought to sit out at night while camping.
      Buy this fleece just so you can buy morale patches to stick on the arms.

    20. BUY ONEReview by
      Not much to add to all the other reviews, but I felt I had to give it a rating. This is a seriously good fleece for the money. I've only had it a few weeks, and haven't washed it, or worn it much, but it all looks good. I'll probably buy another.
      Fantastically fast service from HH as ever.

    21. Good value for moneyReview by
      Good fleece, nowhere near TAD Gear quality, but pretty much unbeatable for the money.

      It's not really a true heavyweight fleece, but more like a very dense midweight++ fleece. Making it very warm and fairly windproof.

      The only flaws it has (IMHO) are:
      - No loop to hang it, and the tag is starting to come loose (I fixed a loop of paracord to it to hang).
      - Material pills quite a bit (at least before first wash)
      - Really cheap/ugly zipper pulls compared to the nice ones on the Gunfighter softshell.

      Sizing is great for me, but then again, I'm a bigger dude (not tall, but wide).
      Skinny people shouldn't whine about the sizing, there's literally 100s of brands that sell gear in their size, but very few that sell decent performing gear sized for us bigger guys without getting a slim or muscle mapping fit...
      (Posted on )
    22. Top marksReview by
      Great product from Helikon, can't fault it at all for the price. It has all the features of TAD Gear without the cost. Big fitting, I'm usually a medium and the small is perfect on me. Once again I salute HH for lightning fast delivery, thanks guys. (Posted on )
    23. tall people, beware!Review by
      The fit is intentionaly baggy, especially the chest and upper-arms. Together with all the velcro and zippers, this causes a lot of bulk, especially when you need to layer over it in bad weather. I find it extremely uncomfortable.

      Tall and slim people, beware of the Helikontex sizing, which is mostly short and wide. Be careful for too short sleeves, especially if you want to order a size smaller! Size medium will probably be too short when you are above 185 cm or so. The cut of their pants is even more problematic as the regular inseam length is often 30.5 inches and long length 32.5 inches (BDU and SFU models).
      Look for other size-charts as those by HH. I think these are not accurate and often indicate a smaller size than the actual model. Sorry HH..

    24. Why did I…Review by
      Why did I not have one in Afgan! Best fleece I've ever owned, very close in feel and design to the old RM Swazi tops. (Posted on )
    25. I am a convertReview by
      Love it! This is one of the best fleeces I've ever had. It's construction is excellent, the fleece is of such a tight weave it hard let any wind through no matter how blowy! It's warm, durable and robust. I liked it so much I bought another one as well - and three sets of SFU trousers as well! (Posted on )
    26. Patriot FleeceReview by
      Helikon suggest that this is a heavy fleece. It would be more accurate to describe this as a mid weight fleece that is finely woven, giving a dense well made feel. Having said that, the product is well made, loads of storage pockets, the fit is big so order a size smaller than your usual size. Great service as always from HH so overall, very pleased, worth every penny! The warmth comes from the quality of the fabrics used, yet to give it a workout on a really cold day, but I would expect a good thermal base layer may be needed! (Posted on )
    27. Some things to noteReview by
      Based on the reviews here I got one of these.

      Some things of note.

      Even though you can see in the picture the front pockets are high up, once it arrived I found them to be a little too high.
      There is no where to put your hands in pockets comfortably unless you like them higher up on your breast.
      Ironically, the rear pockets on the backside are at the bottom where they would normally be on the front.
      This is quite a big deal for me.
      When outdoors and not doing anything with your hands the ability to stow your hands and arms away instead of hanging loose is restricted to an awkward position.

      Jungle green which is what I got is practically black with a green tint. Black outright in some light. This was fine with me but for others maybe not.

      Lastly, I am medium and I got medium but I was worried it might be too big as some have said here but its fine, only a tad loose with room to wear jumpers etc underneath.

      If not for the pocket problem would of been 5 stars.

    28. Great fleece!Review by
      For the price this fleece is incredible. Very warm indeed, was wearing it on top of Snowdon last week, and it was cold up there but in just this and a t-shirt felt toastie warm. Well designed pockets, comfortable hood and good elbow patches make this a great heavy outdoors fleece. (Posted on )
    29. 4 May 2014Review by
      Excellent product extremely durable and very practical with Zip Pull pockets on every side of the jacket making is a great place to store your various items and other good touch is to reinforce patches on the elbows this product is built to last. I am 6 foot two and 14 stone I usually take a large or extra large in nearly jacket/Fleece but listening to the reviews I opted for the medium size when it suits my frame perfectly. The only reason why I'm not giving this Product five star is is that I just do not like wearing a hood that cannot be tucked away it really takes away from the clean cut image of the overall style of the jacket and it cannot be removed! (Posted on )
    30. It was true...Review by
      After reading the other reviews, praising this fleece, I was starting to be sceptical. No fleece can be this good/great/amazing etc.
      I was wrong.
      It was true. Best fleece for the value. Period.
      (Posted on )
    31. Superb fleeceReview by
      The Patriot is a superb jacket for an almost unbelievable ú50! It's easily 3 times as good as my Jack Wolfskin Blizzard which is 3 times the price! Heavy weight but not excessive, packed with features, high hood which keeps the heat in round the neck when down, the double-zippered rear pocket has been earmarked for certain kit already and a great tactical feel and look. Awesome. I'll be buying another incase the missus decides to 'borrow' it. As other reviewers have said, the sizing is large. I'm an XL in every jacket I own and a L was fine with the Patriot. Buy one, you can't afford not to to be honest! (Posted on )
    32. The BEST fleece I've EVER bought!Review by
      I've owned several high end super expensive fleece jackets, but quite honestly this blows them all away! It is by far the best fleece I've ever owned, in quality & design/features. Awesome jacket! (Posted on )
    33. Coyote PatriotReview by
    34. great kitReview by
      Great quality fleece, loads of pockets, very warm, nice high collar. I never use hoods so won't comment on that! But it does look ok when not in use. Fit is perfect with sweatshirt underneath but sizing is big. I normally take a large but seeing other review got the medium, pleased I did large would have been too big. Style wise very pleasing in the jungle green almost black, wife said it looked smart! My new going everywhere jacket putting my stoneage Helly Hanson fleece into retirement, well recommended. Thanks to HH very quick delivery. zmf (Posted on )

    36. Alternative to TAD Ranger HoodieReview by
      Awesome fleece, really warm, was surprised with the weight of it. I normally let the price reflect on quality of the gear, especially on fleeces and coats, being an owner of some TAD gear which I believe is some of the best gear around this actually stands up to the grade. Plenty of pockets,tTwo velcro patches for badges and heavy duty pads on the elbows...truly this is a mean piece of equipment. Highly recommended. Cracking service by HH as always. (Posted on )
    37. Excellent price, excellent…Review by
      Excellent price, excellent jacket. It looks ok for everyday wear too and I've yet to find a fault with it.

      I've also yet to wear it for the purpose it was bought for, but no doubt it will withstand what little abuse I throw at it.

      If you haven't got one, why not?

    39. excellent jacketReview by
      Fantastic jacket for the money compared with the likes of TAD Gear, sizing is a little on the large side I got a small and it feels a little roomy but I'm not a particularly big guy. Definitely comes highly recommended from me the high collar and high hood make it feel very comfortable too, its a very well thought out product in all :) (Posted on )
    40. great value and performanceReview by
      Highly recommend, unbeatable for the price. Own fair few Helikon products, all well made at reasonable price.

      Fleece is similar to the TAD gear I presume it is based on but at fraction of price so it is obviously not exactly the same. For the money though it can't be beat and no worries wearing it hard.

      Lasted me well and I'm not hammered it as much as other stuff but it's done well still. It's very warm but breathable as you can imagine so you need outer layer in strong winds as it can get chilly. I tend to wear poncho over it in downpours and high winds, or sometimes oilskin drover in downpour through rough areas or where most WP outer would get shredded.

      Breathable enough to wear on warm days but kept me toasty in winter. Pack a windshirt or poncho if it looks like rain but bear in mind it gets warmer with outer shell obviously.

      Okay, so I don't have a Triple Aught at + ú200. But I have one of these at ú50 and have worn it approx 5 days a week since Jan, washed it several times and it has been a thoroughly good buy. I like my cool gear but I also like a bargain; this is one of them. (Posted on )
