When a brand boasts a 140-year legacy to back their products, you can buy with confidence. Established in 1877 by Helly Juell Hansen and Margrethe Hansen, a sea captain and his wife from Norway, Helly Hansen has become synonymous with the creation of apparel that allows wearers to brave the harshest weather conditions this planet can offer up.
User confidence is so strong in their range of ski jackets, ski pants, snow gloves and snow boots that they are now found in more than 200 ski resorts globally, with an estimated 55,000 ski professionals placing their faith in Helly Hansen to keep them warm, dry and comfortable. Technology development has been crucial for Helly Hansen in cultivating such a positive worldwide reputation. Helly Tech is their material of choice when constructing the outer layer of their snow jackets and snow pants due to its threefold capability of remaining waterproof, windproof and breathable in varying weather conditions. LifaLoft is an insulating material developed in conjunction with PrimaLoft which, when used in Helly Hansen Ski apparel, allows for greater warmth whilst remaining lightweight and comfortable.
Helly Hansen integrates LifaLoft insulation into their ski jackets in conjunction with the H2Flow temperature regulation system to ensure that body temperature is able to be easily regulated regardless of the activity being undertaken. The H2Flow system incorporates ventilation zippers and air pockets to aid in cooling or warming the wearer depending on their personal requirements. All of these features work collaboratively to ensure that any skier or snowboarder will find a Helly Hansen garment waiting to fulfil their snow apparel needs.
