Helly Hansen 2011-2012

18 May, 2011


For over 100 years, Helly Hansen has been making outerwear for those seeking the great outdoors.  Their history goes beyond being cool or core but a determination to give high quality, performance driven outerwear to all kinds of adventurers. The key components to Helly Hansen outerwear are insulation, ventiliation and waterproofing, that create jackets that work with you, not against you.  After wearing HH for years on my outdoor adventures, it was great to finally meet with them at SIA to hear more about the outerwear and upcoming collection for 11-12.

Their mission is to protect and enable professionals that work in harsh environments.  Helly Hansen offers Helly Tech which is their waterproof and breathable technology.  There are three types of Helly Tech:  Professional (extreme protection in harsh conditions), Performance (keeps you in the performance zone) and Protection (for all wet weather activities).

Here’s a sneak peak at some of Helly Hansen’s winter technical (designed for the mountain), outdoor technical (designed for any outdoor adventure) and some sportswear with scandinavian style.
