Helly Hansen Base Layers
Base layers are designed to work as a second skin, maintaining a dry layer next to your body. When doing high-energy aerobic activities, particularly outdoors, too much sweat can be your worst enemy, and Helly Hansen base layers are engineered using the company's unique Lifa Stay Dry Technology, one of the first moisture-wicking fabrics ever created, back in the 1970s. When exposed to moisture, Lifa fibers immediately move it away from your skin, speeding evaporation or moving it on to the next layer. Lifa is also 40% lighter and 60% warmer than polyester. HH Dry material, part of this line, forms the base of Helly Hansen's 3-Layer System, creating a dry layer next to the skin to keep you comfortable during highly aerobic activities in a wide range of conditions.
For more than 130 years, athletes and explorers have trusted their lives to Helly Hansen clothing. Technically engineered and real-world tested, all Helly Hansen garments are fully warranted against defects in materials and workmanship. Should any garment's key features or functions fail due to a manufacturing defect, Helly Hansen will repair it without charge, or provide a replacement.
All Helly Hansen technical outerwear garments (HellyTech, HellyTech XP, and HellyTech O2) are covered by a limited lifetime warranty. Helly Hansen footwear is covered up to one year against defects in materials and workmanship. This policy does not cover normal wear and tear on the product.
About Helly Hansen
One of the most well known outdoor gear makers around, Helly Hansen was first established in 1877 when Norwegian captain Helly Juell and his wife Maren Margarethe started making oilskin jackets, trousers, sou'westers, and tarpaulins, made from coarse linen soaked in linseed oil. Their products' unusual durability and weather protection quickly caught on. The company won a diploma for excellence at the 1878 Paris Expo, and began exporting its products.
Over the course of the 20th century, Helly Hansen led the way in innovating outdoor apparel technologies:
Today, Helly Hansen gear is used by elite competitive sailors, skiers, and outdoor adventurers, as well as those who simply appreciate being protected from the elements when weather's at its worst.
