Renowned for quality outerwear built on founding traditions, Helly Hansen gear is adored by world-class sailors, travellers and adventurers who need durable performance clothing. The idea for an outerwear brand was born at sea in 1877 when Norwegian captain Hansen and his wife were inspired to produce oilskin jackets, trousers and tarpaulins made from linen soaked in linseed oil. Realizing immediate success, the husband and wife duo pavéd the way for a pioneering and timeless brand. Helly Hansen tops are perfect base layers. Shirts, long-sleeved tops, tanks and T-shirts sit close to the body for a soft and warming finish while bright colours and modern styles bring the range up to date.
