A Guide to our Technologies

HELLY HANSEN USES AND HAS PIONEERED MANY TECHNOLOGIES TO HELP YOU STAY DRY, WARM AND COMFORTABLE.

Baselayer is your second skin

" In these hostile environments, the main focus is moisture management. We need to make sure the moisture we produce can get out. "

— INGE SOLHEIM, POLAR GUIDE

If you want to keep warm, You need to stay dry

Baselayers work as your second skin, maintaining a dry layer next to your body. When doing high-energy activities, too much sweat can be your worst enemy. That’s why our baselayers are engineered using the unique Lifa® Stay Dry Technology. When exposed to moisture, the Lifa® fibers immediately move it away from your skin, allowing the moisture to evaporate into the air or onto the next layer. Lifa® is also 40% lighter and 60% warmer than polyester. And nothing will keep you drier.

Depending on your activity, and the conditions you will perform it in, we can help you find the perfect baselayer to suit your needs and keep you dry.

MIDLAYER HARNESSES YOUR BODY HEAT

”The midlayers really come into play in some of the darkest and dingiest places on earth.”

— RICHARD MASON, PROFESSIONAL SAILOR

REGULATE YOUR TEMPERATURE BY MOVING MOISTURE

The point of this layer is to keep your body at an optimal temperature. Warm. But not too warm. When your activity level-height level rises, you need your mid layer to regulate your temperature by moving moisture away from your body. Because in order to keep warm, you have to stay dry.

We offer a wide range of different types of mid layers that make functional sense when layering up for all types of conditions. Featuring technologies like Pro Stretch®, for high movement activities and Primaloft® for sub-zero conditions. We also work with down and Polartech® to ensure you harness your heat in any conditions.

OUTER LAYER IS YOUR SHIELD AGAINST THE ELEMENTS

"Sometimes you’re down to minus 50°C, so you have to keep the elements out and trap the warmth you’ve created. Or you’ll freeze instantly."

— INGE SOLHEIM, POLAR GUIDE

THE FRONTLINE BETWEEN YOU AND NATURE

Whatever nature throws your way, the outer layer is what you depend on to stay dry from the outside, and comfortable on the inside. We use Helly Tech® waterproof and breathable fabrics in most of our outer layer products. Sometimes, we combine Helly Tech® with other technologies to keep you dry and warm. Depending on your activity, there are three Helly Tech® Technologies to choose from.
