Helly Hansen has been making professional-grade gear to help people stay and feel alive for more than 140 years. Founded in 1877 when sea captain Helly Juell Hansen discovered a better way to stay protected from the harsh Norwegian elements. Soon thereafter, Captain Hansen and his wife Margrethe launched a business producing waterproof oilskin jackets, trousers, sou’westers and tarpaulins made from coarse linen soaked in linseed oil – and the legend was born.
Helly Hansen gear is worn and trusted by professionals on oceans, mountains, and worksites. As the #1 apparel brand for Ski Professionals, you’ll find HH at more than 200 ski resorts and guiding operations around the world, and worn by more than 55,000 ski professionals.
