From Norway, Helly Hansen has been making professional grade gear that helps people stay and feel alive for the last 140 years.
In 1877, after many years at sea, Norwegian captain Helly Juell Hansen and his wife, Maren Margarethe, began producing oilskin jackets, trousers, sou’westers and tarpaulins, made from coarse linen soaked in linseed oil. Since then, the legacy of Helly Hansen lives on, developing and creating a long list of first-to-market innovations.
To this day, we continue to make gear that is trusted by professionals around the world. Helly Hansen apparel is developed through the insights of the 55,000 professionals living and working in the world’s harshest environments and can be seen on ski patrollers, mountain professionals, world-class sailors, skiers and adventurers.
