Founded in Moss, Norway, in 1877, Helly Hansen continues to protect and enable professionals making their living on oceans and mountains around the world. Their apparel, developed through a blend of Scandinavian design and insights drawn from living in some of the harshest environments on earth, helps provide the confidence professionals need to step out into the elements and complete their jobs. The company invented the first supple, waterproof fabrics more than 130 years ago in 1877, the first Propile™ fleece mid layers in the 1960s, and LIFA®, the first technical base layer in the 1970s. We work and play in the harshest environments on the planet to learn what's needed to create the best performance gear possible. We work closely with people who work outdoors more days than they are indoors to continuously optimize the technology and design of our products.
