Helly Hansen Designed For Foul Weather Since 1877

by Louise, Walter and Haakon Harald

I am not sure that many people actually know the history of Helly Hansen.  Helly Hansen was an actual person, a Norwegian Sea Captain in Bergen, Norway. Back in 1877 he and his wife created the first Waterproof Fabric . . . "Oil Cloth".  Ever since then Helly Hansen has lived up to its DNA and has become the world leader in providing the highest quality foul weather gear.  People who make their living off the sea depend on Helly Hansen and in many cases even bet their lives on it. 

Here are two of our perennial top picks that we rely on to keep us safe and comfortable.  

Both of them are fashioned out of Helly Tech which is a fully waterproof, windproof, and breathable fabric.  Helly Tech Fabrics hold up to rough wear and the harshest conditions that Mother Nature can create.  I've worn a Helly Tech rain suit through a Tornado and survived.  And NO, I will never do that again!  It seemed the logical thing to do at the time and it really helped keep things safe at a small town event that I was attending. 

Men's Utility Rain Jacket,

This is our best selling Men's Jacket year after year.  It is the perfect daily commuter with the styling of a classic Urban Safari Jacket.  This Jacket has more pockets than you will ever need and keeps you Dry and Comfortable all season long.  I own the 2007 version of this and it has traveled the world with me.  The Utility Rain Jacket can easily fold to fit in the back pocket of my briefcase, front pocket of my carry on or in a day pack.  Always ready for the next storm and it weighs less than my legal pad.
