Founded by a Norwegian ship captain and his wife, Helly Hansen has remained one of the world’s most innovative survival and rain gear designers since the 19th century. In 1877, Helly and Margarethe Hansen started making pants and jackets out of linseed oil-soaked linen and quickly found an audience for their waterproof wares. Over the years, the company has developed several additional methods to improve weatherproofing — from the 3-Layer Workwear System (a base layer, a thermal layer, and an outer shell) to quick-drying fiberpile fleece. A favorite among sailors and snowboarders alike, Helly Hansen’s pants, jackets, and shoes will help you brave the elements in style.
Come rain, come sleet, come freezing temps. In Helly Hansen outerwear, you can handle it. These waterproof, breathable jackets include such smart features as detachable hoods and vests, drawstring hems, Velcro cuffs and protective pockets for everything from your Swiss Army knife to your iPod. Also on deck are nylon pullovers as well as trail and boat shoes.

Weather-ready insulation and standout hues like orchid, fiery red, and liquid blue combine in this mix of zip-vent pants, soft terry jackets and hoodies, thermal leggings, and waterproof parkas.
