The story of Helly Hansen starts in 1877 when, after many years at sea, Norwegian captain Helly Juell Hansen began producing oilskin jackets, trousers and other articles that would better withstand unforgiving cold and wet weather.
Since then, the Helly Hansen brand has grown immensely due to the brand’s thirst for innovation, which has resulted in product development breakthroughs such as the 3-Layer System™, the original fiberpile fleece and Helly Tech technology.
In 2004, footwear for men and women was added to the product line to offer complete protection from the elements. Ranging from outdoor to marine-specific shoes, this collection is used by world-class sailors, skiers and adventurers who demand full protection and performance when the conditions are at their worst, whether in northernmost Canada or around the world.
