Helly Hansen are manufacturers of tough and durable technical workwear. The name Helly Hansen comes from its originator, Norwegian sea captain, Helly Juell Hansen. Hansen and his wife began producing oilskin jackets, trousers and other clothing for boat crews to keep them safe while at sea in harsh weather. Since those early days Helly Hansen have made many breakthroughs in clothing including the first fleece jacket. Today the name is associated strongly with quality workwear and work clothing as well as sports clothing and outdoor clothing. Their product range includes fleece jackets, trousers, jackets, footwear, thermal base layers, tops and T-shirts and much more.
