About Helly Hansen
Founded in Moss, Norway, in 1877, Helly Hansen is the leading provider in technical outerwear and apparel for a range of outdoor activities. Originally created by Captain Helly Juell Hansen; a sea captain from Norway, Helly Hansen was created on the foundations of providing quality protective apparel to protect you from the elements. The brand was first recognised for its achievements in waterproof material for sailors and sailing enthusiasts who were tired of getting wet and cold. This eventually moved into other outdoor areas where protection from the elements is a matter of survival.

Today, 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 these elements.
