Helly Hansen has become a top name in outdoor technical apparel thanks to its emphasis on keeping people dry and warm in harsh, wet conditions.

Over the years, the brand has made its mark by developing in-house technologies like Helly Tech Professional, a waterproof outer layer that can withstand harsh weather conditions and rigorous abuse. The pinnacle of its apparel, the Odin Collection, combines Helly Hansen’s tech with premium ingredients like PrimaLoft insulation.

The main takeaway? Helly Hansen has built its reputation on high-end apparel, and some of that know-how trickles down to its less-technical offerings, too.

Anyone looking to upgrade their outdoor wardrobe for alpine adventures or summer hikes will find the brand makes best-in-class insulated midlayers, wicking baselayers, four-season pants, and other gear suited to the task.

Below you’ll find some standouts from it Spring & Summer 2024 collection, but they’ve got a whole lot more on tap to get you in your element this season and next.

Performance & Comfort During Every Season

Helly Hansen apparel protects from the elements while helping your body manage warmth and sweat. Year-round performance is all about layering and staying comfortable, even during Type 2 fun.

Waterproof shells (pants or jackets) shield you from wet weather and high winds alike. But even in warmer seasons, shells can lock in enough body heat to enable them to be worn over your lightest layers.

Similarly, insulated jacket shines in winter, but even in summer, there are alpine excursions where you should pack one in case things turn messy. Wicking layers come in various weights for both the temperature and intensity of your activity.

We highlighted just a few of the latest technical layers from Helly Hansen. You’ll find plenty of other options to prepare for your next outdoor adventure on its website.
