In 1877, Helly Juell Hansen and his wife, Maren Margarethe, started to produce oilskin jackets, trousers, tarpaulins, and sou'westers made of linseed oil soaked fabric to protect the sailors from cold weather and water, and Helly Hansen was born.
The main purpose of this technique, which was applied 140 years ago, was to prevent water from penetrating into the fabric and to ensure that the person wearing the clothes made of that fabric did not get wet. The theory is still the same, but the fabrics are no longer kept in linseed oil barrels. Since its first days, Helly Hansen has been continuing to produce more innovative waterproof garments made of the types of fabrics it has developed.
In the late 1940s, Helly Hansen unveils fashionable garments with technical characteristics by developing much thinner waterproof fabrics. Helly Hansen introduced LIFA® technical baselayers in 1970 and took the process one step further and moves moisture away from the body.
Ski jackets are a specialty of Helly Hansen. Each Helly Hansen ski jacket contains many years of knowledge. Helly Hansen ski jackets for men, which stand out with their technical features and designs, are among the most preferred ski jackets for professional skiers. Designed to provide protection in the harshest weather conditions, Helly Hansen ski jackets are highly-breathable and waterproof, and aim to provide the skier comfortable movement and maximum performance.
We've put together some of the Helly Hansen ski jackets for men and listed them for you. Helly Hansen ski jackets are designed to make skiers noticeable on snow while considering their health, performance, and style.
