The idea for an outerwear brand was born in 1877, when Norwegian captain Helly Hansen was inspired to produce oilskin jackets, pants and tarpaulins made from linen soaked in linseed oil. Throughout the 20th century, the company reinvented their jackets, pioneering the 'three-layer system'. Today, Helly Hansen gear is used by world-class sailors, travelers, adventurers and skiers. Helly Hansen pants are the ultimate in fashionable yet functional activewear. From ski pants to innovative jogging leggings, these pieces will slot seamlessly into active wardrobes.
