Helly Hansen
Since 1877, Helly Hansen has been on the forefront of innovative products.  Helly Hansen worked to develop what we know today as the 3-Layer System™. The 3-Layer System™ calls for wearing a base-layer, mid-layer, and outer-layer to provide the best possible for protection from the elements.  

The first layer is your base-layer.  The best wool base layer on the market.  Combining the unique Lifa® fiber technology next to skin to keep you dry, with a premium Merino wool exterior with superior insulating and wicking properties.
Shop for base-layers

The second layer is your mid-layer.  Fleece is a standard mid-layer because it is appreciated for its warmth and comfort.
Shop for mid-layers

The final layer is your outerwear.  The outerwear is designed to protect you from the weather.  It will protect you from the wind and snow but also allows for heat and moisture to escape so your skin stays warm and dry.  Alpha 2.0 Jacket - The Alpha 2.0 Jacket features PrimaLoft® Insulation with a body–mapping philosophy to keep you warm in the right areas, and our highly innovative H²Flow system turbocharging mechanical venting keeps you dry, warm, or cool depending on the outside conditions.

Helly Hansen brings the best in baselayers, midlayers, outerwear, clothing and accessories for men, women and children.
