tw profile2 400x400-1408048592On 25 December 2016, Helly Hansen ambassador, Thomas Coville, broke the record for the fastest solo sail around the world, in a total of 49 days, 3 hours, 7 minutes and 38 seconds. Fully outfitted in Helly Hansen clothing, the 140-year old Norwegian brand can now confidently claim that it creates the fastest kit in the world.

For 2018, Helly Hansen continues to bring innovative, functional and protective professional grade gear to the sailing market. The new collection has something for everyone, including layers to help keep the most foul-weather sailors warm and heritage sailing jackets for day use along the coastline.


With trusted input and grueling testing by record-breaker, Thomas Coville, Helly Hansen expands its Ægir line - sailing apparel for the toughest and most challenging conditions possible. The Ægir H2Flow Jacket will be every racer's new favourite jacket with unbeatable breathability using its H2Flow temperature regulation system and slick surface materials to ensure ease of layering. The supple fabrics allow free movement while waterproof, windproof and breathable construction enables the jacket to be worn as an outer layer when conditions are tame. When paired with the new Ægir H2Flow Salopette, sailors can enjoy full-body protection in these fitted, highly mobile, insulated layers. Each piece works separately or together to retain heat, and will expel unwanted hot air quickly through ergonomically placed vents on both, the jacket and salopette.


Each year, sailors equip themselves to brave the seas between Norway and Denmark to participate in the Skagen Race. For 2018, Helly Hansen, the title sponsor of the race, delivers the Skagen Offshore Jacket and Skagen Offshore Bib for both men and women – the perfect balance of warmth and protection, in a racing outfit to protect from the cold climate racing conditions.

Sporting the official logo of the Skagen Race, each new piece also includes details to support a successful crossing, including a tall, protective collar with a unique face mask, double cuffs with adjustable seals, hand-warmers, cargo pockets and SOLAS-approved reflective patches on both the jacket and bib. Specifically for women, the new W Skagen Offshore Bib includes a drop seat design, allowing women to take care of business without the hassle of removing the jacket and bib before they can get back to sailing.


All pieces also include the trusted HellyTech® Performance used by professionals around the world, to ensure breathability alongside durable waterproofing and windproofing, making this jacket and bib combo the best foul weather gear to take on the elements.

The marine lifestyle is something Norwegians know very well and to embody its heritage, Helly Hansen offers the Salt Flag Jacket for both men and women. This fully technical waterproof, windproof and breathable HellyTech Performance jacket, is built for the cruiser in need of long-lasting functionality alongside standout design, and looks just as good on and off the water. The clear marine stripe across the jacket chest represents the vast horizons of the seas and comes in a variety of colours to celebrate the Norwegian coastlines and countryside.
