29 September 2009Helly Hansen - Baselayers for all conditionsAuthor: Nils Muchardt

HH baselayers are the starting point for the best moisture management system in any condition. When you work hard and get warm, heat sealing moisture build up is your worst enemy. The baselayer works as a second more effective skin, maintaining a dry layer close to the body.

HH offers a baselayer for all conditions with HHWarm, HHDry, HHCool and the new addition HHOne.


HH One - All-in-one baselayer to cover your full year needs.

HHOne is a versatile baselayer for a new generation of consumers. Its high-tech construction is superior both in red hot and subzero conditions. With a softer feel and looser fit it’s super comfortable, as it moves moisture more rapidly away from the skin to the thermal layer. It provides superb moisture management and comfort in most conditions making it very versatile

HHOne combines HH Warm and HH Cool technology for year round performance. Loose fit increases comfort and usage versatility. When used as a single layer in warm weather, extra airflow helps cool you down. Micro eyelet structure on both the inside and outside gives perfect balance between moisture management and insulation.

Lifa T3 Technology - Synthetic hollow core construction traps heated air inside and moves moisture at the same time as it insulates.

Supercharged X-pulsion Technology - X shaped outside fibres create larger surface for ultra quick drying. Thicker Lifa fibres inside and thinner polyester fibres outside create a mechanical pull of moisture.


HH Dry - Your second skin and the latest generation of the original baselayer.

HHDry is at the heart of Helly Hansens effective 3-Layer System. It is a moisture super highway creating a dry layer next to the skin, keeping you comfortable during highly aerobic activities in a wide range of conditions.

A flat surface next to the skin gives maximum contact and moisture transfer. Open eyelet structure outside provides the maximum evaporation surface and air trapping for insulation while layering.

Lifa Stay Dry Technology - In short, Lifa hates water! It retains 40 times less moisture than polyester, so nothing will keep you drier. It is 40% more lightweight and has 60% higher insulation to weight ratio than polyester. Also natural anti bacterial to prevent odour, 100% non allergenic and 100% recyclable.


HH Warm - Harnesses your heat to stay dry, warm and super comfortable.

HHWarm is the natural choice to stay warm in sub zero environments. This baselayer features two different layers in one. The inner Lifa fibres ensure you stay dry in all conditions, while the outer, soft Merino wool adds warmth and comfort. This means you get extreme insulation and superior evacuation of moisture. Can be used at varied intensities in sub zero conditions.

Lifa T3 next to the skin for moisture movement and Merino wool on the outside.

Eyelet structure on the inside next to the skin for maximum air trapping and insulation.

High volume airy overall knit for added trapped air.

Lifa T3 Technology - Synthetic hollow core construction traps heated air inside. Moves moisture at the same time as it insulates. Mimics the fur of polar bears and creates a soft skin feel.

Merino wool - Super fine wool (18.5 micron) adds insulation and warmth and makes the garment super comfortable.

HH Cool

HHCool is your on-body air conditioning for in-creased venting and comfort during high intensity acitity in warm weather. With features like Coolgrid™ and X-pulsion Technology™ for increased airflow and quick evaporation, nothing will keep you cooler.

Stay Dry Technology pulls excess heat and sweat away from the skin for long term dryness during high-intensity pursuits.

X-pulsion Technology allows ultra quick drying through a mechanical pull of moisture.

Cool Grid sections of the garment allow heat to escape quickly from key areas of the body keeping you cool at all times.
