Lifa Stay Dry Technology
It's simply the best moisture management system in the world! The key to staying warm is keeping your skin dry. While traditional baselayer fibers hold moisture next to your skin, Lifa® Stay Dry Technology moves the moisture away, keeping you warm, dry, and comfortable. Continually perfected over the last 40 years, Lifa® Stay Dry Technology is the unique ingredient in Helly Hansen baselayers.
Helly Hansen's patent-pending technology that puts you in control of your temperature. FLOW insulation uses air pockets or channels to provide warmth and airflow ventilation to cool you down when necessary, allowing you to perform your best under any condition.
- WARMER - FLOW utilizes insulation with exaggerated air pockets or holes. These spaces trap air, and that air stores your body heat and acts as an additional layer of insulation to keep you warm.
- COOLER - When you need to cool down, you simply open the ventilation zippers. This allows cool air to enter and allows trapped hot air and moisture to exit.
- LIGHTER - FLOW uses captured air to provide additional warmth, instead of filling the jacket with more insulation. FLOW jackets have a high warmth-weight ratio, weighing 30% less than comparable traditional jackets.
Helly Tech Waterproof/Breathable Membrane
Helly Tech® waterproof-breathable outerlayers provide extreme protection in the harshest conditions. These are your armor to protect you from the elements. Using a membrane with microscopic holes small enough to keep water molecules from getting in, but big enough to let moisture molecules escape, Helly Tech® will keep you dry from the outside & comfortable on the inside.
Representing the strictest standard for environmental sustainability in the global textile industry, bluesign® technologies helps guide us in our choices on the path of environmentally friendly business.
Recco reflectors are integrated into the majority of Helly Hansen ski jackets and pants to enable organized rescue teams to pinpoint a person's precise location in the event of an avalanche.

US Ski Team
Helly Hansen is the exclusive baselayer partner to the U.S. Ski Team. The team's 48 athletes are now wearing Helly Hansen's baselayers in all races.

The US Ski Team chose Oslo-based Helly Hansen due to the company's shared commitment to performance, innovation and style. U.S. Ski Team athletes are wearing HH Dry, HH Dry Revolution and HH Warm baselayers during more than 75 World Cup races in 12 countries over the course of each season.
Growing up on the mole hills outside Minneapolis was not the likely beginnings of an elite alpine ski racer and a lifelong lover of the mountains. However, at the age of 15, Kaylin was named to the US Ski Team and packed her bags. A five-event skier, Kaylin excelled in both the technical and speed disciplines, systematically moving her way up the ranks. As a ten year veteran, she ended her racing career as a four-time National Champion (one title in slalom, two in downhill, and one in combined) and two-time Olympian (06' and 10'). After retiring from the World Cup in 2010, Kaylin explored different avenues of the skiing spectrum, but what excited her most was entering the big mountain scene. As Ambassador of Skiing at Canyons Resort in Park City, UT, Kaylin fell in love with the backcountry of the Wasatch Range and hasn't left for too long since. Kaylin was featured in Warren Miller's "Flow State" and will appear in this fall's "Ticket To Ride"
Jackie grew up on the East coast where she was a member of freestyle mogul ski team at Sunday River. This had her hooked on skiing, and she quickly progressed in mogul skiing landing a title as Jr. World Combined Champion. Jackie then transplanted out to Lake Tahoe in search of powder and coached the Alpine Meadows Freestyle Team and then the Squaw Valley Ski Team. After a recommendation from her friends, Jackie took on big mountain skiing and the Freeskiing World Tour. It proved to be a good fit because after just one season she had her first victory and became only the second woman in 11 years to win the highly coveted Sickbird award at the 2008 US Freeskiing Nationals at Snowbird, UT. In recent years Jackie has taken her competition to the Freeride World Tour and the Red Bull Cold Rush. She has pushed her results further every year, most notably taking top honors at Squaw Valley's Tram Face in 2010 and Chamonix in 2012 in the FWT and 2nd overall in the 2012 Cold Rush.
Aurelien has evolved at the best levels of junior alpine skiing since he was a kid. When he was 15, he joined the French ski jumping team and won 2 titles as Champion de France and he participated in his first world cups. In search of new sensations, freedom and wild spaces - Aurelien started snowboarding - the fluidity of his snowboarding and his jumping skills led him to be chosen as the stunt double for the main actor in the feature film Snowboarder. Back on skis a few years later, Aurelien has now dedicated himself to the freeride scene - still full of humility, but inhabited by a great mental force.
