''For the insulation in our Arctic Ocean line we have designed winter jackets made specifically for cold water sailing.
Building on the long tradition of using wool in sweaters among sailors and fishermen, we found the lavalan insulation to provide this unique material in a lightweight and modern way that enables us to bring the benefits and warmth of wool into insulated technical waterproof breathable jackets.
The light construction and the natural wool within the lavalan insulation is enabling a unique level of comfort in our jackets through its control of the microclimate in the garments and also have the benefit of maintaining its insulation function even if it should get wet. It’s a material fitting very much to the challenges we meet when making cold water sailing gear.
Founded in Norway in 1877, Helly Hansen continues to develop professional grade apparel that helps people stay and feel alive. Its uniforms are worn and trusted by more than 55,000 professionals on the water, snow and ice and can be found on Olympians, National Teams, and at more than 200 ski resorts and mountain guiding operations around the world.''
