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 protection from the elements.
The first layer is your base-layer. Lifa Flow delivers super quick drying next to skin and guarantees that you’ll always feel dry and comfortable. The HH Active Flow LS is an advanced construction combining Lifa® Stay Dry Technology and fast wicking fibers, making it ideal as an all year activity base layer. In addition, this shirt is constructed with a relaxed fit, making it just as great to wear as a casual piece . The second layer is your mid-layer. Fleece is a standard mid-layer because it is appreciated for its warmth and comfort. The final layer is your outerwear. The outerwear is designed to protect you from the weather. It will protect your from the wind and snow but also allows for heat and moisture to escape so your skin stays warm and dry. The Mission Jacket, Helly Tech® Professional mechanical stretch 2L fabric in combination with the H²Flow system dramatically improves your comfort and will make sure to keep you dry, warm or cool depending on the conditions and intensity. Premier ski specific features throughout including jacket-pant compatible powder skirt, goggle pocket, and Recco® advanced rescue system.
