Helly Hansen: The Captain of Polar Fashion

In cooler temperatures, warm becomes the new black. No other brand has stood the test of time in polar fashion stronger than trailblazer, Helly Hansen. The brand started back in 1877 when Norwegian Captain Helly Juell Hansen and his wife Margarethe began producing jackets, trousers, sou'westers and tarpaulins, made from coarse linen soaked in linseed oil.

Fast forward to the 20th century, Helly Hansen has continued to make several huge fabric technology breakthroughs. In fact, they’re responsible for:

  1. The layering principal
  2. The original fleece, fiberpile, which protects and insulates the bodies temperature
  3. Helox, a thin sheet of translucent PVC plastic sewn into waterproof coats
  4. The wonder fiber, LIFA, which pushes moisture away from the body

In addition, in the late 1980’s, they launched Helly Tech technology and revolutionized the creation of breathable and waterproof garments.

Today Helly Hansen is used by world-class sailors, skiers, adventurers – and more importantly –Quark Expeditions! We’re thrilled to be selling Helly Hansen in our ships boutiques, and we’re confident the garments will provide Quark travelers with a strong and sturdy guard against the polar elements so you can snowshoe, hike, ski and sightsee with ease.

Needless to say, you're in good hands when you're with Helly and Quark.
