Clothes shopping in UK winters can be a bit of a challenge these days if you are after something a bit different. With a severe lack of independent menswear outlets it’s easy to find yourself mooching through the same old chain stores with a few exceptions.
Helly Hansen have been designing and making some cool, durable fashion garments for over 140 years (more info here). Helly Hansen gear is worn and trusted by professionals on oceans, mountains and worksites. As the #1 apparel brand for Ski Professionals, you’ll find HH at more than 200 ski resort and guiding operations around the world, and worn by more than 55,000 ski professionals. Their sailing gear is worn by world-class sailors across all five oceans, but it’s also perfect for British winter time, and coming into January, the weather is likely to be at its coldest.
Here’s a look at a few warm winter fashion items we’ve received from Helly Hansen for review:
A reinvented must-have. Lighter and more comfortable but with the same stylish, rugged look. Perfect for this winter season. The Fremont offers great comfort and protection for everyday outdoor tasks. This boot will make sure you arrive in style while keeping your feet dry and protected. Works well with loose fit and boot cut jeans. If you like your Caterpillar boots these may offer a cool alternative (more info here).
