The expansive range of waterproof workwear includes both Helly Hansen mens waterproof jackets, trousers and more as well as the respective womens variants.
The features of Helly Hansen Waterproof Garments
There are plenty of ways Helly gets their gear waterproofed. For starters, to have a garment classed as being waterproof in the first place, it must meet the requirements of the EN 343 safety standard, most notably having a high degree of breathability and of course waterproofing. One of the ways Helly Hansen workwear is waterproofed is by having a fully taped construction, meaning all seams are sealed so as to prevent water entry. While this helps ensure decent protection from moisture penetration, in some cases it can mean that moisture from within the garment can’t escape, causing pent up heat and potential discomfort. However, this isn’t a problem for Helly Hansen’s waterproof workwear, all thanks to the Helly Tech® Performance membrane. This is Helly’s own patented fabric technology that is both waterproof and breathable all in one layer, allowing moisture to get outside and regulate the wearer's temperature, whilst also not letting any vapour in. Hellytech also has the added benefit of being windproof, which can be just as useful as waterproofing given that you will frequently find yourself in situations where you’ll need shielding from both these hazards.
With dark skies and pouring rain, one of the first thing that gets impacted is the wearer's visibility, and ability to see others. Thankfully, you can kill two birds with one stone by getting your workforce decked out in Helly Hansen hi vis waterproof workwear. Thanks to EU-approved fluorescent colours and reflective strips, you can easily stay seen and safe as well as being dry and comfortable.
Helly Hansen Waterproof Jackets
Naturally, the first thing to mind when you hear “waterproof workwear” is likely a jacket. Helly Hansen rain jackets have been keeping everyone who wears them, worker or not, dry and comfy for generations. With their existing history building jackets for cold and wet environments, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that a Helly Hansen waterproof jacket is one of their best ranges in their entire workwear lineup.
Helly Hansen waterproof jackets come in a variety of different styles and materials, so you should be able to find the right jacket for you with little issue. There are softshell work jackets, like the Helly Hansen Oxford waterproof shell jacket, that are lightweight, breathable and waterproof and are great all year round. Thanks to the Hellytech and taped construction, the waterproofing of the garment itself is already excellent, but given the form factor of a jacket, the Oxford shell jacket and others can also take advantage of a storm flap at the front to shield you from the elements that bit more. Similarly, the Helly Hansen chelsea evolution shell jacket has an extended back for increased protection from behind.
Another type of Helly Hansen mens waterproof jacket is the 3-layer jacket. Helly Hansen 3 layer rain jackets are thicker in general as they, as the name suggests, are made from three distinct parts; the inner layer lining, providing warmth and insulation, the middle layer membrane (which in Helly’s case is their waterproof and breathable HellyTech membrane), and the tough outer shell is the 3rd part. If you need all out weather protection, a 3 layer Helly jacket will suit you well.
This is all of course without mentioning the other work-orientated features that Helly Hansen mens and Helly Hansen ladies waterproof jackets can come with. This includes hand and chest pockets, ripstop fabric in key areas, having an adjustable hood and cuffs to increase comfort and much more.
Helly Hansen Waterproof Trousers
Helly waterproof trousers are in a similar vein to jackets, being a key part of the workwear outfit that needs to be prepared for adverse weather conditions. Helly Hansen waterproof trousers utilise Helly Tech and welded seams to give them their waterproof nature. The Helly Mandal trousers take elemental protection a step further, as they have been made from 100% PVC coated polyester, PVC which is oil and mildew resistant, allowing for protection from the harshest of weather. In another unique instance of waterproofing work trousers, the Alta Hi vis waterproof shell pant has a knee high boot zipper with storm flap and fastener closure for a bit of lower leg weather protection. Other Helly Hansen waterproof trousers frequently feature stretch materials and elastic waists and hems to make them a comfort fit that is convenient to put on and take off.
