Made to protect
For Fall and Winter 2015 Haglöfs is introducing its "Hellner by Haglöfs" collection, which consists of a vest, jacket, pair of trousers and beanie. This collection is intended for training all year long, but in colder weather conditions in particular. In addition to skiing, whether on snow or with roller skis, the collection is also perfect for other high intensity sports, such as cycling, running and Nordic skating.
Marcus Hellner is one of the best cross-country skiers in the world. His achievements include four Olympic medals (of which three are gold), five World Championship medals and the Svenska Dagbladet gold medal, Bragdguldet, as part of the Swedish relay team. Marcus's genuine interest in the outdoors and his experiences as an elite athlete were two of the reasons behind the collaboration that was started in 2012 and focused on developing products for high intensity activities.
Hellner Vest is made from Haglöfs Flexable and is lightly insulated with Polartec® Alpha®. Polartec® Alpha® was originally developed for American special forces that were looking for an advanced active insulation that could maintain an optimal temperature for both active and passive users. The fabric offers improved moisture-wicking, breathability and also dries faster than previous technologies – the perfect properties for high intensity activities. HELLNER VEST is stretchable and offers a dynamic combination of insulation and good breathability.
Hellner Jacket is made from a combination of Haglöfs Flexable and a new soft three-layer Windstopper® Soft Shell fabric – a direct result of repeated testing with Marcus. The jacket offers four-way stretch and has a mesh construction that binds air while at the same time minimizing contact with body. The result is an excellent combination of heat, protection and comfort.
