“As the cold nights draw in and seasonal festivity fills the air…” or so the latest press release from Helly Hansen starts with and continues in an attempt to paint a wintery theme to give its latest collection some context.
Yes, it’s that time of the year again when the Bikemagic inbox is swamped with news of the latest cold weather clothing, and today it’s the turn of Helly Hansen. However, we always take a closer look at the latest offerings from a company that has long since been doing a sterling job of keeping our bodies warm out on the trail when it’s raining or snowing.
While not cycling-specific, the new Verglas Hybrid Top and Pant (or tights, as we Brits more commonly refer to them) are made using a combination of Helly Hansen’s Warm and Dry fabrics, each optimised for different situations they might be pressed into action against. The Hybrid Top is a turtleneck design with a soft Merino wool next to the skin and hollowfibre LIFA trapping warm air, making it ideal as a midlayer.
The Verglas Hybrid Top is available in black, white and tobasco for men, and black, white and fuchsia for women in sizes XS-XXL and priced £65.
For the lower half of the body the Verglas Pant uses HH Warm fabric in the body and HH Dry around the back and behind the knee. Available in black for men, and black and fuchsia for women in sizes XS-XXL and costing £50.
The new Helly Hansen range has your head covered too, with the Ekolab Recycled Reversible Beanie. Costing £17, this beanie is made from 100% recycled Polyester with a bold stripes on one side and a block colour design on the reverse. Available in black, bark brown and ebony.
For the fashion conscious the New Bomber is a style-led item of headwear, but this being Helly Hansen it’s still made from performance materials, using a shell fabric for protection from the elements to keep your head toasty warm. Yours for £30.
