Inspiriert von der Funktionskleidung der Polarforscher: der Escape Down H2Flow™ Parka.

The parka with its distinctive orange exterior is inspired both in design and functionality by Helly Hansen’s award-winning Arctic Patrol collection, the gold standard in winter protection, worn and designed with professionals.

"Our design team continues to find inspiration and motivation through the conditions these Arctic scientists endure," explains Kristoffer Ulriksen, Category Managing Director of Urban at Helly Hansen. "By taking their professional insights from the field to our products for the city, we know consumers can continue to trust in our ability to keep them dry, safe and protected during winter’s most frigid conditions."

Developed in the arctic, made for the city

The parka features Helly Hansen’s H2Flow™ construction, that provides enhanced air circulation and heat distribution for constant comfort for today’s unpredictable winter conditions and irrespective of activity levels. This is made more customizable thanks to a system of strategically placed insulation, zippered vents and a removable hood that is lusciously warm and comfortable. The hybrid insulation used in the jacket combines the thermal properties of ALLIED Feather & Down and the quick-drying and breathable warmth of PrimaLoft® Black Eco, further advancing the parkas environmental versatility. And, last but not least the outer fabric is finished with HELLY TECH® Protection which is waterproof, windproof, and breathable.

Delivering the protection from the winter elements that until now only the professionals have been privy to, the Arctic heritage of the Escape Down H2Flow™ Parka is evident to see and feel.

This is what the jury of the ISPO Award says about the Helly Hansen Escape Down H2Flow™ Parka:

"The Escape Down H2Flow™ Parka is an excellent example of how technical features from your high-end collection can be transferred to a consumer product for specialists. Helly Hansen has managed to find a reasonable price-performance ratio."
