Helly Hansen Workwear Overview
Construction is messy. Because of that we don’t often think about what we wear to a job. However, preparing for a project is more than selecting what tools you need. What we wear can have a direct impact on our ability to complete a project. Helly Hansen Workwear wants to be the clothing and apparel that helps you get the job done.
This Norwegian company, Helly Hansen, has been a top producer of premier sailing, ski and general sports apparel and a favorite among athletes worldwide, including Olympians.
Today we are going to check out a few items from their workwear line.

Helly Hansen doesn’t make work boots. Fortunately, Danner is a US-based manufacturer that has been making quality, handmade work boots since 1932.
Danner Stronghold Boots (16719) are the perfect addition to your Helly Hansen Workwear. These handmade, full-grain leather boots are waterproof, shock-resistant, and water and oil slip-resistant. These boots have a classic look but are built with durable modern rubberized EVA midsoles that extend the boot’s life without sacrificing comfort. Danner also offers a 365-day warranty across their footwear line.
Buy these Danner Stronghold Work Boots for $220 on their website.
The Stronghold boots are also available in Women’s sizes.
Helly Hansen Workwear Value
You can’t find the value of Helly Hansen Workwear by comparing their apparel to other workwear brands. I tried. You can find another shirt from Duluth, another jacket from Carhartt, or find construction pants from Truewerk.
However, Helly Hansen has value as a quality one-stop-shop for workwear. You don’t need to go to multiple retailers to piece together one outfit. Plus, this high-performance workwear is designed to handle the day-to-day conditions of a construction site.
Helly Hansen Workwear Performance
Everything in this collection of Helly Hansen Workwear is breathable and flexible enough to perform well on the job.
The Oxford Waterproof Shell jacket holds up against rain and wind. Paired with the Kensington T-Shirt it’s comfortable to wear in the spring and fall, but an added layer would be nice in the winter. The Oxford Construction Pants are durable, but lightweight and flexible enough to move around easily in. The Lifa Merino Wool Beanie is comfortable and warm. It does a great job of keeping sweat out of your eyes during intense jobs without getting too hot on your head. And the Helly Hansen Duffel Bag 70L has tons of room, it’s comfortable to carry, and makes it easy to stay organized moving between worksites and home.
The Danner Stronghold Boots make a great addition to this full work outfit. The boots are comfortable and have great traction. Everything is well-constructed and functional.
