What Is Lifa® Flow Supercharged Drying?

Helly Hansen has been producing their HH Dry base layer collection used by runners, hikers, skiers, snowboarders and climbers for years. The moisture managing properties of the fibres in the fabric and the Lifa® Stay Dry technology revolutionized the outdoor industry back in 1970 when LIFA® was first used. Later in 1990 the Lifa® Stay Dry technology was blended with merino wool to create the HH Warm collection which was designed for professionals exposed to the coldest conditions. 

This year, Lifa® Stay Dry Technology has been paired with Helly Hansen’s unique Flow technology to keep wearers warm and comfortable by directly removing moisture from the body as soon as it is being created. 

The fibres used in the Lifa Flow base layers construction are different from those used in the fabrics of basic synthetic base layers for the sole fact that as soon as moisture is present, the fibres immediately move it away from the skin. This process allows the moisture to evaporate into the air or into the next layer leaving the wearer feeling dry and comfortable. Lifa Flow allows the wearer to “stay Dry. Stay Comfortable. Perform like a Pro.

Helly Hansen Lifa® Flow Base Layer Range

Helly Hansen’s base layer collection started out with their HH Dry designs which quickly became the go-to base layer for professionals everywhere. Today there are four sections with the Helly Hansen base layer range and each is suitable for specific activities. The four types within the Helly Hansen base layer ranges includes HH Dry, HH Warm, HH Active and HH Wool and below are the three collections available to purchase here at Altitude sports.

HH Dry

The HH Dry model is the original Helly Hansen base layer collection which provides professional level performance and moisture management. These lightweight base layers are ideal for high-intensity activities in cold temperatures such as running, hiking, climbing and even performance sailing. While the LifaÍ Stay Dry Technology moves sweat away from the skin, the transportation of moisture is enabled by a mesh construction.
