   Helly Hansen Long Sleeve Crew Neck Reviews

  Reviewed by Barry Hughes (Invergordon) on 2005-12-14:
General comments: When it was time to replace my original smelly Helly I thought things might have improved with all this new technology but I am afraid to say it still smells after a long day in the hills - not quite as bad the old one I'll grant you - but certainly not of roses either . Without the benefit of scientific testing I can say that it does wick sweat away very well as I do tend to perspire rather heavily when I put out a bit . In fact I wear it when I go out running and it is perfect with a windproof top for winter runs although it does tend to cause joggers nipple . I seem to feel the cold more than my walking / climbing partners but I think that is down to my body rather than my clothing but nevertheless for early spring to late autumn I usually only wear my Helly with a Paramo shirt for walking. Come late November I start wearing a Helly Hansen Pro-wool top instead but others might be happy enough with the lighter top all year round. The cut is very good - the back is cut longer as are the sleeves and as I've said it's good for running and walking but also climbing and mountain biking. And its a damn sight cheaper than all the merino gear.

Pros: Good cut , smells better than my last one , just , and the price is reasonable

Cons: Buy a big tub of Vaseline if you are going to wear it for running

General comments: A classic product with great function. the first thing to notice when your wear a Helly Hansen base layer is the cut of the garment. They are excellent for active people with slim, long torso good movement under arm and long arms with close fitting cuffs. Because of the fit (close) they wick well and don't seem to hold the smell as badly as older Helly base layers. These base layers also sport the tell-tell HH stripes for all the image conscious.

Pros: Good active cut with long sleeves and drop back, two areas which can let in the cold. Wicks very well with less smell than older HH.

Cons: Material can cause friction rubbing under rucksack straps and if used for running.

General comments: Worn 'smelly-hellies' for years and always found them to be the best of the base layer, long sleeved tops. Latest version definately less smelly - but who cares if it does the job - which it does! I wear it mainly for hill-running and nothing keeps me as warm and dry. No problems with friction rubs. Cut is perfect for me as I have a long upper body - means I can tuck it in my shorts to reduce draughts and the sleeves are good and long too.

Pros: Good fit, long back and sleeves. Excellent wicking

Cons: Getting a touch expensive

General comments: Probably the best known wicking base layer around. You certainly will not be disapointed with the moisture transfer of this garment as it easily wicks sweat away from your torso keeping you dry and comfortable. With the advent of merino wool base layers that don't smell I think Helly Hansen may have to improve on this aspect as it does pong after a days use, however, that's what you'd expect of any base layer until the merino revolution...

Pros: Fast wicking ability, comfortable, price is still cheaper than most other base layers.

Cons: Smells after heavy use but that's to be expected. Styling makes you look like a bit of an eejit!

Andrew Gifford responded : Definitely agree with the reviewer's comments. I use these for Winter use only where with the pants they give me a warm but breathable base layer. In summer I stick with Montane baselayers for better cooling and way less smell. (2008-02-22)

General comments: I have a few of these and really do add an extra layer of warmth. They look good and fit well. They do wick away water pretty fast and can be worn as an outer garment when it gets quite warm. I use mine for walking and climbing in and help regulate my body temperature better. They are also ideal for sleeping in when camping out of season as there are no zips or toggles to dig into you. They take up no space at all in the rucksack and weigh next to nothing. The price of them are quite expensive but are well constructed.

Pros: Stylish, well fitting, light and comfortable

Cons: They smell bad if you sweat. The fabric can be prone to pulled threads and can look tatty after a few wears / washes. Can be highly static when you remove it.
