Lifa Stay Dry Technology
Lifa fabric has the ability to absorb up to 40 times less moisture than it's leading competitor Polyester fabrics. As a result this increases the ability of Lifa to eradicate moisture more effectively and therefore keep you dryer and lighter longer. HH StayDry technology is your second skin and the heart of the HH effective 3-Layer System. It is a moisture super highway creating a dry layer next to the skin, keeping you comfortable during highly aerobic activities in a wide range of conditions.
Helly Hansen Polypropylene inner face lining that combined with Merino Wool as an outer face, creates a dry warm and lightweight garment that is exceptional as a thermal base layer.
For added comfort and layering. The relaxed fit makes this baselayer look natural on runs or even in a more casual environment.
The best wool base layer on the market. Combining the unique LIFA fiber technology next to skin to keep you dry, with a premium merino wool exterior with superior insulating and wicking properties.
Stay warm and cozy while on the slopes or in the mountains with the Helly Hansen men's Freeze 1/2-zip turtle. The turtle is made using hollow Lifa Thermic Tube Technology (T3), a lightweight, dual-layer design that mimics the fur of polar bears. This mean's the garment's hollow-core Lifa fibers sit next to the skin to insulate the upper body and wick away moisture beautifully. The outer layer, meanwhile, is made of super-fine merino wool that's notably warm yet itch-free. There's no better protection for ultra-chilly days whether you're skiing in rough conditions or trying to survive a nasty winter cold spell. Other details include a half-zip neckline, flat lock stitching, and low bulk cuffs.
About Helly Hansen
For more than 130 years, Helly Hansen has been at the forefront of product development and innovation. Since 1877, when sea captain Helly Juell Hansen made his first oilskin waterproof jackets, the company has pushed the boundaries of fabric technologies. Helly and his wife Maren Margrethe gathered a stock of coarse linen and linseed oil. They designed and sewed jackets, trousers, and sou'wester hats for ocean use. Then Helly Juell applied oil to the garments and dried them before an open fire. Helly Hansen's waterproofs were a great success. In that first year, 1877, they produced and sold 2,000 items, from clothes to tarpaulins. Within five years they sold 10,000 pieces.
The business was officially formed in 1877. Helly Hansen was on the map, but his enquiring mind continually sought to diversify. He knew that the principle of lightweight waterproof fabrics must have multiple applications. The key to success was testing all his products before they were offered for sale. Quality was crucial. Helly Hansen's technical specifications were high, and so were the prices. But demand for his product continued to grow.
Many years later and with numerous new fabrics and technologies available, the evolution of breathable, waterproof jackets had a profound effect on the outdoor industry. Now everyone who participated in high-activity sport could expect their clothing to work with them, not against them. It was a major catalyst. From its roots in providing sturdy, waterproof clothing for fishermen, Helly Hansen now designed technical garments, base, insulation, and protective layers.
Now, more than 130 years since Helly began his work, Helly Hansen is a global company and is represented in more than 20 countries, with more than 500 individual product lines for men, women, and children. Helly Hansen provides technical clothing for workwear and action sports for all seasons.

Size note: I'm 5'6", 180lbs. and on the bulkier/muscular side. I went with the medium, which ended up being a great fit (semi-tight, but not constricting) in every area EXCEPT the neck. The neck was too tight for me, which was a shame, since the rest of the shirt fit appropriately. If I ever order again, I'll definitely opt for a crew shirt.
I wore the Helly's as my base layer during three days of skiing, a dogsledding trip and general outdoor use. They lived up to their reputation, specifically in the areas of warmth and moisture control. Regarding warmth, they were absolutely awesome; I could not ask for more out of a base layer. Even at the coldest temperatures, the shirt kept me extremely warm (I wore them with a pair of insulated ski pants). They were also great at wicking moisture and sweat away from my body. I would frequently find the insulation layer of my ski jacket soaked with sweat, while the Helly's remained dry.
All-in-all, I am mostly happy with my purchase and I would recommend these pants to anyone looking for a cold weather base layer, with one caveat: if you have a thick neck, go for a HH crew shirt (similar to: http://www.amazon.com/Helly-Hansen-T-Shirt-Night-Small/dp/B007FPMTEI/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1392746203&sr=8-2&keywords=helly+hansen+warm).
Initial Impressions: I love the materials it's made out of and wearing it feels great. I've found myself already using it as a go-to around the house and around town. Based on how it's performed in the winter cold just around town I'm confident it'll perform well in strenuous activities and on the slopes.
Sizing: These run very small. I'm 6'4, 225lbs with long arms (37 inch sleeves) and more of an athletic build. Depending on the brand, I'm typically an L or XL, but with this I required an XXL. It's close fitting and an athletic cut but not compression levels of tight. Depending on how you like your fit I'm guessing the XXL would work for someone a couple inches taller and 10 or 15 pounds heavier. The XL was too small for me but the XXL is a good fit if a little on the longer side.
Style: I got the dark blue with the red cuffs. They look kind of orange in the picture but are more red in person. The look and styling is great overall. I could do without the race stripes on the forearm though. They add nothing and detract a little from the overall appearance in my opinion. Fortunately, they're pretty small compared to other models and don't bother me too much.
They fit well under regular winter clothing and wash well - no shinkage.
- it is warm
- well made
- not itchy
- color (orange) is pretty cool
- next to skin fit as it should
- neck is way too tight, no way I could wear this all day with the neck tied up and that is a big deal, because for skiing that might be exactly what you need.
- sleeves are super long, even for my monkey arms, not a big deal per se, but still.
- shirt is too short for me, I dont have a long torso either, funny considering how long the sleeves are. This shirt I'd say is 1.5 inches too short.
Update to review: I used this shirt for a 10 degree Fahrenheit day, with one mid-layer jacket and a hard shell, it performed beautifully, when I was charging downhill I never felt the sweat being trapped and it regulated my body temperature really good when on the lift, although being too short, it never untucked from my pants so that's good. The neck area though, I can't zip it all the way up and be comfortable, I wore a neck gaiter and that helped. Yes, not a bad shirt, will get a lot of use. Raising my review to 4 stars from 3.
