In our store, we offer specialized maritime clothing that meets the needs of both inshore and offshore activities, ensuring comfort, safety, and durability.
Inshore Activities

Coastal Fishing: For coastal fishermen, we provide waterproof clothing, gloves, and protective accessories that offer comfort and protection from the weather conditions.

Coastal Navigation: We offer windproof, waterproof, and thermal clothing for sailing and navigating in coastal areas.

Coastal Oil and Gas Extraction: Specialized workwear that protects against the weather and ensures worker safety.

Characteristics of Inshore Clothing:

  • Weather Resistance: Helly Hansen clothing is designed to withstand wind, rain, and humidity, offering protection to users.
  • Comfort and Freedom of Movement: Designed for comfort and ease of movement, inshore clothing is ideal for activities requiring flexibility.
  • Safety: Many garments feature reflective elements and protective characteristics for increased safety.
Offshore Activities

Offshore activities take place farther from the shore, in deep waters, and require specialized clothing:

Offshore Fishing: Durable waterproof and protective clothing for fishermen working in open seas.

Offshore Oil and Gas Extraction: We equip workers with durable workwear that protects against extreme weather conditions and the hazards of the job.

Characteristics of Offshore Clothing:
