Whether you are located in North America, Scandinavia, or all the way on the other side of the world in Antarctica, it’s probably not exactly flip flops and shorts weather outside.  With the hottest gear from Helly Hansen and other top brands now available in the gCaptain store, there is no need to worry about freezing when you step out your front door, or on the bridge wing.

On the coldest of days there is nothing that quite gives you that warm and cozy feeling like a down jacket.  For men we have the stylish and lightweight Helly Hansen Verglas Down Insulator.  For women Helly Hansen offers a full length version called the Verglas Down Coat Insulator.  Both products feature a 700+ down fill for the warmest and lightest insulation you can find.

If you spend 12 hours a day on your feet exposed to the elements, then you are going to want  to make sure you have the right base layers to keep you warm and comfortable.  gCaptain offers Helly Hansen ‘s Lifa Dry to actively move moisture away from your skin and towards your outer layer in order to evaporate and also Lifa Warm, which has the same technology but an added layer of Merino Wool for extra warmth.

Any of you skiers?  Yep, we thought so.

Helly Hansen has a ski jacket for everyone whether you are a weekend warrior or a diehard skiing fanatic.  The Helly Hansen Alpha Jacket is one of the top men’s ski jackets combining the waterproof and breathable Helly Tech Professional outer layer with the H2 Flow air ventilation system on the inside that regulates your body temperature so you can be comfortable on the slopes during any weather variables.   For a trendy women’s piece that is still a high performance jacket ready to be worn cruising on the slopes we have the Helly Hansen Motion Jacket.  Fully insulated with Primaloft this waterproof and breathable jacket is both warm and quite stylish.

Are your hands and ears perpetually cold?  We have you covered there too with Seirus-brand balaclavas, Dakine work gloves and Smartwool gCaptain Beanies.

For the ultimate extreme cold weather protection while working outdoors, try the Alta Insulated Jacket, is a Hi Visibility Jacket with fleece inside the collar, a storm flap with zip closure and inner chest pocket.  This jacket has pants that correspond with the coat.  If you’re looking for a longer warmer coat, the Potsdam Jacket is the same length as a parka and the hood is made to fit a hard hat under it.
