Reviews Helly Hansen W Classic Move T-Shirt

Helly Hansen W Classic Move T-Shirt

This Helly Hansen top is immediately recognisable thanks to the signature stripe panels on the shoulders, and it certainly lives up to their long-standing reputation.

This tried-and-tested ‘Lifa Stay Dry’ fabric (polyester/polypropylene mix) fabric was superbly soft to touch but, as with many wicking fabrics, it does start to whiff a bit after exercising.

That said, with the exception of the alarmingly bright colour, this is a simple, functional top without any quirky design innovations that could cause distraction. Instead, there’s been a focus on fit and finish that’s first class, offering real multifunctional appeal.

It sits close to the body and is long enough not to ride up and reveal any flesh. The sleeves and seams don’t create any discomfort, probably due to the lack of any attempt to create a more dynamic aesthetic. One moot point: a smattering of mesh panelling might have reduced heat build-up at the shoulders and under the arms.
