Helly Hansen Men's Stripe Crew
A classic performance base layer, the Helly Hansen Stripe Crew for men is a favorite choice among skiers, climbers, sailors, kayakers and backpackers. Compared to traditional thermal underwear designs, the Stripe Crew is exceptionally breathable and wicks away perspiration considerably faster than some active foundation apparel. Helly Hansen applied flat lock stitching throughout their Stripe Crew to prevent chafing while wearing a backpack or climbing gear. Unlike some performance base layers, the Helly Hansen Stripe Crew has a slightly dropped hem in back for additional coverage when you're skiing or snowboarding. The Helly Hansen Stripe Crew for men features low bulk cuffs for easy glove integration, but the sleeves offer a slightly looser fit compared to the closer fit throughout the torso. Many guys view the loose sleeve fit as an added benefit, especially if they tend to roll up their sleeves after the sun dries out the morning dew.
- Three-ply HH®Dry™ technology
- Flat lock stitching to prevent chafing
- Low bulk cuffs with a loose fit throughout sleeves

Can't Be Beat
This is absolutely the best base layer you can buy. You can't beat 100% polypropylene for wicking moisture and staying warm when you're exerting yourself in cold weather. For good reason, it's Government Issue for the armed forces. And I've tried 'em all. Wool is great but can be expensive, itchy or smell. I like silk too but it's expensive and not very durable. Forget about polyester and fleece for undergarments - they don't breathe. While working in HH's Lifa underwear, your perspiration gets transported to the next layer you're wearing. Remember! It's a BASE layer. When you stop, you feel a bit clammy like in any other clothing but with polypro you don't stay wet. The next thing you know, you feel warm, dry and ready to go again. Excellent material. Excellent product. Be sure to read the labels, follow the directions and they'll last for years.

Color ids great, shirt is true to size. The UPF protection is great for year around use especially in Colorado. Great all around fitness shirt for multiple uses.

A great product
I purchased the top a few months ago and have used it running in cold weather and downhill skiing. The top does an excellent job of wicking away moisture which is key to staying warm in cold weather. A great base layer.

I use this base layer for skiing. I am 6 feet tall 175lbs and ordered a large. It fits snugly as it's supposed to and most importantly it stays dry during heavy activity. After using cotton t-shirts for years as a base layer I would always be soaked after skiing. This material does not absorb sweat and is thin enough to not be overly hot. So far I have used it down to around 0F with just a mid layer and insulated jacket without being cold even while on the lifts. Highly recommended. Just be careful not to put in in the dryer! I melted my first one.........

Does the job
This is a nice-looking top that I sometimes put on for casual wear. It's comfortable and leaves me neither too hot nor too cold. Athletic fit: I have a medium, weigh 130#, and the shirt is form-fitting.
