Helly Hansen Dry Revolution U Neck Base


No one does base layers like Helly Hansen and they have delivered another winner with the seamless, lightweight and ultra-breathable Dry Revolution U neck base.

We were really impressed with the Helly Hansen Dry Revolution long sleeved base layer that we reviewed here and so we were keen to try the Helly Hansen Dry Revolution U Neck base in warmer conditions.


To say we were pleased with the performance of this base would be a huge understatement.  Our tester Jan Birkmyre, loves the feel, fit and function so much she will be wearing this base layer for racing all season and given just how many she has to choose from, that is high praise indeed!


40 years developing technical fabrics gives Helly Hansen a bit of a head start on the rest when it comes to offering the ultimate base layer.  For the Dry Revolution they have used their Lifa Stay Dry technology in a mesh construction, which works to move moisture away from your body and this in turn keeps you dry and comfortable.


The allergy neutral Lifa fabric used in this base feels wonderfully soft next to the skin and is a real pleasure to wear.  We have trained really hard in this base, but it seems the wicking qualities of the fabric can work even harder, moving sweat away from the body before we began to feel wet or get cold.


We loved the seamless design, a genuine step forward and the surest way of avoiding any chafing, and the super stretch fabric gives a close fit accommodating all our curves, without any restriction of movement.  We have been wearing it under race-fit jerseys and even a skin-suit and found that it allows for even the most aero of clothing to be worn without any unsightly bulges – at least none that are from this base layer! – and the generous length allows for a good tuck in too.


For once you even get a choice of colour that is not restricted to either black or white.  Colours include Ice Blue, Soft Pink and Black, and the fact that it can be washed at 40 degrees makes it easier to look after too.


The Helly Hansen Dry Revolution U Neck base is a lightweight, feminine, breathable, seamless base layer that is just begging to be worn again and again this summer.  We reckon you deserve one in every colour!
