The Helly Hansen Selsli 7/8 tights look good and feel amazing, with the addition of geometric mesh panels that add to the wicking ability and overall style.

The Helly Hansen Selsli tights are a year round gym basic but with a twist that adds both to the function and feel: a patterned mesh panel makes them a high performance and super-stylish choice for anyone who wants the best from their workout kit but without any compromise in how they look.


We’ve been working out in Helly Hansen tights for a number of years now and thought we had seen it all but these are just a little bit different and rather surprising – in a good way of course! 


Straight out of the packaging, our first impressions of the Helly Hansen Selsli tights were all about the lightness of the fabric and the very interesting addition of a mesh panel which runs down the side of the leg and around the calf.  This adds significantly to the light airy feel when the tights are worn but more importantly it adds a whole new level of wicking ability to these high performance tights. 


We have been wearing the Helly Hansen Selsli tights in the gym and out on the trail in some of the hottest weather this wonderful summer has blessed us with and without a doubt, they are the lightest, most functional tights we have had the pleasure of wearing.


Now that autumn is definitely here, we have been reaching for them when we hit the gym and for yoga classes too and it seems they are right at home whatever we do with them.  The Helly Hansen Selsli tights are our go to for all of our workouts because they feel amazing and the 7/8 length is so on point just now.  And since the mesh panels in the Helly Hansen Selsli tights have a pattern woven into them, they really add to the overall look and style of the tights. 


The technical fabric Helly Hansen have used is a featherweight 25g and together with the mesh panels they are nicely stretchy, with a second skin-like feel – they really do move beautifully with the body and there is no slipping down from the waist either.  In fact there is an internal draw string in the brightest colour you can imagine, which can add another layer of security but honestly we have never needed to use this as we found the fit so perfect that the tights stayed exactly where we wanted them to whether we were running, lifting or stretching.


Autumn is the perfect time to update some workout basics and the Helly Hansen Selsli tights will keep you feeling motivated as the nights draw in.  Helly always use highly technical fabrics for their clothing and the addition of mesh panels to these tights really lifts the function to another level while looking “a-ma-zing” too!
