We have got a range of items on test from Helly Hansen’s Solen range including the HH LIFA Active Solen T shirt, the HH LIFA Active Solen Hoodie, the HH LIFA Active Solen Singlet and all these pieces work really well with the HH Solen Classic Watershorts we've got too.

 

The Helly Hansen Solen collection offers high tech fabrics that work to keep you cool and dry during high intensity workouts in hot conditions.  Helly Hansen have been developing fabric technology for over 140 years, so there is nothing ordinary about their kit – whether you want to keep warm or cool, they have cutting edge solutions.

 

For the Helly Hansen LIFA Active Solen T Shirt they have used their LIFA Active fabric – you might possibly have worked that much out for yourself but here is a bit more detail; LIFA Active is a light-weight fabric using 59% recycled material, the two layer construction, with hydrophobic fibres, is truly outstanding at pulling sweat away from the skin and having had the pleasure of wearing it all year round we can attest to just how good it is. 

 

The unexpected wow factor of the Helly Hansen LIFA Active Solen T Shirt is the added sun protection of UPF 50, which comes courtesy of their S.Cafe Coffee Ground Technology.  Yes, you did read that right, the S.Cafe Coffee Ground Technology, which was launched in the spring of last year, adds coffee grounds to the structure of LIFA fibres to significantly boost the sun protection.  And in case you were wondering, because these coffee grounds are a part of the LIFA filament, they never wash out.

The result is that the Helly Hansen LIFA Active Solen T Shirt is super-breathable, quick drying if it does get wet and offers the wearer protection from harmful rays.  The fit is relaxed and cut to skim and flatter the female shape, with a slightly dropped tail to cover the lower back even when you reach above your head and there is just enough stretch to work well in the gym as well as out on the trails.  The T shirt is easily smart enough to wear with jeans too and of course it is constructed with flatlock, anti-chafing seams.

 

The weather has been perfect for the Helly Hansen LIFA Active Solen T Shirt recently, so although we have been training alone and staying close to home, we have been given a real boost by the fabulous feel of this new range.  Thank you Helly Hansen for helping us stay fit and sane during this crazy time.

 

The Helly Hansen LIFA Active Solen T Shirt is the perfect layer for spring and summer activities, whether you are training indoors or outside; breathable, lightweight, odour-resistant and flattering, plus of course sun protection too – it really does have everything we would ask for and more.
