Light-Flex is proud to announce that the Expedition Parka by Helly Hansen has been recognized as the winner of the ISPO Award in the Outdoor Segment.
The Expedition Parka is Helly Hansen’s latest offering designed to withstand the ice cold conditions of winter expeditions in polar or high altitude regions. The Light-Flex active light technology panels integrated into the jacket’s arms provide an extra dimension of safety – making the wearer visible even in the absence of an external light.
ISPO is the premier global sports trade show network for products, brands and trends in the sporting industry.
The partnership between Helly Hansen (Norway) and Light-FlexTM (Sweden) began in 2015 and has resulted in not only the Expedition Parka, but also Workwear and Kids winter parkas & snowsuits – all featuring Light-Flex active light safety.
Richard Collier, Chief Product Officer at Helly Hansen, says that “Light-Flex technology is a great addition to the safety features designed into Helly Hansen products and it totally aligned with the approach we want to take in providing the best safety technology possible in the gear we offer.”
Victoria Bäcksin, CEO and Founder of Light-Flex says “We are delighted that ISPO has recognized the Expedition Parka, one of our first product releases with Helly Hansen, and hope that it is only the first of many products to come”.
Light-Flex was founded in 2015 and is the inventor and producer of Light-Flex active light safety components.
