    Recently moved to the DC area. I'm from Houston and we don’t really need heavy coats. If we do it's for about a week in late January when everything freezes over and half the population dies. As it gets colder I need some coats, I've noticed Helly Hansen, never heard of the brand before moving here but it seems only urban folks are wearing it. I found their website and nowhere else and the prices are up there with North Face. Which leads me to the following questions:

    Are they wearing fake Helly Hansen?

    Do they sell it anywhere but online? If so, where?

    Why does it seem exclusive to urban folks? I ask cause the site is far from urban.

    I ask here cause no one seems to know what I'm talking about in person.


    TIA

    as a dmv resident and native 

    Alot of dudes wearing the windbreakers pretendin it the helly tech

    they sell at places like last stop , nordstrom etc.

    its not exclusive just a smaller brand than north face 

    just get a coat that keeps u warm i got every brand over the years to switch it up 

    but u could be just as warm in a h&m bubble coat than the helly all on preference

    Ive never seen it at Nordies.

    Is Helly Tech better than Helly Hansen?

    Im confused cause ive never seen it in a store for purchase but lots of folks are rocking it.

    Thanks for the info.

    Just some get-wit stuff man. It is just a jacket. You don't need one because you see everyone else with one

    Downtown Locker Room carries it I believe. Go to PG Plaza, I'm sure plenty of stores there will have them.
