Helly Hansen Skagen Polo Shirt Review

The Helly Hansen Skagen Polo shirt is a semi-technical top which is great for any external activities in the summer.

The Skagen Polo shirt is a stylish looking polo shirt with a mixed style between classic and sporty. It is made from polyester and cotton and is extremely lightweight, weighing in at only 170g.

I wore the top while mountain biking in the glorious Italian Dolomites in inter-changeable weather.  The first day was blazing hot throughout and I found the top to be light and breezy and comfortable on the skin.  It has a lovely, almost velvety smoothness to touch, and unlike some other semi-technical tops, it did not cling in parts to my body in anyway.

On my second day of mountain biking we had showers and although getting drenched, as soon as the sun came out the Skegen Polo Shirt seemed to dry very quickly.

Despite the heat and that I must have sweated buckets, at the end of the day the top still smelt reasonably okay and not, surprisingly, like a Rugby team’s changing room after a match.

I have washed the top plenty of times over the last few months and it has not lost it’s colour or shrank in the wash at all.

I wore a size Large Skagen Polo shirt as that is the size I usually get with T-shirts and found it to be good fitting.  It is not designed to be slim-fit, but it is not too baggy either – just right for me!  I also like the collar that does not crease up and get disfigured like so many other collars on Polo Shirts.

With it retailing at £50 it is on the pricey side, but like all Helly Hansen products, it is quality and you do get what you pay for.
