The original look with modern technology.

Pros and recreational athletes alike flock to the stripes of the Helly Hansen Stripe Crew Top, which is recognized as the classic technical baselayer. Thanks to Lifa Stay Dry Technology and Helly Hansen’s HH Dry layer, the Stripe Crew quickly pulls moisture away from your body so you can maintain comfort and warmth even during aerobic activity in the cold. Low-bulk cuffs and flatlock stitching mean this baselayer is comfortable under a shell or mid-layer.

Works great!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: small

I have 2 of these and they served me well ranging from cold weather cycling to snowboarding. It feels comfortable against the skin and really wicks away moisture - all throughout my snowboarding trip I didn't get sweaty nor did I feel like I needed any extra layers (LIFA + mid weight fleece mid layer + Burton Radial Gore-Tex jacket).

Sizing wise it's what I would call a performance or slim fit - small fits me fine, it's just that I'm on the chubby side of things. If you have a more slender/athletic build (but not too muscular) than I, it should fit true to size. Besides, a wicking layers needs to fit a bit tighter to work, right?

More of a midriff baring shirt

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Large

At 6'2", ~198lbs, ~37" waist, I would seem from the sizing chart to fall entirely smack in the middle of the Large size. So I thought I was safe ordering Large but it was way too small and only came down barely to the top of my pants so anytime I breathed it showed my midriff....not exactly the style I was going for.

Does this shirt have UV protection?

Great Base Layer

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: XL

This is a great base layer. It keeps you warm while wicking away the moisture. The shirt does run small though. I initially ordered a large and had to return it for an XL. The shirt does have an athletic fit and that fits me perfectly because I am muscular and lean. Overall, this shirt rivals the Patagonia base layers I have and it is only half the price.

Runs small

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small

Really, really small. It fits like a men's medium. So, order 2 sizes up.

Comfy

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: <edium

This is a very comfortable under garment. Some have bulky seams, or are really tight and uncomfortable. This is a slim fit, but not a TIGHT fit, and comfortable against the skin. Have not tested it in a wide range of temps yet.

Incredible Wicking!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I got this base layer for backpacking the Pemi loop in NH this October and I am so glad I did. I was amazed at how well this wicks sweat away from your skin. I remember at one point on the way up Mt. Lafayette I was dripping sweat from my forehead and when I touched my shirt it was barely damp. Its also very comfortable. Can't wait to wear it snowboarding this winter!

Thank you Eric for a valuable review

Cant wait to use this for skiing

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This seems like a great base layer for skiing. I cant wait to break it out and see how it holds up on the slopes. Im 5-7 and the medium fits me perfectly. This shirt is very comfortable and the stitching doesn't cause any irritation.

A Staple Piece

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

This is one of my go-to pieces of clothing since it has such a wide range of uses and the mix of insulation to breath-ability is incredible. I can wear this as a baselayer under my warmer cloths and it breaths perfectly, but can also be used as a stand alone piece when it starts to get warm and still keep in the heat. The fit on this is great as well with it being athletic and on the tighter side of things. Over-all this has to be one the best base layers I have.

My Fave

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Size Bought: XL

This is my go-to for skiing. I like the snug yet stretchy fit. It's pretty long, which is great because stays tucked into my bottoms. Like others have mentioned, it does run small. For most casual shirts, I wear a L. I've got this in an XL and it fits perfectly.

Keeps you dry

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

I have a couple of these, and have bought them as gifts for the family. It's well made, lightweight and extremely breathable. The Medium fits me perfectly and makes a great layering piece.

The standard base layer

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

I've taken this layer on a couple of tours and it kept me pretty dry on the sweaty ascents. I've also taken this to the resort on a few very chilly days. This layer handled both situations very well and comes at a good price point. My only suggestion would apply who wants something very warm for strictly downhill skiing, in which case I would recommend the merino wool version of this.

Hard to beat the classics

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
  • Fit: Runs small

This Helly Hansen stripe crew top has been a staple in skiers closets for years, and it's no wonder; it works well, is comfortable, and a completely functional piece while looking good.

I bought one for my dad for Christmas to add to his layering pieces for skiing, and he's loving it so far. As others have mentioned, it does run a touch small, which may be what you're looking for from a layering piece, but if you're not looking for the next-to-the-skin style fit, size up.

What a Layer

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

Great for wearing as a ski layer! So warm and fits tightly. Wear this every time I ski under my jacket. Also functions as a running shirt!

Use it anywhere

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Medium

From Autumn trail running, to ski touring, to skiing on the mountain this top breathes well and does it all. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a great base layer. I would not say it works for well indoor workouts. But outside (which is where we want to be!) it is great! I went with a Medium and it is fine. Probably could have gone with a small too for a more snug fit.

Keeps Ya Warm & Looks Cool

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: large

This thing keeps you warm. It's tight fitting and makes you look slender. That's my favorite part. After a ski day, you can take off your jackets, strip down to just this crew top and know you look good!

You can cruise the bar, grab some food, get weird at Apres ski and know you're looking good.

This is the real point of a base layer, people. To look good in the bar apres ski, am I wrong?

Yeah, yeah, yeah, it's also warm and wicking and great for skiing and I've worn everyday this season.

Even more important that all above: it's comfy. Base layers that itch or bunch = no bueno. This piece feels like a part of me and I don't even notice it's on.

Classic

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: XL

I use this base layer most often in the spring for ski mountaineering. Usually in the spring it isn't quite as cold. I also use it for summertime adventures in the mountains. Works great as the extra shirt for warmth on a night of backpacking. When the weather is a lot colder I usually wear the "Warm Ice" version of this shirt that has a marino wool blend, but this is perfect for when it is cold-to-cool out. HH has been making this shirt for years and has steadily improved the wicking properties of the fabric/weave.

What happened to HH?

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: xxl

I used to love this brand. LOVE. 3 winter jackets by them. I have sweaters, cargos, shirts,.....etc. I ordered and XXL. It was more like a large. It's laughable how small it was. Why are we redefining sizes? The initial feel and look are ok but I will never buy this brand again. They are turning into a somewhat lazy/cheesy brand. Sorry to say that but they are no where near where they used to be. I can't size up. I'm skinny. A triple X is like a circus tent, but HH would be more like a large anyways. Too many other brands putting out high quailty gear.

PS. They worst zippers in the industry.

Runs short...

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

I like this base layer but it runs short!! I did end up buying the next size up. So I did put my money where my mouth is. Happy with the lager size.

Sweet Baselayer!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I just spent two weeks skiing in the Italian Alps with this shirt and it did a job for me. This was a terrific baselayer that kept me warm and dry in most conditions I faced.



Even when I got sweaty during high-output skiing off-piste at Courmayeur I dried out very quickly. I never smelled bad or stayed damp coming off the hill at the end of the day. The seams never chafed, and the shirt still looks new after a couple washes.



Personally, I prefer this type of thinner base layer with a medium to high-loft mid-layer and shell. I don't like thicker base layers next to my skin. I am 5'7", 180, mostly muscle, and the medium fits me like a glove.



Note that I have the prior model with the huge HH logo on the chest. I like the looks better, but it does interfere a bit with breathability.
