Numbers, letters, words? Everything has a meaning .. and thus, a story.
This story begins in 1981, when Newline founder Helge Petersen during his time in the Hunter Corps one day hangs in a parachute between heaven and earth and ponders why his clothes are wet while the parachute is dry. Helge's journey in active wear starts right there, and three decades later, HALO is a tribute to Helge and Newline's history.
HALO – High Altitude, Low Opening
One of two parachute jumping techniques where the jumper opens his parachute at low altitude after a while of free fall. HALO. A method used by the military from a transport aircraft to supply military personnel, military equipment and other supplies.
HALO offers innovative design in a high quality with strong inspiration from the Danish Jægerkorpset. The design is timeless, robust and lasts season after season. HALO is created for passionate and confident individuals for whom exercise is a dedicated and holistic lifestyle. Wearing HALO is a conscious choice and above all a personal statement.
ATW – Aalborg Tactical Wing
The name of the building where the special forces' parachutes are repaired and approved at Aalborg Airport. The parachutes are made of nylon, and all ATW styles from HALO are tech-wear made of synthetic, dry-fit materials.
223 – Bygning 223 på Air Force Base Aalborg
This is where the responsible rig in charge of packing the parachutes' workshop belongs. Building 223 is also home to the training of soldiers who are to carry out air missions for the armed forces.
HALO brings functionality and urban aesthetics to the next level - strongly inspired by the Danish Jægerkorpset.
The silhouettes are masculine, minimalistic and targeted Scandinavian firstmovers that cultivate the individual and the multifunctionality.
FUT – Fysisk Uddannelse og Træning (Physical Education and Training)
A military acronym for the original training program that many soldiers have trained time and time again in the military.
The special operations forces are the military elite and this is therefore extremely selective, just as the competition for admission is fierce. It is enormously demanding, both mentally and physically, to participate in the selection process and become an elite soldier. Only about 10% make it through and become full members of the corps.
HALO is strength, precision and functionality - tailored to the determined athlete who does not see training as a hobby, but a lifestyle. The dedicated sportsman who sets high standards for himself and has a true passion for being active.
