Based out of Denmark, part of athletic brand,Newline, HALO is also a technical brand in the sense of the materials and construction used, but designed for everyday wear in urban terrain. Born out of the Danish Special Forces, former Danish Special Forces soldier Helge Peterson founded HALO's parent company Newline after a parachute jump that left his suit wet, but his parachute still dry. In 1981, after experimenting and constructing a functional running suit out of parachute nylon, Newline was born. HALO carries on the brand DNA, with a focus on details, functionality, and comfort.
