HALO originates from Newline, founded in 1981 by Helge Petersen, a professional soldier in the The Danish Special Forces. With great experience from parachuting and running, he developed a unique brand focusing on innovative, functional products with a high degree of details and comfort.
Newline HALO was created in 2015, designed by Malkit Singh and Rasmus Storm. The brand is named after the parachute jump called “High Altitude Low Opening”. The brand’s DNA is functionality and design within the 3 categories: Off-duty, Training and Uniform.
The HALO design is rooted in the universe surrounding the Danish Special Forces. Especially the parachute department Aalborg Tactical Wing at Air Force Base Aalborg, where the parachutes are repaired and packed, has inspired the design and the choice of materials and colors.
