Newline HALO was established in 2015 and is designed by Malkit Singh and Rasmus Storm. Newline itself, was founded in 1981 by the professional soldier Helge Petersen, who – with his great experience – developed the innovative brand. The name HALO originates from the parachute jump "High Altitude Low Opening", and the collections are based on functionality and high performance. The color scheme and material choice evolve from parachutes and is formed in the environment connected to the military air force base in Aalborg. HALO collections are tested in collaboration with the Danish Special Forces.
