The men's Outdoor Research Helium II Jacket was built for flash-storm protection. The new Helium II is 6% lighter and 10% more breathable than its predecessor. An ultra-compressible piece you’ll never leave behind, it offers 30% more waterproof protection than the original. The Helium II is so light and packs down so small, you’ll forget it’s in your pack until you throw it on to ward off a sudden mid-route downpour.

      Comments about Outdoor Research Helium II Jacket (Men's):

      This is a super-lightweight jacket. It lacks side pockets, inner mesh, or pit zips. Not the most durable material, but it takes up little room in your pack and will keep you dry when you need it. Also, the inner coating on this jacket has a bit of a rubbery feel to it, as compared to Goretex Packlight or the new Polartec material, but if the price is right, I'd still recommend it. Great customer service from Rock/Creek on this, as they replaced my original gray/limon Hellium II jacket after the zipper prematurely went on it. I see the zipper on this updated Helium II has been improved, so I'm happy with it.

      Comments about Outdoor Research Helium II Jacket (Men's):

      I strictly bought this jacket because a waterproof jacket is a required item for a race. I have never been a big fan of waterproof jackets just because they are usually bulky and hot; and I like to stay as comfortable as possible trail running. I was completely thrown when I tried this out on a cold, wet, windy 20 mile run on the Duncan Ridge Trail! The weather was beautiful at the base, but then we entered in a cold fog with spouts of rain. This jacket is awesome! It kept me completely dry and warm throughout the entire day! I run with a Salomon Slab XT5 pack (a small running vest) and it easily packed inside without any problem. I recommend this to any trail runner that needs a light jacket!

      Comments about Outdoor Research Helium II Jacket (Men's):

      Awesome jacket! I've used it camping and hiking, and it's held up to rain and snow here in the Rockies. It's surprisingly good against the wind, and it's stowable. This thing will get thrown in every pack I ever put together from now on. It's a must have essential in the backcountry, especially if you're wanting to go ultralight.
