New this year, the Outdoor Research Helium Hybrid Jacket is an ultralight (5.7-ounce) wind jacket equipped with waterproof, breathable Pertex® Shield+ fabric on the shoulders and hood. By massing the Pertex where it matters most, this jacket cuts down on weight so you can take it anywhere, stuffed into your pack’s smallest pocket.
Built for fast-and-light endeavours, from trail-running epics to full-on alpine assaults, the jacket’s body is made from super-light nylon that stretches, blocks wind and breathes freely when you’re pushing the pace in inhospitable conditions. The halo hood closure means reliable protection with no obstruction of vision.
The Helium Hybrid is very well featured for such a lightweight and packable piece. Features include:
-Critically Taped Seams
-Internal Front-Zip Stormflap
-Chest Pocket Doubles as Stuff Sack
-Zippered Chest Pocket
-Water-Resistant Full Center-Front Zipper
-Full Center-Front Zipper
-“Halo” Hood Closure
