The Outdoor Research Women's Helium HD Jacket is a super light waterproof jacket for climbing and hiking. When you need more features in a lightweight package, the Helium HD steps up and solves the problem. The Pertex Shield+ fabric is 30D ripstop for durability and provides 100% waterproof and wind protection out in the backcountry. Two hand pockets and a single chest pocket keep snacks and headlamp at hand. When the temperature heats up but the rain continues to pour, open the pit zips for fast venting where you need it most. The adjustable hood with brim keeps rain drops from hitting you in the eye. When the weather clears up, stuff it into its own pocket and play a game of catch, or clip it to your pack and continue on the trail.

Best lightweight rain jacket on the market!This is the perfect lightweight rain jacket to stash in your climbing, backpacking, or skiing pack, or just clip onto your harness. Itâs so lightweight, you donât even notice youâre carrying it! It has the OR armpit zips right down to your waist so itâs easy to get some added breathability without compromising access to your rack on your harness. The lightweight wire in the hood also helps give the hood some added form for keeping the rain out of the eyes; however, after much abuse, the wire has broken in 2 places but the function is still all there. I love ORâs stuffing system on most jackets, including this one, where you can stuff the jacket into the pocket and use the loop and clip (or your own biner) to clip it to your harness or on the outside of a pack.,,,,Iâm 5â3â and about 135lbs and normally wear my OR jackets in a S, but got this one in a M to fit over my down jackets too. This setup works great and avoids me having to carry an extra jacket in the alpine.
