Product Description Item No.   10237625

The Outdoor Research Men's Helium HD Jacket is a lightweight rain shell for backpackers and climbers that require more features in wet weather. The Helium HD uses Pertex Shield+, a 2.5 layer, 100% nylon, 30D ripstop fabric that cuts down the weight while remaining 100% waterproof. Whether you’re blocking a hard rain or whipping wind, the jacket stands up to it with water-resistant zippers and a fully adjustable Halo Hood. The Helium II is stripped down, where the Helium HD adds pit zips, zippered hand pockets, and Velcro cuffs. The large still only weighs in at just slightly over nine ounces and still packs down super small, saving weight and space in your pack.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Super light but can't cinch neck area to stop rain I've tried a few jackets from OR and they are very well made. However many of their jackets seemed to be designed for alpine climbing. This means the hood is designed with a climbing helmet in mind. I had hoped I could cinch the hood, especially in the neck area to block wind and rain. However, without a helmet on It was impossible. The OR Forray jacket does work well without a helmet if you're looking to hike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rain Rain! G away! I bought three rain jackets for an impending AT Thru hike: (1) Arcteryx Beta SL Hybrid, (2) Patagonia Stretch Rainshadow; and (3) OR Helium HD. While I have yet to try them out in an actual driving rain, I opted for this one for the hike due to its features, weight and price. Simply It pasts muster on all counts....and did the best in my "shower stall" test.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice jacket Christmas gift, haven’t worn it yet but it is true to size and appears like it’ll go the mile

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lightweight!!! I purchased this jacket for its light weight and features such as pit zips. I decided to get the xl instead of the large so that I can wear it over a vest or down jacket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Without a doubt my new favorite jacket It my new Fav. Though I haven't had a chance to test for a season, this has been a great early fall jacket. I have worn in torrential downpoor of rain/hail while fly fishing (lasted about 45 min). Worn in the stands of a soccer game during continuous rain (2 hour). Water only started seeping through the membrane at the end of the soccer game, and only minimal. Pit zips are fantastic and what cased my to get it. Extremely lightweight and packable. Thin enough for hiking in warm weather but need layers for anything under 50 deg.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from There when you need it. Being an outdoor adventure guide, I have quite a few jackets. Being prepared with the right technical clothing is as important as any other piece of equipment in my pack. But when weather could go either way, I would rather have a 'just in case' piece of rain gear that doesn't take up too much space. The Helium HD fits the bill. So compact I hardly notice it, but just as well finished as my hard shell. This is a great piece of kit!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good I bought the Helium HD a few weeks ago. It started pouring out a few days ago so I decided to take it out and test the jacket. So far so good! After 10 minutes in a light shower it’s holdingbup well. Granted it was not a tree tail down pour however it’s living up to expectations. I like this jacket over the Helium II due to the pit zips and side pockets. It’s a few more ounces but worth it. Rain gear can get you heated up pretty quickly when hiking on trails.

How would you expect this jacket to breathe compared to a Goretex shell?

Asked by: Matchewy
Hey there, This is a very breathable jacket that would work in a variety of conditions and has excellent temperature and moisture managements. Because the breathability of any waterproofing treatment like Gore-Tex is partly dependent on the material the jacket itself is constructed from I can't give a general rating in comparison, but the waterproofing treatment on this jacket works just as well as your standard Gore-Tex shell.
