Product Description Item No.   10334353

The Outdoor Research Men's Helium Hybrid Hooded Jacket is a hardshell/softshell hybrid for lightweight, breathable protection through the rain. Pertex® Shield fabric is a 2L, 100% nylon fabric, keeping weight down while remaining waterproof, so you stay dry when hiking the storms. To help prevent overheating, Ferrosi fabric has been placed at the underarms and side panels, allowing heat to escape more easily. Winning combination? I think so. Pull up that hood, zip up the front and battle through the wet, rainy day on the trail. Completely packable into the left hand pocket for non-rainy days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good! Lightweight & Breathable I was skeptical of the ferrosi stretch material under the arms, but the DWR coating on it can push away water. I believe that water shouldn't linger in those places long enough to soak through, but it is something to be conscious of in a downpour. It is as the name says, a hybrid, and it is a great balance of breathability and lightweight which I was looking for when I travel I prefer my rain jackets a bit larger, incase I'm layering, and also for additional length, so i sized up to a M, but it seems tighter than my Arc'teryx in an M.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Close to perfect For reference I'm 6'0/205lbs. and bought the L. The jacket is windproof, waterproof in at least light rain (that's all I've had the chance to experience thus far), and breathable (very). Good arm length, torso could be a tad longer. All in all I love my purchase and would buy it again. It is a little (and I mean little) snug under the arms and around the waist. I think an XL would have been too big for me however. I wish there was a size between L and XL.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So light! So waterproof! I love this for running, hiking, skiing on warmer days, and just throwing on for a stroll around town! The breathable fabric under the arms is a fantastic idea and vents the jacket beautifully. I love all the zipper pockets to keep my gear in place while running, and the hood is a great design for heat control! I've used this in windy and wet conditions and I've stayed dry every time!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb comfort and breathability The OR Helium Hybrid jacket (size small) has thus far accompanied me on a backpacking trip to Big Bend NP, Tejas, where it helped keep me warm in the chilly-ish mornings and evenings, AND it helped keep me arms safe from the attack of the spiky desert vegetation! I was VERY pleasantly surprised and impressed at its "toughness"-- the fabric seems to be quite sturdy and resilient, despite how light and airy it feels. I've also worn it while trail-running, and it really does breathe better than unicorn fur--which is to say that it breathes exceptionally well. No clammy, clingy feelings with this jacket. The fit is pretty slim, which suits me, since I'm pretty "slim pickins" meself, and find that I can wear a layer or two of light-medium insulation underneath without feeling like a stuffed sausage. It packs down wee small-like, and is nice'n light, too--quite the marvel of OR technology, I daresay. The light blue/red version has a groovy retro vibe to it, too. Not quite Austin Powers, but getting there. (More like Jim Carrey's "juice man", so, very classy indeed). I have yet to wear it in a downpour (those are rare in west-texas), but in a light sprinkle, the jacket managed to keep the outside moisture outside, just like it's supposed to! Yay! For the uses I've put it through: rock climbing, running, and backpacking, it has earned the EXCELLENT piece of gear award.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Short sleeves, wide body, return is difficult. I am 6'4, 220lb and I tried an XL. The sleeves were too short, and the body was too wide. This is not cut for longer/lean people. Disappointing, because I had heard very good things about how well hybrid materials worked with each other.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Lightweight and waterproof I use this overtop of my Verismo Hooded Down Jacket when it rains. It is super lightweight, packs down to nothing and is waterproof. has breathability down the sides so unsure of it's 100% waterproof efficiency in a downpour. Haven't had it long enough to test it in that regard.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light, slim fit, stylish, waterproof, A+ I was looking for something that has everything in my review title. I hope its durable over time, too. OR has outstanding support though so I'm not worried. Nice price and shipping quick from MS, too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Winner Wonderful shell for wind and rain. The Ferossi fabric is a deal maker.

Is this jacket (Pertex Shield) PFC free?

Asked by: MassimoR
Hiya MassimoR, thanks for your question! Yes, it most certainly is. In fact, all Outdoor Research brand jackets are PFC free! Hope this helps!
