The Outdoor Research Men's Helium II Jacket is an ultralight waterproof jacket for emergencies on the trail and rock. The Helium II is made with Pertex Shield+ DS 2.5L, a nylon 30D ripstop with a clear laminate. This fabric allows the jacket to pack down super small, into its own chest pocket. Weighing in at an average of 6.4oz (size large), you’ll hardly notice it stowed away in your pack or clipped to your harness. The waterproof jacket protects you from unexpected rain and harsh winds so you won’t have to cut your trip short. The elastic cuffs, adjustable hood, and drawcord hem keep the fabric close to your body to prevent drafts and leakage. Outdoor adventures are much more enjoyable when you’re able to stay dry during unfortunate weather.

Products on Sale are Discontinued Styles or Colors.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So good at what it was designed for! I bought this for multi-day mountain bike trekking/touring as a windbreaker and shell and it works great. But given it is so light, it is also not a long-term, durable "daily driver". Super packable, super light, super functional! Just bought a replacement for the first one.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from yes probably give it 5 stars but I have high standards and maybe something will pop up in the future though I have no complaints and am happy except I wish it would have been cheaper but no regrets.

does the hood fold away into the collar

Asked by: Nick
Thanks for the question! Unfortunately, the Helium II does not have a feature to stow a rolled hood or tuck away the hood. I would check out the Outdoor Research Men's Foray Jacket instead. It is the lightest weight OR jacket with a stow-able hood feature. A second option after that would be the Bolin Jacket. I included links below. I hope this helps! https://bit.ly/2LUyd4T https://bit.ly/2vCOu3l

I'm about 6,3" at 175lbs is it better to go with L or M?  I'm worried L might be too baggy but M might not have long enough of sleeves 

Asked by: ap 2
We keep meeting in this strange corner of the internet, Ap Coworker here is 6' (but 195lbs) - athletic build. He said the sleeves are great on the jacket (he bought a large) but the torso kind of comes up short on him when he raises his arms. The large is not terribly bulky, but he is able to wear a close cut fleece under it, but not a puffy. He's got 20 pounds on you, though, so it would be a bit more billowy. I would just be concerned about the torso length not working out for you in this case. Unless you can see to it that you NEVER raise your arms again - then it will be great!
