RATING AND REVIEWS

Size up this season, new fit coming in fall.

5

The overall fit is definitely trim, but it is proportionally trim. So I sized up from a small to a medium and its PERFECT. I would recommend (and have recommended) this jacket to people and advised them to size up for this season's fit. The length is great even on a 5' 1" lazy athletic build that wear's small/4 in all OR product. Can't wait to sport it in the Seattle weather this fall! love the color ;) and the subtle logo. The pockets are super functional and the hood is perfect.

Very cute but SO SMALL!

This coat is very stylish but the fit is so small, I even ordered a size larger.

Very lightweight

Even thought it is advertised as a casual jacket it held its own wilderness backpacking in Norway in May. I typically wear a small in jackets and ordered a medium based on other reviews. I am glad I did! I am able to wear a puffy or fleece under the jacket but the upper sleeves are just a tiny bit tight. I definitely recommend sizing up. Overall great for backpacking as well as casual use.

Size is way off

Usually, I love 'trim fit' clothing. I have a small chest, narrow shoulders and straight hips. That is why I ignored all the other comments to size up. I can't believe Outdoor Research would call this "Standard Fit." The jacket is already mid-thigh length and sizing up would mean adding another inch to the length. Sadly, I will be returning this jacket.

I have worn it everywhere!

I have brought this jacket on all of my travels for the last year and love it! I have worn light weight down underneath and a sundress in the rain. It goes with everything, It is stylish and long enough to cover in a heavy downpour. Goes great with jeans or dress. It packs up small and is easy to slip into your pack for use later. Also great for around town, simple, trim, it looks good!

Super light and waterproof

This jacket is super lightweight. The fit runs really small - I ended up getting an extra large, which is a bit too big for me, but I wanted to be able to layer the Longitude hoody under it (the large was too tight and puckery with the hoody under it; I'm 5'6" and 175lbs). I also originally bought the Envy jacket and absolutely hated the pockets (all the wrong angles!). The Helium jacket is a great alternative; much better pockets!

Great cut and super light

Perfect trim fit and almost weightless. Relatively trim arms so not alot of room for layering but perfect warm weather rain shell and perfect for travelling. Well done

I usually take a size 8 jacket so I ordered a Medium. I could barely zip this up it was so tight. I wish all of OR's products ran true to size. It's very hard to deal with online.

Trim fit

I just received this gorgeous rain jacket and I love everything about it; the quality of the product, the length, the lightness of the fabric... However, even though the site indicates this piece is a 'standard fit', it does not fit like my regular Helium rain jacket, that I can wear over a warm layer on cold, wet days. This longer version is snug at the waist and I cannot fit it over a warm layer. I would classify this as a 'trim fit' instead.

Discussions

How does this jacket hold up in winter weather?? I'm looking for a jacket that can transition from winter to early spring weather. Is this jacket warm enough with layers underneath?

Sierra

Sierra, the Helium jacket is an outer waterproof shell that will do just find in winter weather, it will just need to be paired with some insulation as it does not provide any in its construction

Q&A_Admi

What is the length of the jacket? Shoulder to bottom hem. Thanks

Vette

The center back length of the Helium Traveler Jacket in size XS is 29.5"; for each size above that, add one inch.

RE: WOMEN'S HELIUM TRAVELER JACKET https://www.outdoorresearch.com/us/en/womens-helium-traveler-jacket/p/2441080008006 Has anyone tried trail running in this long jacket? (I think people have reported running in the shorter jacket style.) My thought is to take only one jacket for all-around summer/tropical traveling and sports. Thanks in advance!

RC

I don't think I would recommend trail running in a thigh-length jacket. I'd go with either the Helium II or Helium Hybrid: https://www.outdoorresearch.com/us/en/womens-helium-ii-jacket/p/2438230609005 https://www.outdoorresearch.com/us/en/womens-helium-hybrid-hooded-jacket/p/2546010001005
