We love our armpit zips as much as the next active rainshell-wearer, but with the Helium Hybrid Hooded Jacket, we decided to try something new for the trail: breathable soft-shell Ferrosi fabric where rain doesn’t fall—under the arms. It blocks moisture like our award-winning Helium Jacket up top, and breathes like our athlete-favorite Ferrosi Jacket underneath. Go forth and enjoy dry shoulders and armpits.

RATING AND REVIEWS

Excellent light weight jacket!

5

I had to return my original size (L) as it was too snug but went up one of my usual size (XL) and it fits great now. Love it for biking in wet weather.

Ultralight outer layer

5

Extremely lightweight, the addition of the stretchy breathable panels make this a perfect outer layer for rainforest hikes or trail-runs in the unpredictable Washington spring.

This is a wonderful active windproof and waterproof shell

I got this for cycling specifically, but it's good I'll be using it for running and hiking too!

Works as designed

Comfortable and packs small. Stayed mostly dry in moderate rain.(Side panels aren't waterproof). Dumps heat well. Medium fits my 5'9" ~150 lb. frame with room to layer. Stretch panels make movements easier. Hood adjusts well. Blocked wind well enough on bike rides. Will report back when cold weather returns.

Driest I've been in a rain jacket.

Typically, if I'm active while I'm wearing rain gear I get wet, either from the rain or my own perspiration. The hybrid is the closest I've come to staying dry in a rain jacket. I've not worn it in real heavy downpours, but it keeps me dry in moderate rains and drizzle and the breathable portions do a good job venting perspiration. I wouldn't mind it if the breathable side panels were a little larger for better venting, but again that might compromise it shedding water.

little short in the sleeves

Currently just casual use around town. I like the lightweight stowaway features of the jacket. Gonna take it instead of my gortex shell next skimo mission (spring,summer)

Very light and versatile jacket!

5

Fantastic jacket to throw in when you don't know what the weather is going to be like. Great in wind, rain, etc. Repels moisture AND is very breathable. I use this mostly for trail running, and it rolls up small and light when I stuff it into my vest or pack. It's a great looking jacket too so I end up wearing it a lot when I'm out and about or at work.

Great addition to my trail running gear

Light & breathable. Perfect for the spring/fall runs, where you need to keep off the wind & sprinkles. Nice pockets for carrying ID, key fob...

Discussions

does it come in XXL

wondering wanderer

the helium hybrid did get produced in the XXL size, however this model has been discontinued and is currently on clearance

Kassie

Does the hood on the helium hybrid roll up or otherwise tuck away when not needed/wanted? Does it do so on regular helium jacket? If not are there any OR light / packable rain jackets that do? 2nd question, is this jackets packed size same as regular helium? 3rd question, hand warmer pockets appear in photo if hybrid but not regular, am I seeing/ interpreting this correctly ? Thanks, look fwd to your answers to narrow my choice, Chris

Chris

Hi Chris, Sorry for the late response. The hood of the Helium Hybrid does not have a feature to stow a rolled hood or tuck away the hood. It does not do this on the Helium II either. Our lightest weight jacket that has a stow-able hood feature is the Foray, followed by the Bolin, then Furio, and finally Maximus. The Helium Hybrid packs a little bigger than the Helium II due to the materials of the Hybrid. The Helium Hybrid does have zippered hand warmer pockets, the Helium II does not have any hand warmer pockets. I think the best solution would be to roll the hood (of the jacket that doesn't have the stow-able feature), clip a plastic hook clip/carabiner on the shock cord and hook it to the coat hanger hook. Another option, although it isn't aesthetically pleasing, you might be able to stuff the hood in coat hanger cord. Thanks for contacting OR, Paul
