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

So light! So waterproof!

5

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!

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.

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.

Wonderful shell for wind and rain. The Ferossi fabric is a deal maker.

Lightweight rain protection

A nice lightweight rain jacket that is easy to pack. Great for warm and wet conditions but would look at adding layers underneath with cooler temperatures

I would buy this product again and again

I have been using this product on a casual side for now, and it has worked fantastic in terms of keeping me dry. I love it! I am about to take it out on an overnight trip in the Red River Gorge. Can't wait!

Versitile ultralight shell

5

Used this jacket for the about 500 miles of hikes, including the John Muir Trail, and it has held up very well. Some ultralight backpackers carry a frog toggs rain jacket (5.7oz measured), and a Patagonia Houdini wind shirt (4.4oz measured). I just carry a Helium hybrid (8.6oz measured). While the weight and space savings are nice, the really special thing about this jacket is that it is one of the few rain jackets you can use without getting wet from either rain or sweat. Since tye Pertex Shield+ fabric also has a weave too tight for wind or bugs to bite through, this makes a very versitile a comfortable shell that adds warmth, and protects against wind, rain, and bugs!

All hail the hybrid!

Fantastic shell. I've always loved the helium, but as I burn hot I'm always melting in my shell. The addition of the soft shell sides blow off heat and I still stay dry. It's nice having a shell like this that folds up to the size of a sandwhich. I use it for hiking, belaying, alpine climbing, and bumming around town. Oh, and the black one looks sweet.

You get what you pay for

I am hiking the AT and use this jacket for rain, wind and cold. It has held up well with my backpack riding on it for 1922.6 miles, there is no sign of wear on the shoulders and it still keeps the rain out. If look forward to using if for the final 265 miles of the AT.

Smyrna, Ga.

Yes

Go to piece

It might not take the best beating in the world (read: chimneys while climbing) but it is a pretty awesome go to super light in a pinch rain and wind came and it will keep you dry kind of piece. Its light and packable so you almost forget you even had it, but then you can throw it on and kinda forget you are wearing it because it is so much more comfortable than the regular helium.
