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.

I really like this products cause it's really light so you can put on a small pocket and when it's time to use it, it's really easy to take!

Helium hybrid review

4

Lost my first Helium and bought the hybrid to replace it. Mostly keep it in my day pack for mt biking, hiking, spring skiing and to have an extra layer in the car. Pros-like the under arm panels, pockets are a plus, packable Cons-not crazy about the zipper w/flap vs the water proof zipper on the original, cuffs are bigger and sag onto my hands when the shell gets wet Still a great jacket for staying warm and mostly dry in moderate temperatures

Lightwieght Jacket

Very light weight. Still too cold without layers underneath but looking for Spring time use with light rain.

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!

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.

A Winner

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

Discussions

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

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
