    My primary use of this raincoat is for multi-day backpacking and day hiking.
    It fits me perfect, keeps me dry and is good as a windbreaker as well.
    Exactly what I was looking for.

    Comments about Men's Helium II Jacket:

    Purchased this Helium II Jacket as my go to ultra light pack-able rain jacket for backpacking and long distance hiking. It's also turned into my go to around town light rain jacket as well. If the pricing was a bit better, I'd like to pick up the HD version as a everyday jacket that didn't need to be shoved into the convenient pocket sized carrying space and have a non wrinkled unit to wear around daily.

      This jacket is perfect for taking on extended hikes or using during the day to day commute. This jacket breathes well which is key compared to other rain jackets and is extremely lightweight. In addition, it is an excellent windbreaker and keeps you warm in moderate conditions. A must have for anyone who loves the outdoors.

      great jacket, breathes surprisingly well. while it wets out faster then a heavier shell it is very quick to dry. it layers well and i have found myself using it often as a shell layer and not just as a rain jacket. surprisingly comfortable against bare skin (used it as a bug layer on hot summer days). my only complaint is the short torso length.

          I keep this on me at all times for any long distance run in the mountains, multi-pitch climbs when rain is a possibility, day hiking, backpacking, and just basic travel. It's perfect for really everything, but skiing - even then I may break it out for warmer, high-output days.

          Super lightweight, rainproof, and breathable. I'm not sure about the durability though. Seems too light and thin for the weather-proof-ness to last very long, but time will tell.

          Sleeves are also a little long. I'm 5' 8", 160 lbs. - don't have an exact ape index, but I think it's pretty average.

            Best ultralight running jacket. I use this jacket for trail running and wet days in seattle. Performs and keeps me dry. I also war it around town for daily rain protection. For high aerobic activity, it does tend to hold some moisture inside.

              I bought this for ultra lightweight backpacking, and now i carry it at all times everywhere. Being so lightweight I thought it might have a con or two, but I have only found pros. Incredibly waterproof, very breathable, so packable, and all at a reasonable price. Thanks for making such a great piece of gear OR!

              Great rain coat and the fact it packs up so small is amazing, pretty much take it in a pack or vehicle wherever i go, just in case! Fit is a little different than other OR coats I have bought, as it feels a touch short, especially in the chest. Might just be me! All around good coat and will be testing it out here in the UK Shortly, great coat to slap in the suitcase
