You'll love these pants!


These were for my hubby. He has been very impressed.

These pants are mint


I use the Helium set for a blow out bag in my work rig. They are ultra light, reliable, and pack down easily into a small pack. There is no excuse not to carry these pants (and top). The water proofing is equal to goretex, breathability is better then goretex, and so far they have taken several hard hits bushwacking through the woods and have held up fine.

Lightweight and keep you dry


Small enough to thrown on when the weather changes!

Out standing pants.


These pants are the best. You can wear them all day and stay dry and comfortable.

Well done...highly recommended!


Super light and super dry. Thankful I had this piece during the monsoon season in the Grand Canyon. It worked like a charm and the light weight makes you forget your packing it, just like the Helium Jacket.



Bad Fit


I use this for both Canoeing and Hiking. Upon first wearing it I realized that it was not fitting well as in on the small side. I took it out on it's first expedition and ripped them the first week of a 4 week expedition. On the other side they were water proof still after several bad stitch jobs.

Great bottoms


Great to have with you at all times. Lightweight and waterproof. What more could you ask for? Plus with OR infinite guarantee how could you go wrong? Highly recommend these pants coupled with the helium hd

Easy n -" easy off - Size carefully


A size large perfctly fit my size 33 waist. The little excess length didn't matter because it rode on my backpacking boots. Waist stayed in place, very nice. Easily got over my size 9 zamberlan vioz backpacking boots. To get on or off in under a minute, unzip the leg, lean against a tree or rock standing on the other leg, gather the pants leg in hands, pull over boot and leg, zip down. Switch legs and repeat.



Good emergency waterproof pants


I bought the menï¾'s Helium pants last summer before OR released a womenï¾'s version, so I canï¾'t really comment on the fit. I used the Helium pants one summer and while they stayed in my pack most of the time, they performed very well whenever I had to use them, including one instance of 5 hours of continuous heavy rain! Because the fabric is so thin, the Helium pants are more fragile compared to other waterproof pants I own: small sections of the stitches along the elastic waist band have already come undone, and the taped seams have been cutting through the fabric slowly causing little holes that I had to patch. Itï¾'s not a super big deal in my option since I do not intend to use these pants as my main waterproof pants on multi-day trips, but I just need to be careful when using them. Because of that, I gave the Helium pants 4 stars.


Great for bikepacking


Super light and super compact they are well built and will fit over pants. I have only had them over long underwear. Stopped rain, wind, snow even a nasty sand storm. they are breathable and durable enough for the money. there is a trade weight for strength, but for me it as just right
