RATING AND REVIEWS

Zipper failed

4

This jacket held up pretty well to the rain until day 3 of use when the zipper split open. Then it wouldnt zip and it was a major bummer trying to stay dry hiking in the rain with the jacket hanging open. If the zipper worked better, I'd give this 5 stars!

Light-as-air rain jacket

4

Really like this jacket. Extremely light and packable. Comfortable for hikes, bicycling, skiing, and just being outside. Love the extra extended built-in visor on the hood and front pocket for easy retrieval of items. Would have given it five stars, but...it really needs more pockets and the arm cuffs are not adjustable to prevent rain from entering the sleeves while biking. All in all, though, this rain jacket is by far the best jacket I've owned for a very fair price. The womens' Ultraviolet color is beautiful too. Thanks, OR!

works great in the Olympic rain forest

The Helium was rec'd by a friend for aerobic pursuits in not ideal weather. I have worn it only once so far, on a 56 day backpack in the Olympics, with the last 2 days of persistent rain forest showers and wet shrubbery. It worked fabulously. I was never too warm or too cold or too wet.

Sweet Jacket!

Super lightweight and breathable rain jacket perfect to take on backcountry days when you want to keep weight/space to a minimum. Super impressed with how waterproof it is...kept me bone dry during several very wet hikes.

This is the only jacket you need for rainy or windy weather! It is so light weight and packable also. Even in the heat of summer it breathes but keeps you dry.

Perfect packable jacket

5

Great jacket to stuff in my pack (and my purse!) Haven't had to use it in a complete downpour yet to see how long it keeps me dry, but for the "just in case" purpose, it's exactly what I need. Love that it stuffs into its own attached pouch.

perfect running jacket - except the zippers keep blowing out

4

I love this jacket. So much. It is so close to the perfect option for trail running. BUT, the zippers fail. I'm on my 3rd one of these jackets because the zippers blow out. OR will replace for free but it feels very wasteful to keep sending these in when all they need to be absolutely perfect is a stronger zipper!

Functional, lightweight, and cute!

5

I have owned this jacket for the past 3 summers and bring it with me anywhere! It is lightweight and packs down very small so can fit in any small pack or even a pocket! Living in Colorado, I bring this rain jacket with me everywhere in the case for a random shower. It has kept me warm and dry though many summer mountain rain and hail storms. It is durable and also very cute. I recommend that every person has one of these rain coats for summer use.
