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!

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.

Perfect for the wetness

This is an excellent lightweight rain jacket that I highly recommend. Hiked in cold, wind, and heavy rainfall and it kept me completely dry and warm. It does keep the heat in well, also hiked in warmer temperatures and did break a sweat due to it holding heat. Overall love this jacket.

Ideal balance between functional and superlight.

As guides who are constantly hiking, we're always looking to reduce weight and bulk without compromising function. We think OR's Helium II jacket (along with the Helium II pants) are-currently-the optimal, rainwear solution.

Super Waterproof

I wore this on a wet day for a run and it worked well. Very waterproof. Kept me dry and warm.

Too short

2

This was a jacket I wanted for a long time. I have heard nothing but great things about the waterproofing and lightness of this jacket. I am so disappointed in the fit. The length is so short! I have the OR Ascendant jacket in the same size and the length is 2 inches longer! That is a problem when your mid-layer is longer than your outer layer. Sizing up will not help, it is only about a half inch difference. Please OR--- revise the length of this jacket!

Over priced for results

Seriously, no jacket should ever be made without pockets!

Near perfect. Just needs vents.

It's a great wet weather and wind blocker. Definitely needs pit zips.
