When the forecast is iffy, don’t let it interfere with your plans. These rain pants are so light and small—they pack into their own back pocket—that it’s silly not to have a pair in your pack. It’s just like the uber-compressible Helium II Jacket, but for your legs.

RATING AND REVIEWS

Perfect walking in the rain pants

5

Great for walking in the pouring rain. SUPER lightweight and packs up really small in my backpack.

Great pant but not for cycling

I have a Helium jacket and love it for it's weight, packability, and performance so I when my old cycling rain pants died I thought I'd give the Helium pant a try. I was very sad to find out that it wasn't going to be a good match for the intended use. The fit around the torso is great but the legs are too wide and too short to function well as a cycling pant. I'm debating about keeping them for other uses: camping, walking, etc as otherwise they are a great product.

Size and fit guide in numbered sizes, but the product is sized by small, medium, large, etc. What is the correct sizing for these pants?

Hi Mad, The waist is a 30" for a size Medium, it increases 3" for each additional size up and decreases 2" for each additional size down. The low hip measurement is 43.5" for a size Medium, it increases 3" for each additional size up and decreases 2" for each additional size down. The inseam is 31 for a size Medium, it increases or decreases 1" for each additional size up or down. Thanks for contacting OR,

The low hip measurement is 43.5" for a size Medium, it increases 3" for each additional size up and decreases 2" for each additional size down.

I'm wondering if these pants are durable enough and allow enough range of motion for a 14 mile round trip bike commute? Or is there a different product that would be more appropriate? Thank you!

Hi Jen, While it would get the job done, I would recommend the Women's Aspire Pants if you plan on riding in the rain (or need ventilation). The Gore-Tex Paclite material would be much more waterproof than the Pertex Shield found in the Helium Pants. Plus, the Aspire Pants feature 3/4 length, dual separating zippers that will help ventilate when you need to exhaust heat. Thanks for contacting OR,

Paul

How durable is this product? Is it meant for the occasional casual stroll in the rain or can it's waterproofing withstand days of heavy rain? How does it do with abrasion? I plan to use my rain gear in a desert environment where I might need to scramble a bit in them, putting them at risk to contact rocks on a regular basis. Are these pants up for it or should I shop for something more durable?

Brooke

Hi Brooke, I would recommend a more durable pair of rain pants. These pants are lightweight, packable, waterproof, and extremely good for flash rain type situations, however, they are not the most durable pair of pants. I would recommend the Aspire Pants, they are made of a more durable nylon, 3/4 length side zips (vs no side zips in the Helium Pants), and use Gore-Tex Paclite 2L vs Pertex Shield+ 2.5L. Thanks for contacting OR!

What size = women's size 4 pants? Sm? M?

Steph

I'd go with the size S. You can find more information about sizing here: https://www.outdoorresearch.com/us/en/size-and-fit
