WINNER - Win an Outdoor Research Helium II Jacket Competition

© Outdoor Research

WINNER: CreagDhu

Total protection from sudden downpours, flash-storms and just plain bad luck!

Built for flash-storm protection, the 100% waterproof Helium II Jacket is a staple style of the Outdoor Research gear closet. Made from highly breathable Pertex® Shield fabric, this minimalist jacket is strong for its incredibly light weight and has a soft supple feel that makes it great to wear as a windproof. Crucially, this ultra-compressible jacket stows down small enough to clip to your harness or carry in your pack, so you’re ever ready for sudden downpours. Weighing in at just 180g for a men’s large, and 156g for a women’s medium, you can easily see why there’s no reason to leave home without it.
