Helium II Jacket

Accidentally posted this as a comment on Beth's review, and want to repost properly:
I picked up a Helium II jacket to replace an old Patagonia wind-shirt that was only minimally water resistant even when it was brand new. This jacket weight is in the same class, packs down as small, is equally wind-resistant and superiorly water-resistant and durable. It's quickly become my go-to piece for weight-conscious, endurance events where I may need wind or water protection, and can't afford not to bring it. I'm 6'1", 185lbs, and the Large fits me well without being too tight.
