Featherweight weather protection.
The Sugoi Men's Helium Jacket isn't really lighter than air, but it does weigh in at a mere three ounces and protects you from light rain and wind. This semi-fitted, breathable jacket features laser vents under the arms so you don't get swampy as you work up a sweat. It also packs down into a super-small package, so stuffing it in your pocket as a safety precaution isn’t a big deal.
Sugoi built the Helium jacket out of its Helium fabric. The name isn’t a coincidence, as it’s featherweight, while still providing weather protection. In addition to blocking wind and rain, it’ll transport moisture to the outside of the fabric. After all, blocking rain isn’t particularly useful if you’re soaked in sweat instead. The breathability is enhanced by the mesh panels at the underarms. Aiding the protection is a DWR coating, which helps to repel light precipitation. It’s cut to fit close to your skin, while still having just enough extra room to provide freedom of motion. Think of it as an ideal backup plan for long rides when the weather forecast is anything but certain.
The Sugoi Helium Jacket - Men's is available in four sizes, from Small to X-Large, and in the colors Black, Supernova Black, and White.
