Why We Like The Helium Down Jacket

We zip into the Helium Down Jacket when scaling rock and ice for a better view. The tightly woven fabric balances weather resistance and breathability while also holding its own against the vertical world's rough terrain. The elastic cuffs stay out of our way as we swing our axes, and the lofty fill protects us from the exposure's chill.

Second skin

This jacket is exactly what I hoped for. Because I run and hike in Northern California winter weather I needed something breathable, warm, and flexible. This jacket is so light and comfortable it feels like a second skin. Thank you OR!

Great combo of Fit, Form, Function

800 fill packs a lot of punch in warm, lightweight down performance jacket with useful features like multiple pockets and hem cinch cord. Less bulky looking than other down jackets. Small fit worked well for 5'2" petite woman, though sleeves a bit long. Lake color beautiful. Purchased as gift and now considering one for myself!

I like the softness and length.

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I bought this for camping so I wanted the reinforced shoulders, compactibility and hopefully durability.

Warm and Light

I took this jacket backpacking in WV where the low at night was 10 degrees. Along with a few other Outdoor Research layers, it kept me warm at camp and while I was sleeping. I kept it on while hiking the next morning and when it warmed up I took it off. I was surprised at how cool I felt after taking it off. Also love how it packs into its own pocket. I highly recommend!

Perfect light but warm

Got this and took it on a 40 mile section hike and it was great. It is lightweight. When I got hot it stuffed well in the front of my pack.

Super warm jacket and true to size

I've been impressed with the warmth so far and I'm excited to really put it to the test this winter. I'm 5' 9", 135 lbs and got a small. The jacket fits great.

Generously sized, super warm and comfy

I love this jacket. The liner of the pockets is soft and warm, the fit is great, it blocks wind and is water resistant. The fabric also seems to be sturdier than the typical down jacket.

Love it; temperature management

Great insulation without 'cooking', breathes well and the fabric feels durable (but I haven't made an effort to gest that. And I love the color (fir, which I believe is no longer in stock).
