Fresh Look: Helium Jacket

leave a comment »

Back in the spring I was looking for a cool rain jacket, in yellow, that didn’t look cheesy. Well, a few months late but I also spotted the Helium Jacket over at

At only 6.8 ounces, the jacket is the ideal weight for toting around in preparation for summertime storms or tossing in a backpack while hiking.

The fully waterproof Helium jacket, with 2.5 layers of the Seattle, WA-based company’s 20D Pertex Shield DS ripstop fabric protects from downpours well. The fit is trim and suitable for warm weather layering and the finish includes heat-taped seams and hidden cinch cords keeping the lines clean. Conveniently, the entire jacket compresses in to a side pocket for simple storage.

The Helium jacket sells online for $140 in three colorways—yellow, fossil and black.
