Women’s Rain Jacket – The Helium II by Outdoor Research


If you’re looking for a great women’s rain jacket, you may want to check out the Helium Rain Jacket by Outdoor Research. This waterproof jacket is made with Diamond Fuse technology, making it five times stronger and lighter than traditional rain jackets. In addition, it features two front pockets, a single chest pocket, and water resistance.

Single chest pocket

The Helium Ii is lightweight, compact, and packs into its chest pocket. The jacket’s water-resistant zipper keeps your belongings safe. The jacket also features an internal stuff sack. The jacket is also compact enough to be carried in a backpack or by hand. A fabric loop is also provided for attaching a climbing harness.

The jacket also has a single zip pocket at the chest, which is large enough to accommodate a mobile phone. The zipper is YKK AquaGuard, which helps to repel the rain. The jacket also has an adjustable hood and drawcord hem. It also has a Standard fit, a straighter cut than an athletic one.

The Helium II jacket is also available in a women’s version. It has all the same features as the men’s version, but the women’s version is lighter and comes in different colourways. This version lacks Diamond Fuse technology but features the same standard Pertex Shield construction as the men’s version.

Pertex Shield+ fabric

The Outdoor Research Women’s Helium II Jacket is made from a lightweight rain shell made from Pertex Shield+ fabric. The jacket is a fully seam-taped, ultralight rain shell. The lightweight construction, elastic cuffs, and drawcord hem keep the wearer dry and comfortable. In addition, Pertex Shield+ fabric provides superior waterproofing and breathability.

The Helium II jacket is packed small and can be easily carried anywhere. The Pertex Shield+ fabric feels soft against the skin and is more breathable than most 2.5-layer jackets. In addition, the jacket can be easily mounted on a pack thanks to a reinforced loop.

Pertex Shield+ fabric is one of the most breathable fabrics available. Its 20,000-mm water-column waterproof rating is an industry-standard for waterproofness. To achieve this rating, the material must withstand a water column of at least ten times its weight in grams. Pertex Shield is rated to withstand pressure from 20,000 mm.

Diamond Fuse technology

The Pertex Diamond Fuse technology used in the Outdoor Research Women’s Helium Ii Rain Jacket is vital to the Outdoor Research Helium Rain Jacket’s performance. This technology uses filaments that lock together to create a fabric that resists abrasion and washing. This technology has been featured in Outdoor Research’s latest line of jackets. Pertex Diamond Fuse technology is also vital to this line of jackets and pants. It makes the fabric highly abrasion resistant and stable over extended wear. The material is also machine washable and tumbles dryable.

The Outdoor Research Women’s Helium Ii Rain Jacket features a lightweight, comfortable fit and Pertex diamond-fuse technology to increase durability and abrasion resistance. This technology uses diamond-shaped filaments to form a more robust and lighter weave than other materials. The result is a durable fabric with no weight penalty.
