Outdoor Research Helium Wind Hoodie

Published By

The comfort of a hoodie. The protection of a windbreaker. The packability of a shell jacket. By their powers combined, they are Outdoor Research’s Helium Wind Hoodie.

Named the “best windshell” by Backpacker Magazine, OR’s Helium Wind Hoodie is one heck of a versatile piece of outdoor gear. Using a proprietary material technology that the brand is calling Diamond Fuse, this pack hoodie sheds rain and blocks wind like a champ, all while retaining exceptionally lightweight performance.

An adjustable hood and drawcord hem complete the package, allowing you to dial in your fit to match the weather. And when the weather turns bright and warm and the breeze fades, you can stow the Helium Wind Hoodie directly inside of its integrated chest pocket pouch. There’s really no reason not to take this with you on every hike.

Price: $129
