Outdoor Research Helium Down Hoodie - Men's


See available tops


The weather in the mountains is unpredictable at best, the Helium Down Hoodie pairs down insulation with weatherproofing in key areas to keep you ready for whatever rolls in. Great as a midlayer or by itself, thanks to the responsibly-sourced down and waterproof hood and shoulders. The high fill-power down and durable fabric all pack down small, stuffing into its own pocket during bluebird days.

  • Pertex® Shield 2.5-layer waterproof fabric on hood, shoulders and upper sleeves
  • Pertex® Quantum nylon ripstop body with a DWR finish
  • Diamond Fuse technology improves durability and abrasion-resistance of fabric without adding weight
  • 800+ fill-power goose down comes from ethically produced sources
  • Insulated hood accommodates a helmet
  • Elastic wrist bindings and drawcord hem seal out drafts
  • Left pocket doubles as a stuff sack
