Shop with confidence. If it’s not working out, you can return it (consumables, electronics, undergarments and swimwear excluded).
Really. If it's not up to snuff after you use it (a couple times) you can still bring it back. It lasts longer than 30 days, but not forever. We'll be fair about it.


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 yet lightweight fabric all pack down small, stuffing into it's own pocket to pack away on 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 underneath
  • Elastic wrist bindings and drawcord hem seal out drafts
  • Left hand pocket doubles as a stuff sack
