Don't let an iffy forecast interfere with your plans. The light Outdoor Research Helium rain pants pack down so small into their own back pocket that it's silly not to have a pair in your pack.

Sometimes, deciding to continue with plans on a cloudy day works out fine. Other times, you spend a day (or several) trying to stay optimistic in the face of leaky tents, socked-in summits, and soggy clothes. Though there's no way of knowing exactly which way things will go, you can be prepared for the worst case scenario. Pack the Outdoor Research Women's Helium Pant along with you when the skies are unpredictable, and pull it on quickly over your hiking shorts if things take a turn for the wet and rainy. This waterproof pant will make sure you stay dry through quick passing showers and longer storm systems alike, and it easily stows inside of its own pocket, so you can stash it back in your pack if the skies decide to clear.
Weighing an air-like 5.5 oz., Outdoor Researchs Womens Helium Pants deliver flash-storm protection sized for even the most weight-critical expeditions. Waterproof, breathable Pertex Shield+ 2.5L nylon-ripstop fabric with fully seam-taped, laminated construction boasts windproof coverage and rugged abrasion resistance among its many benefits. An elastic waist with drawcord delivers a custom fit. Gusseted crotch ensures uninhibited movement. Technical highlights include reflective logos, carabiner loop and internal loops for instep lace.

When the forecast is iffy, don't let it interfere with your plans. These rain pants are so light and small-they pack into their own back pocket-that it's silly not to have a pair in your pack. It's just like the uber-compressible Helium II Jacket, but for your legs. . . . . . . . Fabric Performance: Waterproof, Breathable, Fully Seam-Taped, Laminated Construction, Windproof, Lightweight. .
