It's a known fact that Mother Nature really doesn't care whether or not you have big plans to summit a long-time objective. And while you can beg and plead with her all you want, she won't listen. Thankfully, you packed along the Outdoor Research Men's Helium Hybrid Hooded Jacket. You may be wondering what exactly makes the Helium Hybrid any different than the Helium Jacket. Well, the answer lay in the pits--the armpits, that is. The designers at Outdoor Research combined the quick-drying and weather-resistant construction of the Helium with the stretchy design of the Ferrosi to create a jacket that's windproof, water-resistant, and fitted with passive ventilation for unimpeded mobility. And thanks to its lightweight design, the Helium Hybrid easily packs down into the left hand pocket, so you can chuck it in your bag when the sun comes out to play. After all, Mother Nature is mostly forgiving.
