Helium Jacket by Outdoor Research The All Weather Hoodie

[08/09/10] 

Sure it’s a bit sunny now and the sky is bluish. Enjoy it while it lasts. We are still in typhoon season, when we define the day by the number after the “T”; when we run for cover under a hail of raindrops the size of beer bloated hamsters, when we are desperately awaiting a T8 to hit our shores and when Mother Nature turns on us like an unappreciated, menopausal waitress.

As the scouts say, always be prepared, in this case with a Helium jacket from Outdoor Research. No it won’t make you fly like a helium balloon (sadly), but like its namesake gas, this jacket is so light, you won’t even realise you’re carrying it, until you’re fighting for your life at the rain soaked taxi rank.

Its breathable, Pertex Shield ripstop fabric is fully water proof and features elastic cuffs and water-resistant zippers, and is easily secured in its own pouch.

The jacket is also perfect for when the wind whips and you won’t become mini bus fodder thanks to the day-glow colours.

Oh, and like many STDs, it comes with an infinite guarantee.
