OR Helium II XL Black on Amazon on 09/06/2012 09:39:24 MDT Print View

Update 2: Another BPL member mentioned that if you call Amazon they will honor the 20% off coupon on the jacket, as it's supposed to be listed in part of the offers. So still at $60.

Update: looks like they no longer have the 20% off deal on outdoor gear. So the final price is $75.

Only five remaining and limited to size XL in black, but a pretty good deal on the OR Helium II jacket for $60 (shipped and no taxes for me).

Add to your cart ($75), and it should knock of $15 as they are running a 20% off outdoor gear. Make sure it's the one sold and shipped by Amazon.

got my helium and already sold it.

the hood was in fact horrible and cannot be trusted to keep water or wind out (as per the bpl sotm report).

i'll stick with my tnf triumph anorak until a rab pulse or kenetic goes on sale.

i've tried the marmot mica, super mica, and essence...all great jackets but the essence wins as the lightest and most feature-less, but with a decent hood (at least you can synch down the sides and make a propper seal.)
