I have the helios jacket with the epic fabric, ff says 15oz (I need to buy a scale). I have had this jacket for almost 2yrs. This jacket fits me great, sizes run a little snug so try on if possible or take the recommendation of their excellent staff. It is plenty warm (only experienced temps down to about 20 so far). I went with the epic fabric for the durability, it was a good trade off for me, I would rather carry a tiny amount more weight and have the product last. The epic fabric seems to be very water resistant, only had out in light drizzle, fabric did not saturate, water beaded right off. This is my first down jacket, I have owned a patagonia puff ball jacket and a mountain hardware synthetic jacket...never again, I am sold on this jacket. It compresses super small and puffs up to luxury. AND ff is a great company to deal with.
