Outdoor Research's best selling packable, breathable and weather resistant, Helium Rain Jacket, has just received a much-anticipated upgrade, now featuring two hand pockets. Offering the same durable, packable rain protection with storage options.

In plus sizes 1X to 4X, equivalent to UK sizes 18 to 32!

Iconic Rain Protection, Tested and Trusted Since 2010.

Tested, trusted, and top-selling since 2010, the iconic Helium Rain Jacket from Outdoor Research packs down to the size of your palm and utilizes the left-hand pocket as a stuff sack, so you'll always have room for it in your backpack or work bag.

Made from BlueSign® approved Pertex® Shield Diamond Fuse Nylon, a fabric that offers excellent durability and abrasion resistance, you can venture off-trail or squeeze onto a crowded train with confidence. Mother Nature can do her worst while you stay comfortable and dry with Aquaguard zippers, elastic cuffs, drawcord hems, an adjustable hood, and zippered hand pockets.

The Helium Rain Jacket packs down small, taking up less space in your bag and leaving more room for adventure.

Adjustable Drawcord Hem
Cinch the easily-adjustable drawcord at your hem to hold in excess fabric for a snugger fit.

Adjustable Hood
Front and back adjustments for a perfect fit.

Why we love the plus size Helium Rain Jacket

Finding waterproof coats that fit women's plus size bodies has always been a huge struggle. Outdoor Research worked with Unlikely Hikers in the US to re-create the patterns for their best selling products, using measurements from real plus size people. This means the arms aren't ridiculously long, the trouser rise works for bigger bums, and overall, the coats are shaped to fit the different proportions of plus size bodies. Hurrah! A waterproof coat that fits at last.

We particularly love the Helium for its lightweight approach - which means it's highly packable and particularly ideal as a summer shower shield, or for long distance adventures where reducing your backpack weight is important.
