Outdoor Research Helium II Jacket

The the lifelong quest for lighter and more compact gear I have just dropped the hammer on one of these after thinking about it for months.  This jacket is 180g (for a L) and squashes down into about the size of a coke can.  It's not quite as waterproof as a big heavy three layer jacket but most of the time I don't need anything that heavy duty.  The only major con is that it's not 3/4 length so you have to take rain pants as well.

I got this off Massdrop ($99usd + $6.50 shipping to NZ).  They are also on Amazon as well for a similar price.

If you haven't tried Massdrop then I highly recommend it.  It's a bulk buying web site where you sign up for the "drop" and when they know how many people are buying the item they get the lowest price they can.  You subscribe to the categories (e.g. ultralight outdoors gear) you are interested in and then send you e-mail full of cool stuff to buy

You do need to sign up to the web site to see the prices.  You don't need to use your google or facebook account (which is a bad idea anyway), just sign up with your e-mail.

This is my referral link which means you get $10 free credit on joining and if some unknown number of people join and buy stuff I get $10 as well.

Highly recommended.  I have brought more stuff than I probably should have from there.

This is my rifle, there are many like it but this one is mine.  Without my rifle I am useless, without me it is useless.
