Outdoor Research says:
Durable and lightweight Diamond Fuse down enhanced for weather protection with our exclusive waterproof Pertex Shield Diamond Fuse fabric on hood and shoulders.
The Helium Hooded Down Jacket is warm and durable, combining 800 fill power down with Diamond Fuse fabric for increased durability.
Added weather protection from the addition of waterproof Pertex Shield Diamond Fuse fabric on the hood and shoulders increase its versatility. This is a down jacket that suits inclement weather and can cope with rougher use than a typical down hoodie.
It’s a fully featured down jacket with an adjustable hood and multiple pockets. There’s an external chest pocket, hand pockets with a soft brushed lining on the knuckle side (the left one doubles as a stuff sack with carabiner loop and key clip) and two internal stash pockets to keep a water bottle or climbing shoes warm in cold conditions.
The main zipper has a strip of webbing behind to minimise the chance of the fabric snagging which can be a problem with some jackets. Not this one.
The Helium Down Hooded jacket is the best option if you want a rugged lightweight down jacket that offers more weather protection.
