The Helion is a lightweight insulated jacket that provides breathable warmth and moderate weather resistance. Designed to be worn in a stand-alone manner, or as a mid-layer with a wet weather protective shell. The face fabric is durable and wind-resistant, while a hard fleece panel at the underarms aids in breathability and helps prevent the user from overheating during strenuous activity.


  • 2 Ounces of Climashield APEX insulation performs better than down in wet and humid conditions, dries quickly, packs small, and is easy to clean
  • Raglan style sleeves for increased comfort and range of motion
  • A drop tail keeps the low back covered during strenuous movements
  • Durable Lightweight nylon fabric has a DWR finish
  • Large, insulated, zippered hand pockets allow access when wearing a plate carrier and/or duty belt
  • Polartec hard-faced fleece sides allow for better ventilation when worn under Personal Protective Equipment, and stretch to enable the easier clearing of the cover garment when the jacket is zipped
  • Athletic fit for layering under shells and PPE
  • Locking YKK zipper prevents self-opening during movement
  • Polartec Power stretch cuffs
  • Optional Velcro Loop on sleeves

CLIMASHIELD™ APEX weights may vary +/- 10% due to production variances

    I have a ton of jackets. This is by far the best one I have. For its weight it’s the warmest jacket I have. Construction is amazing! Well worth the price and wait. Thanks DM for making such an amazing jacket!!!

    Helion Jacket

    Published by DOAK KYLE CARSWELL on Mar 31st 2021

    Well made jacket. Fit is slightly snug, which I like. Deep pockets for whatever. Jacket kept me very warm at 25 degrees while only wearing a light fleece shirt underneath. Very pleased with my purchase and highly recommend.

    Not bad

    Published by Unknown on Mar 8th 2021

    Pretty warm, sleeves were a bit tight, craftsmanship was decent. I bought this jacket hoping it was similar to the Arc'teryx Leaf Atom LT at the same price point but unfortunately it was no where near the same quality. Velcro option was nice, wish Leaf offered it.

    Super comfy

    Published by Donovan on Feb 8th 2021

    A remarkably comfy jacket, super lightweight, and it makes me want to both go outside and conquer the world, and also snuggle in and take a nap. I'll be living in this during the cold months. Fits great under plate carrier.

    The Helion fit is excellent. Lightweight but packed with warmth. Shipped very nicely and well worth the wait for such fine quality. And not mention MADE IN THE USA. Highly recommend this product.

    Worth its weight in gold

    Published by 2ASuperfan on Jan 29th 2021

    It’s was going out for a NV 101 class in the NE part of the states. Normal winter night low 30s. I put it on over a T-shirt. By the tim I got there it dropped in the teens and had white out conditions. My head was freezing (didn’t have a helmet line) and my legs were cold. But my arms and chest were perfect! The fit on this coat is perfect. Couldn’t give it better marks. I usually don’t do reviews, but this coat needs the attention it deserves!

    Light. Flexible. Warm.

    Published by Lucas Brown on Jan 21st 2021

    This jacket gives the competition a run for the money. In the world of ultralight weight jackets, this one provides a crazy amount of thermal performance. I just finished a 2hr project outside in gusting winds with negative windchills and this jacket provided a perfect thermal layer under my winter shell jacket. Very stoked to support a local business that is also pushing out a quality product. Totally worth the money.

    Great Jacket

    Published by Jason on Dec 29th 2020

    It just arrived yesterday and I haven't used it outside yet, but it seems like a great jacket. I wasn't sure what size to order, I usually wear a medium tall and decided to order a medium. The fit is perfect for layering something over it, but not sized to wear many layers under the jacket. If I wanted to layer very much under the jacket I'll need to get the large. Knowing what I know now, I'd probably get the large. Overall though, very happy with the jacket, and the articulation of the radial sleeve is fantastic, I can do arm circles and the jacket doesn't move around, bind, or ride up.

    Awesome jacket

    Published by Louie G on Dec 29th 2020

    It only took two weeks from the time I ordered it. Really comfortable to wear. It’s very light but yet does the job. I like the pocket placement as it is easy to reach with a plate carrier on. Great product, I highly recommend!
