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.

Patrol Features: Selecting "Yes" to this option will add PTT loops and a badge attachment point to the front of the jacket.

  • 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

    Helion Jacket

    Published by Bran on Sep 18th 2023

    This jacket is so amazingly comfortable that I bought a second. I even wear it throughout the midwestern winter for errands around town. The second jacket is slightly tighter than the first. My only complaint is that the left collar point of each jacket is stitched in such a way that the last inch or two fold away from the wearer and is constantly in my field of vision. It can only be held flat by a bag strap or seatbelt. The right side lays absolutely flat.

    So good I bought it twice.

    Published by Mitchell J on Apr 5th 2023

    I decided to gamble on one based off a few reviews online; they're not the cheapest after shipping to Australia. But, I liked it so much I bought a second one! It's great when it's mild, it's excellent when it's cold (especially if you're active), the long tail and elastic sleeves are fantastic, the pockets are deep, the zippers are quality, it weights next to nothing (the box feels like they forgot to pack it), and it scrunches up and takes up next to no room in a bag. I'm 5'11", 75-78kg, broad shoulders but slimmer waist. The medium is a great fit, but snug fitting (enough for a mid-layer underneath, but not a carrier or anything). My second one is a little more snug than my first, but not significantly - a large would be too big. If you're really not sure, play it safe and go the bigger size.

    Quality item

    Published by Warren on Mar 24th 2023

    You can tell this jacket is quality and has had a lot of thought out into it. The only I issue I currently have is the fit. I’m 5’11”, 185 with athletic build. The fit is a bit tight across the chest and shoulders, armpit is a bit tight as well. These may work themselves out as I wear it. I think sizing up would have given me too much sleeve length and tail length. Coming from an atom LT, this is a bit more heavy and restrictive of motion as outlined above. However, this jacket is much warmer and still breathes with the side panels. I fully expect this jacket to take the LTs place in my rotation once worn in a bit more.

    Helion Jacket

    Published by Scott on Mar 10th 2023

    Great quality jacket. I’m 5’9” 180, 39” chest. I normally wear a small or medium in jackets depending on the brand. I went with small on this jacket as I plan to wear it under a plate carrier for SWAT activities. It is a pretty perfect fit. Some room in the torso with tighter arms. If was going to wear this as a regular day to day jacket or over a bunch of layers I would go with a medium next time. However the stretch panels on the side keep the fit nice and snug and it will be perfect for my needs.

    Helion vs Atom LT

    Published by Lon Suder on Mar 5th 2023

    Had the Helion for over a year then decided to trade for the Atom LT. I regretted that decision immediately. The Helion actually kept me warm wearing it standalone during the winter here in AK. Paired with a good base layer and outer shell (in my case, the Otte Patrol Parka), this thing really shines during the cold winter months. The jacket had more wind-proofing then I thought it would, and the insulation is consistent throughout. I cant say the same about the Atom LT. As soon as i walked outside with the Atom LT, i could feel breeze going straight though it. My arms immediately feel cold with the LT (which was not the case at all with the Helion). The only complaints i have about the Helion is the lack of bottom draw string on the full zip version, and I also wish there was more room when you full zip (near the neck/chin area). Other than that, i feel the Helion is perfect.

    This jacket is perfect. Maybe it’s just me but it’s almost like the jacket was tailored to fit my exact body shape. The jacket is super lightweight and amazing at regulating your body temps. Couldn’t be happier with my purchase. The only problem I encounter was that I ordered no Velcro on the sleeves and received them anyhow but it’s not a dealbreaker. I will definitely be a returning customer for defense mechs.
