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.

  • Durable Lightweight nylon fabric has a DWR finish
  • Large, insulated, zippered hand pockets allow access when wearing a plate carrier and/or duty belt

    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.

    Thank you for crafting a beautifully fitting jacket. It's very comfortable in the Northern Desert.

    Absolutely love this jacket. Perfect fit (I am 5'11" 180lbs. and chose medium) and extremely functional. I haven't fully ran it through it's paces, but I feel like I am at least a 10 percent better shooter/scout and 100 percent more comfortable and badass in this jacket. ;)

    The only problem with the Helion jacket is that I now need it in two more colors. Are you looking into making a wind and water layer to go over it? Fingers crossed!

    Helicon Jacket

    Super lightweight but highly effective at keeping you warm. The gray is a bit lighter in color than manufacturers but matches the rest of their product line. Great stuff that is highly packable.

    Helion jacket

    Published by Kyle on Feb 25th 2022

    5'8". 150lbs. 38 chest. Size 30 pants. Ranger green, size small, w/hood. Seems to be of good quality, did not have any stray threads or manufacturing blemishes out of the box. Zippers are smooth and easy. Hood is comfortable, with a bit of extra room to fit a helmet under I'm guessing. Fit is snug, but as a slim guy, I like that. Still had plenty of room for layering though. Decided to wear both the helion jacket and helion pants for a recent winter coyote hunt/camp weekend here in Wisconsin. Temps were around 15°F with a wind chill making it "feel like" 4°F and a few inches of snow on the ground. The jacket and pants did well to keep me warm. Definitely helped block the wind very well. Kept the pants on during the camping part of the weekend, folded the jacket into its own hood and used it as a pillow. Slept under a tarp shelter and in a winter sleep system (goretex bivy, sleeping pad, sleeping bag) *I did wear a few layers under the jacket and pants. Wool top and bottom base layer, jeans and flannel midlayer, then a fleece zip up w/out hood. So the whole system helped keep me warm, but I understand I was testing the jacket and pants well below it's intended temperature expectation so layering was needed. All in all, I still gave it 5 stars as it seems to be quality, fits perfect for me, and complimented my winter set up well. Would definitely recommend.

    Awesome jacket.

    Published by Philip Simon on Feb 23rd 2022

    I would consider this jacket comparable to the arcteryx and Kuiu jackets. Very comfortable and warm. I am 6’1, 215 lbs, athletic build and the Large fits perfect for me.
