The Helion Type B 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 under a wet weather protective shell. Compared to the classic Helion Jacket, the Type-B removes the polortec side stretch panels in favor of being fully insulated. This allows for more warmth, higher wind resistace, and has a more relaxed fit. The face fabric is durable and wind-resistant and the liner is very soft, and highly breathable.

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

    Love This

    Published by Ethan on Nov 6th 2023

    Bought this for a trip to Montana and next year for a trip to Europe. Didnt really know what to expect. Only ever spent this kind of money on stuff like NorthFace and Outdoor Research. And i gotta say this thing is amazing. Incredibly light weight, packs down to nothing, and very warm. The stretchy cuffs are nice too! Will definitely be buying more in the future!

    Perfect insulator

    Published by JUSTIN on Apr 14th 2023

    Initial impressions - definitely both lighter and warmer than I was expecting. I have an Arcteryx Cold WX and this is comparable in warmth to that despite being much lighter and more packable. Finish on everything is top notch. Definitely use the DM size chart - I'm 6ft2 235lbs 45" chest and an XL in almost everything (Arcteryx, TAD, Beyond etc) and I went with a Large in this. Fits perfect as a mid-layer with just a base-layer underneath.

    Men's Helion Jacket Type B

    Published by Travis on Mar 30th 2022

    First impressions: This jacket is super light, decently warm, has a really nice fit, very simple and clean and very comfortable. I ordered the Type-B due to it's boxier shape to allow room for body armor and I got the patrol features because I will be using it for work as a Deputy Sheriff. Goes under a Chest rig or PC very well. Tightens up nicely around waist to allow no interference with duty belt. Time will tell if the color will fade and how durable it is. Other then that it's an awesome jacket and I have gotten lots of compliments in the short time I have had it. Thanks guys for the awesome customer service and products.

    Great Jacket

    Published by Chris on Feb 16th 2022

    Extremely comfortable. Great articulation in the arms and didn’t feel restricted at all. Bought in a larger size for layering and is perfect. Surprisingly very light weight when compared to my snugpak jacket and just as warm. Very pleased with it. Wish it was produced in dark navy for duty use with my work.
