Date Reviewed: April 3, 2009

Strengths:    Extremely light weight, windproof, well-fitting, cuffs seal wind.

Weaknesses:    durability?

Bottom Line:   
This is a fantastic windproof layer. It's so light, and actually more packable than advertised, that I can stuff it in my camelbak or seat bag and just forget it. My one concern is how it will hold up in a wreck. It's not a full-on rain jacket, and isn't advertised as such.

Date Reviewed: December 28, 2008

Strengths:    light weight, stores in small amount of space, very wind resistant

Weaknesses:    not waterproof after the coating wears off

Bottom Line:   
don't get Helium if you're looking for something to protect you from rain, even light rain over short distances. It's ideal if you want a compact garment to block the wind.

Thule Helium Aero 2?

Couldn't really find much on the Helium Aero hitch rack from Thule. Any current users? As much as I want a 1Up, getting fitted for two bikes is breaking the budget just a tad. I'm fine with a hang and swing type set up. The other choice is the Yakima Highlite 2...Read More »
