  • The Full Story

    Whether you’re braving the cold on an early morning run, or walking towards colder temperatures at the top of the hill, our lightweight Women’s Helios Vest offers high-performance protection from winter weather. Insuloft, a 100% recycled polyester insulation, is body-mapped in key areas to provide the warmth you need in the areas you need it for your most active outdoor challenges.

    Across the chest and rear panels membrane is bonded to the insulation, drawing moisture away from you to keep you comfortable as you move along the trails. Even with all these practical features, the Helios Vest is lightweight and packable, folding down into its own Packpocket and taking up hardly any space in your wardrobe when you’re home in between adventures, or in your backpack when you’re out on the peaks.

    Ready for you to throw on as soon as the temperature drops, this versatile vest is an ideal mid-layer that will keep your core warm under a waterproof shell in the pouring rain, or as an outer layer if you’re out in an unexpected shower. The Durable Water Repellency finish on the tough outer fabric acts as a shield against light rainfall, causing water droplets to bead up and roll off the fabric. So, whatever the weather and wherever you’re heading, you can enjoy your journey as you stay protected from the elements.

    Elasticated armholes ensure total freedom of movement no matter your activity, while an adjustable hem means you can customise the fit of your Helios Vest to suit you. Three zipped security pockets, one of which doubles as a Packpocket, enable you to keep your walking essentials safe and closeby, and a brushed tricot lining has been added to the two zipped hand pockets and to the back of the neck for extra warmth and comfort. It’s this combination of practical features and cold-weather protection that makes our Helios Vest an ideal addition to your activewear wardrobe

Lightweight - Weight 265 Grams

We were the original lightweight revolutionaries. Back in the 1970’s we realised that cutting weight without losing performance meant that you can take less and do more. Everything we make is engineered to achieve this.

Packable - Pack Size 850ml

Low pack size is a benefit whether you’re packing for a day’s walking or for the trip of a lifetime. We continually scrutinise fabric specification and garment construction to minimise the packed size of our clothing. The actual pack size is tested and listed.

Fast Drying - Drying Time 9 hours

All Rohan clothing is designed to be very fast drying – as much a benefit for unexpected downpours as anything else. It’s easy to wash and often needs no ironing. Almost all garments will dry overnight, meaning you can take less with you. We test every item and list its drying time.

  • Durable Water Repellency

    Our DWR finish is an advanced treatment which dramatically increases the water repellency of our fabrics. On its own, it offers a useful level of shower resistance; used in conjunction with our Barricade technology, it reduces the tendency of the face fabric to wet out and maximizes breathability.

  • Packpocket

    Clever design is more often than not about what to take off rather than what to put on. It’s about giving one feature multiple functions. That’s why many of our garments feature a Packpocket. This handy addition converts pockets into space-saving storage by compressing the garment into itself. You could use it as a travel pillow when it’s all packed down too.

  • Insuloft

    Insuloft is an advanced synthetic wadding that offers a better warmth-to-weight ratio than polyester fleece and better performance when wet than conventional down. It’s durable, compressible, lightweight, easy to wash and fast drying – it’s the perfect choice for cold-weather protection.

  • Secure Pockets

    Losing possessions when you’re close to home is frustrating, but losing your car keys, passport, phone or wallet while you’re travelling can really spoil your adventure. That’s why we put lots of thought into developing safer pockets – deeper, zipped and hidden.
