Description

The Black Diamond Helio Active Shell is built to handle big vert and fast descents during epic days in the backcountry. The jacket’s 3-layer Gore-Tex® Active technology provides ultimate breathability for high-intensity ski touring, while maintaining its durable waterproof/windproof protection. The Helio Active’s Gore-Tex® C-Knit backer adds to the shell’s overall comfort, replacing the usual crispness of a traditional hardshell with a quieter overall construction. Featuring two harness compatible hand pockets and a single-adjust Coheasive hood that’s compatible with a climbing helmet, the Helio Active is ready for alpine and ski mountaineering objectives, while full-length pit zip vents allow for quick temperature regulation for high output activity. An internal drop pocket stores essentials and the single-adjust Coheasive hem features an internal cord management system, allowing you to keep out unwanted moisture.

Helio Active Shell - Men's is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Its OK.... The jacket is pretty thin and lightweight, and reminds me more of a rain jacket than a snow/ski shell. It does have good windproof and waterproof capabilities, testing it out on top of the devide at 13k ft. In white out conditions. Very basic shell nothing extra as far as pockets and or added touches, hope it lasts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Less is More - Perfecto! Everything I want and need with amazing versatility! Super light and I can use it as a raincoat, or as full on protection in sub zero temps with a base layer and puffy jacket underneath. My new favorite piece of apparel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light, next to skin comfort. Great fit with room for insulation, size XL seems true to size for myself @ 6’2” & 210lbs of middle Aged man. Internal zippered chest pocket and micro fleece chin guard would have made this a 5 in my book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stood up to the Test Over the 2018/19 holidays @ Alta/Bird, I skied this jacket in blowing super cold temps, white-out conditions, powder days and sunny blue birds. It did an excellent job in all conditions. Roomy enough to layer on cold days, light enough on warm sunny days and tough enough to keep out the wind and snow on storm days.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shell of the future! I live in a cold snowy area of the country, I have used this jacket for skate skiing, fat biking, downhill skiing and it works awesome! Keeps the wind and cold out while keeping you dry on the inside, while skate skiing and fatbiking it did a great job keeping the wind off and not getting too hot with the garbage bag feel. The pockets are large and super useful. The hood is great fits great over a bike helmet. Surprised by how light the jackets is, however still seems to be very durable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice and light Only used it a few times for backcountry skiing, but I like it. Fit is good—similar to other BD items in terms of sizing. I like the pit zips and large pockets (can easily fit skins) and hood goes well over a helmet. Fabric is light, so wouldn’t use it for bushwhacking, but it does the job and packs away nicely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome hard shell for touring I've used this shell about 12 days of touring and I have some initial impressions. In general I really dig this piece. Light and simple are its 2 biggest strengths. Everything I need but nothing I don't. Gore Active breathes well. Pit zips are great for touring on storm days when you need the hard shell but want more breathability. Hood is helmet compatible. Did I mention it's light for a true hard shell (not a rain shell) and very packable. I'm 5'10" and 180 lbs. I'm usually between a M and L size for most jackets. Went with the L here for more layering room after trying on both. Fit is fine. A touch baggy but not too bad and I'm not restricted with extra layers underneath. Very, very happy with this purchase.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Med fits like a large! Not happy with your fitting system. I work in the outdoor business to know your sizes are way out of whack. First time going with BD and so far I'm not impressed. Knew I should've not bought it on line.
