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 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.
An ultralight ski touring jacket, the Black Diamond Helio Active is the ultimate shell for fast and light mountain missions. Featuring GORE-TEX Active technology, this 3-layer jacket is extremely breathable, yet durably waterproof and windproof, making it the ideal solution for high-intensity days in the backcountry.
