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.
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.
