The Helio Hoodie is designed for minimal bulk and enhanced comfort during backcountry hunts. Watch the video to see the advanced features of this hooded hunting jacket.
The Men's Stone Glacier Helio Hoodie is a lightweight mid-layer built for comfort and function. This three-quarter zip hoodie is made with a lightweight poly-spandex blend and features Polygiene® odor control technology that hides your scent from wildlife. A full-zip articulated hood blocks out wind and weather, while a strategically-placed chest pocket provides quick access even when you're wearing a pack. Whether it's as a mid-layer during late season hunts or an outer jacket in warmer weather, the Stone Glacier Helio Hoodie is an essential piece for every backcountry outdoorsman.
Surprisingly versatile for different temperature ranges and has a great athletic fit. I’m 5’10”, 180, athletic build and a L fits great over a base layer t-shirt and under the De Havilland jacket with room at add insulation if desired. I’ll be getting another couple of these.
The new sg helio is a perfect layering piece for when it’s cold, or when the temps rise wear it by itself. It’s light and stuffs into any pocket on my pack. I am a size medium usually but I had to send the the medium helio back to exchange it for a large. Other then that this is a great piece of equipment
Everything about doing business with Stone Glacier has been easy and fast I ordered 2 Helio Hoody’s. I like the thought and design that went into this hoody. And then navigating threw the website was a breeze. I think my hoods were shipped to me with in two days. I’m a carpenter and iv been using the hoody as part of my layering system since I got it. Mornings are pretty cold but this hoody keeps me warm and I can move around with out being held back . It’s a great piece that I’ll break in properly when Elk season rolls around again!!
I’m 5’11” 210 pounds currently and I bought the large. I’ve been hiking in the Helio a lot and have been wearing a lightweight hoody underneath and it fits well. A little tighter than garments I normally wear in large so I’d say it’s more of an athletic fit. The material is super nice and it moves moisture really well. Love the longer sleeves with the thumb holes, awesome location on the chest pocket that the straps from my back pack don’t get in the way of. Also has a really nice hood. Overall I would recommend this to other people. Can be used easily for hunting obviously but also looks great for every day wear.
I like it except 2 things. Where the thumb hole is on the sleeve they sewed a 4 inch price on the end of the sleeve rather than putting a hole and reinforcing. It's a touch un comfortable but not a big deal. And shipping is ridiculous expensive for ultra light hoody.
I would consider the Helio a mid weight base layer. After a lot of searching I decided to give this piece a shot. I really like the design of the shirt. The longer tail keeps you covered when seated or bent over and the overall cut allows the layer to mesh with the rest of my gear. Well thought out and awesome quality! Good job SG.
Great fit and cut, true size (size S: I'm 5'7, wide shoulders, slim). Like the deep zipper for getting it on and off. Used if for a couple of cold nights for sleeping in and loved the comfort and interior softness. Four instead of five stars because of not totally sold on the coyote yellow color (wish I'd have gone with the grey) and some pilling of exterior fabric after a couple of washes.
Just received this top and am very impressed. It appears well built and is comfortable and warm. The hood is cut perfect for warmth without losing mobility or vision. I initially ordered a large but it was tight in my chest and back so I exchanged for an XL. I’m 6’2” and 190 with an athletic build Exchange was painless and lightning fast. The XL fits perfect. I’ve been really impressed with everything I’ve purchased from stone glacier the helio top is no exception.
