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.
An essential piece for every outdoorsman, the new Helio Hoody is a necessity on every hunt. Our all-new ¾ zip hoody is a lightweight mid-layer featuring mico-grid construction that optimizes its ability to insulate and breathe. Constructed from a soft and quiet 94/6 poly/spandex blend, this ultra-comfortable top is complete with a full-zip hood, thumb loops and is treated with an odor control Polygiene® treatment. Whether chasing pronghorn on hot August days or layering on late season elk hunts in deep snow, the Helio Hoody should be on your gear list.
Polygiene prevents the growth of odor-causing bacteria at the source. To do this Polygiene uses low concentrations of silver salt (silver chloride), which has antimicrobial properties.
The treatment is applied at the finishing stages of textile production and field and lab tests show a high level of odor control beyond the usual lifespan of a garment.
Polygiene silver salt technology is only active on the textiles itself. Polygiene is not nanosilver.
I was really excited to receive this hoody and add it to my layering tactics. I have been very happy with the Stone Glacier purchases I have made so far, and this hoody is no different. The construction, fit and attention to detail in design is excellent. I really like the hood design. It will also fit great under my climbing helmet too. I look forward to putting it to use this fall for some Alaska hunting trips.
For hunting OR and WA this midlayer is perfect. Great sun protection when hot while still breathing but when the wind picks up and temps drop still manages to keep me warm. Had it on this past weekend bear hunting in 80 degrees kept it on just to keep the sun off me and i Wasn’t overheating at all. A full zip version would be nice in the future or little armpit/side vents.
Spent 6 days in the Alaskan bush with my son hunting bear. Crazy warm and love the long length. We had rain and snow for 4 days. Kept me warm and never rode up under the Evo 40/56 pack I carry. Super soft and comfortable.
I really like the Helio Hoody so far and looking forward to using it while spring bear hunting in Ak. Only down side is that it arrived with a small fabric defect. Figured for the money I paid they would have let me get the first tear in it.
I have never liked hoodies - until now. The fit of the item is great. Love the 3/4 zipper. Have used this in varied weather conditions. Breaths well when warmer and great insulation as mid layer. At age 70 love this for hiking and when going to the range - and even for casual wear.
This is the best waffle top I have worn to date. The for is perfect the thumb holes are placed in a way that covers your had for warmth and the pocket is perfect for wearing a pack. I also love the extra length in the zipper to help with heat control while working.
I have been a hardcore Kuiu fan for years. This is the first piece I have tried from Stone Glacier and I am a fan. The hoody surpassed my expectations. I will be ordering more apparel from this company.
This layer has been exactly what I was looking for in a pull-over. Used it over a t-shirt in sub zero temps with no issue. The fit and feel were true to size and did not bunch when under other layers. Great product from a n amazing company.
My husband said this is the first item of clothing in years that actually fits him well. He loves it. Excellent fit and quality. Lightweight feel, but sufficiently warm. The size guide for this item is also very accurate.
I’m a carpenter by trade use this Helio Hoody everyday. I’m 63 and it holds up to my abuse from work. and it keeps me warm @ 5am before the sun comes up. Cant tell you how much I’m so impressed with how well it’s been thought out long tail so when sit you don’t freeze your backside off and deep zipper to air out and the pockets in a convenient location I just bought another one with the micro grid . You can’t go wrong with Stone Glacier Equipment !
I don’t think you can get much better. The new helio hoody is warm, comfortable and functional. Have used it on a few hikes this winter and my favorite design is the length of the back! Prevents your layers from riding up with a pack on and keeps you warm while sitting. Thanks for the awesome products!
Picked up the Helio Hoody and used it on a strenuous mountain lion hunt. Temps were in the mid 20s early and warmed to 30s. Snowing and windy. Postholed through knee deep snow so built up a sweat. The Helio did a great job of transferring moisture and kept me super warm under a puffer when we stopped. The chest pocket is in a great spot when you're wearing a pack and I was able to get to my phone/Onx quickly. Also really like the hood and the high zippered front. It came to just below my nose and saved me on those times when the "W" was whipping. No problem with the hood getting in way of my sight while I had everything zipped up. The opening stays in place and allows you to see 180 degrees to each side. I'll have this on every hunt and cold weather training trip I do. Bet its also the perfect outer layer for evenings while camping on Green River float trips.
Wore this for the first time to try before hunting season. Played a round of golf in cold windy conditions with just the hoody and a vest. Stayed warm the whole round. Love the hood. Will be buying another to add to the hunting apparel. Thank you for a great product! Sizing is perfect!
