Once it stops raining my body heat dries it out really fast. Itís one of my favourite pieces of gear. I carry one in my hiking bag and one in my bike bag
I was just referencing the weight of the Squamish, which is on the high side of wind jackets. Helium is a rain jacket. I agree that the Houdini is a great jacket.
