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.

Thanks John - good to know about that route. I actually was looking at that on the way back around it and was confused as to why there wasn't a route. Seems like it would save ~15 minutes.
