Scott Helium Paclite jacket

Our review

A stylish and thoroughly practical but costly wet weather jacket
Skip to view product specifications

Available in black or bright yellow, Scott’s Helium jacket is fully waterproof, with taped seams, and as breathable as we’ve come to expect from Gore-Tex’s Paclite fabric. Zipped waist pockets help to make it practical off the bike too and there’s a zip-on/off hood with pull-cord adjustment.


The fit is incredibly comfy, with slightly elasticated panels behind the shoulders improving snug fit mobility plus a dropped back and long sleeves for a thoroughly practical on-the-bike cut. Small pit zips under the arms help excess heat escape.


There’s a zipped MP3 player chest pocket, and reflective but subtle Scott logos and piping at the back add night safety. There’s no getting away from the fact that this is a lot of money for a one-skin jacket though, however good the performance of the material.
