Amazing product

This is pretty much the swiss army knife of base layer jackets. It really is water resistant, extremely comfortable to wear, and doesn't restrict movement of any kind. I bought a medium and it was more form fitting, so if you like a little space I would recommend going up a size. I can't wait to eventually get the other two layers in the set. A word of advice to those whom don't know either, but what ever size you get in the helios, just go a size up on the other jackets for effective layering.

perfect base layer and jacket

Comfortable, resistant , something to use not only in the cold nights out in the wood but also as for going out in the city . Perfect choice.

Awesome Jacket

This is my second purchase from Virtus and this jacket did not disappoint. Comfortable and very well constructed, it fits well and was perfect for what I needed for hiking and other outdoor activities. What’s best of all is how it layers with the other outer shells as well. Worth every penny!

Helios is the best I've found

Having researched the company, and its founders, I expected the jacket to be adequate for its purpose. I was pleased to find that it exceeded my expectations. The first chance I had to wear it, it performed well. I made an 8-mile hike in 40F degree weather, 14-mile wind with gusts of 22 mph. Wearing only a Tshirt under the jacket I found myself needing to unzip it partially as it was keeping me so warm. Even then the hood stayed in place on my head. The mask is a nice addition though I didn't find myself needing it at the time. I was actually surprised to find the two large pockets inside the jacket. I must have missed that in the description. As the inner-most part of a three-layer system, I can only imagine that it would stand up to just about anything.
While I was disappointed to find that the ladies medium in black I wanted for my wife was out of stock, I can certainly understand why. Can't recommend this jacket more highly.

Description

 Named for the father of the four wind deities, the LEAF Astraes is a powerfully versatile hardshell.

Soft, durable

 Virtek™ Fleece on the neck and core keeps you warm and snuggly. Our patented 4-way stretch fabric moves with you like a second skin while protecting you from water and wind. 

This lightweight polyester grid fleece is bonded to an abrasion resistant nylon woven face fabric. The result: a single material that insulates, wicks moisture and still breathes while delivering weather protection and stretch performance.  

Astraes is an all-purpose, comfortable jacket you can wear as a mid layer in moderately cold temperatures or solo in cool weather.

Highlights

PERFORMANCE FEATURES:
  • Subdued Logo  
  • Water Repellant
  • Breathable
  • Wind Resistant
  • Insulated
  • Durable
  • 4-Way Stretch Fabric

FEATURES:

  • High collar, no chaffing. Astraes's high collar reaches just underneath your jawline for extra face protection from the elements. The inside of the collar is lined with soft, microfiber fleece that's soft on your skin and doesn't chafe. 
  • Fleece and mesh dual lining. Brushed fleece inner lining keeps your upper core warm. A durable mesh inner lining over your lower core regulates your body temperature.
  • Pit vents. 2 Pit vent zippers are easy to access when you need to dump heat and prevent sweating.
  • Adjustable cuffs. Triple stitch Velcro™ cuffs adjust to fit your wrist just the way you like it.
  • Adjustable waist. Our patented cinch technology—1-pull to tighten, 1-touch release—at the bottom of your Astraes adjusts for a perfect fit. 
  • Patch fields. 2 Patch fields on each upper arm let you show off your team patches.
  • Body pockets. 2 Upper arm pockets hold your keys and ID. 2 Inner chest pockets with hidden zippers safely store your valuables. They're also easy to access when wearing your Astraes under the Proteus outer layer. 2 Side pockets are ideal for storing stuff when you're wearing a vest, pack or harness. 
  • Glute-covering cut. Lower cut of fabric in the back covers your glutes. No riding up when you sit, squat, or wear a harness! 
  • Built-in storage for your Proteus outer shell. Tunnel pocket over the lower back stows your Proteus outer shell when packed in pillow form. It's fleece-lined and opens by zipper from both ends, so it doesn't matter if you're right- or left-handed.
