Hi, what is the waterproof rating of this jacket? Is there any difference between the men's version compared to the women's version?
The Outdoor research Helium II jacket is made from Pertex® Shield 2.5L, 100% nylon, 30D ripstop. Pertex has a water column of 20.000mm which makes for a great waterproof rabric.
The difference between Pertex and Gortex is outlined in a great blog, here is the link https://norwaygeographical.com/pertex-vs-gore-tex-technology/#:~:text=Comparison%3A%20Pertex%C2%AE%20Shield%20vs%20Gore%2DTex%C2%AE,-Waterproof%20Rating%20and&text=For%20fully%20waterproof%20fabrics%2C%20a,this%20fabric%20as%20fully%20waterproof.
The only difference between the men's and women's version is the fit. Men's fit will have broader shoulders, longer torso while the women's has more room for hips, narrower shoulders and a little more fitted around the waist.
Hope this helps. Feel free to give us a call if you have any other questions
