Mavic Helium review
A curved - and offset at the neck - zip helps keep the fit snug when worn slightly undone and its rain resistance is up with the best in this test.
Not quite as breathable as the best
With its soft-lined collar, the Helium's comfort factor is high, but that belies its super-light construction.
The Dura Lite SL fabric is very, very fine, and as a result the jacket packs down small.
It allows a reasonable amount of moisture vapour through when working hard but this is no doubt helped by micro-perforations in the fabric on the less exposed areas.
