Gear Cache Tier:

Built to handle big vert and fast descents during epic days in the backcountry.

The jacket’s 3-layer Gore-Tex® Active technology provides ultimate breathability for high-intensity ski touring, while maintaining its durable waterproof/windproof protection. The Helio Active’s Gore-Tex® C-Knit backer adds to the shell’s overall comfort, replacing the usual crispness of a traditional hardshell with a quieter overall construction. Featuring two harness-compatible hand pockets and a single-adjust Coheasive hood that’s compatible with a climbing helmet, the Helio Active is ready for alpine and ski mountaineering objectives, while full-length pit zip vents allow for quick temperature regulation for high output activity. An internal drop pocket stores essentials and the single-adjust Coheasive hem features an internal cord management system, allowing you to keep out unwanted moisture.

Pretty Gear Isn't Always the Best Gear. 

 

Because the gear we carry is so dang solid, it can go through quite a bit of cosmetic abuse before it stops performing like it should. We will make sure the gear you buy from us meets your expectations and functions as designed, regardless of whether it's new or used. That's why we've come up with a 4 tier rating system for our used gear; Admired, Liked, Loved, and Adored. 

Tier 1 - Admired: 

Practically new, likely never worn outside, just left alone and admired. Recent gear (within the last 5 years), preferably with tags. 

Tier 2 - Liked: 

Light outdoor use, only worn a few times. Recent gear (within the last 5 years), with very light wear. 

Tier 3 - Loved: 

Substantial outdoor use, probably about a season, and clear evidence that someone has loved this gear. Worn enough to be undoubtedly "second-hand."

Tier 4 - Adored: 

Someone has clearly adored this gear. Significantly broken in, showing multiple seasons worth of wear. May have small broken or missing parts, but nothing that detracts from the original functionality of the gear.

Black Diamond Helio Active Shell

I was very pleased with the Tier-2 condition and appearance. It looks new. I appreciate the design of the chest pockets and the decision to eliminate the waist pockets for simplicity. Waist pockets are only accessible if you remove your pack, and chest pockets are easily accessible wearing a pack. My use is winter hiking, snowshoeing, and climbing.
