Super deal on a lightweight womens' rain jacket

If you are small and like red, this one is only $29.99 at Sierra TP:

Original price was $179. It is available in other colors and sizes on other sites, such as Amazon, REI, etc. if you search with Google, it is the Outdoor Research Helium Traveler jacket for the mid-thigh length. They also make a Helium II which is shorter and not often on sale.

Note that this jacket runs VERY small, a full size or more. I think that is why it ended up on sale everywhere. I am a size 0 -2 and often an XS is too big for me. For this jacket, the size Small is a perfect fit, with just enough room for layering underneath. The Pertex fabric is very light; even with the longer length mine weighs in at 216 g.

It is not just for petites. Other sizes are available on Amazon, still at a decent price ( just not $30). The longer length makes it an attractive and practical lightweight jacket for travel. You just have to include the word "Traveler" innthe Google search, or younwill get the newer Helium II, which is hip-length, not as long.
