Rab Mens Vapour-Rise Lite Alpine Jacket


Clear selection

Product Description

Lightweight Rab® Vapour-rise softshell jacket using Pertex® Equilibrium fabric and lightweight tricot lining.

For Spring 2012 we have taken everything we have learnt from the Vapour-rise clothing system and put it on a diet! The result is an incredibly breathable and weather resistant ‘soft-shell’ system that really works.

The Pertex Equilibrium outer fabric, when combined with the light tricot lining, gives you a jacket that is wind and water resistant and that offers fantastic moisture management that dries quickly and maintains a comfortable working environment.

Features that include rucksack and harness friendly pockets, a useful under-helmet hood that is unobtrusive when not in use, a 2-way front zip, adjustable cuffs and an adjustable drawcord hem make the Vapour-rise Lite Alpine an ideal all round mountain jacket.

When Rab Carrington started a small company in 1981 Sheffield he was relying on his extensive experience gained on bold, lightweight first ascents to design and manufacture down clothing and sleeping bags of the highest quality. This equipment had to meet the needs of a new breed of lightweight alpinist using techniques pioneered by Rab himself. This equipment had to be designed 'for the most extreme conditions in the world'.

To this day that ethos lives on. The range of product offered may have expanded dramatically but the core values of quality and performance live on. The Rab® range now encompasses all layers from the skin out and makes best use of our close relationship with all our fabric and component suppliers to produce lighter, more breathable, durable and comfortable clothing allowing mountaineers to push their limits in the most hostile of environments.
