User Review: Cloudveil Men's RPK Jacket
Price Paid: $180
The Cloudveil RPK is a softshell jacket. It was the company's use of softshell that attracted me to the RPK jacket. Out of the box, the RPK is a totally quality product, exactly what I would expect from Cloudveil. The fabric is sturdy and somewhat stiff. It’s a moderate weight that’s appropriate for alpine skiing in all but the harshest conditions.
The RPK has plenty of pockets, both exterior and interior, including lined handwarmers, napoleon, and a mesh goggle pocket on the interior. The hood zips off and is helmet compatible. The pit zips adjust from either direction for exceptional control of cooling. There’s also a powder skirt which doesn’t zip out. On the upper sleeve is a cool little pocket with a built in bungy for holding your ski pass.
The fit is good. There’s plenty of room underneath for layering – including a puffy should you need it – without feeling bulky. The RPK is lined with a micro fleece so it does tend to grab hold of certain fabrics causing them to bind up when putting the jacket on.
Overall, it's a great jacket for the slopes, cool weather hiking and camping. It’s got all the features you need and a few more.
