Some sites describe this as a soft shell jacket but I prefer to describe it as a wind top.
The fabric is Pertex but rather than one of the many lightweight versions of the fabric it uses the Equilibrium fabric. This means it is heaver but also more durable than the lighter weight fabrics. The fabric is not 100% windproof but to all practical intent it might as well be.
The two chest pockets are set high so they clear a rucksack harness.
The garment offers no insulation and is therefore best used with one or more insulating layers underneath. It would hold off a short shower but is not designed to keep out the rain to any great extent.
Here's what other sites are saying:
Lightweight fully featured soft-shell pull-on constructed from light, wind resistant Pertex® Equilibrium. Perfect for alpine climbing, trek & travel and fast & light activities.
The lightweight, stowable Rab Men's Alpine Pull-On Jacket is designed for cool weather ascents, alpine treks, and fast-and-light activities. Wind-resistant Pertex Equilibrium protects your core, arms, head and neck from cool to biting breezes, and is moisture-wicking and water-resistant for added protection. Rab added functional features for full comfort and performance.
