Summary

This is the first jacket I have tried with the new Polartec NEOSHELL fabric. I was very impressed with this new fabric and this jacket from Rab.

Pros

  • NeoShell fabric
  • Waterproof
  • very breathable

Cons

  • No hand warming pockets

This jacket is bomb proof! The new Neo fabric from Polartec is as good as advertised... very breathable and yet water/windproof. I used this jacket in Nepal at Everest base camp and absolutely loved it.
