Rab Vapour-Rise Lite Jacket
Source: bought it new
True multi-use piece. Pertex fabric is light years ahead.
- Full coverage windproff
- Really does breathe
- Thumb loops a little bulky when rock climbing
The ultimate multi-use layer. Tough enough as a windshell for rock climbing. Warm enough as a shell over a base-layer for approaching ice and alpine routes or slogging up boot tracks for backcountry skiing and riding.
Great road cycling shell. While not a cycling specific piece, it works great for very cold mtb rides or for cold windy road biking. If there was a cycling specific version with jersey pockets I would get it.
Layers great over light to heavy baselayers. Any other layer slips easily over the shell fabric. Add just a little bit of warmth. The one chest pocket holds a snack, cell phone, headlamp, etc with ease.
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
The Rab Vapour-Rise Lite Jacket offers the same technology as the softshell, but in a lighter format. By balancing wind resistance and breathability the Vapour-rise Lite Jacket creates a comfortable operating environment through a wide range of activities. The result is a close fitting soft shell that is weather resistant, lightweight, high wicking and quick drying.
