We've all been there--those days in the mountains when Mother Nature can't quite make up her mind and settles instead on intermittent rain. In the past, days like this meant a constant cycle of layering and de-layering as conditions changed, but with the Rab Men's Kinetic Plus Jacket you can put those days behind you. Constructed with a waterproof membrane, this lightweight softshell balances waterproof protection with stretch and breathability for complete comfort in mixed, challenging conditions. A close-fitting stretch hood prevents wind and rain from sneaking into the jacket, while a dropped back hem provides additional coverage whether you're climbing, hiking, or exploring the backcountry on your skis.
