The Vapour-rise Guide Jacket is a winter weight softshell that that really works! Weather protection and supreme breathability using fabric technology originally devised by Rab Carrington himself.
The Vapour-rise range of clothing was developed exclusively by Rab with Pertex to provide a 2 layer system that offers windproof breathable, high wicking and quick drying performance clothing. The result is a versatile single layer for mountaineers, walkers, runners and mountain bikers that has become respected by all that have used it. The New Vapour-rise Guide takes everything we've learnt over the years with our ever popular Vapour-rise range and 'winterfies' it! We use a durable Pertex Equilibrium and double weave soft shell outer fabric and add a Polartec hi-loft fleece liner. When combined these two fabrics create a jacket that balances weather protection, warmth and maximum breathability. With high water repellency, fantastic levels of breathability, a 2 way front zip with internal storm flap, a helmet compatible hood, 2 external pockets and a deep chest pocket (that will take an OS map!!), 2 internal pockets AND pit zips for when you're working really hard! the Vapour-rise Guide is perfect for UK winter conditions - so should really work anywhere!
