The Vapour Rise Alpine Jacket is a very lightweight and breathable jacket suitable for walkers, climbers and mountain bike enthusiasts. With breathable Vapour Rise wicking fabric liner.
The Vapour Rise is surprisingly soft and lightweight and could be used for running or climbing. It wicks away moisture really well during high intensity exercise with the Vapour Rise fabric, and you are not left feeling chilled as it blocks wind effectively too. It has not been designed as a waterproof, but we think you will be fine if caught out in the odd light shower and it will dry out very quick. This jacket has a thin fleece like lining which feels nice next to the skin and two good sized chest pockets plus an inner zipped one for your phone and keys etc. In a relaxed fit you should find plenty of movement and could be worn as a casual jacket in the bar after a days hard climbing on the crag.
