Why complicate your kit list? Warm at the peak and comfortable during intense activity, Rab's softshell VR Summit Jacket is the ideal all-in-one, multi-sport mountain system.
As the warmest piece in the new Vapour-Rise™ collection, the VR Summit Jacket is perfect for a range of winter activities, from skiing and ice climbing to cold-weather mountaineering. It features the latest Vapour-Rise™ technology, which uses a fast-wicking brushed polyester lining inside a highly breathable Pertex® Quantum Air shell to keep you dry and comfortable between periods of exertion and moments of rest. To help maximise its breadth of mountain applications, it also features a weatherproof DWR coating and an adjustable helmet-compatible hood with stiffened peak. The adjustable hem and cuffs help tailor the fit, the secure handwarmer pockets are elevated to stay clear of a climbing harness, and the full-length YKK VISLON® double-ended front zip makes belaying a breeze.
With its advanced Vapour-Rise™ system, Rab's VR Summit winter softshell jacket does the work of several separate garments, providing outstanding all-weather comfort for cold mountain activities.
Vapour-Rise™ System - The Rab Vapour-Rise™ system provides superior levels of comfort and protection in softshell garments. Vapour-Rise™ balances wicking, warmth, and wind resistance to maintain a comfortable micro-climate within the garment suitable for a wide range of activity levels and weather conditions. It is best worn either next to skin, or more commonly over a wicking base layer. A micro-pile inner effectively wicks moisture away from the skin, and a Pertex® Equilibrium outer draws this moisture to the outside of the fabric where it dries quickly. The outer is also wind resistant and the DWR finish sheds rain and snow.
