A pioneer of the soft shell concept the Rab® Vapour-rise system provides superior levels of comfort and protection. Vapour-rise balances wicking, warmth and
wind resistance to maintain a comfortable micro-climate within the garment through 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 ‘pulls’ this moisture to
the outside of the fabric where it quickly dries. The outer is also wind resistant and the DWR finish sheds rain and snow.
This piece of kit should be an essential for every mountaineer, climber, mountain biker and off road adventurer. Vapourrise
has many applications from single layer use in fast moving activities such as mountain biking through to forming
part of a moisture management layering system in extreme polar or mountain
