All about this product



The Men's Downpour Light Jacket by Rab is the perfect choice for day hikes and scrambles when the weather is uncertain. This jacket combines the protection and breathability of the signature Proflex technology in a lightweight and easily packable design. The 2.5 layer Proflex is quiet and breathable but also features a soft, textured backer which is comfortable next to skin. Throw it over a T-shirt during a brief shower, and you're good to go!


With a streamlined design, it keeps the features to a minimum, yet it is equipped with everything you need for exploing beyond the treeline in unpredictable summer weather. The close fitting hood is easily adjustable with a single hand pull, and it's stiffened peak prevents drizzle from obstructing your vision.


Seal out the elements with the low-profile hook and loop cuff adjustments, while the extended cuffs help to protect your hands from the wind. The articulated sleeves ensure a full range of arm movement, and the two pack-compatible zipped hand pockets allow easy access to essentials even when wearing a backpack. Comfortable and packable, the Downpour Light Jacket stands out as your go-to shell for any mountain day with unpredictable weather.

About this brand


The Rab story began in 1981 in the attic of a small, terraced house in Sheffield where Rab Carrington made the first sleeping bag to bear his name. Hand-stitched and devised with his own ingenious eye, Rab's experience from years spent in the mountains was apparent in his designs, and soon there was popular demand from Rab's friends and the growing local climbing community. Now, decades later, those honest, hard-wearing designs can be found all over the world; wherever adventurous individuals face up to the elements. From Himalayan peaks to cold, crisp evenings around a camp fire. This began as the brand's story, but it also belongs to those who've loved and cared for each and every one of our products. Who've made them their companions on long trips and expeditions.
