If you’re looking for a "do-it-all" jacket that can handle changing weather conditions in a lightweight package then look no further than the Mens Kinetic Plus jacket from Rab. The Kinetic Plus jacket is designed to provide both the water and wind-proofing of a shell, with the stretch, comfort and warmth of a mid-layer. By sandwiching the PU waterproof membrane between two high gauge moisture wicking Proflex layers, moisture is drawn away from the skin, keeping you dry and your temperature regulated while maintaining a high level of wind and waterproofing.
This is supplemented by the full-length YKK Aquaguard Vislon zip and the Aquaguard A-line front pockets, which keeps water out of key areas. With active uses in mind, the slim fit complements natural movements to ensure comfort at all times, while the stretch-on hood has a stiffened peak to ensure that if the weather changes quickly, you can stay protected from the elements.
With a 10,000mm hydrostatic head, the Kinetic Plus offers an extremely high level of waterproofing for a softshell mid-layer. However, with a breathability of 35,000mm/sqm/24hr this jacket truly excels at allowing your body to breathe even in conditions that might not permit you to remove a layer to stay cool. Coming in slightly thicker than a straight wind-proof jacket option, the Kinetic provides a more protective feel from harsher elements without the associated heavy pack-weight of some alternatives.

Rab Carrington built his company on two things: A deep understanding of what climbers and mountaineers need, and a commitment to practical gear that works.
Throughout much of the 1970’s Rab could be found on ground breaking expeditions around the world. From winter climbing in Scotland and the alps, to expeditions in the Himalaya, Rab gained first-hand experience and understanding what climbers need from their kit.
In 1981 the native Scotsman moved to Sheffield to set up Rab. By first deciding how gear should be used, then designing for that use, Rab was able to produce specialist down sleeping bags and jackets with fresh dimension suitable for high performance mountaineering gear, offering products better than any other available at the time.
Jump ahead over 25 years and Rab are still at the forefront of innovation and performance. From their super lightweight bivi bags to tough, waterproof and breathable eVent™ jackets, Rab have created some of the most hardwearing and specialist kit in the world. Rab are still to this day designed and produced within the UK, using the highest quality, lightweight materials to create award winning products; and are ceaselessly committed to Rab’s exacting standards, ingenuity and pioneering spirit.
