The Women's Vapour-rise Jacket is an incredibly breathable yet wind and water resistant softshell that can be worn next to skin or as a mid or outer layer.
The Vapour Rise system uses a microfleece inner fabric to wick perspiration away from the skin then the Pertex Equilibrium outer fabric pulls this moisture to the outside of the fabric where it quickly dries. This system makes the Vapour Rise Jacket ideal for a wide range of activities from hiking and climbing to polar exploring. The women’s specific fit sits close to the body around the chest yet provides freedom for the arms and lower body.
As well as fantastic moisture management, the outer is wind resistant and has a DWR finish to shed rain and snow. The fleece lining also provides a good dose of warmth for when the temperature drops.
The hood is helmet compatible and fully adjustable so you can find a great fit, and also has a wired peak and a roll-down tab.

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.
