    Full Description

    The Rab Borealis Jacket is the lightest weight softshell in the Rab range yet it still offers excellent protection from the elements for active mountain use. Constructed from a Matrix single weave softshell fabric that offers great weather protection with the fabric being durable, windproof and air permeable giving high levels of breathability. The outer benefits from a DWR coating and it offers high levels of UPF protection. With the fabric having a two-way stretch the jacket offers great freedom of movement and is slim fitting. 

    The hood is suitable for under helmet use and has a lycra binding for a contoured fit to the face. The two YKK zipped pockets are designed for harness use with being highly placed on the chest and are ideal for keeping essential items close to hand. With the jacket being lightweight it is easily packable and can be stowed inside the left chest pocket. A half hem drawcord assists with keeping the jacket seated under your harness and lycra bound cuffs keep the fit snug for when the weather takes a turn for the worst.

    I order the yellow jacket. It is VERY visible! It is extremely light and feels fragile; time will tell how it stands wear, of which it should get a lot when the summer heat with strong winds can give rise to a need to be protected from the cooling effects of the wind when I stop.

    This is my second Borealis, so yes Iam a fan. With technical garments like this your expectations need to be realistic ie what do you want it to do?( As far as I know the one jacket that does it all is yet to be developed.)The Borealis is a very comfortable , stretchy light weight wind protector which breathes well. It gives little rain cover, but you can wear it all day on breezy days either over a base layer/and or light fleece and you won't know you're wearing it. Keep it in your rucksack at all times, but if the weather looks bad don't forget the hard shell

    Great lightweight jacket. I use the jacket for climbing and walking in summer. Keeps the wind off and packs very small. FYI this is not shower proof so you will need a water proof jacket

    I bought this for the cooler days and nights when mountain biking. I's proved just about right with a baselayer or heavier mid layer below and with the high zip neck it keeps the cold out. Size medium- 5™11 and 13st 2. Impressed so far!

    Excellent lightweight windproof jacket. Comfortable and practical, I have used it for walking and cycling (bright orange colour is great) Pockets will take a standard OS map - very useful.

    Great jacket from rab . As a keen photographer I wanted something light to throw in the camera bag to keep the wind and chill off when required. This Rab top works really well and is very lightweight and so takes up no space when packed. I'm also finding it perfect when on the mountain bike as a windbreaker. Would definitely recommend this Rab Borealis jacket.
