The Rab Vapour Rise Guide Jacket is a versatile breathable soft shell jacket with an insulating Polartec Alpha liner. This durable jacket is superb for ski touring or climbing in dry cold conditions where you are working hard and it also makes a great winter walking jacket.

The Polartec Alpha liner provides extra warmth and under the arms and back areas, wicking micro fleece insulation enables breathability. Regular fitting it gives flexibility with layering options for year round use.

I will be taking Part in The Spine Race in January and need a windproof jacket that could deal with the types of conditions on the Pennines in winter that would also be highly breathable during high exertion and also keep out light rain. I have been able try it out in the current sub zero conditions and it is performing very well. The fit is great and the quality is very good as you would expect from Rab.
I received this jacket as a Christmas gift. I was a bit concerned about how thin the outer material was, as I would be using the jacket for winter mountain walking and scrambling. To no real surprise the jacket has performed amazingly, it's so tough and resistant to scrapes up against rock! All you need to wear underneath is a thin base layer or a t-shirt in milder conditions. The Vapour Rise Series from Rab is really suited to long mountain days where high aerobic activity are encountered but a degree of weather resistance is still needed! To sum up a great all round jacket and awesome service from FaceWest!!
It is a jacket that appears to be somewhat heavy, but it isn't. It is comfortable and warm and very breathable. Combined with a baselayer, I use for rock climbing in cold days. It is more bulky to wear a fleece and a separate softshell. This garment offers both with less volume and gives you more freedom of movement. In addition, it is a good backup for those sunny days that end up in storm when you are still coming down from the wall. In short, design very successful and excellent idea of uniting a hot fabric and another weatherproof. Super recommended if you have clear ideas about your activity.
