Customer Reviews of Rab Vapour Rise Guide Jacket
I'm really impressed by Vapour-rise Guide Jacket. It's warm and cool when more active. It's also very quick drying after rain and snow. Little bit of a heavy jacket but it is very durable. Top piece of gear and breathable. The hood and pockets need some improvement. I think it is outstanding.
This is a nice quality product from Rab in a really attractive colour. Good fit, comfortable rustle-free fabric, and an excellent hood.But why no pit-zips like the men's Vapour-rise garments ? Although the jacket is nicely breathable, without these I'm forced to dump heat by opening the main zip - far from ideal when conditions are bad!
Otherwise, a great multi-purpose garment.
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.
