The Rab Vital Windshell Hoody is a super packable hooded wind-shirt which is ideal for summer days on the mountain where protection from the cooling wind is required without any compromise of breathability.
Hyperlite is a lightweight, windproof nylon fabric that offers high levels of durability and weather protection without compromising weight and is finished with a DWR coating that provides extended life to the water repellency of the jacket.
The YKK full zip and venting control popper provide you with a variety of ways to regulate your core temperature when required. The hood is elasticated and features a stiffened peak and a rear volume adjustment. The two hand pockets are zipped and sit a little higher above the hips so they can still be utilized if a harness or a rucksack waistband is worn. Part elastic cuffs and a half hem drawcord help prevent the jacket from flapping around in the wind and assist with trapping warm air, keeping your core warm.

Customer Reviews of Rab Vital Windshell Hoody
Excellent product. I previously owned a Buffalo Windshirt and the Rab version is, in my opinion, much better. It's worth saying that the fit is 'snug', but that is no bad thing. The hood is first rate as are the full length zip front and the zip pockets. The the light weight and tiny pack down size mean that it will be going everywhere with me.
The service from Facewest was first class and I will be happy to do business with them again.
