Customer Reviews of Rab Vapour Rise Flex Vest
Basically this is pretty much what I have come to expect from Rab. A well thought out design, excellent materials and first rate construction. It may seem an odd or almost pointless buy but it does have some benefits namely being incredibly light weight and packing down to almost nothing, The outer Pertex Equilibrium is a very durable material and although not 100% windproof it is probably just about perfect in blocking out most of the wind but still being very breathable. The inner fleece material is very thin and I suspect its primary purpose is to wick away moisture but it does have a surprising amount of warmth for the weight.
My initial impression was that the RRP is high, but no doubt in 10 years time when it's still got years of wear left in it, I will finally acknowledge that it was good value for money after all.
