The Charge blends performance and style to give you a simple but effective all-rounder waterproof shell. The lightweight, durable waterproof fabric is combined with stripped back features to make a great jacket that certainly provides value for money.

Rab says:

If you want a tough runner’s waterproof that can also cater for more traditional mountain recreation, the Charge Jacket combines movement-driven design with thicker, more durable fabrics.

While our Charge Jacket has the style and features of a premium mountain running garment, its streamlined design enables it to use heavier, more durable fabrics without inflating the overall weight. In fact, with its tough 40D nylon outer face, you can wear the Charge Jacket just as easily with heavier hiking backpacks as with low-profile mountain running packs. And despite its extra utility, the fact that it uses the same highly breathable membrane and stretch fabric as our lightest mountain running shells means that, when you decide to pick up the pace, it retains all the fitted, body-responsive movement you could want.

Key mountain running features include a semi-elasticated hood with stiffened peak, half micro elasticated hem and cuffs and a separate stuff sack to help keep the weight and complication to an absolute minimum.

Rab's Charge Waterproof Jacket is a light jacket with stripped back features that is a good all-round waterproof shell. The use of Pertex Shield+ allows it to achieve high ratings and stay lightweight. The jacket also has stretch properties which make it more comfortable to move around in so whether you're running, cycling or hiking it is designed to cope. The use of 40D fabric ensure that it's more durable and able to deal with varied activities, where you may be wearing a heavy pack for example.

Feature-wise that jacket is pretty minimalist with a single chest pocket, basic elasticated hood and half elasticated hem and cuffs. This jacket is seriously lightweight without sacrificing durability or versatility which is a great achievement, especially at this kind of price too!

Tested MadFox at -4C. Comfortable, spacious, you can wear a lot of warm clothes under it. Very light and very large front pocket - which can fit (cap, gloves, phone, and even 500ml water) The visor is heavy, so when running with a hood, it jumps and covers its face - this is inconvenient. Otherwise a great jacket.
Original review:
Испытал на забеге MadFox при -4С. Удобная просторная, под нее можно надеть много теплых вещей. Очень легкая и очень большой передний карман - в который может поместиться(шапка ключи перчатки телефон и даже еще и вода на 500ml) Козырек тяжелый, поэтому вовремя бега с капюшоном он прыгает и закрывает лицо - это неудобно. В остальном отличная куртка.
