This latest version of the Rab Nucleus Jacket has had some slight tweaks. The fabric has been updated to a Thermic stretch mid-weight fleece with an oval-grid back from the original double knit fleece fabric. This is a little more durable and has a slightly harder face to it which should wear better, preventing the dreaded pilling. We would say this fabric has made it a little warmer and the overall styling of the jacket has been updated for a better fit.
The new fabrics provides warmth and effective moisture management so it can be worn as a baselayer in colder conditions. It uses different textures on the inside and outside to improve performance. The outer has a smooth durable surface and the inner has a grid pattern that provides warmth without compromising breathability.
The flatlock low bulk construction ensures it will layer exceptionally well and the soft, wicking fabric feels cosy next to the skin. It works perfect as an outer layer when climbing or hill walking in warm conditions, or underneath a larger layer in colder conditions.
