RAB's Torque Softshell Jacket is made from their own Matrix DWS fabric which we've used many times in other softshell garments - and we can report it really works, both in terms of the breathability and comfort experienced when wearing the garment but also in terms of keeping you dry during light showers and mizzle.
Highly stretchy, it's really comfortable to wear and in the scheme of things pretty lightweight. The Torque jacket has been updated and now features reinforced hips as well as on the hood and elbows, to protect against rucksack abrasion. It still features two large external chest pockets which are set above where a rucksack hipbelt or climbing harness would sit, to make sure the pockets are easily accessible.
The front cordlocks are now concealed inside the jacket which is ideal is great if you get sick of being hit in the face with them when the wind starts to pick up.
Overall the new and improved Torque jacket offers great protection for a range of pursuits.
