Rab's Kinetic Plus Jacket is a completely waterproof softshell garment utilising Rab's own Proflex fabric which seems to have it all!

Rab says:

Super light-weight stretch softshell with high levels of breathability and weather resistance. A-line pockets and adjustable cuffs make this piece ideal for a range of mountain activities.

Rab's Kinetic Plus Jacket is a fully waterproof softshell - which is a problem in terms of definition - softshells are highly breathable shell garments that are weatherproof but not waterproof - people use them because they are much more breathable and 'soft' than so called 'hardshells' and for changeable conditions they are a much more comfortable garment than your traditional hardshell. Hardshells are so bad that you find yourself taking them on and off as the rain comes and goes to prevent yourself getting damp from perspiration.

The Kinetic Plus jacket has the high breathability and soft feel of a 'softshell', but is totally waterproof with a hydrostatic head rating of 10,000mm, its even got taped seams like a hardshell, perfectly good for all but the very worst conditions and you can expect to wear it as your hardshell.

Feature-wise it has two large hand pockets, a simple hood with a velcro volume adjuster  and velcro cuffs. The main zip is YKK Vislon with an internal waterproof flap - this means its made from plastic teeth with a coated waterproof tape - these zips are softer and more pliable than nylon coil zips (which are used on the pockets).

This sounds like the waterproof jacket we've been waiting for - and it is - we can't wait to try it out.
