The Exodus is a double weave stretch Matrix softshell combining high breathability with moderate weather protection for active mountain use in cold conditions.
The Exodus Jacket is a tough, highly durable softshell jacket, in a highly breathable Matrix DWS™ stretch fabric.
Packed with technical features including a helmet-compatible hood, venting YKK pit-zips and 2 large YKK zipped A-line pockets, the Exodus Jacket has a slightly larger cut to the body, adding extra protection and durability. This piece, along with the Exodus Pants, was originally designed with ski-touring in mind, however the benefits of the Matrix DWS™ stretch fabrics mean you can wear this jacket throughout the winter, whether you're ski-touring, climbing or walking in the mountains.

Rab's Exodus Softshell Jacket is definitely one of our heavier softshell jackets at 718g (medium) but it is one of the toughest as it's made from durable double weave Matrix fabric. Not only is the fabric wind resistant and breathable, it also has a high degree of stretch for better freedom of movement. Ideal for hiking and climbing.
You would expect a softshell jacket of this weight to be fleece lined, but the extra weight probably comes from the features as well as the fabric. Feature wise you've got everything you could need plus more; 2 large hand pockets, pit zips, a small sleeve zip pocket, a helmet compatible hood plus many others.
If protection and durability is what you're after for your next active mountain trip and weight isn't too much of an issue then the Exodus would definitely be worth considering.
