RAB's Flashpoint Jacket has amazing breathability characteristics combined with good waterproof performance and a full feature set.
Revised for SS16, the Flashpoint Jacket is our lightest weight waterproof jacket, using a super-light Pertex Shield + 3-layer fabric, offering the ultimate balance of weight and performance.
In this, the latest reincarnation of our ground-breaking Flashpoint Jacket, now featuring an updated super light-weight Pertex fabric, we have designed the ultimate combination of performance, weight and protection. Despite the obvious desire of keeping the weight down, we were keen to ensure that the Flashpoint remained a fully featured technical outdoor jacket, and to this end we have included a fully helmet-compatible hood, a YKK AquaGuard zipped chest pocket and an integrated stuff sack.
The Flashpoint truly finds the balance in super light-weight yet still fully featured outdoor kit.

Rab's new Flashpoint jackets feature Pertex Shield + which has a hydrostatic head rating of 2m, and is highly breathable. Not all Pertex Shield + is the same - the version used in the Flashpoint is particularly breathable and is a full 3 layer construction which adds durability to the performance features of the fabric.
The fabric is so thin the garment’s almost translucent, so it won’t stand up to being scraped along a rock wall, but in its intended environment (adventure racing and ultralight backpacking) its an amazing piece of kit, with a technical hood, velcro cuffs and even a pocket - 210grams!
