RAB's Windveil Jacket uses an enhanced Pertex Microlight fabric with an enhanced DWR coating making it highly water resistant and durably water resistant - even after washing. As a wind proof jacket it will provide good protection from the elements however, rather than being the lightest it could be the Windveil two decent external handpockets and an inside pockets with press stud closure that doubles as a stuff sack.
The hood is a simple affair that sits neatly around the face and a really nice feature of a press stud on the main closure, at chest height, which allows you to have the front open for venting without the jacket blowing around too much.
The fabric has quite a striking matt finish in contrast to a lot of the other windproof jackets out there made from shiny nylon.
