RAB's Vapour-Rise Flex Vest offers a closer fit with flexible panels at the sides combined with RAB's tried and tested VR construction.
Rab says: The Vapour-rise Flex Vest is a light-weight softshell vest with added stretch, designed to offer highly breathable protection, using a 2-layer system unique to Rab.
Developed exclusively by Rab and Pertex, Vapour-rise creates breathable, high wicking and quick drying performance clothing. The Vapour-rise Flex Vest uses a durable Pertex Equilibrium outer fabric and a micro fleece liner to offer core-body warmth in cool summer conditions. Matrix SWS stretch side panels greatly improve the levels of freedom of movement in this vest. Technical features include a full length YKK chest zip, fitted collar and an integrated stuff sack.
These features, combined with the unique Vapour-rise system, plus the added stretch, enable the Vapour-rise Flex Vest to provide breathable, core-body warmth across a range of outdoor activities.
This vest is designed with a slim fit to be worn as a 'booster' layer providing extra warmth. Stretch side panels add to the closeness of the fit. We recommend sizing up for use with multiple layers.

Vapour Rise clothing is designed to be worn next to the skin or over a thin baselayer. The lining and the outer fabric work together to wick sweat away very quickly whilst providing insulation and wind resistance. It`s a very good system for keeping you comfortable when active ideal for three season hiking.
RAB's Vapour-Rise Flex Vest employs the tried and tested VR construction in the majority of the garment but flex panels have been inserted into the sides to provide a closer fit and improve the ventilation in a key area. No hand pockets, just a single small external chest pocket and single small internal chest pocket on the opposite side. We like that the jacket packs into the internal pocket but it comes out pretty creased.
