The Rab Vapour-Rise Alpine Jacket is a lightweight and highly breathable jacket that incorporates Rab's Vapour-Rise technology with a wicking fleece liner, designed for climbing and multi-sport use. 

Rab says:

Revised for Spring/Summer ’16, previously known as the Vapour-rise Lite Alpine Jacket, the Vapour-rise Alpine Jacket now comes with a number of new features which make this light-weight, highly breathable softshell jacket a go-to piece for summer climbing and sport use.

Developed exclusively by Rab and Pertex, Vapour-rise creates breathable, high wicking and quick drying performance clothing. The Vapour-rise Alpine Jacket now features a fully helmet-compatible hood and anti-snag Velcro adjustable cuffs to increase an already packed feature set.

The Vapour-rise Alpine Jacket (previously known as the Vapour-Rise Lite) now features a fully helmet-compatible hood and anti-snag velcro adjustable cuffs. All good improvements. These features lend this jacket to climbing and multi-sport use in the summer months, whilst the high wicking nature of the Vapour-rise fabrics also enable the Alpine Jacket to be worn during the winter months as a next-to-skin layer.

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.

My Go-To Jacket

I purchased the pull-on version of this first and liked it so much I got this hooded version which quickly became my go-to jacket. Very comfortable and surprisingly good in wet and windy weather though it doesn't replace a hard shell. For me it's a replacement for a fleece being reasonably warm with the addition of shedding light rain and wind. As a lightweight top the material is now showing some signs of wear with a bit of bobbling on the arms and sides, it won't last forever but when it dies I'll be getting another.
