Rab's Firewall Waterproof Jacket is a classic shell for everything from hiking to climbing that’s seen a significant refresh. The Pertex Shield 3-Layer membrane provides excellent waterproofing while maintaining a level of breathability rare to a hard-shell jacket. The material is also stretchy, making moving with a heavy pack through inclement weather far more comfortable.

The Firewall is a versatile, hard-wearing jacket, featuring two high handwarmer pockets and a large, centrally zipped stash pocket on the chest. The hood can be adjusted in two directions and is fully helmet-compatible, making this an excellent shell for climbers and hikers alike. All-in-all, a functional, fashionable waterproof suitable for all adventures.

My favourite gear

One of my must take gears when hiking in Northern Scandinavia. Not the lightest, but absolute waterproof and excellent detailing especially effective ventilation. Fit is perfect for tall & slim body and it looks good! Together with Firewall pants a perfect solution for foul weather.

Rab 2019 Firewall Waterproof Jacket

Took delivery of this jacket recently. Exactly what I was looking for in a lightweight semi-budget waterproof jacket. Although it lacks the Gore-Tex fabric of its bigger brother, the Pertex Shield 3-layer fabric offers a cheaper alternate. The YKK AquaGuard zips give added protection against the elements. Additionally, a must have feature for me was armpit ventilation. The double zip pulls provide excellent functionality by allowing just the right amount of heat exchange where you need it. I've given this a five star rating because of the price point per valued features.
