UOG TOP PICK - RAB's Charge Jacket - Lightweight all rounder - We've singled out RAB's Charge Jacket because its a great example of a lightweight waterproof jacket. The fabric performs well, it has a well designed hood and all the right features.

RAB's Charge Jacket uses the highly respected Pertex Shield+ but this time with stretch. A neater hood than helmet compatible ones and two high set chest pockets complete this impressive shell.

Rab says: The Charge Jacket is a stripped-down waterproof jacket, using a stretch Pertex Shield+ fabric, designed for light-weight and packable all round protection.

Key features include an adjustable hood with roll-down closure, YKK AquaGuard zips throughout, and an integrated stuff sack for packing the jacket away.

The Charge Jacket is made using high quality Pertex Shield+ fabric with stretch, which offers high levels of breathability, lending this jacket to long days walking on the hill or as an emergency piece when climbing in wet conditions.

|Pertex Shield+ Fully Waterproof Breathable Fabric - with high 20,000mm Hydrostatic Head and high 20,000g MVTR breathability rating Pertex Shield+ delivers very high performance at very low weight. Click Logo to read more...

RAB's Charge Jacket is made from Pertex Shield + 2.5Layer fabric with a stretch component woven into it. Pertex Shield + has an excellent reputation as a super lightweight waterproof and breathable fabric so we know this jacket is going to perform well.

The Charge jacket differs from the Spark (which is a similar jacket) by having stretch in the fabric, a smaller hood and a different pocket arrangement, making it more suited to a trekking application. The fabric also feels noticably softer than the standard Pertex Shield+.

The garment is well designed with a technical, fully adjustable hood, water resistant zips throughout and velcro adjusted cuffs.

2.5 layer fabric is not as durable as 3 layer but its a key part of getting the fabric this light - so backpacking through days of rain with a 20kg pack is probably going to overwhelm it - but if you're packing light and don't expect to be wearing a waterproof constantly then the Charge could be a good choice.
