The Maverick uses new eVent DV Lite - Direct Venting Lite - fabric which is incredibly breathable and remains comfortable when you`re working hard. Conceived as a replacement for the classic Drillium jacket the Maverick features a rollaway wired hood twin zipped pockets and a full YKK front zip with an internal flap and rain drain.
Ideal for use in a wide range of activities the Maverick is a true all-rounder for wet weather use.

The new version of eVent fabric used by RAB to make the Maverick Jacket is specifically constructed to deliver higher levels of breathability with a compromise on the Hydrostatic Head figure. As the argument goes - if a Hydrostatic head of 10,000mm is enough to keep you dry then why produce a fabric with a Hydrostatic head of 30,000mm?
The answer may be a subjective one, but that's what 'Our Verdict' is all about, I'm very happy with 10,000mm Hydrostatic Head for most outings - if I was disappearing to Scotland for a month of rain I'd probably take something with a higher rating.
The Maverick is a jacket that will keep you dry and will breath more effectively than many other waterproof fabrics available, and it looks to be quite robust, so its a good choice for most purposes. Still a little thin for long backpacking trips perhaps - unless you only expect occasional bad weather.
Feature-wise the hood rolls away into the collar and yet still manages a wired peak and cinch cord around the head. Velcro cuffs and decent chest pockets compete the package.

All our products are designed with end-use in mind. The fit of our garments reflects this, and varies across different product categories.
Regular: Medium fitting, contoured with room for movement.
The fit of each garment makes allowances for clothing layers likely to be worn underneath it: a ‘regular fit’ shell jacket will have room for several layers underneath, whereas a ‘regular fit' tee will not.
