The Spark Jacket is a stripped down, stretch waterproof jacket constructed using Pertex Shield+ 2.5 layer fabric. Designed for fast and light climbing or adventure racing.

Rab says:

Revised for Spring/Summer ’16, the Spark Jacket is a minimalist stretch waterproof jacket designed primarily as a fast-and-light climbing or adventure racing piece.

This revised version of our highly successful Spark Jacket is now even lighter, and offers a number of new features which make the Spark Jacket the go-to waterproof for high-intensity activities in harsh, wet environments. With an updated helmet-compatible hood design, an updated chest pocket design including part-mesh chest pockets with rain drains and a reflective detailing to further lend this jacket to adventure racing in the winter months.

The Spark Jacket is designed in a regular fit to allow high levels of freedom of movement and to allow a baselayer to be comfortably worn underneath.

Pertex Shield+ is an exceptional fabric, it achieves high ratings and yet is so lightweight. The version used by RAB in the Spark Jacket also has stretch properties which make this jacket more comfortable to move around in.

What makes this jacket so good is the low weight and stretch properties, its ideal therefore for a range of activities from mountain marathons to day treks to mountain running. Feature-wise that jacket has been updated with a helmet compatible hood, reflective detailing and a new and improved chest pocket design. This revised jacket is even lighter than the previous model!

lightweight breathable waterproof

Great jacket, I've got this and a similar Montane Minimus Stretch jacket, both made of the same material. The Rab feels more substantial and does handle rain downpours much better. Lightweight and very breathable, little to complain about, the pockets I guess could be at the sides rather than in the middle.

Light waterproof

Excellent quality. It weighs very little and is very light. It has a soft touch. It seems that it has good breathability. The weight and volume is the best part of this jacket. It's perfect for a 3 layer, all season jacket, especially for spring and summer.
