When it comes to design, the quality manufacturers have got waterproof shells sorted and RAB is one of the best. Choosing a jacket then comes down to fabric and features. Rab's Mantra Jacket uses a 3 layer Pertex Shield Pro, as its three layer this means that its a bit more durable than 2.5 layer garments that only have a scrim covering over the inside face of the membrane.
Pertex Shield Pro fabric has been designed to provide waterproof, windproof and highly breathable protection for extended use in extreme conditions. The Mantra has a built in stretch to the fabric which makes for a more comfortable fit, this will be especially apparent if you are (say) scrambling part of a route. Its got good waterproof ratings and although breathability isn't quoted Pertex Shield Pro is pretty good in all its forms.
Overall it's safe to say the Mantra Jacket will keep you dry and comfortable if you're active in wet & windy weather.
