Providing the stretch and comfort of a softshell with the protection of a hardshell. The perfect all-day layer, the new Kinetic 2.0 Jacket is a standout piece with a refined fit offering true multi-activity put-on-keep-on performance.
Our Kinetic 2.0 Jacket is a soft but tough mountain shell, built for comfort without complication. Lightweight and waterproof, with extraordinary stretch and breathability, it is the ideal outer layering piece for unimpeded mobility during fast-paced days in the mountains. Its recycled Proflex™ fabric uses a knitted outer and backer to harness the natural stretch of the internal PU membrane, while enabling exceptional moisture transfer during arduous climbs. The under-helmet hood is equally comfortable, courtesy of a fleecy chin guard, and a flexible polymer peak.
The chest pockets are great for maps, hats and gloves and there is also some useful adjustability at the hem and cuffs. With a weight of just 336g, this is a fuss-free layer you can put on and keep on, throughout the sunny spells, the sporadic showers and the work-rest cycles of even the most changeable day in the mountains.

Rab's Kinetic 2.0 Jacket has been updated with the inclusion of recycled face fabrics which have obvious environmental benefits with no impacts on the performance. It is still a super stretchy and comfortable waterproof jacket blurring the lines between hardshell and softshell with the innovative Proflex fabric. The jacket has the high breathability and soft feel of a 'softshell', but is totally waterproof with a hydrostatic head rating of 10,000mm, it has taped seams like a hardshell, perfectly good for all but the very worst conditions and you can expect to wear it as your hardshell.
This version is much lighter weight and has a stripped back feature set compared to the Alpine jacket which is ideal for a more versatile general use jacket. It has two large hand pockets with water resistant zips high enough to be used when wearing a harness or hip belt. There is another large internal chest pocket. The lightweight design is highly packable so it's ideal for stowing in a pocket on your pack if thinks heat up too much.
