RAB's Exodus jacket is highly protective against wind and showers and provides a degree of insulation ideal for early Spring or late Autumn jaunts.
Rab says: The Women's Exodus Jacket is a tough, highly durable softshell jacket, in a highly breathable Matrix DWS stretch fabric.
Packed with technical features including a helmet-compatible hood, venting YKK pit-zips and 2 large YKK zipped A-line pockets, the Women's Exodus Jacket has a slightly larger cut to the body, adding extra protection and durability.
This piece, along with the Women's Exodus Pants, was originally designed with ski-touring in mind, however the benefits of the Matrix DWS stretch fabrics mean you can wear this jacket throughout the winter, whether you're ski-touring, climbing or walking in the mountains.

RAB's Exodus Jacket is a formidable softshell, quite heavy, but that's because its made from a double weave Matrix DWS that delivers the highest possible water resistance without being an out and out waterproof jacket. Matrix DWS fabrics are RAB's own in house development and they really do work - so the Exodus will shrug off summer showers without a problem.
The Exodus is part of a class of softshell that offer insulation as well as wind and water resistance making them ideal winter walking jackets. The insulation value is gleaned from the thickness of the material and the brushed inner face, not as warm as a fleece perhaps, but making a real difference on cool Spring and Autumn days.
The Exodus also benefits from some good features, a technical fully functional hood, hand pockets and pitzips. Pit zips allow you to vent the garment easily under the arms which is a key area for venting the rest of you. The Exodus delivers real protection without the need to resort to hardshells and fleece.
