RAB's Newton jacket is made using eVent fabric, which is without doubt one of the leading fabrics for waterproof shell because of its impressive waterproof and breathability characteristics. There are lighter eVent jackets available but RAB have made the Newton jacket from a mid-weight version which will be significantly more durable than the super lightweight ones.
Feature-wise it a polished effort from RAB with an excellent fully adjustable hood, water resistant zippers (the main zip is backed by a rain gutter) velcro adjustable wrists and fabric lined pockets. Some jackets will have mesh lining in the pockets, this is not as durable or as protective than lining them with eVent fabric, though mesh lining does allow you to vent the jacket by leaving the pockets open.
RAB's design choice again indicates that this jacket is seen as a performance piece rather than a purely lightweight offering.

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.
