RAB's Flashpoint Jacket has amazing breathability characteristics combined with good waterproof performance and a full feature set.

Rab says:

New for Spring/Summer ‘16, the Women’s Flashpoint Jacket is our lightest weight women’s waterproof jacket, using a super-light Pertex Shield + 3-layer fabric, offering the ultimate balance in weight and performance.

In this, the latest reincarnation of our ground-breaking Flashpoint Jacket, now featuring an updated super light-weight Pertex fabric, we have designed the ultimate combination of performance, weight and protection. Despite the obvious desire of keeping the weight down, we were keen to ensure that the Flashpoint remained a fully featured technical outdoor jacket, and to this end we have included a fully helmet-compatible hood, a YKK AquaGuard zipped chest pocket and an integrated stuff sack. The Women’s Flashpoint truly finds the balance in super light-weight yet still fully featured outdoor kit.

Rab's new Flashpoint jackets feature Pertex Shield + which has a hydrostatic head rating of 2m, and is highly breathable. Not all Pertex Shield + is the same - the version used in the Flashpoint is particularly breathable and is a full 3 layer construction which adds durability to the performance features of the fabric.

The fabric is so thin the garment’s almost translucent, so it won’t stand up to being scraped along a rock wall, but in its intended environment (adventure racing and ultralight backpacking) its an amazing piece of kit, with a technical hood, velcro cuffs and even a pocket - less than 200grams!

Worth to spend

Really worth the money spent! I was skeptical, but tried it on bike trip in Norway - fantastic jacket! Good rain jacket and very good for really windy weather. Even when biking, breathes well. Very good adjustable straps, helmet can fit well under the hood. Packs in its own pocket. But I would probably prefer separate packing (mens version has it), as I am worried about pockets stiching - when packing/unpacking many times. So far - verry happy with purchase!
