Lightweight Rab Vapour-rise softshell jacket using Pertex Equilibrium fabric and lightweight tricot lining.
For Spring 2012 we have taken everything we have learnt from the Vapour-rise clothing system and put it on a diet! The result is an incredibly breathable and weather resistant `soft-shell` system that really works.
The Pertex Equilibrium outer fabric when combined with the light tricot lining gives you a jacket that is wind and water resistant and that offers fantastic mositure management that dries quickly and maintains a comfortable working environment.
Features that include rucksack and harness friendly pockets a useful under-helmet hood that is unobtrusive when not in use a 2-way front zip adjustable cuffs and an adjustable drawcord hem make the Vapour-rise Lite Alpine an ideal all round mountain jacket.

Vapour Rise clothing is designed to be worn next to the skin or over a thin baselayer. The lining and the outer fabric work together to wick sweat away very quickly whilst providing insulation and wind resistance. It`s a very good system for keeping you comfortable when active ideal for three season hiking.

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.
