Ideal for long mountain days where you’re regularly stopping and starting, the Vapour-Rise Jacket is a lightweight, highly breathable jacket with micro-fleece liner. Created for climbing and multi-sport use in milder climates, it’s ideal for times when temperatures can vary.
The Vapour-Rise Jacket is designed to regulate temperature. Using Rab Vapour-rise technology and Pertex® Equilibrium outer fabric, it is moisture wicking and quick drying. To be worn over a baselayer or next to skin, the micro-fleece insulation is soft and wicking. Adjustable velcro cuffs and hem drawcord help get the right fit, while two large YKK® 'A'line hand pockets with micro-fleece lining provide warmth in chillier moments.
Designed with multi-pitch routes in mind, the Vapour-Rise Jacket incorporates climbing features including helmet compatible hood, wired peak, and a roll down anti-snag velcro tab. The two way YKK® front zip is useful for belaying, while the internal storm flap and chin guard retain warmth. In a comfortable regular fit, the articulated sleeve cut facilitates movement, and the YKK® zipped internal pocket doubles as integrated stuffsack so you can pack the jacket away during sunny spells.
Perfect for the UK climate, and the likes of spring time in Snowdonia, the Vapour-Rise Jacket is lightweight, durable, and highly breathable. With features to keep you comfortable on the walk-in, the belay, and the climb.

The women's Rab Vapour-rise Jacket (previously known as the VR One Jacket) now features 2 large A-line hand pockets and a zipped internal pocket instead of the 2 large napoleon pockets and 2 micro fleece hand pockets. By reducing the number of pockets (which personally seemed like overkill to start with) you get a lighter jacket that's just as comfortable.
It's feature set lends this jacket to climbing and multi-sport use in the summer months, whilst the high wicking nature of the Vapour-rise fabrics also enable the Jacket to be worn during the winter months as a next-to-skin layer.
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.
