An insulated winter weight version of Rab's classic vapour rise range. The guide is a super warm do it all winter layer for high mountains.
The Vapour-rise Guide Jacket is a winter weight softshell that that really works! Weather protection and supreme breathability using fabric technology originally devised by Rab Carrington himself.
The Vapour-rise range of clothing was developed exclusively by Rab with Pertex® to provide a 2 layer system that offers windproof breathable, high wicking and quick drying performance clothing. The result is a versatile single layer for mountaineers, walkers, runners and mountain bikers that has become respected by all that have used it. The Vapour-rise Guide takes everything Rab have learnt over the years with the ever popular Vapour-rise range and translates it all into a fantastic do it all, go everywhere single layer for winter.
Using a combination of durable Pertex® Equilibrium and double weave softshell outer fabrics, Rab have added a Polartec hi-loft fleece lining to create a jacket that perfectly balances weather protection, warmth and also maximises breathability. With a high degree of water repellency, fantastic levels of breathability, a 2 way front zip with internal storm flap, a helmet compatible hood, 2 external pockets and a deep chest pocket (that will take an OS map!), 2 internal pockets AND pit zips for when you're working hard, the Vapour-rise Guide is perfect for UK winter conditions.
