A versatile trouser for mountaineers, walkers, scramblers and campers needing year-round weather protection.

Extremely breathable, fast wicking and quick drying
Highly wind and weather resistant
High durability/abrasion resistance for its weight
Comfortable, lightweight and very packable

Rab Vapour Rise Guide Pants are winter weight softshell trousers for windproof, breathable, high wicking and quick drying performance.

A micro-pile inner effectively wicks moisture away from the skin, and a Pertex® Equilibrium outer ‘pulls’ this moisture to the outside of the fabric where it quickly dries. The outer is wind resistant, and it's DWR finish sheds rain and snow.

With high water repellency and breathability, 2 hand warmer pockets, half leg side zips, zipped leg vents, a part-elasticated waistband with beltloops and brace attachment points the Rab Vapour-rise Guide pants are ideal for UK winter mountain conditions, fantastic for use at altitude or on polar trips, where high levels of breathability are essential.

  • Pertex® Equilibrium® (DWR treated outer)
  • Standard VR inner
  • 2 YKK ½ leg side zips, 2 YKK venting leg zips
  • 2 YKK handwarmer pockets, 1 YKK thigh pocket
  • Part-elasticated waistband with snap closure and belt loops
  • Zip fly
  • Articulated knees
  • Brace attachment points
  • Hem drawcord adjusters
  • Crampon patch at hem
  • Eyelets for threading under-boot cord
  • Reflective trim
  • Regular fit - inside leg 31"/80cm (size 12)

Pertex® Equilibrium® (DWR-treated outer): highly breathable lightweight double weave softshell fabric with high water repellency in key areas, for durability and comfort: balances high wind resistance with fast wicking and drying.
During high aerobic activity, moisture is transported away from the skin to the outside of the fabric where it evaporates, hence creating body temperature ‘Equilibrium’.

Best Trousers Ever, 14 January 2016
By GB480 (Halifax)
Bought these trousers from my local store as they were half the prof which was an error on there part. These trousers are fantastic so warm and totally wind proof and with the gaiter like material at the bottom the mud comes straight off.

Rab well done

Wonderful trousers, 24 July 2015
By Madame Rose (Highlands)
A very comfortable trouser, warm in winter but breathable in summer, well adapted for the highland climate. I have worn them every day of the winter autumn and spring and they are still like new.expensive but worth it, I would wear them as pyjamas if I could but my husband objected.
