A super-light weather resistant jacket, useful for most outdoor activity even in bracing conditions.


The Rab Vapour-rise Lite Alpine is a lightweight soft shell jacket that's versatile enough to suit whatever your outdoor actrivity.

Lighter, cooler, more windproof and more packable than the standard Rab Vapour-rise, it's ideal for warmer conditions or more intense activity.

Extremely versatile, it offers light insulation with wind and rain resistance. This makes it an ideal outer layer, or mid-layer with a waterproof shell for high energy activities such as mountain running and cycling. These features are equally suited to lightweight backpacking, hill-walking or summer alpine use.

Pertex® Equilibrium fabric offers high levels of breathability and unparalleled moisture management properties, keeping you comfortable across a wide range of situations.

  • Short cut, slim fit 
  • Lightweight tricot lining
  • Excellent wicking properties and fast drying fabrics
  • Single exit hem drawcord, thumb loops 
  • Adjustable laminated hook and loop cuff tabs
  • 2-way YKK front zip with internal storm flap and chin guard

Replacing my old one!, 01 April 2016
By wassste (Kent)
It's the most versatile jacket I've owned using it all year round hiking, climbing, ski touring... Its showerproof and very breathable but after a lot of use the old one was worn where it has rubbed against my rucksack, so the only option was to replace it!

Great jacket, 07 March 2016
By JeffroQ (Flintshire)
This is my 1st piece of Rab kit. Usually the cut isn't right for me (I'm everything from a small to a large depending upon brand). However the large in this is spot on. It is very warm and wind proof when active I bought it as a mid layer to go under a paramo for a trip up Snowdon on Saturday. The paramo stayed in the pack until clogwyn station. It was very cold up there huge snow drifts and pretty strong winds. I usually have to put an insulated jack on when I stop at the top but not with this as a mid layer in fact I had all the paramo vents open. Over all very imprest with this jacket. It is light, warm, windproof and water resistant. I'm thinking it will work well in the spring summer and autumn and replace the fleece or softshell that I usually carry. Once again top marks to the staff at Chester Go outdoors.

Curious product, 01 November 2014
By Sulphonamide (Aberdeen)
Not quite sure whether this is cunningly designed to fit a niche need or whether it is me that has unusual requirements and the VR Lite is in fact appropriate for the mass market. Have to say I really like it, but it is not at all wind-proof (3 weekends in a row of mid-level walks in 40 - 50 mph winds) and strong breezes go right through it almost as if it were a fleece (though that observation is contrary to an earlier review). Likewise it is pretty warm and I find myself forever having to unzip and pull up sleeves on the way up, only to pull them down and shortly afterwards feel too cold and need a primaloft as soon as I stop. Haven't yet tried it in more than spitting rain, but think it will probably do OK in moderate conditions. Perhaps if it had pit-zips it would have a wider (comfortable) operating temperature.
