A really lightweight and highly breathable soft shell jacket, designed for active outdoor use throughout the year.

The ever popular Rab Vapour-rise Alpine Jacket has been subtly updated to now include a fully featured helmet-compatible helmet hood and anti-snag hook and loop adjustable cuffs.

Developed exclusively by Rab® and Pertex®, Vapour-rise™ combines great breathability, with high wicking and quick drying performance to create a truly versatile all-season jacket.

Whilst not fully waterproof or windproof, it still manages to block out a large percentage of wind and will keep you well protected if caught in a light shower, and will soon dry out if you're unlucky enough to have a downpour.

Perfect for climbing and multi-sport activities throughout the summer months, you'll find that the high wicking nature of the Vapour-rise™ fabric also allows you to wear it as a next-to-skin layer during the winter.

  • Durable Water Repellent finish
  • Helmet compatible hood, wired peak, roll down anti-snag hook and loop tab
  • 2-way YKK® front zip, internal storm flap and chin guard
  • 2 YKK® zipped Napoleon large chest pockets, left pocket doubles as integrated stuff sack
  • 1 YKK® zipped internal pocket
  • Anti-snag hook and loop adjustable cuffs
  • Hem drawcord

HIPS: Stand with your heels together and measure around the fullest part.

Highly versatile jacket

Keeps me dry in decent showers, highly breathable, even when warm I am at least comfortable. It has replaced an older softshell for cycling, but I have almost completely stopped carrying a waterproof

Great Product!

My third Vapour-rise Alpine - best soft-shell jacket I have ever had. If you spend time in the hills buy one of these! Windproof, warm, incredibly light and dries in minutes. As always, the guys at Go Outdoors York were helpful and friendly.

Rab Vapour Rise Jacket

Road tested my jacket today in brisk cold wind with zero degree temperatures, wore only a merino base layer and found the jacket to be not to windproof in the prevaling conditions but comfortable once warmed up. fitting was a bit neat for a medium but very satisfyed with purchase

Great, Great,Great.

This is what you expect from RAB, light weight and very warm. I have no idea as to how waterproof it will be but cant fault it for being warm and windproof, off to get the trousers as the jacket is so good.

Rab Vaporise Alpine Jacket

Better than a fleece when used as a mid layer, lighter and windproof, can also be used as a base layer next to the skin in summer. Much warmer than the weight would suggest, packs down really small, I use mine for hiking, the chest pockets are ideal for navigational aids being just above my back pack belt, only shower proof but dries quickly. I love it.

Vaporise jacket

Love mine. One of those jackets you can just grab on the way out for a walk knowing it will cover most weather conditions the UK weather throws at us

Rab Soft Shell

Love this jacket having bought in a different colour way. Fits brilliantly even after going for a larger size in order to layer with a fleece. Small details make the difference like the clip system to roll the hood way.

vapour rise jacket

Super warm and light weight. Used this jacket in the lake district and found it superb! very warm and highly breathable, found it best suited for cooler weather as it insulates so well for a thin jacket. would highly recommend this jacket. I managed to find it cheaper online and saved £50 with go outdoors price match guarantee! by far the best jacket I own.

Rab vapour jacket

Amazing jacket! Warm, shower proof, wind blocker. Light and easy to pack. Worth every penny!
Go Outdoors allowed me to reserve one in store, however the store didn't have one, ordered and paid on line and received the wrong size, after about ten days I feel like nelly received and excellent product!
Great product, questionable service!
