Excellent jacket, returned to wearing Rab products winter 2018. Robust, well made and very well priced compared to some more of the more higher priced brands that simply don't live up to the hype.

Great soft shell

Very snug and warm, bizarrely warm for the weight. It feels more like a thick jumper but appears as warm as my montane extreme jacket. Stood watching football in heavy rain for 90 mins at 4 degrees with a cotton tee shirt underneath- warm and dry ( I initially put a fleece hoodie underneath but took it off- just not as comfy). You don’t appear to overheat, walking in and out of shops isn’t an issue. The neck and chin comfort is great - you can fold the hood fleece out and it becomes a neck warmer. At 6’4” and 17stone the xxl fits well but sadly not long enough to replace the extreme xxxl for snowboarding. Fantastic coat - thanks

This is the best all round jacket I’ve ever had. Soft shell outer is brilliant and very water repellant. Can be worn in a downpour if you haven’t got a hard shell. Worth every penny. Class product.

Does the Job!

Warm, windproof, and water resistant.
This Softshell Jacket has a good thickness of Fleece layer inside, ideal for colder conditions.
I always bought 'windproof' fleece prior to this purchase, so I was bit unsure how a Softshell would perform.I am very impressed with this Jacket.

So good I bought two!

Yes I have two of these fantastic jackets. A medium and large. I can layer anyway I choose depending on the conditions. For milder days a base layer and the medium or, if it’s colder a base layer and mid-layer plus the large size. Or if it’s raining the medium plus the Rab Firewall pertex shield jacket too. Marvellous!

Buy It,

Easily the best jacket I’ve ever owned. Bought it around 3 years ago . The most comfortable jacket ever . I use it to walk to work and back, which is two and a half miles there and the same back. The side vents are great if you get too hot. Although it’s not waterproof, it withstood 40 minutes of heavy rain 7/10) with only minimal water getting through. Almost no wind will ever get through. I do have to reproof it every winter though. I think it would be too warm to climb in unless you were climbing in a very cold wind, then it would really be your best friend. I have no hesitation in recommending it and will definitely buy another when it wears out. Only problem so far is the hem drawcord has disconnected internally, although this isn’t a problem as the adjustment toggles keep it tight. Expensive, but worth it. Ideal for walking, but would be cold if you were standing still in cold weather.

Great Winter Jacket

The Vapour Rise Guide Jacket has been my favourite Winter Jacket for many years now and has kept me warm in the coldest of weather while never over heating or sweating with Rab's brilliant Vapour Rise Fabric. I was desperate to get my hands on the new jacket with the new Polartec alpha insulation and I have not been disappointed. This great jacket is even better while lighter in weight at the same time. I cannot recommend it enough for winter wear.

Great all rounder

Love this jacket. You can wear it as an outer or mid layer, it's water and wind resistant, comfortable, warm and has plenty of pockets. Really looking forward to getting out in the wild to test it properly but looking great so far.

A very good jacket

Had the VP Guide for a week now, and I'm very impressed with it.

+ Extremely comfortable (with the hood up, its like walking around in a sleeping bag)
+ The lining is very nice and warm
+ Looks great
+ They've added a velcro fastener for rolling up the hood

- The material creases easily, so storing it properly is important
- When putting your arms through, it can sometimes result in the lining protruding out of the cuffs, so bit of adjustment is needed.

Spent a while pondering this purchase as it’s a costly item but as usual with Rab kit a well thought out jacket. Really good insulation with or without a shell jacket.
Used walking the dog in recent cold snap with a gore-tex jacket & was toasty ! Breathes really well & having an extra layer of hood makes all the difference. Well worth the outlay & being a Rab it will last.....

Great purchase

This jacket gets used as both an outer layer and a mid layer dependent on weather and temperature. I am currently using out in eastern Europe no snow yet but ice most mornings ive even worn it with another mid layer underneath and a windproof outer layer stood around for 3 hrs at about 3 degree not even a shiver. This jacket is versatile enough to be used all year round does well holding off water in light rain wouldn't want to test it in a down pour though.

Very light jacket, warm, windproof with water resistance.

This is a great jacket. It is so light it barely feels like you're wearing it, but this does not detract from how warm it is. It is not considered waterproof, but I found it holds its own in reasonable showers, besides it has such a small footprint you could use it as a mid layer. It is definitely windproof, 70 mph winds did not penetrate it, this is a quality product.
Fantastic jacket for all occasions, it's fully articulated and won't hold you back.
