Rab Men's Vapour-Rise™ Alpine Light Jacket

Choose a Size

Outstanding wind resistance meets the peerless breathability of our Vapour-Rise™ technology. This lightweight softshell provides weather protection for the most intense mountain activities.


Engineered with wind-resistant yet highly breathable Pertex® Quantum Air featuring a fluorocarbon-free DWR, this lightweight softshell will protect you against stubborn wind during your fast-moving and high-energy mountain pursuits. It uses our Vapour-Rise™ technology and body-mapped fabric to effectively regulate your temperature, with lighter, quick-wicking mesh in high heat areas such as the underarms and back, keeping you comfortable, dry, and warm where you need it.

The protective details have been designed with tricky ascents in mind, such as the helmet-compatible hood with a fully elasticated face opening to seal out wind chill, and a belay-friendly two-way front zip with a soft, fleece-lined chin guard. Elasticated bindings at the cuffs and the lightweight rear hem adjustment help keep in the heat when you’re tackling an exposed rock face, while the oversized chest pockets provide ample storage as well as venting when you’re working hard.
