Up at the crack of dawn and out until dusk. As the lightest and most breathable piece in our re-engineered Vapour-Rise™ range, the VR Ridgeline Jacket is built for comfort when moving fast in the mountains.
The VR Ridgeline Jacket is designed to maximise airflow for energetic hikes, fast-paced scrambles and highly physical mountain recreation. The outer is built from lightweight Pertex® Quantum Air for the ideal active balance between air permeability and wind resistance. The softshell jacket also uses a body-mapped combination of fast-wicking brushed polyester insulation and mesh lining for extra comfort when working hard. Equipped with a DWR coating for additional weatherproofing, it features a collar which has been designed to fit comfortably with both climbing and ski helmets. It also features a single chest pocket for valuables, a lightweight full-length YKK® front zip, an adjustable hem and elasticated cuffs.
With its pared back feature set, hood-free design, fast-wicking Vapour-Rise™ construction and all-in weight of 223g, the VR Ridgeline Jacket is a versatile all-day layer for multi-sport mountain adventure.
The Rab Vapour-Rise™ system provides superior levels of comfort and protection in softshell garments. Vapour-Rise™ balances wicking, warmth, and wind resistance to maintain a comfortable micro-climate within the garment suitable for a wide range of activity levels and weather conditions. It is best worn either next to skin, or more commonly over a wicking base layer. A micro-pile inner effectively wicks moisture away from the skin, and a Pertex® Equilibrium outer draws this moisture to the outside of the fabric where it dries quickly. The outer is also wind resistant and the DWR finish sheds rain and snow.
