Why complicate your kit list?
Softshell jackets are designed to bridge the gap between waterproof shell jackets and a fleece
The VR Alpine Light Jacket with its fast-wicking liner, breathable softshell and easy-vent chest pockets, brings you all-day mountain dryness, however intense it gets.
As the middle of the three Rab Vapour-Rise™ layers, the VR Alpine Light Jacket strikes the perfect balance between insulation, breathability and protection.
It uses a shell made from lightweight Pertex® Quantum Air, alongside a combination of VR Wicking and VR Airflow polyester linings to transport excess moisture away from the body.
It then creates a thermoregulating ‘microclimate’ between the layers, which keeps the wearer warm as well as dry.
In addition to a belay-friendly double-ended front zip, the VR Alpine Light Jacket features a pair of oversized zipped chest pockets for additional venting and a lightweight elasticated hood and cuffs to help keep the weight down to just 312g.
Rabs' VR Alpine Light Jacket’s approach to insulation is built on two years of applied field testing with the Association of Mountaineering Instructors.
Warm, dry and uniquely versatile, it is an all-weather mountain layer you need never take off.

Pertex® Quantum Air is engineered with increased air permeability to provide a balance between wind resisrtance and breathability
The more openly woven structure of Quantum Air fabrics allows airflow through the fabric, which helps to regulate your body heat and keep you comfortable for longer.
This balance of air permeability and wind resistance means Pertex® Quantum Air fabrics are perfectly suited to intense mountain pursuits.
A durable water repellent (DWR) finish sheds light rain and snow to provide additional weather protection.
– Higher air permeability
– Increased breathability
– Weather protection for intense activity
