Rab Vapour-Rise Alpine Light Mens Jacket in Oxblood Red Information

Season : SS21

Brand : RAB

Code : QVR-69-OA

Rab`s VR Alpine Light Jacket is always in its element. With fast-wicking liner, breathable softshell and easy-vent chest pockets, it brings you all-day mountain dryness, however intense it gets.

As the middle of our three new 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.

The 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.

Buyers Guide - How to choose a layer and use it effectively

When you’re out and about enjoying the hills, you are the one in control of how hot or cold you feel. It is up to you to wear the right amount, and type of clothing for the weather and activity you are enjoying. It is up to you to ensure you have eaten and drunk enough (this plays a very important part in temperature regulation). It is up to you to add or remove clothing to regulate your temperature. It is up to you to move faster, or in some cases slower, to control your level of exertion.

Grabbing a jacket and heading out for a couple of hours is great if you know you are going to be returning from the great outdoors to a hot shower and dry clothes but if you are backpacking, climbing our venturing further afield then getting your layering wrong can be a real issue.

The basic rule is to carry all your layers if you are heading out to enjoy the hills because if the weather turns; you cannot put on layers you did not bring along.

- Jargon Busting - what do "layering", "wicking", "moisture vapour" etc mean?
- Why is wicking so important?
- So, if I buy technical wicking clothing will I sweat less?
- What should I look for in a base layer?
- I just need one mid-layer, right?
- Why is a windproof a good thing to buy?
- Surely, I don’t need to carry a hat and gloves in the summer?
- But I’ve spent all this money on performance clothing and I still feel cold. Why?
- What about the environment?




Top tips to make the right choice:

The good news is that there is no shortage of choice, fit or colours when it comes to base and mid-layers.

Once again; fit, is absolutely the most important factor when choosing your clothing. It is critical to function and will make a difference to how a garment performs.

If you are starting out, then make a base layer your first purchase as this is the foundation and possible THE most important part of your clothing system. After all, if it does not absorb your sweat efficiently then it won’t be able to transport it out and away from your body.

Product reviews are great for getting an idea of what you might want but as we have mentioned above everyone is unique and what works well for one person may not be ideal for your personal body shape or metabolism.

Finally, if you don’t own any “performance clothing” don’t despair! People have been climbing mountains for hundreds of years in silk and wool garments – the difference is that they lived in a time when they understood the consequences of getting wet and cold so avoided it. Simply enjoy your adventures in the good weather by adapting your day around a forecast.
Modern outdoor fabrics allow us to remain comfortable in bad weather so long as we understand and use them correctly. Their ability to wick moisture away from our bodies and out through our waterproofs allows us to venture out for great outdoor adventures whatever the weather, spreading our sweaty happiness for all to enjoy!
