Rab Carrington (as in the "Rab" in Rab!) originally devised the Vapour-Rise concept by combining the technology of high wicking micro fleece and Pertex Equilibrium fabrics to produce a single garment with a 2 layer construction that offers superb weather protection and immense breathability.

This is a supremely lightweight and highly breathable hooded jacket that uses a slimmed down version of the highly acclaimed original Vapour Rise system, making it lighter, sportier and more desirable resulting in a feather weight, high wicking top that works as a base layer, mid layer or outer layer. This incredibly versatile jacket offers year round protection for mountain activities by balancing comfort, windproofing and breathability; what more could you need?

The 2 layer Vapour-Rise technology uses your body heat acts as a pump working with the micro fleece brushed lining to push moisture away from your skin and move it to the face fabric. Pertex Equilibrium face fabric has larger filaments on the inside and smaller filaments on the outside. The laws of capillary action dictate that moisture will move from large filaments to smaller ones, pulling your sweat away from the lining and spreading it out over the large outer surface area.  This evaporative heat loss and moisture wicking create a temperature equilibrium to keep you comfortable and dry in all conditions.  Finally a robust DWR treatment on the outside repels water.

The Vapour Rise Lite Alpine Jacket features a fixed hood with a proper wired peak and Rabs brilliant hood design, which I personally think is one of the best. You also get two chest pockets that wont interfere with your pack or your harness. Because the Vapour-Rise Lite Alpine breathes so well it works perfectly as mid layer under your hardshell if the weather turns really nasty. We recommend using the Rab Aeon Tee under Vapour Rise garments as its silky smooth fabric glides smoothly against the VR's wicking liner and maximises the wicking properties.

Excellent customer service. Really detailed easy to understand product descriptions on the Trekitt website, and gear reviews on the Trekitt YouTube channel made it so easy to choose the right backpack for me.

Amazing service! Very helpful in regards sizing and what most matched my needs, despite this being done over the internet. YouTube videos of products being examined are very useful also. Would definitely use again, very fast and efficient delivery. Brilliant! Highly recommended!

Highly recommend. I usually go to the shop in Hereford as staff are alwasy very helpful and knowledgeable. So this was the first time I have purchased online and the service was just as good as the shop.
