Rab Mens Kinetic Plus Jacket Ink Information

Season : Sale

Brand : Rab

Code : QFT.85.IK.

What is the Kinetic Plus?

The Kinetic Plus is a very unique creature; it takes the softness, stretchiness and breathability of a softshell, and the waterproof capabilities of a hardshell to create a jacket half way between the two. It's perfect for use in the same situations as you'd normally use a softshell, but where the weather may be a little more changeable.

What is the Kinetic Plus made from?

The Kinetic Plus jacket features Rab's latest development in fabric technology; Proflex. This fantastic component offers an innovative breakthrough in weather protection and flexibility so you can keep moving during changeable and unpredictable weather. This a great example of a highly protective waterproof softshell that combines unimpeded mobility and flex with exceptional softness and user comfort for full on adventures in changeable and challenging conditions.

The secret to its performance is the built in fully flexible waterproof structure that has been laminated between a high gauge knitted softshell outer fabric and a high wicking inner fabric. Whilst the membrane is technically waterproof with taped seams, the Kinetic Plus jacket is not designed to replace a true hardshell jacket in extreme conditions. Profelx has a hydrostatic head of 10,000mm with superb breathability and windproofing, thus, you get a jacket that will remain comfortable even under strenuous activity and keep out a lot more weather than your standard softshell jacket, and it will do all of this whilst weighing next to nothing.

What are the features?

Featuring a close fitting, stretch on hood that dispenses with adjustable drawcords and has the bonus of a laminated and stiffened peak to provide extra facial protection. Twin A line pockets and the main zip use YKK Aquaguard zips to make them as watertight as possible and the cuffs and hem are made stitch free for improved comfort. 

How does it fit?

Featuring a relatively long body and slim cut overall, the Kinetic will feel slimmer than your standard hardshell but roughly the same as your standard Rab softshell. The arms are a good length and provided you choose the correct size, there's enough room underneath for a baselayer and midweight midlayer. 

Where does it fit in the layering system?

The Kinetic Plus is designed to be worn in the same instances as a softshell, therefore it works best as an outer layer, however it can also be over-layered when static (i.e, slip an insulated jacket over the top when having lunch to stay nice and toasty). 

Summary

Although this isn't designed to replace a hardshell in extreme conditions, it does provide greater weather protection when you need the performance of a softshell with the waterproof capabilities of a hardshell. It's exceptionally stretchy, comfortable and breathable, making it one of the most versatile jackets in your kit cupboard.

Slim Fit: Slim fitting, sitting close to the body, great for showing of your guns and pecks.

Regular Fit: Neither slim nor oversized. Regular-fitting garments that are bang in the middle. The middle is good.

1Chest

Run the tape around the fullest part of your chest, the tape should be just below the arm pit and over the shoulder blades whilst horizontal to the floor.

2Waist

Measure around your natural waist as show in the diagram

3Inseam

Measure your inside leg from crotch to ankle blone keeping your leg straight: not as easy as it sounds, you could take a pair of trousers that you already own, that fit you well, and measure from the crotch to the bottom of the leg.

4Sleeve

This is a bit more tricky! Measure from the top of your spine (at the bottom of your neck) to your elbow and on the your wrist

5Arm

You should place the beginning of the measuring tape behind your shoulder, and feed it out following your arm making sure to pass both the elbow joint and the wrist, as pictured. You should take the measurement at the point where you would like the sleeve to end. This is usually just past your wrist.

Professional Opinion

This Jacket really blurs the line between waterproof and softshell.
However, in our experience, this jacket should be treated more as a softshell with extra weather protection, than as a really breathable waterproof. Great in the Summer and into the shoulders of the year, but you really can't beat a traditional hardshell for the best of British weather.

    Excellent fitting jacket - allows freedom of movement while keeping me covered. Material has a soft feel which is much nicer than a standard waterproof jacket. Definitely waterproof, water beads off well. Breathability seems good

    I have recently moved from the US to Scotland and my Northface Hyvent waterproof jacket failed me miserably. I researched the Rab jacket and Goretex Northface running jacket and reviews led me to decide on the Rab jacket. I could not be more pleased with this purchase. This jacket is great alone for hiking and as a top layer over my fleece jacket for when its cold. Performance of this jacket is top notch. Only thing I need to do is wear during a run, otherwise this jacket performs and meets all expectations.

  • I'm 5' 10" 84kg athletic build. Would I need a L or XL, and with those layers do you think it'll be toasty enough when moving slowish at high altitude?
    Question asked by Andy on Feb 4 2018 5:32PM
    Hi Andy, from the size of your measurements I would probably go for a large, however you'll get a more accurate size if you use the 'sizing information' tab just underneath the description of the Kinetic; this gives you an accurate size based on your chest, waist and arm length. In terms of warmth, it all depends how warm you are as a person. Many here at Trekitt would be absolutely fine with the layers you've got, however some others might be a little cold if they're a slimmer build. I'd say you're definitely in the right area of warmth, however I may pack something like an Arc'teryx Atom LT as a warmer midlayer option if it get's exceptionally cold. Regards, Harry.
