What is the Vital Windshell?

As the name suggests the Vital Windshell provides instant protection from the wind when you need it most. It thrives in fast and light activities where weight and pack size are paramount. It weighs next to nothing and will take up no room in a biking, climbing, or running pack. A simple but vital piece of mountain clothing.

What is it made of?

The Vital Windshell is made using Hyperlite lightweight and windproof nylon outer that not only packs down exceptionally small but also offers reliable protection from the wind – which can be vital in rough conditions. It is then given a DWR coating (Durable Water Repellent) to help rain bead off the jacket. This does not make the jacket waterproof, and if you’re going out in changeable or wet conditions you’ll still need to take a hard shell jacket with you.

What are the features?

Starting from the top the Vital Windshell features an elasticated hood with stiffened peak and rear volume adjustment, so you can draw the hood in closer when the wind is howling. There is a YKK front zip with internal storm flap to help seal out the wind, and a snap closure that can be done up with the zip pulled down to add extra ventilation. 2 YKK hand pockets help store essential bit whilst the integrated internal stuffsack helps pack the jacket away so you can stash it til you need it. Part elasticated cuffs and a 1/2 hem drawcord help seal out the elements and reflective logos front and rear will help you to be seen at night.

How does it fit?

The Vital Windshell uses Rab’sRegular fit so you don’t get lots of excess material flapping around in the wind, but you also have room to fit a couple of extra layers on underneath it.

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.

    I bought this great lightweight windshell for hill running and when I need a bit of protection if the weather changes during a hike. Packs up in its own pocket and crams in a bum bag or pack for when you need it. The only complaint is the sleeves are a little long for me, but that might be a bonus on a chilly day! Neat hood with a peak stiffener so you can adjust it easily, small cape popper, so if it gets warm and you haven't the time to pack it away you can undo it and just wear it on your shoulders and two decent size zip pockets. All in all a very handy bit of kit.
