Rab Shadow Hoodie (2014)

£135.00

The Rab Shadow Hoodie is made from Polartec Windpro, which is four times more wind-resistant than traditional fleece, but it doesn’t have a membrane inside – and so retains enough air permeability to allow water vapour to escape, thus preventing condensation building up. This fabric is therefore ideal for windier conditions, in places that will still necessitate a waterproof jacket ...

Rab Double Pile (2012)

£60.00

A heavy fleece and therefore very warm. Double-pile fabric really traps the heat in. That also makes it bulky, however, and this certainly isn’t the kind of garment to tuck away in your pack for emergency use. Although it may not look like it, the face fabric has a water-repellent treatment which means that you can wear the top in ...

Rab Photon Hoodie

£100.00

This insulated jacket is a shining example of good, functional gear. The first thing you notice when you put it on is that it feels great to wear. The soft and light Pertex Microlight fabric and the Primaloft fill make the jacket really comfortable and warm when on, which is just the ticket on a cold, blustery crag! After you’ve ...

Rab Ghost

£80.00

This fleece mid layer makes use of Polartec Wind Pro stretch fabric, which has a little more wind resistance than more open-knit fabrics, so you don’t have to don a windproof quite as often. It also feels a little more durable and a little warmer than some other mid layers. Yet it is still very breathable, making it ideal for ...

Rab Vapour-Rise

£100.00

This soft shell jacket from Rab is a good fit, with plenty of adjustment at the cuffs and hem, and has a rustle-free hood that is a delight to wear. The soft Pertex outer and fleecy pile lining make a very comfortable combination. Beyond criticism in cooler, nastier conditions, and would win a winter test hands down. But it’s a ...
