Rab Kinetic Alpine 2.0 Jacket
The Rab Kinetic Alpine 2.0 Jacket features updated materials and an improved fit to make this classic even better. The stretchiness of a softshell and the waterproof capabilities of a hardshell creates a jacket halfway 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. Rab have cleverly increased the durability of the fabric by reinforcing the high wear areas with a woven stretch polyamide. Like a traditional softshell, the jacket offers exceptional next-to-skin comfort as well as wicking properties.
Constructed using Rab's own Proflex fabric, the Kinetic 2.0 is recycled as well as stretchy, breathable, lightweight and 100% waterproof making it ideal for a wide range of outdoor activities. The inside of the jacket features a soft knitted fabric that sits next to the skin for exceptional comfort whilst a woven stretch polyamide reinforcement high wear areas such as the shoulders, arms and hood. The hood features a stiffened peak to ensure that the worst of the rain is kept off of your face and is fully compatible with a helmet. The hood has front and rear adjusters allowing you to customise the hood to suit your needs. A 2-way YKK aquaguard front zip allows you to control airflow as well as providing easy access to a climbing harness. Providing extra protection from the elements is an adjustable hem and adjustable cuffs that work to seal out wind chill. Two A-line pockets with YKK aquaguard zips offer easy access to your essentials even when wearing a harness or pack hipbelt. These zipped pockets ensure that your belongings stay safe and secure no matter the activity. Now with a regular fit, the Rab Kinetic Alpine Jacket can easily be layered up with additional layers underneath it without creating excess material that flaps around in the wind.
Rab's story began in 1981 in the attic of a small, terraced house in Sheffield where Rab Carrington made the first sleeping bag to bear his name. Hand-stitched and devised with his own ingenious eye, Rab's experience from years spent in the mountains was apparent in his designs, and soon there was popular demand both from friends and the growing local climbing community.
Things didn't stop there. Word soon spread, and the Sheffield attic became a factory floor, creating sleeping bags and jackets for customers far and wide. Now, decades later, those honest, hard-wearing designs can be found all over the world; wherever adventurous individuals face up to the elements. From Himalayan peaks to cold, crisp evenings around a campfire.
Over the past decade, Rab has continued to move from strength-to-strength, with increased popularity both in the UK and beyond and the introduction of iconic pieces such as the Microlight Alpine and Kinetic Plus. From far away frozen summits to the hills of the Peak District, you will find Rab products all over the world.
