Rab Borealis Softshell Jacket
Availability: In stock
Inspired by the demands of big wall climbing, the Borealis Jacket is our lightest softshell, combining wind resistance, high breathability and a small packsize. The perfect climber’s piece, it’s as at home on a windy Derbyshire crag as it is high up the wall in Yosemite
The Borealis Jacket is made with lightweight and stretchy Matrix™ fabric, allowing complete freedom of movement. Designed for use on long multi-pitch routes where the weather can be variable, UPF 50+ protects from the sun, while features like the YKK front zip with chin guard and half hem drawcord offer adaptability and shelter from the wind as conditions vary. The two YKK® zipped, mesh-lined Napoleon chest pockets ensure access to the essentials when wearing a harness.
Our lightest softshell jacket, the Borealis Jacket is wind resistant and highly breathable. Whether your objective is The Nose, the Nutcracker, or a day cragging in the valley, it does everything you need it to, in one tiny package.
