Why We Like The Borealis Jacket

Tailored to meet the demands of big wall climbing, the Rab Men's Borealis Jacket steps to the plate as Rab's lightest softshell available, bringing along wind- and water-resistance, stretchy mobility, and high levels of breathability. Its lightweight Matrix 2-way stretch construction with DWR allows you to move nimbly upwards in unrestricted comfort while also shedding light precipitation in uncertain weather. The low-profile, under-helmet hood has a Lycra binding to secure your protection without compromising safety, as do the cuffs to cinch tight a snug barrier against the elements. Covering all the bases, Rab gave this alpine piece built-in UPF 50+ to protect you from damaging UV rays when you're on high and close to the sun, and designed it to pack down within its own chest pocket for easy storage.

Finally XS size!

Had been hoping you would release this in XS. Jacket is a perfect fit (1.70m, 60kg). Material is really comfortable. Ink colour is nice, but would buy again if you offered a more “hi-vis” shade in the smallest size.

Nice jacket construction and feel but only if one is built like Jim Stickman - even the forearms are too tight.

The best windproof light weight

The best windproof light weight shell ever! We use them for walking in all non wet weather where you need warmth created by wind proof, in rain it acts as a good mid layer under a waterproof. Recommend anyone walking has one, all year round! It is a snug fit, it works well snug, you dont want it flapping about.

Perfect alpine jacket

A super lightweight jacket great for climbing, keeps the wind off on a belay but isn’t too warm while climbing. The orange is a fantastic colour very eye catching and as always great quality.

Very pleased with the jacket.

Very pleased with the jacket. I wanted a wind proof, lightweight, close fitting jacket offering some rain protection. This is exactly what the Borealis offers. Its being used for dog walks, longer hikes and as very useful extra layer when on bike rides.

Superb

Bought for hikes. Super small and packable and as a sweaty mess the breathability is super helpful.
