The Rab Borealis Jacket is their lightest soft shell jacket using Matrix Single Weave fabric with two way stretch and a durable water repellent finish. Combining wind resistance and high levels of breathability with a very small pack size, the Borealis Jacket is designed to pack into the left side chest pocket, it is one of those mid-layer favourites that you wear till they fall apart, which probably isn’t that great for us or Rab because of its durability, although having a spare is always a good option. The hood is suitable for under helmet use and has a lycra binding for a contoured fit around the face. The Rab Borealis Jacket also features two YKK zipped pockets designed for harness use and are ideal for keeping essential items or guide books close to hand.
