    Rab Kinetic Plus Jacket

    So, the review of the Rab Kinetic Plus Jacket makes it look very interesting! How does the breathability (of 'in excess of 35,000cc/sqm/24hr’) compare to something like a Rab Vapour Rise Alpine/lite (whatever the light weight version is called!), which is the softshell I always seem to wear unless it is really hammering down? I would expect he vapour rise to be much more breathable, but offer much less protection, will be interesting to know what the reality is......

    As per your expectations The Kinetic plus is a waterproof vaguely dressed up as something else - and only very vaguely too! - VR stuff is proper soft shell.

    Thanks for the reply. Have you actually tried it? The review claims that breathability is only a little less than some windproofs, which is what sparked my interest! I note that breathability in windproofs can vary a great deal too, which doesn't help with the ambiguity. I suspect the only way to tell will be to try myself!
