The Rab Borealis Jacket is a lightweight, wind resistant and packable jacket with excellent breathability. Offers great fit, comfort and protection when you're on the move.

 Rab says:

Inspired by backcountry skiing in the likes of Lake Tahoe and Jackson Hole, the Borealis Tour Jacket is our lightest weight, hoodless softshell jacket, combining wind resistance, high breathability and a small pack size.

Made with lightweight Matrix™ single weave fabric with stretch, the Borealis Tour Jacket is designed for active use in varied conditions. UPF 50+ provides protection from the strong sun that might be encountered when backcountry skiing or sea cliff climbing.

Lightweight and packable, the Borealis Tour Jacket features lycra bound cuffs, so you can quickly pull it on and off at belays, and two zipped pockets. The left pocket doubles as an integrated stuff sack making it easy to stash in warmer moments and the ideal softshell for active mountain days.

Our Verdict

Rab's Borealis Tour Softshell Jacket is a light-weight, highly breathable windshell, designed to provide protection for fast-and-light mountain use.

The Borealis is quite a thin garment with an active fit so great for layering. The cuffs are also lycra bound which makes them easy to push up if you start to get too warm.

The jacket features 2 zipped chest pockets with the left one also doubling up as a stuff sack as it has a zip pull on both sides. Overall this lightweight jacket offers great fit, comfort and protection when you're on the move.
