The Rab Torque Jacket offers unrestricted movement, good levels of breathability and comfort which are all of great importance when you are heading into the hills and mountains for serious adventures.

Perfect for the likes of Cosmiques Arete, Rab's Torque jacket is designed for summer alpine climbing and active mountain use, offering complete freedom of movement and breathability.

Rab says

This lightweight and durable softshell jacket made with Matrix™ stretch fabric offers great mobility and superb breathability, with moderate weather protection. Technical features such as two YKK zipped napoleon chest pockets allow this jacket to go on at the start of the day, and stay on as long as you stay out.

With reinforced Ripstop overlays, the Torque Jacket is built to withstand rock and ice. Whether you’re tackling long alpine ridges or enjoying a day on the sea cliffs, this dynamic softshell moves with you to keep you comfortable at all times.

Our Verdict

RAB's Torque Softshell Jacket is made from Rab's own Matrix stretch fabric which we've used many times in other softshell garments - and we can report it really works, both in terms of the breathability and comfort experienced when wearing the garment but also in terms of keeping you dry during light showers and mizzle.

Highly stretchy, it's really comfortable to wear and in the scheme of things pretty lightweight. The Torque jacket has been updated and now features reinforced hips as well as on the hood and elbows, to protect against rucksack abrasion. It still features two large external chest pockets which are set above where a rucksack hipbelt or climbing harness would sit, to make sure the pockets are easily accessible.

The front cordlocks are now concealed inside the jacket which is ideal is great if you get sick of being hit in the face with them when the wind starts to pick up.

Overall the new and improved Torque jacket offers great protection for a range of pursuits.
