Ideal for a wide range of mountain activities, the Vital Windshell Hoody is a lightweight hooded jacket, that offers instant protection from the wind when the weather turns.

Rab says

Made with a durable Hyperlite™ windproof outer, the Vital Windshell Hoody is a simple but essential piece of mountain clothing, providing extra protection as you approach a summit, or any exposed position. Weighing just 160g, it doesn’t compromise on features, including elasticated hood with stiffened peak and rear volume adjustment, so it stays in place even in strong winds. Featuring two YKK® hand pockets, a YKK® front zip with internal storm flap, part elasticated cuffs, and half hem drawcord, the fit can be adjusted for additional protection. An integrated internal stuffsack ensures it takes up minimal space in your pack.

Offering protection when you need it, the Vital Windshell Hoody is a key piece for anyone looking to reduce weight while moving quickly through the mountains.

Our Verdict

Rab's Vital Windshell Hoody is a lightweight wind-shirt that provides high levels of weather protection for a great price. With an RRP of only £49.99 it makes it a lot cheaper than some of it's rivals currently on the market.

The Vital Windshell Hoody has pretty much replaced Rab's Windveil Jacket. By swapping the Pertex Microlight fabric for Rab's own Hyperlite fabric, it saves on costs while still keeping the jacket at a lightweight 140g (size medium).

The jacket hasn't skimped on features either as you still get everything you would want from a jacket of this type. I won't list them all but we particularly like the full zip venting control popper that provides you with a variety of ways to regulate your core temperature when required.

Overall this lightweight and super packable jacket would be ideal for summer days on the mountain where protection from the cooling wind is needed without any compromise of breathability.
