The lightest and most breathable VR jacket using new re-engineered Vapour-rise technology to keep you comfortable when moving fast in the mountains.

Rab says

Up at the crack of dawn and out until dusk. As the lightest and most breathable piece in our re-engineered Vapour-Rise™ range, the VR Ridgeline Jacket is built for comfort when moving fast in the mountains.

The VR Ridgeline Jacket is designed to maximise airflow for energetic hikes, fast-paced scrambles and highly physical mountain recreation. The outer is built from lightweight Pertex® Quantum Air for the ideal active balance between air permeability and wind resistance. The softshell jacket also uses a body-mapped combination of fast-wicking brushed polyester insulation and mesh lining for extra comfort when going hard. Equipped with a DWR coating for additional weatherproofing, it features a collar which has been designed to fit comfortably with both climbing and ski helmets. It also features a single chest pocket for valuables, a lightweight full-length YKK® front zip, an adjustable hem and elasticated cuffs.

With its pared back feature set, hood-free design, fast-wicking Vapour-Rise™ construction and all-in weight of 261g, the VR Ridgeline Jacket is a versatile all-day layer for multi-sport mountain adventure.

Our Verdict

Rab's VR Ridgeline Jacket is lightest most stripped back jacket in the VR range. Providing a lightweight package that provides a simple shell for basic weather protection this jacket is all about keeping you cool no matter what you're doing. The use of VR Wicking and VR Airflow ensure this jacket is focused on providing maximum breathability with the technical ability to quickly and effectively wick moisture and help regulate temperature to an impressive level. No matter how hard you're going this jacket will perform brilliantly to keep you comfortable.

The Pertex Quantum Air fabric used on the outer provides exceptional breathability without forgetting the basic protection from the wind and rain, with the addition of a good DWR coating. The VR Ridgeline sheds weight. losing the hood and providing a limited feature set. This top is an excellent mid layer and still performs as an outer layer when going really fast and light in milder conditions. Excellent wicking, breathability, moisture management and temperature regulation for more intensive mountain activities.
