UOG TOP PICK - Rab Borealis Softshell Jacket - We've singled out Rab's Borealis Softshell Jacket as one of our top recommendations because it provides excellent value for money, coming in as the cheapest softshell we offer. A soft and stretchy jacket that provides a good level of protection from the wind and rain for such a lightweight piece. 

The Women's 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

The Borealis Jacket is made with lightweight and stretchy Matrix™ fabric, allowing complete freedom of movement. Designed for use on long multi-pitch routes where the weather can be variable, UPF 50+ protects from the sun, while features like the YKK front zip with chin guard and half hem drawcord offer adaptability and shelter from the wind as conditions vary. The two YKK® zipped, mesh-lined Napoleon chest pockets ensure access to the essentials when wearing a harness.

Our lightest softshell jacket, the Borealis Jacket is wind resistant and highly breathable. Whether your objective is The Nose, the Nutcracker, or a day cragging in the valley, it does everything you need it to, in one tiny package.

Our Verdict

The women's Rab Borealis Jacket is a light-weight, highly breathable windshell, designed to provide protection for fast-and-light mountain use. It replaces the older Boreas and Ventus garments, with it's updated features and improved DWR.

The Borealis is quite a thin garment so great for layering. The hood is the low profile type with a lycra binding that fits nicely around the face and under a helmet. 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.
