A lightweight, versatile waterproof using Pertex Shield 2.5 Layer with recycled outer, a fluorocarbon free DWR, and a recycled membrane. Its recycled credentials plus a soft and comfortable handle, make this jacket ideal for hiking and hillwalking.
Whether you’re a weekend walker or a seasoned hiker, our Women's Downpour Eco Jacket is the trail-friendly choice. Built from recycled 2.5-layer Pertex® Revolve fabric with a fluorocarbon-free DWR treatment, it is our first ever mono-polymer waterproof jacket. It uses a polyester outer and membrane, which means that, in addition to being 100% recycled, it also has the future potential to be fully recycled at the end of its life. With waterproof performance of 20,000mm HH, alongside moisture-wicking breathability of 20,000g MVTR, its hill-walking practicality is equally advanced.
Adjustable hem and cuffs and a pair of deep-venting pit zips enable you to tweak the fit and ventilation as conditions demand. The hood with polymer peak is two-way adjustable for reliable visibility and the zipped handwarmer pockets are large enough for a map. Light and packable, with a weight of just 280g and an integrated stuff sack, this is the go-to jacket for hikers who demand sustainability as well as performance.
Rab's Womens Downpour Eco Jacket uses Pertex Shield Revolve which is recycled material with impressive green credentials. The outer fabric is also 100% recycled, hence the 'Eco' name. The 20,000 HH rating and 20,000 MVTR are pretty impressive on a jacket with this price tag. Features wise the jacket has a non-helmet compatible hood with flexible peak, which will benefit most people who will never use a helmet outdoors. The hood is adjustable along with a drawstring hem and Velcro cuffs to help you keep the weather out.
Overall the jacket uses tougher 50D fabric and more suited to general, all-round outdoor use. It isn't as lightweight as many others on the market but it is certainly more durable and provides amazing value for money with the set of features combined with the levels of waterproofing and breathability.
