The women's Downpour Plus Jacket is a light-weight, versatile, waterproof jacket - made using Pertex Shield, it’s ideal for everyday general use.

Rab says:

Made with Pertex Shield® 2.5 layer fabric with Dry Touch, the Downpour Plus Jacket has all the essential features for comfort and practicality. A helmet compatible hood, fleece lined chin guard, velcro adjustable cuffs, and hem drawcord help achieve a secure and comfortable fit.

With YKK® AquaGuard® front zip with internal storm flap, and 2 YKK® AquaGuard® zipped A-Line chest pockets to store the essentials, the left pocket doubles as integrated stuff sack, so it easily packs away. Ideal for passing showers at the crag, or walking in rolling hills, the Downpour Plus Jacket is the perfect lightweight waterproof layer to carry in case of unexpected rain.

The women's Rab Downpour Plus Jacket has had a few modifications with the features but still uses 2.5L Pertex Shield Fabric. You might have noticed the Pertex Shield+ is now just Pertex Shield - Pertex have re-branded the name but the fabric is exactly the same.

Feature wise the big changes have been with the hood and zips. You now get a helmet compatible hood with wired peak and the pit zips and front zips are now highly water resistant AquaGuard zips. This does mean Rab have removed the external storm flap on the front zip but they have kept the internal storm flap.

Overall the jacket actually looks tougher and more technical than before. It won't be as durable as heavier fabric, and there are jackets with a higher waterproofing available, but it's not a bad compromise for a jacket this light for under £130.
