The Men's Downpour Jacket is a lightweight waterproof outer layer, ideal for general everyday use.
Made with Pertex Shield+ 2.5 layer fabric with Dry Touch, this Jacket comes with all the essential features for comfort and practicality, including pit zips, adjustable hood and cuffs as well as zippered pockets with storm flaps.
The Downpour packs down into its own left-hand pocket, making it the perfect lightweight protection layer to carry with you in case of unexpected rain.
Rab's Downpour Jacket is a cheap and cheerful waterproof with everything needed for everyday use. You've got your fully adjustable hood with a flexible polymer peak to keep the weather at bay, two full length pit zips for ventilation, adjustable cuffs and hem drawcord to get a tailored fit and two generous sized zipped pockets, with one doubling as an integrated stuff sack.
Waterproof, light weight and small pack size, the important 3 ticked. It won't be a 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 £100.
