New for 2013! Looking for a true 3-season "do everything" soft shell? The Rab Women’s Solar Jacket is so lightweight, stretchy and comfortable you're going to want to wear it on every backcountry excursion you take.
The Women’s Solar Jacket is constructed from a mix of Matrix double weave and single fabrics specifically chosen for their unique properties in wind protection, durability and stretch. Double weave is used in the shoulders and upper sleeves where heavy wear and tear is anticipated from pack straps and climbing slings, while the Matrix single weave is used throughout the body of the Women’ Solar Jacket for excellent breathability and overall lightweight design. Matrix fabrics offer just the right amount of stretch to allow the wearer to twist, reach and climb without restriction. The abrasion-resistant qualities hold up to rough granite, desert sandstone and unmaintained, wooded trails.
An attached, adjustable hood is designed to fit under a helmet and can be cinched down to fit around the face in breezy conditions. A full front zipper with internal storm flap and chin guard offer increased weather protection and the drop tailed hem offers full coverage and can easily be tucked in if the Solar is worn as a mid-layer piece. Two zippered hand warmer pockets stow small items, while thumb loops increase comfort on chilly morning ascents or moonlight hikes.
Available in your choice of color and size, the Rab Women’s Solar Jacket offers a slim fit that can accommodate low-profile base layers.
