Rab Men's Borealis Jacket

Size Chart

Big Wall Protection in a Small Package  

The conditions on your big wall project aren't always breezy and beautiful, which is why Rab created the Borealis Climbing Jacket. As Rab's lightest softshell, the highly breathable Borealis offers protection from raging winds and light rain and packs into its own pocket so you never need to leave the ground without it. The super stretchy Matrix™ fabric won't restrict your climbing or belaying, and when the sun is blasting, the UPF 50+ will keep you protected from harmful rays. Add a helmet-compatible hood, adjustable hem, and two chest pockets that won't interfere with your harness and you're dressed for big wall success.
