Rab Women's Borealis Jacket

Size Chart

Rain Rain, Come On Down

The Rab Women’s Borealis jacket, crafted for the needs of climbers, is one of the lightest softshells available. It also offers exceptional breathability and stretch whether climbing, belaying, or waiting out the conditions. The front zip and chin guard seal the water out, while the hood fits under a helmet for a snug fit and lycra binding. The Napoleon chest pockets are ideal for use with a harness, and allow you to stuff it away, or keep the rain at bay, with the option of packing the whole jacket into its own pocket, making for an easy change-over when the weather lets up. Surprises at the crag don’t need to include the ever-changing weather conditions, and between the wind and the rain, you can feel confident on the wall with a jacket that protects you from it all.
