New Kit: Rab Xiom jacket

A new addition to Rab’s "Shell range"

PERTEX is a lovely fabric to wear and it’s being used to great effect in the Xiom jacket from Rab.

It’s a new addition to Rab’s “Shell range” and its three layers of Pertex Shield membrane will easily keep out the wind and the rain.

A very cool feature on this jacket is a rain drain running down the zip.

It also has a helmet-compatible hood with a wired peak so it holds its shape.

It’s £190 but you’re getting one of the newest jackets on the market and Rab kit lasts for at least 10-years or more.

Colours are limited to Petal (for women) and Beluga BE (for men).
