Waterproof softshell?? Yes, it is! The Rab Kinetic 2.0 jacket combines the breathability of a softshell with the waterproof capacity of a hardshell, the best of both worlds! This jacket is comfortable with just enough stretch to allow one to move freely during activities such as hiking, cross country skiing or chasing down a city bus. The soft feel of the jacket is comfortable to wear over a T-shirt, or multiple baselayers, and is small/lightweight enough to stash in a pack when the sun comes out.

Who it’s for:

Someone who wants a lightweight, breathable, waterproof softshell that can adapt to the elements, whether it be raining, snowing, windy, or cold and sunny.
