Kinetic Alpine Jacket - Men's (Fall 2020)
Softshell feel and stretch with alpine hardshell protection
A breakthrough in technology, the Kinetic Alpine Jacket will change the way you dress for the mountains. This fully waterproof, highly breathable and stretchy jacket is a radical re-approach to protective yet comfortable clothing systems. Perfectly combining the soft, flexible nature of a softshell with the protection and durability of a hardshell, the Kinetic Alpine is made from Rab’s own Proflex™. Contouring to your body shape, it wicks away any sweat generated on steep ground, making it easy to forget you are wearing a waterproof until the showers roll in.
Honed for the alpinist, particular attention has been paid to the features, ensuring it has everything needed for long days in the mountains. Reinforced ceramic print overlays in high wear areas removes the need for bulky patches, increasing durability without hindering stretch. While a helmet-compatible hood, YKK AquaGuard zips, fully taped seams, adjustable cuffs and hem ensure high functionality for the mountains. Light and highly packable, a small stuff sack aids easy storage in a pack or clipped to harness.

Proflex™: A breakthrough in fabric technology
Developed to perfectly combine all the benefits of a softshell with the protection of a hardshell, inspiration for the Kinetic came directly from the fabric it's made from - Rab's own Proflex. Constructed from a highly flexible hydrophilic membrane positioned between two high gauge, knitted layers, the inner quickly wicks sweat and moisture while the outer protects you from the elements.
