Our VR Alpine Light Jacket is always in its element. With fast-wicking liner, breathable softshell and easy-vent chest pockets, it brings you all-day mountain dryness, however intense it gets.
As the middle of our three new Vapour-Rise™ layers, the VR Alpine Light Jacket strikes the perfect balance between insulation, breathability and protection. It uses a shell made from lightweight Pertex® Quantum Air, alongside a combination of VR Wicking and VR Airflow polyester linings to transport excess moisture away from the body. It then creates a thermoregulating ‘microclimate’ between the layers, which keeps the wearer warm as well as dry. In addition to a belay-friendly double-ended front zip, the VR Alpine Light Jacket features a pair of oversized zipped chest pockets for additional venting and a lightweight elasticated hood and cuffs to help keep the weight down to just 312g.
Our VR Alpine Light Jacket’s approach to insulation is built on two years of applied field testing with the Association of Mountaineering Instructors. Warm, dry and uniquely versatile, it is an all-weather mountain layer you need never take off.
