Don't just take our word for it...

I bought the Kinetic Plus and I love the versatility that it offers. The lightweight, durable material makes it a great piece for any season or any activity. I'd highly recommend this jacket to any outdoor enthusiast!

Picked this up last year and wasn't 100% sure if I'd use it or if it was a gimmick. Turns out to be my most used jacket now; replaced my super light windproof and heavy waterproof jackets with one light-weight package.

All of the other shells I own have that crinkly plastic feel to them, but my Kinetic Plus wears as comfortable as my favourite hoody ... I would highly recommend picking one up for casual weather protection or to add to your backpacking/climbing armoury. Best Shell ever!

Stellar jacket. Amazing breathability, totally waterproof and the range of motion you get with the jacket is amazing! Perfect climbing jacket. Perfect everything jacket.

Chase M

So far so good. Lightweight but seems to be efficient - keeps rain out but no condensation inside after moving at fast pace. Good windproof too. Tested in both torrential rain and high winds.

Love this jacket. I try to minimise my wardrobe by only having pieces that are multifunctional and high quality. This jacket hits both those marks! Not only is it a great rain shell, I can wear it as a softshell even when it isn't raining! Plus, it fits well and I can still layer my micro down jacket underneath.

This jacket has been perfect for both trail running and biking. It is very comfortable and it breaths really well when I am sweating. I love that is very lightweight. I would recommend this jacket over any other outdoor waterproof jacket especially if it is worn during exercise.

Kelsey R

Great all conditions jacket, barring full torrential rain. Total movement, never binds up. Longer tail works well under a harness, and the hood is a snug fit over a helmet and stays in place. Also weighs about 11 ounces.... Goes everywhere!

I thought this was overhyped on the website, but it more than lived up to expectations. It’s my default coat now three seasons.

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 Plus 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.

Take it anywhere

With the men’s jacket weighing in at 320g and the women’s at 270g, the Kinetic Plus is both lightweight and packable. Designed to handle everything from light drizzle to outright wet conditions, the few times you’ve not got this jacket on its easy to stash in your pack or clip to your harness

Put it on. Keep it on.

Wind, rain or shine - the soft and highly breathable nature of the Kinetic Plus will keep you comfortable all day long. To the touch this jacket feels like a softshell, however, don’t be deceived, with a hydrostatic head (waterproof measurement) of 10,000mm you can be sure of protection when the weather turns.

Reach. React. Move.

Whether you are taking on a strenuous scramble or caught in a rain shower mid-climb, the stretchy and exceptionally flexible nature of the Kinetic Plus means your movement will never be restricted. Designed to manage moisture and quickly wick any sweat, this jacket will keep you dry, even when you’re working hard.

I have been wearing the Kinetic Plus since August 2016. My first impressions were that it would be a comfortable, lightweight summer waterproof. I thought it would be perfect for summer drizzle and the odd shower - the kind of jacket to keep in my bag on those days where I didn’t expect heavy rain but didn’t want to head out into the mountains without a waterproof.

I’m very pleased to report that the Kinetic Plus has exceeded my expectations in every way...

For a very long time I have been searching for the perfect jacket. Now, before this gets too carried away, allow me to clarify exactly what that is. This holy grail of outer layers has always gone something like this in my fantasies: It’s waterproof, windproof, has a (very) generous amount of mechanical stretch, a slim and active fit, looks good enough on to wear around town but doesn’t skimp on mountain function.

Well I’m not sure if it was the Gods of Old taking pity, or simply the fact that I was clearly not alone in wishing such a jacket existed, but the good folks in the design department of Rab® have answered my prayers.
