SKU: VR Guide Pant Mens Categories: , Brands: .


The Rab Vapour-rise Guide Pants are winter-weight softshell pants, designed to offer ultimate weather protection and breathability, using a 2-layer system unique to Rab®. If you are the adventurous type and want a trouser that performs impeccably whether it be from tackling a Scottish north face on one of our winter courses or climbing Mera and Island Peak, then the Rab Vapour-rise Guide Pant is a must. Due to the fantastic warmth to weight ratio and breathability the Rab Vapour-rise Guide Pants are a great pant for those cold winter bivi’s here in the Lake District and Scotland alike.

Developed exclusively by Rab® and Pertex®, Vapour-rise™ creates breathable, high wicking and quick drying performance clothing. The Vapour-rise Guide Pants use a durable Pertex® Equilibrium outer fabric and light-weight Matrix® DWS stretch panels at the knees and seat, to produce a versatile, winter-weight trouser.

With the combination of Pertex® Equilibrium® outer fabric, Matrix™ knees and seat and an inner comprised of wicking microlight fleece insulation the Rab Vapour-rise Guide Pants keep working at keeping you warm when damp but also have the advantage over other softshell trousers that they are extremely quick drying. The make up of soft materials also means the Rab Vapour-rise Guide Pants are comfortable under a hardshell pant for those days when the weather really takes that turn for the worst.

Technical features include YKK zips to add durable and reliable functionality and the brace attachment points keep the pants in place under your climbing harness when tackling those step north face pitches in winter.
