The Latok Alpine Jacket is true mountain waterproof, offering complete protection from the elements in a breathable and durable eVent 3 layer fabric.
Packed with technical features, the Latok Alpine Jacket is designed with a clean face fabric to help shed snow and rain, and includes innovative YKK AquaGuard Escape Artist pit zips for increased breathability when climbing or skinning uphill. Climbing specific features include a helmet compatible hood with wired peak, YKK zips throughout and anti-snag Velcro adjustable cuffs.
The Latok Alpine Jacket has been a staple in the Rab waterproof range for many years now, and this current variation is the most advanced and technically featured yet, offering the ultimate protective package to climbers and mountaineers alike.
I have bought and used the Rab Latok Alpine Jacket in several hikes. I really like how breathable it is and the freedom of movement you get. It's very good at wind breaking and took 6+ hours of very heavy rain before it started letting it in, however it takes no time to get dry again and managed to keep me dry the next day as well. Maintaining the waterproofing was easy as with the eVent fabric you just throw the jacket in the wash with normal non biological detergent, hang it on a warm radiator and hey presto ready for your next hike! The Hood is also very good as the elastic in it will allow you to draw it in close to your face to keep the howling wind out.
Fantastic breathability!! Condensation build up was minimal for this sweaty person! And, after a quick break the jacket was dry inside. Very little rain when I wore this so I cannot comment on how waterproof it is, or how well the hood performs.
