Our review

A fantastically versatile mid or outer layer that adds far more function to your wardrobe than its feather weight would suggest

This super-lightweight Rab pullover isn’t waterproof or even fully windproof, so why would you need it? What’s more, why have we found ourselves regularly pulling it on for rides?

The answer is in its silky, stretchy fabric. Its non-membrane tight weave makes it a wonderfully lightweight, quick drying layer that protects you from the worst of the chill wind while letting just enough through to breathe fantastically well and stop condensation build-up.

On chilly hilltops we’ve even resorted to pulling the small hood up, which fits neatly under a helmet because it’s so thin. It keeps a chill wind from evaporating sweat soaked hair and easily pulls out of the way when not in use.
