Rab Women's Borealis Hoody: Best Buy Award, Outdoor Gear Lab

"The Rab Borealis is a well-tailored light shell that delivers top-notch mobility and breathability. It's geared toward climbers that need something packable and fitted, but anyone active and mobile outdoors will appreciate this layer. Weighing barely over half a pound yet still able to provide a decent barrier against the elements, the Borealis impressed us across the board. It isn't going to keep you warm in severely cold or wet conditions, but the slim fit is perfect for layering under other pieces. And while it isn't particularly feature-heavy, all your bases are covered for most situations. Overall, this is a fantastic softshell and one we think the majority of climbers will find highly useful. Even better? It will only set you back $115 USD — a steal for a technical layer — so we enthusiastically award it a Best Buy award."

How to measure

  • Arm length – Measure arm length from neck to wrist fold along the top of the arm with the arm fully extended.
  • Chest – Measure horizontally around the fullest part of the chest.
  • Waist - Measure horizontally around the narrowest part of the waist, your natural waist, at the small of the back or where your body bends if you lean to the side.

While all Rab garments are sized to these measurements, you will find that the cut on jackets designed for use in more extreme environments will be slightly more generous in the expectation that these designs will be used with additional/thicker mid-layers. If you plan on using a jacket like this with fewer layers beneath it, please keep this in mind when selecting your size.

Regular Fit for Garments

Designed to be versatile Regular Fit garments are not closely fitted making them ideal for cross-seasonal use and multi-layering. Regular fit garments are contoured, with room for movement.

Slim Fit for Garments

Slim Fit garments are designed to be worn closer to the body or over layers such as baselayers and light mid-layers. Slim fit garments are close fitting for maximum performance when moving dynamically.

Expedition Fit for Garments

Expedition Fit garments are designed to be worn in colder conditions over more layers of clothing than our other fits and are oversized slightly to allow for this.
