Topic - Softshell Vs vapour-rise

BallsOfSteel - on 02 Oct 2012
Soooo I have a bit of cash sat aside for some new kit for the coming season.

the last couple of years I have been climbing with a RAB Vapour-rise smock, and I love it. amazing bit of kit IMHO. so I'm seriously considering getting a Vapour-rise guide Jacket, can anyone comment on whether they do a smock version though, as I cant find one.
The thing is, in the same price bracket are softshell solutions such as the RAB baltoro etc.... and from the blurb, these seem to be more climbing orientated pieces. what kind of performance difference would I see between the two garments?

Basic question is, for Scottish winter, which is the better choice??

Cheers,

BOS
