Topic - Using a windproof with a RAB V.R. Guide jacket

jayferg76 on 21 Feb 2013
At the moment, i use a RAB V.R. Guide jacket in the winter, and carry a Pac-lite jacket to throw on when it starts throwing it down. The RAB is fine in lighter rain and snow, but takes a while to dry out when it eventually wets out.
I was thinking of getting a RAB Alpine windshell for the summer, and started wandering if i put that over the Guide and regularly reproof the DWR on both, would it act a bit like a Paramo jacket so i can dispense with the waterproof, and give me a more flexible system.
This is purely for walking, (as i suffer from knocking knee syndrome if i try climbing).

On a similar note, my Generator jacket is due another wash, and it doesn't bead water to well now. Can i use the same Nikwax on it that i use on my waterproof?

Your advice is much appreciated.
