Im after a replacement for my Rab Phantom hoodie, the Shadow hoodie is on my list, but trying to find out what other jackets in same material is out there, and google is not being very helpfull.

In reply to Mikkel: Arc Teryx Fugitive. That's it as far as I can tell, shame as Wind Pro is great stuff
In reply to Mikkel: The Shadow is a great jacket, but I do still think the stitching is shonky around the wrist cuffs, I've had to do more fixing since the review period: http://www.ukclimbing.com/gear/review.php?id=2685 But beyond that, it's a very useful piece.

Same issue on the Phantom hoodie, the first one i had i send back because the stitching on the cuff pulled stright out, replacement did the same a few months later but kept it as its such a nice jacket.
In reply to Mikkel: I noted in the review that Outdoor Magic's test sample did the same - sounds like a design fault, although I'm pretty certain RAB told me they had virtually no returns!

In reply to TobyA:

I think design fault as well, a piece of fabric not made big enough or just poor sewing.
I have no idea what these bits are called in sewing terms but the piece folder around the edge then stitched on, the stitches didn't actually go into the fabric between the fold.

The arcteryx jacket looks nice, but can only find it in blue :(
In reply to Mikkel: What's wrong with blue? Surely you don't want black?! :-)

In reply to TobyA:

No i don't want black, why i was looking for other options, but i prefer black over blue.

Ohh and the Shadow hoodie is slate not black ;0)

It's windbloc as opposed to windpro, though...

In reply to Styx: Windbloc is quite different, better wind protection but much less breathable
