/ Equivalent to the RAB Vapour Rise
I think Marmot do the Driclime, but does anyone have any experience/reviews of any others?
Not quite the same but the ME Ultratherm looks pretty good.
The Marmot Driclime is much lighter than the standard Vapour Rise. I have got both a Vapour Rise and the Lite version. I like both jackets, but find the "standard" Vapour Rise too warm for most of the year.
Lite if like me you run hot. A superb piece of kit. Slim fit, but that means a belay or shell jacket goes over the top np. It dries out really fast.
the old VR never fitted me, too tight across shoulder when body fit, however the montane
version v.similar in materials has a much better cut. Havent tried the new VR
- had a look on montane site, they dont make it anymore , cant see the equivalent !
ok thats the new one , mine has Pertex Equ. on it :-)
the Berghaus Tyree is similar. I have one and wear it all the time for climbing, biking and walking.
