WINNER - Win a Rab Kinetic Alpine 2.0 Competition



Built to help you pare back your kit on remote multi-day expeditions, our Kinetic Alpine 2.0 jacket is the perfect all-round waterproof shell for hikers, climbers and mountaineers. The recycled Stretch Knit Proflex™ fabric offers exceptional breathability of 35,000g MVTR thanks to it's highly breathable waterproof membrane and a fast-wicking backer to shift moisture fast during high-energy ascents. It also uses Stretch Nylon Woven Proflex™ panels in the hip, arm, shoulders and hood to cope with the abrasion and exposure of tough, technical climbs.

Built to combine hardshell protection with softshell comfort, the inherent stretch of the fabric enables a closer cut than a traditional waterproof jacket making it the ideal technical shell for mountaineers, climbers and hikers.

Its flexible dual-fabric construction is combined with a range of high-spec features for all-day dryness, comfort and mobility. These include a helmet-compatible hood, water-resistant AquaGuard zips, large elevated pockets to stay clear of the harness zone and easy adjustment at the hood, hem and cuffs.

Tough but flexible, waterproof but breathable, this is the ultimate 'soft' hardshell for committed alpine adventure.

Last year 34% of our fabrics contained recycled content, we are proud to have grown this number for our 2021 collections including the main fabric on the Kinetic Alpine 2.0. Not only have we increased our recycled fabric in 2021, we have also been verified as a Climate Neutral Company, started our ascent to Net Zero by 2030 and have just published our first Sustainability Report.

How do we know if RAB will actually send any prizes out? They didn't with the Wildest Bivi competition so I assume they won't with this one either.

Don't know what the story was with the bivvy competition but I've won a jacket from Rab through UKC before which they definitely followed through on (and actually let me swap the intended prize for a different item because I already had a similar one).

I have also won a Rab jacket through UKC so no reason to doubt
