Built from recycled 2.5-layer Pertex® Revolve fabric with a fluorocarbon-free DWR treatment, it is our first ever mono-polymer waterproof shell pant. It uses a polyester outer and membrane, which means that, in addition to being 100% recycled, it also has the future potential to be fully recycled at the end of its life.
It combines its impeccable eco-credentials with a variety of practical features, including a low-bulk elasticated waistband and knee-length zips so you can pull them on over walking boots when the weather takes a turn. Soft, lightweight and user-friendly, it’s the ideal packable solution for weekend ramblers and seasoned hikers in mild but changeable conditions.

- Rinse your washing machine out before use. This clears any leftover detergent and softeners that might damage the fabrics and coatings. Clean the detergent drawer and then run one or two rinse cycles.
- Make sure the pockets are empty.
- Close all zips, pockets, and Velcro fastenings.
- Use a non-biological liquid detergent, liquid pure soap, or a specifically formulated technical cleaner such as our newly formulated Rab Shell wash made in conjunction with local company Storm
- Place the wash solution in the detergent drawer and if you are reproofing at the same time (recommended) then add our Eco Proofer in the conditioner compartment.
- Machine Wash on a gentle, cool setting. Check the white care label, but 30ºC or 40ºC is usually ideal both for your jacket and the environment.
- After spinning at a low speed (400) hang the garment on a line to dry naturally.
- If the care label allows, tumble dry your garment for 20-30 minutes on a low heat setting which will activate the EcoProofer. If a tumble dryer is not available, iron on a medium heat ensuring you use a clean tea towel (or similar) as a barrier between the iron and garment.
- If you are in the field, you can also hand wash your jacket if you don't have access to a washing machine. Keep the water cool, detergent as gentle as possible, rinse it well, and give it plenty of time to dry, out of strong direct sunlight.
