Rab Khroma Kinetic Jacket Grabs Award From Backcountry Magazine

September 17, 2020

Celebrated Touring Shell Honored With Editor’s Choice Selection

Louisville, CO (September 2020) – Rab, an industry leader in merging the development of quality outdoor gear and apparel with sustainability and environmental awareness, added another accolade today as Backcountry Magazine honored the company’s Khroma Kinetic Jacket with an Editor’s Choice award ahead of the 2020-21 winter season.

With its ‘soft’ hardshell Proflex™ construction, the Khroma Kinetic Jacket is Rab’s most flexible and breathable waterproof ski jacket. Its new 20D Proflex™ fabric comprises three layers – a wicking polyester inner, an expanded PTFE core and a woven polyamide/elastane outer with a DWR coating – which delivers outstanding high-energy moisture management and impenetrable waterproofing.

The Khroma Kinetic Jacket is a true backcountry shell for untracked powder and tough, technical ascents.

“The Rab Khroma Kinetic Jacket is a lightweight, breathable touring shell that’s easy to wear all day. The 20k waterproof-rated fabric is very breathable, soft to the touch, and offers great range of motion,” Backcountry Magazine’s tester reported. “The oversized mesh chest pockets are well-designed and also serve as vents. Overall, it’s a great alternative to 3-layer touring pieces for those who are looking for more breathability and versatility.”

 The Khroma Kinetic Jacket is currently available online.

“After years of making clothing worn by backcountry skiers, we are excited to be launching a dedicated range with features and fit specifically tailored for the backcountry skier,” said Jon Frederick, US Country Manager at Rab. “We’re honored by this award from Backcountry, and look forward to seeing the Khroma Kinetic in the mountains once the snow starts to fall again.”
