Waterproofing and stunning breathability, combined with stretch, durability and a technical, mountain-ready cut. How? Rab have got their hands on Polartec NeoShell and made the Neo Guide, that's how.
NeoShell is a real "best of both worlds" fabric: totally waterproof, but air-permeable, soft and stretchy. In other words, it's all the best bits of hardshell, and all the best bits of softshell.
A jacket with extra tough patches on the high wear areas, a hood that'll take a helmet, and pockets that still let you in when you're in a harness (not forgetting a cut that lets you reach around freely) was always going to be just what the climber ordered, but make it out of NeoShell and it's just about perfect.
