The Rab Downpour Plus Jacket is a light-weight, versatile, waterproof jacket - made using Pertex Shield, it’s ideal for everyday general use.

Description  Features

Made with Pertex Shield® 2.5 layer fabric with Dry Touch, the Downpour Plus Jacket has all the essential features for comfort and practicality. A helmet compatible hood, fleece lined chin guard, velcro adjustable cuffs, and hem drawcord help achieve a secure and comfortable fit.

With YKK® AquaGuard® front zip with internal storm flap, and 2 YKK® AquaGuard® zipped A-Line chest pockets to store the essentials, the left pocket doubles as integrated stuff sack, so it easily packs away. Ideal for passing showers at the crag, or walking in rolling hills, the Downpour Plus Jacket is the perfect lightweight waterproof layer to carry in case of unexpected rain.

 
  • Pertex Shield® 2.5 layer fabric
  • Helmet compatible hood, wired peak, roll down anti-snag hook and loop tab
  • Fleece lined chin guard
  • YKK® AquaGuard® front zip with internal storm flap
  • YKK® AquaGuard® pit zips
  • 2 YKK® AquaGuard® zipped, A-Line pockets. Left pocket doubles as integrated stuff sack
  • Hook and loop adjustable cuffs
  • Hem drawcord

Rab's Downpour Plus Jacket has had a few modifications with the features but still uses 2.5L Pertex Shield Fabric. You might have noticed the Pertex Shield+ is now just Pertex Shield - Pertex have re-branded the name but the fabric is exactly the same.

Feature wise the big changes have been with the hood and zips. You now get a helmet compatible hood with wired peak and the pit zips and front zips are now highly water resistant AquaGuard zips. This does mean Rab have removed the external storm flap on the front zip but they have kept the internal storm flap.

Overall the jacket actually looks tougher and more technical than before. It won't be as durable as heavier fabric, and there are jackets with a higher waterproofing available, but it's not a bad compromise for a jacket this light for under £130.

UK Orders

We aim to ship all orders placed before 3pm Monday to Friday, on the same day. Free shipping is offered for UK Orders over £15 order value. The form of shipping will be at our discretion and will be at the most cost effective service. For most parcels this will be Royal Mail Second Class Post, the timescale for delivery is not guaranteed but Royal Mail aim to deliver second class post in 3-4 working days. Some parcels may require a signature.

Faster Tracked Services

Faster shipping options can be purchased at the checkout - see the drop down menu, First Class post is available, as is Next Working Day Delivery. We can arrange Next Day Delivery for a Saturday (when the order is placed on Friday) - call us for charges on an individual basis (01740 661467).

EU Orders

We aim to ship all orders placed before 3pm the same day. The default shipping is 'Standard Delivery'. This is an airmail service which does not offer tracking but is very reliable. We have learned from experience that transit times for non-UK orders can be very unpredictable. To geographically close countries in Europe the times are generally up to 4-5 days but can sometimes take a lot longer - we don't know why.

So, for EU Orders over £15 in value we offer FREE delivery, but the service time is unpredictable. If you need your order by a specific date you can opt for a faster service at the checkout.

Faster Tracked Services

Faster tracked shipping options can be purchased at the checkout - see the drop down menu on the checkout page for options. Typically the service we can offer is 2,3 or 4 working days, if you require a faster delivery than is showing on the drop down menu please contact us at info@worldbackpacker.co.uk as we may be able to help.

Rest of World Orders

We aim to ship all orders placed before 3pm the same day. The default shipping charge is 'Standard Delivery'. This is an airmail service which does not offer tracking but is very reliable. We have learned from experience that transit times for non-UK orders can be very unpredictable. To geographically close countries in the times are generally up to 4-5 days but can take a lot longer - we don't know why. Countries farther afield generally take longer but the spread of transit times is amazing, we have been notified of parcels arriving in Australia after 3 days and others taking a month and (rarely) longer than this.

So, while the shipping options for ROW are quite cheap the service time is unpredictable.
