Attention all backcountry lovers! If you love the ski up as much as the ski down, this is the competition for you. Our favourite British technical clothing brand Rab is giving one lucky reader the chance to win these awesome Kinetic Jackets and Pants from its touring-specific Khroma collection.
Designed for backcountry skiers looking for waterproof protection and max breathability, the Khroma Kinetic Jacket (£340) – available in men’s and women’s versions – is built with Rab’s own Proflex fabric, which is super light, stretchy and highly breathable, and offers the protection of a hardshell with the comfort of a softshell.
“Proflex fabric shrugs off the wettest and wildest weather with ease, yet it breathes really well,” says FL backcountry editor Martin, who put the Kinetic combo through its paces last season.
You get loads of backcountry-friendly specs too, including a helmet-compatible hood, sleeve articulation for freedom of movement, arms vents for dumping heat on sweaty climbs, and several roomy pockets for storing snacks/essentials.
Pair the jacket with the men’s/women’s Khroma Kinetic Pants (£285), made with the same top-spec Proflex material, with excellent stretch and knee articulation for kick turns on steep terrain and bootpacks. You can dump heat quickly through the zipped thigh vents, and reinforced crampon patches and lower hem areas means they’re mega durable, too.
Need some additions to your layering system? Rab are also throwing in a Xenair Alpine Light Jacket (£190), a synthetic insulated jacket made with PrimaLoft Gold Active+ insulation to hold warmth when you’re static and allow airflow as soon as output increases. Plus an Ascendor Light Pull-On (£80), a 94% recycled fleece that regulates your temperature and wicks sweat quickly.
What a haul! Enter now and it could all be yours…
