The RAB Khroma Cirque Jacket is a robust jacket with a breathable 3-layer GORE-TEX construction that is wind and waterproof. The 3-layer construction of the Khroma Cirque Jacket means that the outer fabric, the GORE-TEX-membrane, and the liner are all laminated together. This very durable construction gives the least possible friction on the GORE-TEX-membrane and ensures the Khroma Cirque Jacket can be loaded with ease.
Such as with your backpack or when you scrape the jacket against a rock wall. Because of the 3-layer construction of the Khroma Cirque Jacket, the jacket is relatively low in weight.
