The New Spark is a men's waterproof jacket made from breathable Pertex Shield+ fabric with stretch for unrestricted mobility. It features a helmet-compatible hood with a wired peak, a YKK AquaGuard water resistant front zip with internal storm flap and rain drain and 2 large Napoleon pockets with water resistant zips and mesh lining for extra venting. Rab revised the spark jacket for spring 2016, mostly by changing the colours to a new lovely palette and shaving off whole 5g from the total garment weight!
The Spark Jacket is very suitable for summer alpine climbing and mountain walking and at just 310g (Size L) will even double as a shell for travel or running use. Fit is slim with long sleeves, geared towards active use.
Rab Spark Jacket Weight: 310g (New Spring 16 - Large)
Classic Rab fit with long sleeves, very generous hood and fairly slim body. If you are around 38" chest you can go with Small for very fitted jacket or Medium for more of a regular fit. The best thing is that sleeves will be long enough even if you are 6'1" so great choice for beanstalks like me!
Very good DWR coating and nice soft handle to the fabric. Although is doesn't feel very durable I used it for quite a bit and it still performs great without any excessive signs of wear or holes. Breathability is not as great as say eVent or Gore-Tex Pro jacket but for all intended purposes is more than adequate. Very pleased with it as an emergency rain shell for all mountain pursuit in summer and spring.
