The Maverick Jacket is a midweight rain jacket designed for all sorts of mountain activities.
Rab has been making jackets from very breathable eVent for years now, including the classic Drillium Jacket from which the Maverick is descended. But all of those previous eVent jackets used 3-layer construction, whereas the Maverick is one of the first jackets to use new 2.5-Layer eVent DVL (Direct Venting Lite) fabric. It offers the eVent breathability you love, in an even lighter-weight construction.
Like the Drillium before it, the Maverick features a roll-away, wire-brimmed hood, twin zippered pockets that sit well above a harness, and full YKK front zipper with an internal storm flap and rain drain. With 40 denier fabric and a total weight of 400 grams, the Maverick is a true all-arounder and a companion you'll be happy to have in any kind of precipitation.

In 1981, British mountaineer Robert “Rab” Carrington started making down jackets and sleeping bags in Sheffield, England. Inspired by the new style of lightweight alpine climbing which he helped pioneer, Rab made it his mission to make equipment that would withstand “the most extreme conditions in the world.”
Rab’s product line has expanded dramatically since then, but Rab’s commitment to functionality, durability, and value remains as strong as ever. At GearX.com, we are continually impressed by Rab’s superb knowledge of technical fabrics (they were the originators of Pertex) and attention to small yet crucial details like high-quality zippers. No matter which Rab product you choose, you can be sure that it will be a faithful companion in the mountains.
