- Montane Dyno vs Rab Vapour Rise Lite Alpine
USe a Rab Vapour Rise all winter; in fact I pretty much live in mine from October to April. But… I’m based in Calgary and so winter is -10 and below; even then I find just a vapour rise and a baselayer is pretty much all I need when I’m doing active sports (xc skiing etc). I like it but think it’d be pretty warm for cycling in the UK. Very breathable. The RAB cut fits me but it isn’t for everyone (long arms / narrow torso)Posted 5 years agospeed12Member
The Rab VR stuff has a brushed lining in it so gives a wee bit of insulation (not much in the Lite, but it is there), whereas the Dyno is just plain Pertex Equilibrium. I love my Dyno and reckon it’s the perfect biking softshell – really breathable as it’s non-membrane and because it is just a shell, you can throw it on over whatever else you have and you have weather protection, whereas the VR stuff means you are adding another (albleit small) insulation layer. I suppose it depends if you run hot (like I do) or cold. But the Dyno is certainly a good shout!Posted 5 years ago
