RAIDLIGHT RESPONSIV 2.0 MP+ REVIEW
After the success of the raidlight Top Extreme MP trail jacket since 2017, Raidlight surprises us with a name change, which comes to fit the new Raidlight ranges, in this case this jacket is framed in the Responsiv range, a range from which we have brought you technical analysis and reviews of its shoes, like the Responsiv Ultra, their 6-12-18-24L hydration vests or their clothes, like the short-sleeved T-shirt.
Raidlight offers three ranges in its sports equipment, Activ, Responsiv and Revolutiv, a range for each type of runner. Within the Responsiv range, Raidlight has decided to migrate the Raidlight Top Extreme MP jacket that already won our #oscardeltrail in 2019 In 2020 it launched the Raidlight Responsive MP (yellow bottom) that this year arrives improved as MP.

RAIDLIGHT RESPONSIV 2.0 MP+. CONCLUSION
Raidlight has improved the jacket in a very important way technically. Increasing the impemeability and breathability of the press to 20k/20k means matching the highest step on the market… with the exception of garments with Gore-tex shadedry membrane, which are today the top of it.
Now, the price of € 200 for this jacket greatly reduces what rivals of the top range ask us, located from € 250 onwards. And it does so in addition, with a weight of 190 grams and a carrying capacity in its own pocket that make it especially comfortable and easy to carry. Therefore, always candidate to be the first jacket that we put in the backpack for almost any outing. And that’s priceless…
Among its rivals, we can point out at the top of the frame the Arcteryx Shakedry insulated that provides in addition to the best membrane on the market an artificial insulator for those who have to run undercero, as well as the Salomon Goretex Shakedry with better mebrana but much higher price (€ 350), In prices € 150-200 significantly exceeds the best-selling Salonon Bonatti 2.5L in membrane and lightness, for only 30€ more.
Now, we only have to put it to the test, rolling it thoroughly for you, to see how it behaves in real conditions and how its durability goes, two key points in every jacket.
