RAIDLIGHT REVOLUTIV MP+ ULTRALIGHT: TRAIL RUNNING JACKET 25K/65K WITH ONLY 100GR.
RAIDLIGHT REVOLUTIV MP+ ULTRALIGHT REVIEW: TRAIL RUNNING JACKET 25K/65K WITH ONLY 100GR. Our TRAIL JACKETS section brings us today the launch of the new Raidlight Revolutiv MP+ Ultralight.
A ultralight jacket, with only 100 grams, but with the maximum possible protection. With an MP membrane like that of its sister Raidlight Responsive MP, but much improved, which reaches up to 25k of waterproofness and 65k of breathability. Incredible numbers for such a light jacket. Of course, at a price perhaps not accessible to all pockets.

RAIDLIGHT REVOLUTIV MP+ ULTRALIGHT REVIEW
Just a week ago we presented the Raidlight Responsiv 2.0 MP+, a jacket framed in the Responsiv range. As we already know, apart from the Responsiv range, we have the Activ and Revolutiv ranges in the brand. We can say that the Revolutiv range is the most “racer” range. They are usually products intended for competition.
So soon, we can say that Raidlight launches this jacket for runners looking to minimize weight in the race and add as much protection as possible. To date, the lightest and most protected raidlight was the Hyperlight MP with 20k/25k and only 95 grams of weight. That will just be faded with this Revolutiv.
Extremely high breathability. In long term testing, all testers have been extremely impressed with the lack of condensation and damp build up inside the jacket. In extended wet weather testing this jacket works hard to keep you dry. This jacket is 3 x more breathable than most other running waterproofs on the market. Combine this with one of the lightest weights of a performance waterproof jacket and you have a perfect combination. Waterproof, extremely breathable, ultralight weight and a small pack size.

RAIDLIGHT REVOLUTIV MP+ULTRALIGHT: HIGHLIGHTS
Raidlight takes a spectacular leap with this jacket. So far the lightest and most protected jacket on the market that we had tried may be the Salomon Slab Gore-Tex Shakedry Jacket, which with its 50k / 80k and its 156 grams of weight, but that its € 350 price can make it prohibitiba for many pockets.
Now Raidlight launches this Revolutiv MP+ Ultralight, which with 56 grams less weight and € 50 of discount, offers us 25k / 65k, perhaps something far from the Salomon membrane, but that will probably defend itself in most conditions. Thanks to its weight, it is very compressible, and can be stored in a bush that has in the hood. Remember that this Revolutiv does not have warm-up pockets like those of the Responsiv.
The zipper is complete and watertight of course, with fully sealed seams that guarantee tightness at all times. With small rubbers put thumbs and elastic cuffs will also allow us to protect ourselves from the cold in our hands.
The hood has a small visor, two twigs (rubbers) on the front and a rubber for adjustment on the back, in addition to incorporating a small pocket to store the jacket itself.
In the shoulder area and like the Responsiv, it brings some points / drawings of silicone to give greater durability to the area if we decide to put on the backpack, in this way it will also move less if it is somewhat loose. The jacket is more resistant to tears and rubbing to give it greater durability.
And what to say about its weight, only 100 grams, just what other windbreaks on the market weigh, but with much greater protection, we believe that it can be a great option for any type of ultra.
Now, we only have to try it, and check if this Raiglight Revolutiv MP can be one of the best jackets on the market. And especially if the price is adapted to the benefits it offers us. We will tell you everything here in TRAILRUNNINSPAIN.COM
