The versatile Rab Firewall jacket for all occasions

Winter wardrobes aren’t what they used to be. The idea of having different coats to walk the dog, endure the school run, go for a ‘5% chance of precipitation’ walk, meet friends for coffee, cycle, venture out when it’s blowing a hooley, walk to the pub or go hiking with friends is no longer the way to go. Perhaps it was never that extreme, but you take our point?

Whether it’s down to the more discerning consumer, lack of wardrobe space or that the majority are simply protecting their cash in these financially challenging times, it is the scaled-back wardrobe that is victorious in 2022, particularly when it comes to outerwear.

What this means is that your walking, hiking, mountaineering and cycling gear needs to be versatile. Yes, you’re right, we have a solution for this!

Enter the women's Rab Firewall jacket. The Rab Firewall jacket is popular with BCH Camping customers because it’s as versatile as it gets, and is fantastic value for money.

The Rab Firewall jacket for women

The Rab Firewall jacket is a high performance protective jacket that is fuss-free and the perfect choice for venturing out, whatever the weather. In the Rab Firewall jacket you are always prepared for anything!
Here are some benefits that make the Rab Firewall jacket so appealing.


It’s not all about walkers and hikers. If you’re a mountaineer or a cyclist, this jacket is also for you. It will also suit you perfectly for daily use because it isn’t cumbersome like some performance jackets. It’s super-comfy and quick to zip up or down.

The Rab Firewall jacket is a great performer in summer as well as winter. It can be worn over a wicking t-shirt as a waterproof layer, offering welcome breathability in warmer temperatures.

While Rab say that the Firewall jacket is best for climbing, mountaineering and hill walking, we know from customer feedback that it’s a great all-round, classic shell.

Waterproof and breathable

The Rab Firewall jacket will keep you dry in the very worst of conditions. Its 100% waterproof and impressively breathable outer is a 3-layer Pertex Shield fabric.

Pertex Shield fabrics are designed with waterproof, windproof and breathable membranes. They are also lightweight, soft and packable. The durable water repellent (DWR) finish of the outer fabric sheds rain, snow and sleet and supports the breathability.

There are 2-way fully venting pit zips that can be opened as little or as much as you like, using YKK AquaGuard zips. The vents enhance the breathability of the jacket by keeping the air flowing when you’re working hard but need to keep going.

Freedom of movement and comfort

The articulated sleeves are cleverly designed to allow you to raise your arm without the jacket riding up. The fabric is supple, soft and stretchy which makes it ideal for carrying a heavy pack. The extended cuffs are easy to adjust to create a seamless fit with your gloves in cold weather.
For added comfort, the dual-sided rear hem adjustment is activated in a single-handed motion using the hem drawcord.

Adjustable helmet-compatible hood

The 2-way adjustable helmet-compatible hood makes the Rab Firewall jacket the ideal choice for cycling, climbing and when tackling other challenging terrain. The hood has a protective, stiff peak that keeps rain off your face and allows easy movement of your head for much-needed visibility.

It takes an easy one-handed adjustment to roll the hood away using the concealed internal cord locks, which is particularly useful when using ropes.
