Comfort, weight and durability is the name of the game when brands are designing ski jackets and pants suited for ski touring. And this is certainly the case for the all-new Khroma Kinetic jacket and pants – a ski touring outerwear system that’s made from the stretchy, durable and waterproof Proflex fabric to create a package that’s comfortable to wear through big days in the backcountry.

Rab Khroma Kinetic Ski Jacket & Pants Build
This Proflex fabric, which features in both the Khroma Kinetic jacket and pants, offers a stretchy feel thanks to the elastane-infused construction. You can certainly feel this stretch when you’ve got the jacket and pants on; something you’ll appreciate when you’re reaching high while boot packing or traversing alpine terrain.
“The stretch doesn’t come at the loss of durability, either”
The stretch doesn’t come at the loss of durability, either. The Proflex fabric is packing a 20-denier woven face fabric that’ll be capable of shrugging off abrasion from rocks, ski edges, or any other object you manage to rub yourself up against as you wind your way up towards the summit.
Rab has built in an extremely tough and durable kick patch on the inner of the cuff on the Khroma Kinetic Pants. This bit of tough fabric will help extend the life of the pants even after years of being cut up but ski edges, buckles and boot crampons.
