Rab Geon Jacket
The new Geon Jacket from Rab is a true all-mountain fleece. Built as a breathable mid-layer for high-energy cold-weather use, it is equally practical for walking in the hills and for easy-boost insulation during your post-climb downtime.
Constructed using Rab's polyester-based Thermic fabric, the Geon Jacket is a mid-weight stretch fleece that is designed to provide low-bulk layering insulation for cold-weather climbing, scrambling and hiking. The Thermic fabric combines inherent hydrophobic properties with outstanding breathability. It helps to move moisture through the layers and away from your skin for dry and comfortable wear. A brushed grid backer provides improved strength as well as comfort and warmth retention. With an athletic fit and active style, the Geon is the perfect mountain mid-layer as it does not restrict your movements. Featuring low-bulk flatlock seams, the jacket sits comfortably on your skin and reduces the risk of irritation from rubbing and chafing. This seam design allows you to layer the Rab Jacket comfortably between a base layer and shell. Lastly, two YKK zipped hand pockets provide plenty of secure storage whilst remaining discreet and harness-compatible and a full-length YKK front zip allows you full control over ventilation even on the move.
Rab's story began in 1981 in the attic of a small, terraced house in Sheffield where Rab Carrington made the first sleeping bag to bear his name. Hand-stitched and devised with his own ingenious eye, Rab's experience from years spent in the mountains was apparent in his designs, and soon there was popular demand both from friends and the growing local climbing community.
Things didn't stop there. Word soon spread, and the Sheffield attic became a factory floor, creating sleeping bags and jackets for customers far and wide. Now, decades later, those honest, hard-wearing designs can be found all over the world; wherever adventurous individuals face up to the elements. From Himalayan peaks to cold, crisp evenings around a campfire.
Over the past decade, Rab has continued to move from strength-to-strength, with increased popularity both in the UK and beyond and the introduction of iconic pieces such as the Microlight Alpine and Kinetic Plus. From far away frozen summits to the hills of the Peak District, you will find Rab products all over the world.
