As well as this, the Pertex fabrication maximises the efficiency of insulation to keep you toasty and warm when temperatures drop. To keep you comfortable and warm, a 700 fill power P.U.R.E recycled hydrophobic down been used within the fabrication; it offers unbelievable insulation by trapping warm air inside the garment for maximum warmth at minimum weight. As well as this, the jacket features a combination of zoned micro and nano baffles to increase core warmth without inflating weight or bulk. Nikwax has also been used on the jacket to keep you insulated even in wet conditions.
To provide added protection, a hood can be used to shield your face when the weather takes a turn for the worse. As well as this, the hood features a stiffened peak which allows you to find a perfect fit. A relaxed fit is designed to be slim fitting but not too tight, it supplies comfortable coverage that moves with you and provides enough room for layering if you require it. The fit also ensures freedom of movement because your clothing choice should never inhibit your natural motion. A front zip exists for complete temperature control, it can be worn up to seal in the heat and zipped down to release an intolerable heat build-up. The drawcord adjustable hem allows you to cinch down the fit whilst elasticated cuffs help to seal in escaping heat. Zippered hand pockets can be used to store your essential items or keep your hands warm when temperatures drop plus, a chest pocket can be used to store valuable items. Completing the jacket is a stuff sack which allows you to pack down the jacket when it is not in use.

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.
