Rab Phantom Pull-On Top
For something lightweight and easy to store away, the Rab Phantom Pull-On Top, is your running companion.
Being an extremely lightweight waterproof pull-on makes for an essential running piece to add to your wardrobe. If you're a mountain runner who worries about space, then consider this vibrant Phantom Pull-On Top. The Phantom Pull-On uses 7D Pertex Shield 2.5L fabric with DWR and added stretch, which then provides top quality materials, that will ensure you stay dry from the rain, and protected from the wind. Absolutely essential when you're climbing through wind and unpredictable weather climates. It is the Pertex Shield that gives it the lightweight feel, resulting in the tiny pack size of 12cmx6cm and weight of 90g. So when it comes to storing this top, you needn't worry so much about where it will go, and even more so, because of its integrated stuff sack, for when you're putting it away. The design of this top is made to provide comfort, and keep you snug at the same time, which is why the volume hood with micro-elasticated front section has been removed of any unnecessary eccess materials. So the hood stays close to your head, however still has that space you might need for a woolly hat or beanie during the colder climates. The YKK chest zip extends down to the sternum to provide good ventilation. Keeping the material to a minimum, as you may have realised, is important for Rab when building this Phantom Pull-On, which is why Rab have used half micro elasticated hem and cuffs, keeping the top in place, but also meaning they could leave out any excess toggles or draw cords, and ensuring a more comfortable and safe run. Providing visibility to the jacket using reflective branding, ensures safety during poorer weather conditions and low-light. All of these elements provide a comfortable, yet tight fit, as to allow fast movement through mountains.
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.
