Constructed using Pertex Shield Fabric technology, the Valiance provides protection against the wind and rain whilst remaining comfortable and lightweight. The waterproof and windproof nature of the fabric ensures complete protection against harsh weather by preventing cold and wet weather entry. Pertex encourages rapid moisture management so you can remain dry on the inside as well as the outside, it works to disperse moisture over a broad area for fast evaporation, keeping you dry and comfortable at all times. Offering superior insulating fabrics, Pertex maintains loft without adding bulk and ensures optimal thermal efficiency to keep the body's core temperature stabilised at all times. A Duck Down has been used within the fabrication; it offers unbelievable insulation by trapping warm air inside the garment for maximum warmth at minimum weight. To keep you comfortable and warm, a Goose Down has been used within the fabrication; it offers unbelievable insulation by trapping warm air inside the garment for maximum warmth at minimum weight.

This ensures that our entire down supply chain can be traced so consumers can be confident that all down and feathers used in Rab products adhere to the highest possible animal welfare and safety standards. As well as this, the bonded box-wall construction ensures the down provides exceptional levels at all times.
The Valiance features a filled hood that helps you to stay warm and protected at all times. The hood allows you to find the perfect fit whilst shielding you from harsh weather conditions plus, it has been filled with Pyrotec synthetic insulation which ensures complete warmth when temperatures drop. This synthetic insulation has also been used within the cuffs to ensure added warmth on cold winter days. The cuffs are hook and loop adjustable which allows you to cinch down the fit when temperatures drop. 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 YKK VISLON 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. Two handwarmer pockets allow you to keep your hands warm when temperatures drop whilst an internal security pocket allows you to store valuable items. Lastly, the jacket is delivered with a stuff sack for all your storage needs.
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.
