Rab Mens Microlight Alpine Jacket - Deep Ink

Season : S20

Brand : Rab

Code : P-10226-53

The Microlight Alpine jacket is ideal for any adventure where warmth, weight, and packability are prime concerns.

The Pertex Quantum outer is constructed from a tightly woven structure to provide a light and soft fabric that allows the down to fully loft, improving thermal efficiency. As well as a durable water repellent finish designed to shrug off light rain, the 750FP of R.D.S Certified European Goose Down has a hydrophobic coating which allows the down to keep you warm even when you get caught in that unexpected rain shower.

The micro stitch-through baffle construction minimises the amount of outer fabric and stitching required and prevents the down from migrating in the jacket minimising cold spots and reducing weight. The four panel body design removes the side seam, improving the fit and comfort of the garment. The adjustable hood is paired with a laminated brim and a flexible polymer peak to ensure your vision is never compromised and the diverted baffle designed provides an anatomical fit.

A stuff sack makes light work of transporting your jacket safely and elasticated cuffs and dual hem draw cord adjustments keep the warm air in.

  • Rab Mens Microlight Alpine Jacket - Deep Ink ,  On

    I recently purchased a Rab Microlight Alpine jkt in black from taunton leisure , the service was brilliant and jkt arrived on time with no problems. The jkt is brilliant, light weight ,compacted when in the stuff sac ,sheds the rain quite well although i use the rab deluge plus jkt over the top if its raining to heavy and is lovely and comfortable in the cooler morning and late evenings with just a t shirt underneath. Looking forward to the colder day to come but have every faith in the jkt down to at least -5 hopefully

  • Rab Mens Microlight Alpine Jacket - Deep Ink ,  On

    I’ve had down jackets before and found the bulk to be too much in an active climbing/hiking situation and I would become quickly overheated. The Rab Microlight Jacket exceeded all my expectations and with just a base layer underneath I was kept comfortably warm. Once up top on the exposed plateau with snow on the ground and the wind blowing, temperatures dropped. I was kept warm and felt no need to add a layer as I normally would do to suit changing conditions. On approach to the summit, the fixed insulated hood came into play staying in place while providing great protection and warmth from the now howling wind. I also noted that it’s wide enough to accommodate my hat. It wasn’t the coldest of days and in real sub-zero conditions I would add a mid-layer, but for this day it was ideal, breathable and comfortable. Another great feature, and again important to my needs are the pockets. Two huge lower pockets accommodated gloves, snacks, camera remotes and a map with ease. My phone was secure and dry in the top pocket. It packs so small into the supplied bag and takes up hardly any of your valuable space. It’s very low weight is a great asset when out. The Microlight is excellent, the warmth to weight ratio outstanding. It is showerproof and a great jacket to keep in the top of your pack taking up little space. The Rab Microlight Alpine Jacket will be my daily jacket for city life and my main jacket for the winter climate, fitting perfectly into anyone’s layering system or as a stand-alone item. Although waterproof I would still advise carrying a completely waterproof jacket for extreme rain.
