Rab Womens Microlight Alpine Jacket - Black




A highly packable, multipurpose, yet lightweight jacket that provides instant warmth when the temperature drops.

With a fresh design aesthetic and recycled construction, the classic women’s Microlight Alpine Jacket is the go-to, multipurpose down jacket for everyday use.

Recycled 30D nylon Pertex Quantum – Uses an ultra-thin, water-resistant coating to provide increased weather resistance for use in extreme conditions. Maximises thermal efficiency of insulation.

700FP R.D.S Recycled Down – Fluorocarbon free down with a Hydrophobic treatment applied at the source during down processing. Allowing it to absorb less water, dry faster and retain loft.


  • Zoned lightweight micro and nano baffle stitch-through construction
  • Adjustable hood with stiffened peak
  • YKK zipped hand pockets and large zipped chest pocket
  • Internally elasticated cuffs and drawcord adjustable hem
  • Composition: 100% recycled polyamide outer with 100% recycled polyamide lining
  • Fit: Regular
  • Centre back length (Size 12) 69cm/27 inch

A closer look
The zoned, micro and nano stitch-through baffle construction minimises the amount of outer fabric and stitching required during manufacturing, providing a significant weight saving.

The adjustable hood is paired with a stiffened peak to ensure your vision is never compromised. Two, harness-compatible YKK zipped hand pockets and a large zipped chest pocket keeps essentials organised, and internally elasticated cuffs and a drawcord adjustable hem ensures the perfect fit.

The GRS-certified P.U.R.E. recycled down is reclaimed from post-consumer waste items like duvets and pillows. The reclaimed down is sterilised, cleaned, treated with Nikwax® hydrophobic treatment and graded into different qualities and fill-powers, resulting in the same insulation properties as virgin down. Using recycled down is a sustainable alternative to virgin down, helps reduce environmental impact, and also helps prevent unnecessary waste going to landfill. Sorted and graded in Italy, P.U.R.E. recycled down is currently the only down recycling company to be certified by the Global Recycling Standard.

  • Rab Womens Microlight Alpine Jacket - Black review by Dawn, on 27/08/2022

    Good quality jacket, lovely colour. True to size, sleeves slightly long but can be tucked under so no problem. Prompt delivery. Would highly recommend this company.
  • Rab Womens Microlight Alpine Jacket - Black review by SarahG, on 29/07/2022

    Love this jacket. Fit is a loose one but not too loose so you could put extra layers underneath. Nice cut and very lightweight. Love the pocket that it comes with so you can pack it into the smallest of bags.
  • Rab Womens Microlight Alpine Jacket - Black review by Mike, on 30/01/2022

    Great jacket for my girlfriend we needed something warm but light weight and packable..this is perfect. She loves the look fit and colour
  • Rab Womens Microlight Alpine Jacket - Black review by Jo, on 14/11/2021

    Superb jacket - great quality, lightweight and super warm. Excellent service from Taunton Leisure, as always!
  • Rab Womens Microlight Alpine Jacket - Black review by Eileen Gaudion, on 26/09/2021

    Very efficient ordering process followed by rapid delivery. Weather too warm to wear this jacket at the moment.
  • Rab Womens Microlight Alpine Jacket - Black review by Anali, on 27/04/2021

    Love my Rab Jacket. Fits perfectly, lightweight but warm. Highly recommend to anyone even though it’s pricey.
  • Rab Womens Microlight Alpine Jacket - Black review by Patricia Woodman, on 24/02/2021

    Very pleased with my jacket. A good fit and the slate colour very nice.Nice and light but very warm.
  • Rab Womens Microlight Alpine Jacket - Black review by Julie, on 08/02/2021

    Super fast delivery via DPD and great communication. The jacket is as described, I ordered size 8 and fits true to size. It’s gorgeous, super light and toasty warm!!
  • Rab Womens Microlight Alpine Jacket - Black review by Stuart, on 06/02/2021

    Great jacket, bought for wife. Had to return and order size larger but she is post baby. Surprising waterproof, cosy and great fit. Perfect for the Scottish hills. Wouldn’t get caught in a sustained downpour with it but easily takes a rain shower without the down clumping. Hood good fit, as with rest of jacket. Warm but she says also very breathable. Would order again. Great service from Taunton leisure . Just gutted I’m between sizes in the men’s.
  • Rab Womens Microlight Alpine Jacket - Black review by Pam, on 28/01/2021

    Nice warm jacket, great hood, but Im disappointed in the amount of feathers that escape and the fact that under the arms there is no insulation at all.
  • Rab Womens Microlight Alpine Jacket - Black review by Wendy Richards Wood, on 31/10/2023

    Very smart looking jacket. Did expect it to be warmer though.
  • Rab Womens Microlight Alpine Jacket - Black review by Daniella, on 01/12/2022

    Marvellous jacket. Really nice and cosy. Exceptionally lightweight and packs down fairly small. I was concerned about sizing but I am an 18 and bought the 18. I can comfortably fit a base and mid layer underneath. I wouldn’t though because I’d roast, it’s that warm. I possibly could have gone down to a 16 for a snugger fit, it’s quite roomy, but I like that I can layer up. I’m also incredibly pleased with the ease of movement in the jacket, I can raise my arms and it doesn’t ride up, not even a little bit. Recommend!!!
  • Rab Womens Microlight Alpine Jacket - Black review by Tina, on 29/10/2022

    This is a great warm but lightweight jacket. Lovely to wear in the winter , with something light underneath or in the winter as an outer warm layer. The color is vibrant and the fit pertect
  • Rab Womens Microlight Alpine Jacket - Black review by David Reynolds, on 29/03/2022

    For the price this is a great buy for a Rab jacket.My wife is more than happy with it.On top of that the service was 1st class.
  • Rab Womens Microlight Alpine Jacket - Black review by Helen TURVEY, on 05/03/2022

    This coat is my favourite insulated coat. This was to replace a previous one which I’ve had many years. I wear it everyday during the winter and it’s warm, lightweight and layers well. Hope this one lasts as well and is as successful.
  • Rab Womens Microlight Alpine Jacket - Black review by Darren, on 12/12/2021

    Great coat
  • Rab Womens Microlight Alpine Jacket - Black review by Fiona, on 30/04/2021

    This is a great jacket, warm but very light. Really impressed with the fit & sizing; I ordered my usual size & the jacket is nicely shaped to fit the waist. Not tried to put it into the pack away bag yet but I’m sure this will be very useful. The turquoise lining really makes it look great.
