Rab Womens Valiance Parka - Deep Ink




The ultimate warm and waterproof down parka.

A welcome sanctuary from the storm, this jacket not only protects you from ice, rain and wind, but helps to keep you warm, too. The longer length offers greater coverage of protection.

Materials & Insulation

Pertex Shield fully taped waterproof outer – Durable, waterproof and fully taped outer constructed form a fusion of advanced face fabrics and combined with a breathable waterproof PU film laminated to offer high levels of wind and water protection, and excellent breathability.

800FP R.D.S Certified European Goose 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.

Pyrotec Synthetic Insulation – Doesn’t absorb water. Used in specific areas that are more likely to come into contact with moisture.


  • Bonded narrow box-wall construction
  • YKK VISLON AquaGuard front zip with synthetic insulated baffle behind
  • 2 YKK AquaGuard coil zipped hand pockets
  • Internal zipped security pocket
  • Hook and loop adjustable cuff tabs
  • Stuff sack
  • Mid-thigh length
  • Fit: Regular
  • Centre back length (Size 12) 84cm/33 inch

A closer look

The women’s Valiance Parka utilises a unique bonded narrow box-wall baffle construction that runs horizontally across the body. Because the box-shaped baffles are not pinched at the edges there is space for the down to fully loft throughout the chamber allowing for an even distribution of down, and vastly reducing the likelihood of cold spots. The extra material used to create each box means that these garments are usually heavier and less packable. However, in the most extreme temperatures, they are often the best solution.

Slimline, Velcro adjustable cuffs and a glove friendly drawcord adjustment at the hem, and rear of the hood, help you to keep out the elements. A YKK VISLON front zip with internal zip baffle keeps out the wind and rain, two zipped pockets also keep your hands warm and an internal zipped pockets keep your valuables close. When not in use, this jacket can be carried in the supplied stuff sack.


Rab have a pledge to be net-zero by 2030 and have made significant strides already. Recycled materials feature in products, including recycled down (one of the biggest selling categories for us and them), this is just the start, there is more to do. Find out more about Rab’s Net Zero Plan

  • Rab Womens Valiance Parka - Deep Ink review by Carrie, on 21/02/2021 08:59:04

    Very warm and very waterproof. Perfect for days when the weather is temperamental.
  • Rab Womens Valiance Parka - Deep Ink review by Sue, on 22/01/2021 12:28:19

    Fantastic jacket, like walking around in a sleeping bag! Perfect fit, true to size for me. Thanks.
  • Rab Womens Valiance Parka - Deep Ink review by Mel, on 16/11/2019 11:41:00

    Perfect for grotty UK weather. Particularly like the neck and hood which keeps out the wind.
  • Rab Womens Valiance Parka - Deep Ink review by Gill, on 09/11/2019 08:37:00

    Love my new jacket, warm cosy, great length, fast delivery. What’s more to say, oh and great colour.
  • Rab Womens Valiance Parka - Deep Ink review by Orange1, on 21/09/2019 03:35:00

    This is the long version of the Valiance mountaineering jacket. I prefer it because its got a smaller hood, mainly because its for use without a helmet. True to size with just enough room for a jumper underneath if needed. Its only a little bit more expensive than the short jacket but is that bit warmer. Not over designed either - a bulky coat doesnt want a load of zips, logos etc. Very light - Im actually looking forward to the snow now!
