With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

Rab Womens Valiance Parka - Steel Information

Season : Clearance

Brand : Rab

Code : QDB-05-ST

You can't control the weather, but you can be protected with the Rab Women's Valiance Parka. Ice, rain and wind, this thigh length parka will be your sanctuary from the storm.

A durable, waterproof, fully taped Pertex outer made from a fusion of technically advanced face fabrics is paired with a breathable waterproof PU film laminate. Offering high levels of wind and water protection, and excellent breathability for fast moving outdoor athletes.

It 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.
Packed inside these baffles is 800FP Responsible Down Standard (R.D.S) European Goose Down that has had a Hydrophobic treatment applied at source during down processing. Fluorocarbon free, this down absorbs less water, dries faster and retains loft.

The Pyrotec, synthetic insulation filled hood comes with a wired peak for better visibility and it is helmet compatible, so you can stay safe and protected. Slimline Velcro cuffs are filled with Pyrotec synthetic insulation and a glove friendly drawcord adjustment at the hem, and rear of hood help you to keep out the elements.

YKK VISLON front zip with internal zip baffle keeps out the wind and rain, two zipped pockets also keep your hands warm and a internal zipped pockets keep your valuables close. When not in use, this jacket can be carried in the supplied stuff sack.

  • Rab Womens Valiance Parka - Steel Review by Orange1,  On 21/09/2019 03:35

    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!
  • Rab Womens Valiance Parka - Steel Review by EJ,  On 20/10/2019 01:50

    Very warm, light and comfortable. Covers the bum nicely and is fitted well. A bit more durable and waterproof due to the pertex which makes this coat much more practical than the average duvet jacket.
  • Rab Womens Valiance Parka - Steel Review by Gill,  On 09/11/2019 08:37

    Love my new jacket, warm cosy, great length, fast delivery. What’s more to say, oh and great colour.

    Perfect for grotty UK weather. Particularly like the neck and hood which keeps out the wind.

  • Is the crimson colour quite dark as shown here and on many other websites, or is it the bright pillar box red shown on the Rab European website?
    Question asked by Holly on Jul 7 2020 1:56PM
    Hi there, The Crimson colour is more like our image in real life. As Rab's model shots are taken in a bright photo studio, their model shots tend to make the colour look lighter/ brighter than in real life. Unfortunately phone/ computer screens can also distort colours slightly, depending on how they are set up, so we are unable to guarantee you will receive the exact colour you see on a certain screen. We hope that helps, The Taunton Leisure Team
