Highlights from Rab’s brand new Winter 2020 range

Take a look here at some of our favourite pieces of outdoor gear from Rab’s exciting new season.


Almost synonymous with British outdoor gear, Rab is one of the most popular and well regarded brands within our supply of terrific outdoor clothing. Autumn/Winter 2020 sees a fair few changes and upgrades to already very popular and well established garments and we thought it would be a good idea to go through some of the big changes in some of their products as well as highlight some of our favourite as well as some of the more distinct products new to the range. We’ll start with a superb update on one of their most iconic products.

Microlight aw20

The NEW recycled Microlight Jackets

Touched upon in some recent blogs, this coming season of Rab’s most popular jacket is now nearly fully recycled with everything but the zip being reused. A fully recycled Pertex Quantum outer fabric (made using a beautifully lightweight ripstop nylon) forms the outer of the jacket, holding the lovely, soft recycled goose down within. The zoned, micro and nano stitch-through baffle construction minimises the amount of outer fabric and stitching required during manufacturing, which provides a significant saving in weight. The 700FP recycled down within has a Nikwax hydrophobic treatment applied during processing, meaning it can take a fair amount more moisture than standard down before “clogging up” and dries much faster. Two YKK zipped hand pockets and a large chest pocket (large enough to hold a OS map) keeps everything tidy and organised, and internally elasticated cuffs and the drawcord adjustable hem ensure the perfect fit. As always, the jacket is supplied with a stuff sack for easy packing on the trail.

Kanfri Gtx aw20

The Kangri Gtx Waterproof jacket

Following last years team up between Rab and Gore-Tex fabrics, the Kangri Jacket has seen a great deal of acclaim and success. It now comes to us in bold new colourways in a robust, technical design.  This well featured, waterproof and breathable jacket is constructed using GORE-TEX Classic technology for all round protection. Designed for all round mountain use, the Rab Kangri is made from 3-layer GORE-TEX waterproof and breathable technology to ensure you stay dry and comfortable all day long.
The regular fit makes it an ideal layering piece. The fully adjustable mountain hood features a wired and laminated peak for unrestricted vision, and a roll down hood tab keeps the hood out of the way when not in use. The YKK AquaGuard VISLON front zip is backed by a internal storm guard to keep out the wind and the fleece lined chin guard offers next to skin comfort.

Storm gloves

The Storm Gloves and Storm Mitts

Both having a significant update from the last Autumn/Winter season, these cosy pieces of hand wear are both waterproof, warm and very comfortable. A Nylon rip-stop outers are paired with Porelle waterproof inserts which offer superb protection against the cold, wind and rain. The textured  PU durable palms on both allow great grip for ice axes, climbing rope and walking poles. Pre-curved fits enhance grip also and cinching lock off cuffs seal in the warmth. Now you have to just decide whether you prefer mittens of fingers. Available in both men’s and women’s sizes.

Photonpant aw20

Photon Pants

An absolute game changer for winter camping! The Rab Men's Photon Pant utilises Stratos insulation, making them ideal for cold weather expeditions. The Pertex Quantum outer fabric is paired with Pertex Shield reinforcement panels on the seat, knees and kick patches for added durability. While the 100% recycled polyester, Stratus insulation keeps off the chill. Full length YKK side zips allow you to easily get these pants on and off - even while wearing crampons - and the internal insulated baffle features a snap closure at the waist and hem. The waistband is flat at the front, elasticated at the back and features a YKK zipped fly. These pants also feature YKK zipped hand warmer pockets, brace compatible loops and it even comes with its own stuff sack.

Silponcho aw20

The Silponcho

Certainly one of Rab’s more distinct pieces to come out on the new range, the Silponcho is a multi-purpose poncho that can be used as a tarp, bivy, pack or sleeping bag cover.
The ultralight silicone impregnated 30D ripstop nylon is waterproof and incredibly strong. Shock cord at bottom edge allows the poncho to be snugged around the bottom of a pack for security in windy conditions and the edges are fitted with webbing loops and snap closures to permit multiple set up options. Comes with a Silcoat stuff sack. This is the ultimate do it all poncho for intrepid bivouac enthusiasts and lightweight trekkers alike. Also we agree, it is impossible to be unhappy in a poncho.

Capacitor hoodies aw20

The Capacitor hoodies

beautifully fitted, lightweight and very cosy, the Capacitor hoody is expected to be one of this seasons most popular mid layers. Featuring double brushed fleece combined with stretch side panels to create a warm, ultra comfortable mid layer for active mountain days.
The recycled knit, face brushed fleece fabric is a modern take on the classic 200 weight fleece and the side Thermic stretch fleece side panels with a soft brushed back has been developed to be light, warm, fast drying and durable.
The low profile hood features stretch side panels and is designed to sit comfortably under a helmet. Two mesh-lined YKK zipped hand pockets and a YKK zipped chest pocket keeps your essentials close.

Nebula Pro

The Nebula Pro Jackets

Another insulated piece, this time utilizing Rab’s own recycled Cirrus synthetic insulation. This midi baffled mountain jacket has also been updated with a fully recycled outer Pertex Quantum fabric. The Pertex Quantum Pro outer uses a ultra-thin water resistant coating to provide increased weather resistance for use in extreme conditions. This durable construction is highly water-resistant and maximises thermal efficiency. Packed inside this jackets midi baffles is Rab's new Cirrus HL (High Loft) synthetic insulation. Expanding to fill the baffles, this insulation provides excellent warmth to weight properties. It has been proven to deliver the same warmth to weight ratio as 600FP duck down. Unlike down, however, Cirrus performs well in damp conditions, making it perfect for the British weather. The fully adjustable, helmet compatible hood is paired with a stiffened peak for weather protection. The front two-way zip is backed by a internal flap for weather protection and the fully adjustable cuffs and hem help seal in the warmth. Two zipped hand pockets and one chest pocket keep your essentials close.
