Product Info

Rab Men's Microlight Alpine Jacket

The Microlight Alpine Jacket from Rab takes the theme of lightweight down garments a stage further. Constructed from incredibly lightweight yet durable Pertex Microlight 30 denier outer shell, the Microlight Alpine Jacket at only 340g still packs in a heart warming 140g of superior quality European goose down insulation with a fill power of 750+ which is coated with a Nikwax hydrophobic solution that makes the down carry on insulating even if it becomes damp, just like synthetic insulation only lighter and warmer.

Grafted onto the collar, the fully insulated down hood of the Microlight Alpine Jacket offers a greater degree of protection from the elements, and just like the rest of the jacket, is constructed using mini stitch-through baffles to stabilise the position of the down. Two elasticated hand warmer pockets provide a welcome refuge for frozen digits, and the single zipped chest pocket caters for any small essential items.

These features combine to make a lightweight, high performing and versatile down jacket which can be used for mountain marathons, ice climbing, lightweight backpacking and a whole other host of cold weather activities. Layer the Rab Microlight Alpine jacket up or down according to the weather conditions.

Tech details

Attribute Icon

Pertex develop new, lighter, stronger and more technical fabrics for brands to use on their outdoor clothing and equipment. Pertex is used on items which range as far as down sleeping bags to lightweight waterproofs. Pertex have a range of fabrics which each has it's own area of expertise.

Attribute Icon

750 Fill Power Down is high quality down which offers lightweight warmth and low pack size. High quality down gives lower weight but higher heat retention than lower fill power down.

Attribute Icon

Pertex Microlight offers some of the softest and lightest fabric in the Pertex range; essential when grams and ounces count.

Attribute Icon

Rip Stop is a lightweight nylon fabric with interwoven rip-stop reinforcement threads in a cross hatch pattern. It's woven with a coarse, strong warp and filling yarns at intervals so that tears will not spread. Rip-stop is used in construction of hot air balloons and yacht sails but in this case very effectively on outdoor clothing.

Attribute Icon

YKK Zips are used for their robustness and exceptional quality. YKK uses locking teeth to create a barrier between you and the elements.

Attribute Icon

DWR. Durable Water Repellent, is a coating added to fabrics to help add to their water repellency and shed water and snow more effectively.

Attribute Icon

Lightweight products feature lightweight materials and constructions to reduce the user’s load and aid mobility. Lightweight clothing products are thin and provide very little or no cushioning and insulation. They are best used for high-intensity or warm-weather pursuits, or employed as part of a layering system.

Attribute Icon

Garments with an Adjustable Hood feature draw cords with toggles or other adjustment mechanisms, to change the size and shape of the hood to better fit the head of the wearer. Such hoods usually adjust independently around the head, and around the face, for a snug fit and optimum weather protection.

Attribute Icon

Stitched-Through Construction: down garments and equipment constructed using a stitch through construction which helps keep down in place and reduce clumping. This construction is used mostly on mid to low weight down items.

Attribute Icon

Down has been treated in a water-repellent solution to enhance down water resistance, improve dry time, and enable loft to be retained far longer in wet conditions than untreated down. In short, hydrophobic down is not as sensitive to getting wet, so is a great improvement over untreated down in unpredictable real-world conditions.
