There are plenty of super-light down sweaters on the market. But what if you applied the principles that make those sweaters so light and packable to a jacket with some serious fill and serious warmth? The result would be the Rab Infinity jacket, filled with 180 grams of 850+ fill European goose down contained by Pertex® Quantum GL® 10 denier fabric, the lightest-ever incarnation of what was already one of the lightest fabrics on the market. The result is a jacket that weighs just 410g and rivals the warmth of many jackets twice its weight. With a thoughtfully designed, female-specific fit, a fixed hood, and cozy lined hand warmer pockets, the Infinity is the go-to-piece when you don't want to compromise on warmth, weight, or packability.

- 2 YKK zipped hand warmer pockets
- 1 YKK zipped internal security pocket

In 1981, British mountaineer Robert “Rab” Carrington started making down jackets and sleeping bags in Sheffield, England. Inspired by the new style of lightweight alpine climbing which he helped pioneer, Rab made it his mission to make equipment that would withstand “the most extreme conditions in the world.”
Rab’s product line has expanded dramatically since then, but Rab’s commitment to functionality, durability, and value remains as strong as ever. At GearX.com, we are continually impressed by Rab’s superb knowledge of technical fabrics (they were the originators of Pertex) and attention to small yet crucial details like high-quality zippers. No matter which Rab product you choose, you can be sure that it will be a faithful companion in the mountains.
