Description

There are quite a lot of down sweaters on the market that bear a superficial resemblance to the Rab Microlight jacket, but be warned - it's all about the details, and some of those other down sweaters take the cheaper shortcuts while Rab makes no compromises.  

First, there's the fabric. Rab uses genuine Pertex® fabrics in their down garments inside and out. While other brands might substitute cheaper nylon linings on the inside of their down sweaters, Rab uses Pertex® Quantum fabric on the inside. Quantum is a very tightly woven fabric of ultra-fine polyamide yarns, which provides an excellent combination of light weight, lovely softness, and high durability. The Pertex® Microlight fabric used on the outside of the jacket is similar, and just a bit heavier for abrasion and cut resistance. 

On the inside, Rab has filled the Microlight Jacket with 125 grams of 750 fill European goose down. While other brands might advertise 800, 900, or even 1000-fill power down in their offerings, Rab has quite intentionally chosen 750 fill, because it has enough structure to it to actually push against the fabric and loft up to its maximum potential, and offers you performance which is virtually indistinguishable from those extremely-high-fill-power downs without the extremely high price. 

Feature list from Rab: 
  • Pertex® Microlight 30D outer shell
  • 125g (L) of 750 fill power superior quality European goose down
  • Mini stitch-through baffles stabilise position of down
  • 2 YKK zipped hand warmer pockets and YKK zipped chest pocket
  • YKK front zip with internal down filled baffle
  • Lycra bound hem and cuffs
  • Stuffs away into the chest pocket
  • Short cut


ABOUT RAB 

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.
