Seriously light and low-profile warmth.
There's no reason serious warmth has to come with serious weight—just check out the Rab Continuum Women's Hooded Down Jacket for proof. With a shell made of tough, super-light, and water-resistant Pertex Quantum GL fabric wrapping up a pile of hydrophobic 850-fill goose down, the Continuum weighs well under a pound and packs up into its own chest pocket, making it as unobtrusive in your pack as it is on your back. It still packs the warmth of a much heavier jacket, thanks to the super-lofty down, so you can wear it on its own during chilly belays or approaches, but has a slim fit that slides under a shell if the weather takes a turn for the worse. Rab designed the hood to work comfortably with a helmet, stitched a small baffle behind the zipper to block drafts, and included elastic cuffs and a hem drawstring to keep cold out and body heat in.

First off - this jacket is flippin' gorgeous. I saw it in the color Violet, fell in love, and then pounced on purchasing at the instant I saw it for a discounted price. I am 5'11"/an athletic build and got the size M/UK12. The jacket fits perfectly and is SO LIGHT AND SO COZY. I love that I can fit this jacket under my Patagona River Salt Jacket and a pair of waders during a chilly fly fishing sesh, and still stay warm and comfy.
Rab Hydrophobic Down
In the early days, Rab Carrington built his brand around down insulation, and we still see down manufacturing as a core part of the Rab brand today.
All of our down insulated products are filled with the highest quality Hydrophobic Down, developed in conjunction with Nikwax. The hydrophobic treatment is applied at source and is seen as the next step in our progression in down manufacturing.
