    Durable down.

    The Rab Men's Microlight Down Jacket is lightweight and stylish, and it shatters cold weather with its extreme protection and warmth. The trim silhouette allows room for light layering but easily stands alone with its 750-fill Nikwax Hydrophobic European goose down. From chucking massive snowballs to destroying the moguls on your skis, the durable Pertex Microlight face fabric with its DWR coating keeps your body heat where it should be. And since you’re out in Mother Nature's playground most of the time, it helps that this jacket remains tough and flexible with its nylon ripstop lining and mini stitch-through baffle construction.

    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Medium

    So, the jacket itself seems like it is constructed well and would be decently warm. However, I was unable to even test the jacket as the design of the jacket makes it completely uncomfortable to wear. The medium fits me everywhere except for in the armpits. The armpits dig into you, making the jacket annoying to wear....I'm a medium in all other jackets, and this jacket fit perfectly besides this design flaw.

    It's pretty good

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Large

    Fit: Overall, the 'trim fit' is especially true of the shoulders and arms, not so much the body. I purchased a Large Microlight, but I always buy medium in Arc' and Patagonia. I'd say the shoulder and arm fit in a large Microlight is closer to the fit of a medium Arc' or pat. While the body is closer to your standard 'large', though not quite... Consider sizing up if you have a broader stature, but it wont be as trim, naturally.

    I will say I am happy with it.

    The upside of sizing up is that it allows for a little more layering. Maybe good since is a lighter piece. Fits an R1 (medium) well underneath it, but it also goes under my medium Arc' Beta AR shell easily with just a little hem-show. For me this is actually good because its main uses will be skiing in the rockies and camping/hiking where variability is really nice.

    Construction: The construction and materials are as outstanding as other reviews have claimed. After a number of stuffs and wears I have only seen ONE feather come through the Pertex fabric which is soft in the hand and quiet. The collar is well insulated and stands up nicely. The zip hand warmer pockets are massive. Nice for cramming stuff in on the go, but therefor loose quite a bit of heat when open. Really noticeable when warming my hands... Stuff sack - WTF... It's just another thing to hold onto. You can also get this into one of the hand pockets ( actually not much bigger than the sack). Double hem adjustments are nice and provide a good fit - I dislike the way Patagonia and others have gone with these single-tab drawcords. Also noticed that the pulls, cords, and plastic cord fasteners are at a nicely considered weight - fitting for a lightweight piece, but not too dainty. The cuffs are tight enough to function without any issue and are easily pulled up over the forearms when necessary. European left-sided zipper. It is crazy light and is proving very sturdy!

    *UPDATE: It's easily warm enough into the mid 30's with only a T underneath.

    Love this jacket

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: L

    I actually own two. I own one with a hood (previous generation, XL) and wifey got me one without for an early xmas gift (L). It's super light and super warm. Perfect for shoving into the last nook in a suitcase or a backpack. I've kept might warm with this jacket under a shell (or over it) on many an outdoor activity from climbing to skiing to backpacking.
    it goes everywhere with me.

    The zippered pockets are great without adding too much weight. Gives you some peace of mind when putting a valuable in there. The large fits me like a glove in the sleeves, which doesn't leave too much room for layers. But around the torso, there is space for a vest, even a down vest. I can wear a thick sweater under it, but maybe not a base layer, mid layer, and a shell (due to sleeves).
    The XL goes over everything with no complaints but isn't too baggy that I look ridiculous when i don't wear multiple layers.

    Great jacket, lightweight but tight

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Medium

    Really like the jacket. Lightweight but seems durable. Warm almost immediately after putting it on. Bought the medium based on other reviews, but it was too tight around the armpits and across the chest. I'm 5'10", 170lbs, with athletic build. Also tight at the waist and I am size 32 pant.

    Lightweight, Trim Down Jacket

      This is a very lightweight, trim down jacket/sweater. I've either purchased or tried on about six similar models and prefer the RAB for several reasons. The fit is "trim" but has sufficient fill in the jacket to provide significant warmth. Secondly, the exterior is lightweight, nevertheless it seems to provide adequate protection from the environment and prevents the feathers from escaping. Third, the neck is warm and sits at the correct height to provide good protection from the wind. If I had to list a few issues, the zipper zips on the opposite side and the neck is clearly built for a more "stout necked" individual. Nevertheless, if you tend to wear high necked sweaters, turtlenecks or scarves, it would appear to be the correct height. Overall, I would rate this as one of the top microlight jackets offered and the "twilight" color with contrasting red looks terrific. Moreover, the Medium fits my 6'0" 165 lb. frame quite well.

      Nice Jacket

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: large

      This is a good-looking, well-made jacket. Good for cool, not cold weather. It is a bit tight in the sleeves. I understand that the trim fit is stylish, but it's trimmer in the sleeves than it is anywhere else. Just another inch would make it more comfortable without hurting the look.

      Is rab fitted athletic build or loosely?
