An extremely lightweight jacket that won't give you any excuses to leave it behind.

Whether you're making an alpine ascent or climbing single-pitch routes up the canyons, weight will always be something on your mind. That's why Rab designed its Men's Microlight Down Jacket to keep the weight down so you don't have to sacrifice warmth for more gear. This jacket is made out of Pertex Microlight fabric, which is windproof, breathable, and the lightest of the Pertex fabrics. In order to increase its durability, Rab added a nylon ripstop lining so you don't have to worry about the jacket tearing from jagged rocks at the belay stance. The Microlight is insulated with 125 grams of 750-fill European goose down to keep you warm in moderately cold conditions.

This jacket has a slim-fit design, which means it's ideal for using as a midlayer for extremely cold and wet ski sessions. The Lycra-bound cuffs keep cold air from breezing up its sleeves and feel soft against your skin. Rab made the chest pocket to double as a stuff sack so you can compress it down and take it with you anywhere despite how much space you have, or don't have.

Great looking and warm jacket.

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Height: 5' 7"
    Weight: 163 lbs
    Size Purchased: Medium

I originally ordered a size large and although the chest and shoulders were comfortable, the rest of the jacket was very big. Especially the waist and overall length of the jacket. I exchanged for a size medium and everything fit perfectly. I tend to like my clothes to have a fitted look and the size medium was spot on. The jacket is well made and the twilight color looks fantastic. The sleeves are slightly long but the elastic cuffs easily hold them at my wrists. The cinch cord at the waist keeps drafts out and adds to the overall trim look of the jacket. Overall I'm very pleased with the quality, fit, and look of the jacket. I would definitely recommend it.

Odd fit

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Height: 6' 4"
    Weight: 250 lbs
    Size Purchased: XXL

Technically this is a nice piece. Warm hydrophobic down, well made and nice styling. However, the arms are really tight in the bicep to forearm zone. I have a 48" chest and 37" sleeves so got the XXL. Fits well in the chest, sleeves are fine, a bit big in the waist though ... and those darn weird arms. Probably will not buy another Rab product as my body is clearly not a British fit.

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.

Light and Warm!

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

This lightweight down jacket has become a daily use item. At 14oz you hardly even notice its in your pack and it packs down into one of its pockets. The Pertex outer has just enough abrasion resistance that it doesn't cut open from light brushes against rocks and branches and is water repellent enough for light rain showers. When the mercury drops throw this on and you will be toasty in seconds.

My only complaint is that the down comes out between the seams fairly often which can be quickly remedied by drying it with a tennis ball to restore some of the loft.

Great Jacket

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

We purchased this jacket for our college age son and he loves it! It is very light weight yet warm. He also likes that the whole jacket can fold into a small pouch.

High arm pits, more of a sweater...

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

The jacket seems well-built but is much closer to a down sweater than a jacket. The biggest problems are the high armpits and small-ish sleeves. Granted, I pump a little more iron than most but I bought an XL and I don't think a XXL would make a difference because of the sleeve height and narrowness. This is the second time I've had this problem with a British made jacket. I've never had this problem with Arc, Pat, MH, Marmot. Maybe they don't know about angel-wing construction so they make the pits higher to increase mobility. Idk. Whatever the reason, this is a jacket for slim cats who want a sweater weight down jacket that can be a mid-layer or outer-layer in mild temps.

Unanswered Question

Does anyone know if they changed the overall...

Does anyone know if they changed the overall length of this for this season? It looks longer from pictures. Thanks
