Description

The Endurance gets you through the coldest mountain storms.

Laugh in the face of savage sub-zero temperatures and scoff at vicious white-outs thanks to the supreme warmth of the Rab Men’s Neutrino Endurance Down Jacket. An outer shell of Pertex Endurance fabric wards off the weather while 800-fill hydrophobic goose down holds in vital warmth without packing out thanks to a stitch-through baffle construction. Despite it's massive warmth and medium-length cut, this packable jacket stuffs down small inside the included stuff sack so your already-bursting expedition pack won't blow a seam.

  • Shape the wired peak of the down-filled hood to keep the sun, whipping wind, and snow out of your face
  • An internal down-filled baffle behind the main zipper blocks cold at the chest
  • Adjustable hook-and-loop cuffs cinch securely around your leather gloves, and a hem drawcord locks out deep snow

Crossover jacket

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

I tried this jacket, and returned it. I'll lay out why:

It's a crossover jacket. It's not comparable to the Arcteryx Thorium AR, Cerium SL, MH Ghost Whisperer, because it's much heavier, more loft, waterproof/resistant PU coated shell layer. It has waterproof zippers, and a big hood that fits fine with a helmet. So it's a belay jacket, right? Heavy but amazingly warm?

Nope, it's not baffled, just sewn through. It's more of an active cut than a parka cut. It doesn't have a double zipper to unzip a big from the bottom for a harness (if you really needed that). And I guess if I have a real belay jacket, its under a big shell in the wet, or I'll wear it stand alone in the dry, and all the extra features aren't needed.

I was annoyed by cheesy velcro bits to adjust the brim of the hood, and a strap at the back of your neck that's supposed to bundle the hood into a collar. I was also not a fan of the wire brim hood when I have so many other hoods that work fine without it.

So maybe you want a crossover between a midlayer and belay down puffy? SUPER midlayer or lighter duty, wetter weather belay? I didn't.

Fit was pretty good - I'm 185, 5'11", ~40 chest, 33 waist.

troubles with the zipper

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

I really want to 100% like this jacket, but the zipper is sometimes a pain to use. It gets stuck and you have to make an extra effort to align both sides of the zipper, I can spend several seconds trying to do that before actually zip it all the way up.

I tried this jacket at 30F and it kept me warm, however, with strong wind, it is better to put on a windshield, otherwise, you'll feel a bit cold.

Good but too expensive

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

I live in anchorage ak, I'm 5'11 165lbs athletic build. I bought a medium and a large. The large fits great with just enough room to layer. I purchased this coat after going through 3 other down coats, made by top brands, and all 3 ripped within a month of purchase. I then sought out a coat that had more of a durable outer shell fabric, still pack able, and warm enough for AK. It was between this coat and the feathered friends volant. I ruled out the volant due to its style mostly, and I think it was a little more coat than I needed. I have only had this coat for one month, November , and have not been able to expose it to the real test. However I have exposed it to temperatures around 20 degrees f , rain, and light snow. The outer layer seems to shed water well and be more durable than my other coats . It's very comfortable, and has a nice style. Cons: spendy. There are many coats on the market with similar features ( although not as durable) for half this price. I don't think this coat is as warm as all the reviews claim. I have gotten chilly in it around 25 degrees ( without layering underneath). The zipper sucks.

Bottom line: good coat, expensive, would recommend to someone looking for a durable down coat.

Hello! I'm planning to visit Canada during next January. Since I live in a warm weather country all year long I'm not used to cold temperatures. I will spend some time in the big cities but I'm thinking in doing the auroras boreales and I want a very warm jacket to use for both. What do you recommend? Thanks a lot

Responded on

Yes, great jacket.. |I live in Kugluktuk Nu. Light jacket great for cities and good for the high arctic, warm plus nice looking.

What is the difference between the Neutrino Plus and the Neutrino Endurance jackets?

Best Answer Responded on

Great question as they're both great jackets.

There are four main differences.

-First being the fill weight of 275 grams for the Plus vs 225 grams for the Endurance and both have 800 pure Hydrophobic European goose down.

-The second is the torso length which the Plus is a bit longer in the torso vs the Endurance. The extra length will allow for better core-body insulation.

-The third is the Plus has a baffled boxed wall construction vs a sewn through boxed wall construction for the Endurance. The sewn through allows for some heat to escape on the Endurance.

-Fourth is the Plus has articulated elbows which allow for more freedom of movement.

*I'm not sure why the Plus is only showing a 1 year warranty as Rab products all have a lifetime warranty.

Hope this helps you out and enjoy a warm winter with a Rab Down Jacket. If you need more info or help give one of the BC Gearheads a call at 800-409-4502.

I'm heading to northern Scandinavia next January and need a really warm jacket/parka mainly for walking tours. I'm 6'5" tall, 40" chest, 37" arm, athletic like guy. What model and size would you recommend? I normally use size L. My biggest concern is the sleeve's length. Thank you! Arturo

Responded on

Size up in Rab. It's a british cut which tends to be narrow chest/shoulders, straight through the waist and longer arms.
I'm normally a S/M in men's outerwear and I got the medium win the Neutrino plus. Even with the medium, I halfway considered a Large for layering. Your normal size will be snug and athletic, but something this puffy benefits from a little extra room to layer under.

Curious as to the main difference between the latest Infinity jacket and the Neutrino Endurance? From what I can see, they share similar fill type and weights, and both sport sewn-thru baffle construction?
I have the Neutrino and am thus far pleased with it-but I am curious about the above?

Best Answer Responded on

The Infinity is a lighter jacket and uses a 10 D Nylon compared to the Endurance which uses 30 D Nylon, so the Endurance is a bit more durable but 3 ounces heavier. The Endurance also uses a hydrophobic down so if it gets wet it will hold its loft a bit better and dry a lot quicker.

Responded on

Bill is right. Also the Neutrino is a longer cut and the infinity has higher quality of down. Basically the inifinity is designed for those shedding ounces at all turns while the endurance is a little more forgiving in both environmental and treatment cases.

I'm looking for a jacket for around-town use. It should be super warm, when cold, but wearable above 0°C, too. That means I want to stay toasty in the morning at the bus stop, but also wearing my jacket the same day while going back home (when you won't need such a warm jacket, but it is to cold to go without any). I just want to wear a T-Shirt or light Sweatshirt under it, so I would like to know whether this one would be the right choice? Can anyone tell something about the temperature range for using it? (I know it's quite subjective, but just to have a clue)
Thank you!

Hey Roland!

This jacket is a really warm, durable jacket that is going to be a great piece for active winter pursuits. It will be good as a belay parka, will work well for ice climbing, mountaineering, ski touring, winter camping or most anything else you plan on doing in the cold. It also would make for a great around town jacket in the winter and would definitely work for what you are looking for. If you have any other questions, you can contact me at 1-800-409-4502 ext 4446 or email at gconner@backcountry.com

I am 5'8 185!!! wondering if the lg would be the way to go. Also trying to decide whether to go with this jacket or the Arcteryx Thorium????

Best Answer Responded on

We try not to suggest sizes by height and weight since there are so many other factors that will affect how that jacket fits. Torso length, sleeve length and chest measurement are the best ways to find a good fit.

As for the Neutrino vs the Thorium, it depends on what you plan to use it for. The Neutrino is a heavier, fully down insulated piece white the Thorium is a lighter weight hybrid of synthetic and down fill. If you plan on using it in a dry, cold environment, then I'd suggest the Neutrino but if you will primarily be using it in a wetter, more mild temperatures like you'd find on the west coast the Thorium. Those jackets are vastly different even though they are both puffy insulated pieces.

Hey Bob give me a shout if you want to get some nitty gritty details on these down jackets. We will find one that works for you.

Is this jacket going to be warm enough?...

Is this jacket going to be warm enough? I'm really drawn to this jacket because of the price & weight, but I'm nervous it is not going to be warm enough. I'm looking for a jacket to use on the prezi traverse & Mt. Washington in the winter, where it could get down to -30F with windchill. I'd obviously have layers on underneath this, not just a fleece, but if anyone has experience it would be very helpful.

Despite being "fairly" water resistant,...

Despite being "fairly" water resistant, in extended wet conditions is this possible to wear a shell over this jacket comfortably? Or it is too bulky for such a use case and is supposed to worn on top of other layers?

Best Answer Responded on

You could wear it under a shell, the shell just needs to be big enough. If you bought this in a large you may want to get the shell in an XL. I feel it would be pretty bulky though, I would definitely enjoy the jacket more wearing it over everything.

So nice and so warm!

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

So i've got about a two solid winters using this for mostly backcountry splitboard missions in the Sierra Nevada range. It performs great as a belay, base camp jacket mostly as I find it too warm to use while doing anything active. However on a trip to Pico Orizaba in Mexico last fall, my riding partner and I got caught in temps around -5 degrees and winds gusting 20-30 mph near the summit. This jacket was the perfect warmth for me to keep moving and not over heat. It felt pretty awesome being in such bad weather and feeling completely protected from the cold. As for the fit, Im 5'11" 170lbs and order a medium. It's still large enough to throw it over my shell, mid and base layers. Definitely one of my favorite pieces or gear.

So nice and so warm!

Toaster

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

Could be the perfect very cold weather puffy. Design is phenomenal; not too baggy, extended back to cover your bottom somewhat, hood is adjustable and super warm. Water-resistent coating beading water with first few exposures to wet snow.
This thing is insanely warm. Literally can't keep it on when inside at room temps as you'll start to sweat, and I'm a typically cold person. I wouldn't wear it outside unless near 0 degrees.
As it is down, it packs down quite small for its size.
I'm 5'11'' 160, slim and the Large fits perfect. I'm a M in some brands/designs, so might run a bit small.

Short torso but warm DC winter

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: Runs small

I'm not an ice climber or a heli-skier--I use the jacket for around-town stuff in Washington DC, where I live, so I'm probably not qualified to judge it for warmth or durability in extreme conditions. That said, DC is bitterly cold in winter, with a special kind of constant, misery-inducing wind that goes through windstopper jackets like they were t-shirts, and this jacket made for just about the first toasty-warm DC winter I've ever survived. I mean that. This jacket is really, REALLY warm. While layering is a little difficult, I don't really need to in the city--I can walk around in a base layer or performance t-shirt under the jacket and be completely comfortable.

There is one major hiccup, and that's the cut. I have a long torso, and it fits WAY too short. That doesn't thrill me, because even though it covers me past the waist, the length means the hood fits tight. As a result, the collar doesn't cover my face. It covers my neck, which I guess is good, but I'd have preferred it to sit higher (I'm 6'3" and 185 pounds with an athletic build).

The Best Jacket for my son

  • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift
  • Fit: True to size

I purchased this jacket for my son who goes to school in Minnesota. The jacket is well made, warm and stylish; not bulky as some other down jacket that he disliked. He is 5'10" 140lb and a M fits him well.
This is the only jacket he is wearing now everyday in ' The icebox of America'.

Just so-so for "non-athletic" use.

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

I was looking for a good, lightweight, and VERY warm jacket for my daily commute. I wanted to stay away from heavy parkas and thought that this might do the job. While the jacket is certainly comfortable, it's not as warm as I'd like and the fit is tight.

I am planning to buy a Neutrino Endurance....

I am planning to buy a Neutrino Endurance. What size would you recommend? I am 38 inch chest, 5.6 feet tall and 150 pound weight.
I am wondering if the small size will give enough room for extra layers. Thanks

Responded on

From reviews here and campsaver I would say a medium. Most of them are on clearance at campsaver so BC should match their price because I would still buy from here. Sale as of 1-18.

short in arms

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

If you have long arms this great jacket will not work. I'm 6'2" 185 and the cuffs were inches above the wrist with hands at sides on the xxl. The xl was too small all around with fleece layer underneath. Too bad.

hi
I wonder if the Neutrino Plus size...

hi
I wonder if the Neutrino Plus size runs one size bigger than the regular Neutrino. I tried the Plus ; size Medium and it was way too big to me and small of Neutrino Plus was fit well. I couldn't have a chance to try regular neutrino. I normally wear Medium and 175cm and 160lbs; normal shape. any advice for size for neutrino jacket? Thanks.
Thanks.

Responded on

The Neutrino Plus will fit slightly larger than this Neutrino, Jon! The Plus has a "regular" fit while the Neutrino has an "athletic" fit.

If the small in the Plus fit you and based on the information you gave me, it does seem like a medium should work for you in this jacket!
