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

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, but have feedback to share
  • 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. 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.

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 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!

Posted on

Can someone compare the hand pockets of the Endurance to the Plus? For example, the Plus are essentially thin fabric putting the hands close to the body for its warmth. This provides a different feel when compared to my other jackets which have a slight liner in the pockets. Comments?

Responded on

The Rab Neutrino Endurance and the Rab Neutrino Plus both have the thin shell fabric pockets that you experienced with the Plus.

Great warm, light, comfortable jacket

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

I live in Canada where it can get fairly cold and was looking for a warm comfortable, light down jacket. I had narrowed down my choice to the MH Nilas jacket since they were on sale, however the local store ran out of my size. I attended another local store Trailhead and noticed that they sold some Rab jacket which I didn't think were available in Canada. Apparently there are around 8 Retailers country wide who do sell there jackets. I tried on the jacket and was really impressed with how comfortable it was and that it had somewhat of a tailored fit for a jacket of this style. I also tried it on underneath my OR hard shell Gortex jacket just to see if it was possible and it fit nicely. I'm 5'10, athletic build, 185 pounds and the medium was a great fit. I was able to test the jacket out today as the conditions were -25 c, and -38 c with the windchill. I layered long underwear, Arteryx LT hoodie and another mid layer then the Rab Endurance jacket. I was out with my dog for approximately 45 minutes walking at a medium speed. I was very warm and probably could have done without one of the mid layers. The jacket did a great job blocking the wind and fit over top of a Yukon style fur hat. The hood also fits great around your head with no hat or helmet. Hopefully this helps answer a few questions about the jacket for anyone considering buying it. The best way I can describe it is that it feels like your wearing a down duvet cover around your upper body that's been tailor cut and weights almost nothing. So far I'm very happy with it and would feel safe taking it winter camping.

The Rab Neutrino Plus Down Jacket and Rab Neutrino Endurance Down Jacket are both excellent severe cold weather options but the Neutrino Plus will be just a bit warmer with its heavier fill weight.

I noticed that most of the user pics show the hood being worn over a helmet. How well does the hood fit without a helmet?

Best Answer Responded on

Mark,
The Neutrino's hood is definitely helmet compatible which you can see in the pics, and it is more geared toward technical use than many other downs on the market, but that doesn't mean it can't be worn without a hood, or even casually for that matter. The hood will fit a little larger than some other down hoods you may have tried, but it also has pull cords on either side for creating a snug and seamless fit around the face.

Responded on

Not well. If you want the hood to fit properly, helmet or no, buy one size up.

I'm looking for a very warm jacket for commuting around the big city. By warm, I mean nothing but a t-shirt underneath warm. Is this the one? Also, are there pockets other than the two outside?

Best Answer Responded on

Hey Mark,

The Neutrino Endurance should be plenty warm for cold commute days-- easily down to temps around 0, with no need for additional layers. Of course, all of this is heavily dependent on your own metabolism, how long you stand in one place, etc--but this is definitely a very warm jacket.

The Neutrino Endurance also comes with a zippered interior pocket--handy for stashing your keys and wallet.

Hope this helps!

I'm 5'10 1/2". 165 lbs. 41 chest. 33 waist. What size should I get for either the endurance or the endurance plus. I'm leaning towards the plus.

Responded on

Hi NL--the Endurance runs true to size, where the Plus runs consistently large. I would say a Medium in the Plus and a Large in the standard would be great for you.

Between the Endurance or the Plus, I'd look at the plus as well--you'll appreciate the warmth if this winter is as cold as it's been.

My impressions of this jacket Size Large

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

I haven't had the jacket that long although I have used it in a variety of conditions so far. I live in WA pacific NW and have seen weather with this jacket ranging from the mid 40's and raining to around 10 degrees.

The jacket has worked as I would expect it to keeping me very warm even when the temps dipped to almost single digits. I bought this jacket after reading some fairly good reviews and am very happy with my purchase so far.

Sizing is consistant and fit is on the athletic side which works for me as I am 5'10" 195lbs Chest is 45" waist is 33" so I don't wear more than a base layer underneith and have to cynch the bottom quite a bit, might have been better off with an XL, but the waist ends up being wayyy to big...

All and all the jacket is light and very warm extremely nice jacket!!

Finally-the perfect down jacket.

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

I've been looking for the perfect down jacket for a while. I live in the PNW and its usually wet around here so having the Pertex Endurance fabric is a nice bonus. Also, I'm very thin and tend to run cold and on top of that I continue to climb even in the winter months. This jacket has finally fit the bill. I first tried the Marmot Ama Dablam. It had a great fit, but there wasn't enough down to keep me warm. I then tried the Marmot Greenland. That jacket was too warm. I then tried the First Ascent downlight jacket which I tried to love, but it wasn't very weather resistant and and didn't fit right over my mountaineering layers. This jacket finally felt right. Perfect amount of insulation to keep me warm (more down in the body than in the arms) but not enough to make me start sweating like crazy. Additionally, the hood is great and the collar covers high to seal out the wind and cold. For reference, I am 6', 135 lbs. and bought a medium. This fits fits easily over my winter mountaineering layers (base layer, 100-200 weight fleece, light synthetic jacket [atom lt], and a hard/softshell). If you're looking for a warm, weather resistant down jacket, this a great buy!

PS: I bought the "smoke" color and it's more of a gun-metal color; not nearly as light as the picture shows.

Just frikkin awesome.

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small

Just an amazing amazing jacket for the price that will keep you warm. Fits true to size. I'm 5'8, 160 pounds with a 40 inch chest and medium fits just right without layers. Any layering and I would have to size up. The Pertex Endurance will shed light precipitation. It is not as breathable as high quality shells, but this is not a jacket designed for high aerobic activity. Rab's helmet-compatible hoods are right up there among the best.

I'd been onsidering the Rab Infinity Endurance, but I couldn't justify going for the less durable and less warm jacket for only 2 ounces.

My one complaint is that the down migrates on the volar surface of my forearms and biceps after repeatedly flexing my biceps leaving no insulation on my biceps. This is a problem on many down jackets, and it can only be fixed through creating more baffles at the mid-arm or by placing synthetic insulation at the mid-arm. I also have a HUGE head, so the down collar is really snug on my jaw/chin on a medium jacket.

I also own the Mountain Equipment Vega which is a very comparable jacket. I prefer the Vega because of the cool hood and easier zipper, but you can't go wrong with either.

Hello,

I am 5'5" and about 140lbs. My chest is about 37" and I have a 29" waist. I'm looking to use this jacket as an outer layer over a baselayer, midlayer and softshell for added warmth when I stop climbing. Do you think I should go for a Small or Medium?
Thanks in advance.

Responded on

Well, you would probably fit best in a size Small but with all those layers underneath you might be better off with a size Medium. Since it sound like you know about what layers you are going to be putting on under this jacket, maybe get a measurement while wearing all the pieces and see how close you are to the 40" chest measurement for a Medium.

Responded on

with the small and all those layers, i would agree with wayne. i think you stand a good chance of have restricted movement wearing those layers with the jacket zipped up. good news is that whichever size you buy from BC, you can try it on and easily exchange if it doess't fit correctly.

Hi all,
I am wondering if some of you can give some size advice. I am smallish male, 5'5" and 120 pounds. I intend to use this jacket over a couple of layer. My chest is about 34 inches, waist 28 inches. Should I opt for S or XS?
Thanks!

Responded on

I am light-built; I often buy XS women's for a nice fit, like my Arcteryx Alpha light is XS Women and it gives a snug fit. I am looking to wear the Neutrino over my existing layers (including the hardshell) when it gets very cold, or while belaying on waterfall ice, such use, so I am wondering whether XS Male would be fine or S is better. My primary use will be alpine/waterfall ice, so freedom of movement of arms is critical.

Best Answer Responded on

I think you're right on the borderline between a small and an extra small. I have both a medium and a large, and have also tried on a small (which I couldn't comfortably zip). Do you have broader shoulders, and what is your arm length? I would probably try a small first. You might not get a good city look, but it will work well for the other reasons: wearing your extra layers could up-size you, and you need unrestricted movement of your arms, which means you want perhaps slightly longer arms. It may be a little big, but that's how belay jackets should fit. If it's too big, take advantage of Backcountry's awesome return policy. :)

Starting in the Fall 2013 line of Rab Neutrino Endurance jackets, Rab has started to use 'Hydrophobic Down' which is fluorocarbon-free. Does anyone know what this technology is? Is it like a Nikwax downproof that wears off over time or is it a permanent nanopolymer coating like Down-Tek which should last the life of the garment?

Best Answer Responded on

I've asked retailers and Rab itself about this new treatment and they're very tight-lipped about it. My conclusion, based mostly off conjecture and the internets, is that Rab is basically washing the already-available Nikwax Down Proof into their down in large quantities, probably under the supervision of Nikwax to make sure it's applied perfectly.

My reasoning for this is:
1) Rab hasn't marketed their hydrophobic down technology very much, unlike Patagonia with Encapsil, Sierra Designs with DriDown, Brooks Range with DownTek, etc. This tells me it isn't revolutionary, and certainly Nikwax Down Proof wash-in solution isn't really revolutionary or new at all.
2) On Rab's website, they now recommend cleaning jackets with the 1-2 punch of Nikwax Down Wash and then, "to maintain DWR", use Nikwax Down Proof solution.
3) On Rab's website for their new down, they say that their process is "far more effective and durable" than DIY wash-in products. Other down proofing technologies emphasize the permanence of their treatment, not the durability, implying that this treatment will eventually wear off. Especially since in #2 above, Rab recommends using Down Proof when cleaning the jacket.
4) The marketing speak for the new technologies mirrors Nikwax's Down Proof to a T, especially the emphasis on "fluorocarbon free".

TLDR; My conclusion with all of this is that they're using Nikwax Down Proof in an industrial wash-in process, likely meaning higher quality results than DIY wash-in, but ultimately it's little more than a DWR that will wear off over time.
