Hi I'm 6 foot skinny build 65 kg and long arms what size do you think I am
I think you would be a Medium, only because you need the arm and torso length of the medium. I think you'll find the medium still fits adequately in the body. If not, Backcountry is awesome to work with on returns/exchanges!

Hey can someone wear this jacket in -40F and still be warm and toasty? Up to what temperature range would you say that this jacket is suitable for? Thanks.
KC, with the right layering this jacket is capable of keeping you warm (not so sure about toasty) to those temperatures but there are so many factors involved and it would vary with each person.
Does anyone know if the Neutrino Endurance...
Does anyone know if the Neutrino Endurance has a drawcord on the hem? From all of the reviews and write-ups that I've read, this sounds like the jacket that I've been waiting for but I definitely want to be able to seal off the bottom.
Just bought mine, and the answer to your question is Yes.
Possibly Wrong Tech specs
I just bought this jacket from a local retailer. Had to because work was paying for it, but just fyi its only 750+ fill down (at least the one i got was), and has something like 225g of down. I got it because I needed a lightweight down that could be packed small, which it does and can. Otherwise its a super nice light weight jacket. I got a large and i'm 6'5" 180lbs and it fits fine with some room for layers, and I will be using it in the high arctic summer this year, but I'll be doing some testing while we still have some winter weather.
is the hood down filled?

Ok, I recently purchased a Salomon Fusion at a local Marshall's store here and loved it but unfortunately it was XL and it was a bit tight on the chest area for me. I am 6'6" tall and about 260lbs.
I loved the fact that it was really puffy and the material was good quality.I am from the Cleveland area and it gets quite cold here.
Can anyone recommend a brand/model that could be equivalent to the Salomon Fusion? This Rab Neutrino Endurance seems like it can do the trick maybe?
Thanks in advance
This jacket would be more than enough for Cleveland winters.
Soooo I am having a really hard time...
Soooo I am having a really hard time deciding on what jacket to go with, I have the Fitz Roy down hoody, which is 800 fill but it has hardly any down in it, it has 180 grams altogether. This jacket is 850 fill with 220 grams, and they also have the Neutrino Plus jacket from RAB that has 850 or 750 with 275 grams of down. The other one I was looking at is the Peak XV jacket from First Ascent which is really cheap, and has 850 fill down too.. I live in Fairbanks, AK and its my first winter here, and its been around -35 so far and i just want something with enough down in it, because I HATE when companies make you pay all the money for the down fill power but no down itself. PLEASE SOMEONE HELP ME! lol thanks!
Go with the Peak XV jacket. It is fantastic. I had it down to -50 in Point Lay alaska and it was warm. The shell is bomber and the fit is great. The price is unbelievable as well. Whittaker mountaineering still has some for $188. which is what I paid for mine.
And the winner is the Neutrino Endurance by Rab!
I got 5 different jackets and this jacket came out on top. Too many good features to beat:
- This jacket has the highest fill down (850), while most others had 800. Not that big of a deal.
- A hood that isn't over sized and can be cinched around your head leaving no cold spots.
- A near-waterproof finish. Only MHW Sub-Zero had something more than DWR.
- Light weight... a couple of the other jackets were lighter, but only slightly.
- A shell that can actually stand up to some abuse... although not as beefy as MHW Sub.
Basically, I couldn't find anything wrong with this jacket aside from the strange looking bill on the hood.
FYI - I got these jackets and would rank them in this order:
Rab Neutrino Endurance
Patagonia Fitz Roy
Mountain Hardwear Sub-Zero SL Jacket
Marmot Ama Dablam (not enough down for what i was looking for)

I'm looking for a coat that does what the Rab Neutrino can do but isnt puffy. My husband works outside and drives and can't be in any of a bind. He is needing one that will stand up to extreme cold but the thinnnest I can get.
Two thoughts here: first, I tried on the Cloudveil Koven Down Plus jacket, and it is incredibly warm and reasonably minimal bulk. Basically, it's a quilted down jacket inside a hardshell. To me, it was too much jacket for anything active in the temperatures that I will typically see, so maybe it would be appropriate for him. My second thought is that he might want to try on something like this jacket or maybe a Mountain Hardwear Subzero Parka or Jacket - sized correctly I've never really thought of them as being particularly restrictive. My bigger concern is that the face fabric on these jackets will not be as durable as something like the Koven Plus Down Jacket. Hope that helps!
There is no replacement for the puff. Puff = insulation. However, the Montane North Star is an outstanding not-so-puffy jacket with great warmth and light weight.

How many oz of fill does the Rab Neutrino Endurance have? What are the front/rear length measurements?
It has almost 8 ounces of fill.

What is the country of origin for the Rab Neutrino Lite Endurance Jacket
I believe that all of Rab's clothing is manufactured in China. I can't speak to this jacket for sure, but the Latok Alpine definitely is.
Ya, all there stuff is China, China, China.. :(
I've been reading about this jacket,...
I've been reading about this jacket, and it seems to be what I'm looking for. But if you where to recommend alternatives, what would they be? ($200 -$300, Water-/weatherproof, suitable for a Norwegian winter, both daily and mountain use)
And what size? I'm 178 cm an 65 kg, skinny/normal buildt.
Marmot Greenland. More expensive but your money is all going towards more down fill, it has 325 g down vs 220 g for the Rab. It has almost the same down weight to total weight ratio just a warmer jacket. For the what the Rab Neutrino Endurance is though it is the best I've seen out there.
