Warm to the core.
Rab endowed the Neutrino plus with a shell made of Pertex Endurance fabric with a DWR treatment, which gives the jacket excellent weather resistance and durability. For storage and comfort, Rab added two handwarmer pockets, a high-capacity internal mesh pocket, and a small internal security pocket. The combination of fabrics and down help make the jacket extremely packable, and a stuff sack in included with the purchase of the jacket.

Rab neutrino plus
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: Runs large
275g of top quality down makes this toasty warm, how warm ? It was 9F and a cold wind in Michigan last week, I was just wearing a thin cotton white business shirt...never felt remotely cold. This coat maybe too warm for normal conditions.
The outside easily withstood wind and snow, never tested in heavy rain though.
2 front pockets are large and well placed, warm for hands. Inside there is a security pocket and a mesh pocket. The hood is fixed and warm. Size wise the jacket comes up big, I am 5ft 11, 170 lbs and have a medium...maybe a small might have been better. Possibly 1/2 a size larger than normal, It is worth checking the size carefully. Jacket comes with a stuff sack, size of a small down sleeping bag, not big but not small.
Front zip is ykk waterproof type which I find harder to connect than the normal ykk zips.
Overall quality is what you would expect from rab, my sleeping bag is 25 years old ( and slept in for approx 9 months) and my down pullover is about 10 years. Both look virtually new !
I expect this to last well over 10 years.
Overall extremely happy with this jacket, I bought it for warmth and it certainly is !
Warm jacket, but fits very large

I never got to test this jacket outdoors, but I did stand outside in 35 degree weather with nothing but a t-shirt on. Despite having only a cotton tee on, this thing kept me pretty warm and essentially blocked out all wind. I was extremely happy with the performance of this jacket at a first glance.
That being said, this thing is HUGE! I'm 5'8" and 130 lbs and I felt like I was wearing a large jacket even though I ordered a SMALL. The torso runs long - I understand that this is beneficial for increasing core warmth, but this came down a full two inches past my pant crotch. I also felt like the arms were way to baggy close to the shoulders. All in all, I felt like I was wearing something two sizes too big and trying to layer underneath (baselayer, microfleece, softshell) did not eliminate that feeling.
Maybe if I had ordered an XSMALL, it would have been okay, but Rab doesn't sell that size. Too bad, it seemed like a great jacket. On a side note, the "regular" Rab Neutrino Endurance Down Jacket fit just fine in a SMALL, but I returned it for other reasons.
