Elizabeth M.wrote a review of Rab Microlight Alpine Down Jacket - Women's on October 3, 2015
Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Fit: True to size
Overall I liked this jacket; the outer fabric seemed very durable, as well as water resistant, and it fit trimly, but was large enough so I could wear a base layer and microfleece under it. With 5 oz of down fill, I bought this jacket because it was supposed to be one of the warmest on the market, which was a priority for me. However, the hood has a brim, and instead of elastic around the face it has pull cords to tighten the hood around the face. I did not like the pull cords in my face at all. The brim got in the way when I tried this on under a waterproof shell with a hood/brim. Also, this jacket does not compress down very small; it was about the size of two Nalgene bottles placed side by side. It is also much heavier than other "ultralight" puffies. I ultimately returned it for the Arcteryx Cerium LT, which I love!
