Seriously light and low-profile warmth.
There's no reason serious warmth has to come with serious weightâ€”just check out the Rab Continuum Women's Hooded Down Jacket for proof. With a shell made of tough, super-light, and water-resistant Pertex Quantum GL fabric wrapping up a pile of hydrophobic 850-fill goose down, the Continuum weighs well under a pound and packs up into its own chest pocket, making it as unobtrusive in your pack as it is on your back. It still packs the warmth of a much heavier jacket, thanks to the super-lofty down, so you can wear it on its own during chilly belays or approaches, but has a slim fit that slides under a shell if the weather takes a turn for the worse. Rab designed the hood to work comfortably with a helmet, stitched a small baffle behind the zipper to block drafts, and included elastic cuffs and a hem drawstring to keep cold out and body heat in.
