    High-powered warmth.

    The Rab Women's Electron Down Jacket delivers turbo-charged warmth to keep you going when you're hiking, climbing, or skiing. Between its lightweight construction and technical features, the Electron ensures that winter doesn't stand a chance of stopping you from getting after it when temperatures drop.

    Pertex Endurance fabric is amazingly durable considering how light it is, and the DWR finish helps it repel light rain and snow. Lightweight and low-profile 800-fill goose down insulation offers surprising warmth, and it has a hydrophobic treatment to prevent it from getting soggy and losing its insulating properties in wet weather. Down also makes the jacket highly compressible so you can comfortably wear it under a technical shell while you ski or embark on alpine expeditions, and the entire jacket packs into its own pocket so you can stash it in your pack when conditions are more forgiving.

    The helmet-compatible hood is adjustable so you can get a secure fit whether you're wearing a helmet or not, and it has a wire brim so it shields your face from the elements without obscuring your field of vision. Elasticated cuffs and an adjustable hem seal out chilly drafts and blowing snow. Zippered pockets secure any essentials you want to keep handy.

    Amazing

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'8"
    • Weight: 130lbs

    I've heard great things about RAB so I figured I'd give it a shot and I could not be more glad! I love having a stuff sack (though I honestly haven't used it yet), even more I love the elastic around the inside of the sleeve that allows all kinds of activities without extra material in the way. It's super compressible and super warm for the weight and I've worn it pretty much everyday since I bought it! I'm 5'7 130 and got a M because I wanted room for layering and have trouble with pinching around the shoulders/arm pits. The S would have fit fine, but I'm very wary of the arm pit pinching

    Rab for the win

    This jacket is great! The baffle width is really nice and I the fit of this jacket is spot on. I like the wire in the brim so you can adjust how if fits as needed. Not really a pink person but the pink on the inside is alright. Rab makes really great stuff, this jacket breathes well so you dont build up that sweaty - in a plastic bag feeling you get with some similar jackets.

    This is my kind of jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'6"
    • Weight: 138lbs

    I've heard amazing reviews by other adventurers about rab jackets so I decided to invest in one. I did some research and settle on this one. I went with a medium warmth since I live on in a more milded winter climate (pa) but it could withstand the colder temps of vt and ny trips. Well it more than does. It's a super warm, super comfy, and super quality. I love the stuff sack. That goes a long way for cold climbing days.

    As for the fit... It's perfect for my body type. I'm 140lbs, 5'6 with a strong climbers built. I ordered a small and its perfect. I can easily fit a thicker sweater under the cost. It stretches with ease.

    tight hips

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: S
    • Height: 5'2"
    • Weight: 137lbs

    I really like this jacket. It seems super warm (I live in Duluth MN so need something very warm). The hood is nice and big and covers your face partly, and the sleeves are nice and roomy, plus the ends have a tighter cuff that is really comfortable. The upper half/waist up fit me very well - extra room for layers and movement. And I have a bigger bust - 34 DD. Sleeves fit well and are roomy enough. But the lower half/hips are too tight. It just barely zips with a relatively thin sweater underneath. And then it rides up because it's so tight. The length is really nice for coming down and warming the butt. I really wish the hips fit because otherwise it's perfect! I don't think I have huge hips. My measurements are 36" hips 36" bust and 27" waist. The website says the bust is 35" on here and the hips are 37" so something is off. I want to order a medium but am worried the top will then be way too big.

    Blue blue blue Jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'4"
    • Weight: 122lbs

    This is a very comfortable, well made jacket. The wrists are snug but soft. The weight is great. The warmth seems fine so far in cool temperatures if I have a sweater underneath. or a fleece. My only real criticism are the pockets. The side pockets do not reliably hold my phone unless I zip them. The inside pocket is OK but could be bigger. I bought a medium. It fits well except for in the hips. Mine are narrow. Luckily the drawcord helps. The color blue is pretty but I have yet to find just the right color scarf and hat to go with it. I’m very glad I purchased this product and would recommend it.

    Fantastic Jacket!

    This review is from an older version. I purchased this jacket a few years ago and have never regretted it. It is warm and flattering. I love the sleeves' elastic inner cuff, which keeps my wrists warm (which in turns helps my hands stay warm). I've put this through the works, from a 200-mile mostly off-trail backpacking trip in the Wind River Mountains to climbing numerous Colorado 14ers and Pico de Orizaba, plus all sorts of backwoods trips and around town. It has held up beautifully! I am very cold-natured, and it has been a perfect jacket for me.

    I like jackets to fit loosely so I can wear many layers underneath, and even though I am 5'7 and 115#, I like the fit of the Medium. The sleeves on the Small were too short, and the body too shaped to accommodate bulky layers.

    My version is a gorgeous electric turquoise with lime green trim. I absolutely love my Electron! I am counting on it to help me summit Aconcagua (with bulky layers under and a shell over, of course!)

    RAB Down Jacket

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XL
    • Height: 5'0"

    I gave this as a gift. This is what she said, "I would rate this 5 stars for the fit, color, durability and warmth without the weight. It's great for all outdoor sports. I use this for hiking, skiing, and just walking around outside. It seems to fit true to size."

    Excellent jacket for ice/alpine jacket

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    I was searching for a light weight, warm technical mid-layer down jacket for my girlfriend. She wanted the new Rab Zero G jacket (which I have), but Rab unfortunately only makes it for men at the moment. The next best option was the Rab Electron Hooded Down Jacket. I initially considered the Arc'teryx Alpha AR, but it didn't have waist drawcords and is not as durable and hydrophobic as the Rab Electron. Arc'teryx's Alpha SV has those attributes, but was heavier than we wanted for a mid-layer. The Rab Electron Hooded Jacket fits her perfectly in XS (5'2, athletic climber build), keeps her warm, fits under her Arc'teryx shell, and is durable enough to act as a stand-alone jacket. It also packs down nicely in it's own bag and can be easily clipped to the back of her harness while ice climbing. On cold days, she usually adds an additional belay parka (Arc'teryx Dually Belay) over this system for extra warmth. I would highly recommend this jacket.

    Seems awesomely versatile.

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: Runs large

    I was looking for a truly mid weight down jacket, and this fit the bill for me. Flattering cut and more attractive in person than the product photos make it seem. Lofty 800 down in good quantities make this jacket a real step above "down sweater jackets" in terms of warmth, but it is cut well enough and slim enough that you can comfortably put it under a waterproof shell (it's hydrophobic down but I live in the PNW). You could layer with it for extra warmth or use it in more high activity situations without overheating too much. I also tried the Infinity Endurance, and that is a WARM down jacket, a bit overkill for my needs. This jacket hits the sweet spot for me and represents a really good value in terms of gear for that reason. I have to disagree with the other reviewer about pocket size, I don't think the front pockets are very big. Will fit lighter to medium gloves but not very insulated ones. Also didn't think the pockets were very deep for putting your hands into, but the other qualities of the jacket make up for this. Zipper is nice, hood is functional and adjustable. Light weight makes it great for backpacking. I'll be using it in the mountains, at camp and in town. Not sure about the Velcro to fasten the hood down, but I suspect that is a feature for climbers in windy or other conditions (dunno, I don't climb). Anyways, I'm really pleased with the jacket. Runs a bit large in my opinion. I'm hardly a size small in any clothes I own (usually a medium) but the small is a good fit for me. Arm length is good and long.

    Awesome choice for midweight tech jacket

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XS
    • Height: 5'6"
    • Weight: 135lbs

    I'm writing this review off of initial impressions, mostly to help folks with sizing and features.

    I got an XS, and I would describe the fit as similar to the Patagonia slim fit in the same size (maybe a tad smaller), but with slightly longer sleeves. The hood is really roomy and will fit over all but the largest helmets. The jacket feels soft and reasonably light to wear and lights up immediately reflecting your body heat---this thing is warm! My only criticism is I wish the jacket was a little longer at the hem, I have a long torso and raising my arms up lifts the jacket more than I'd like. But I'd call the length adequate, just not ample.

    Other features I really liked:
    -- The cuffs on the sleeves are really awesome, they have a stretchy triangle built into the cuff that softly and automatically snugs the cuff against your wrist. This is the kind of cuff that would go under a powder skirt on a mitt or glove.
    -- There is a velcro tab on the collar for securing the hood; you roll it up and velcro it down using the hood velcro adjuster.
    -- The front pockets are huge!
    -- Comes with a stuff sack, but it's a separate piece (does not stuff into its own pocket).
