Why We Like The Electron Pro Jacket

Offering the perfect blend of low weight, warmth, and protection, the Rab Electron Pro Jacket fends off cold weather so we can continue climbing all year long. The Electron Pro excels on winter ice climbs, summer alpine endeavors, and shoulder-season multi-pitches.

Light and lofty 800-fill down insulation equips the Electron Pro with mid-weight warmth, and Nikwax's hydrophobic water-resistant treatment helps the down retain its lofty warmth even when wet. Rab wrapped up this protective insulation with Pertex's highly water-resistant, breathable, and wind-repellent Quantum Pro fabric. The hood cinches down over beanies or helmets with ease, and we love how Rab added a wired peak to stay out of eyesight while you belay. Rab also included a stuff sack for compact storage in your backpack.

It was this or the Thorium. I'm really happy with my choice, this jacket is great and then some. The cuffs work just perfectly with gauntlet gloves/mittens. These might be my favorite cuffs on a puffy of all time. Construction is perfect. It's generously filled, very warm, and the Pertex Quantum Pro is excellent for where I live and play. The little extra of the Pro hasn't let any moisture in through some sloppy wet snow or sleet. And it's sharp looking with a very nice fit! I will happily wear this for years to come. A+, great job by Rab.

I chose to buy the men's puffy rather than the woman's version as I didn't want a slim fit - I wanted a large puffy that worked as durable jacket to wear around camp and to belay in during cold springs/ falls and winters. It's the perfect sleeve length and a great fit with or without layers. I have a really nice light alpine puffy with 800 fill but it's so light it isn't very abrasion resistant. I got this puffy to help make the life of my alpine puffy last a long time. The material on this is great - won't be worried about it in abrasion hazard abundant areas like jtree. Seems really well constructed, great material, good loft, super stoked on the quality (but also should be for the price point). The dual zipper is really convenient for belaying bc you can stay fully zipped to your chin while zipping the lower zipper up for the belay loop/ rope. It has one inside zipped pocket that I keep the stuff sack in but is also great for an iphone. When zipped and pulled down with out the lower zipper zipped up it is a bit tight around my bum, but I don't mind it bc I rarely pull it down past by butt. I honestly love this jacket so much that I've started wearing it around town during the winter bc it's really cozy and easy to throw on top of anything to stay warm (living in Truckee so it gets cold). Highly recommend. I did get this during black Friday so it was a lot more budget friendly, and warranted the investment when I already have a warm puffy. I haven't used this as an active puffy/ warmth layer, and don't really intend to. I wouldn't bring it winter backpacking (I'm a bit of a weight weenie bc I prefer steep and long mileage stuff), and wouldn't do any intense hiking where you really got your cardio going. I prefer more breathable layers when I'm being really active in the cold. Could be okay as a summit jacket if you don't mind it taking up the space in your day pack.

Its very warm and good detail. The color of Ink was darker than the photo. I have ordered for Medium initially as my husband normally wear Medium but the waist area was not stretching material and too tight to close the zipper. I had to exchange to Large size which fits him ok.
