    Durable down.

    The Rab Men's Microlight Down Jacket is lightweight and stylish, and it shatters cold weather with its extreme protection and warmth. The trim silhouette allows room for light layering but easily stands alone with its 750-fill Nikwax Hydrophobic European goose down. From chucking massive snowballs to destroying the moguls on your skis, the durable Pertex Microlight face fabric with its DWR coating keeps your body heat where it should be. And since you’re out in Mother Nature's playground most of the time, it helps that this jacket remains tough and flexible with its nylon ripstop lining and mini stitch-through baffle construction.

    Comfortable upper body, tight waist

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

    I originally bought a Large based on the reviews, but BC actually ended up sending me a Medium. It was a blessing in disguise as the chest and shoulders fit great throughout, but I do agree with other reviewers that the hem is fairly snug around the waist.
    I used the jacket for a recent trip to Banff where it was in the 30's throughout the trip. With just a baselayer and jacket I was more than comfortable hiking and standing around taking in Canada's beauty.
    The only down side is that I noticed a couple spots near the inside seams where some feathers were leaking already.

    Armpits Beware

    Great overall quality jacket. Unfortunately the armpits are cut too high and dig in. Tried a medium and large, but both had the same issue. Might work for someone, but not for me. I have a Rab Xenon X in Large and don't have this problem. I'll keep trying since Rab products are quality made.

    New favorite winter jacket.

    I've been eying this jacket for quite a while, and I'm glad I didn't miss out on it! I love the colors of this jacket and the overall fit and finish. As others have stated, it does run a touch on the small side, and I'm glad I went with the large in case I want to wear something heavier underneath.
    Grab one while they're still in stock!

    Love this jacket!

    I love this jacket. My other puffy is a Patagonia Down Sweater whose best days are behind it. The RAB feels like a better (tougher) shell and the down just seems to stay in place better keeping me warmer. The ONLY reason I knocked it down a star is due to the fit. I'm 5'8" 160 lbs athletic build. With a 41" chest and 33" waist the lower hem is just too tight. My chest fits...mostly, the arms are great, but the jacket tends to just stop at my waist. Maybe if my torso was a few inches longer it wouldn't matter as much but the jacket kind of bunches up a bit. Would recommend it to anyone who is a longer/lankier build!

    Very Happy with my Purchase

    • Size Bought: Large
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 175lbs

    I ordered this and an Arc'terx Cerum LT for comparison
    I preferred the fit of the RAB and the inclusion of a chest pocket. I'm 5'11'' 175lbs size 42 suit , 15.5x33 dress shirt and 33" waist. The Large fit me perfectly as a baselayer and I'm able to use my Marmot Shield as a 2nd waterproof , windproof layer if I need to. I preferred the fit of the RAB to the Arc'terx and I preferred the 30D pertex fabric used on the RAB.
    Lastly the combination of blue with the red zipper is fantastic.

    Runs small

      I had to return this jacket as it runs very small. I am an athletic 6'2", 220lbs and wear L or XL depending on the brand. I ordered XL. It was too small in the shoulders and torso. The sleeve length was the only part that fit.

      Armpits...

      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: Medium
      • Height: 5'10"
      • Weight: 172lbs

      So, the jacket itself seems like it is constructed well and would be decently warm. However, I was unable to even test the jacket as the design of the jacket makes it completely uncomfortable to wear. The medium fits me everywhere except for in the armpits. The armpits dig into you, making the jacket annoying to wear....I'm a medium in all other jackets, and this jacket fit perfectly besides this design flaw.

      It's pretty good

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: Large
      • Height: 6'0"
      • Weight: 180lbs

      Fit: I'm a solid medium in Arc' and Patagonia, but went with the large here based on customer reviews and the fact that I have broader shoulders. I'm glad I did from the chest up. The torso, then, is a little baggier. If it's built to be a close to the skin layer it is for narrower builds. It still works fine under my medium Arc' shell and I can throw it over most other layers I have like a Pat. R1 or even an Atom SV in the coldest situations.

      Construction: The construction and materials are as outstanding as other reviews have claimed. After half a winters season of regular use for alpine, ski, travel and casual I have only seen a few feathers come through the Pertex fabric which is soft in the hand and quiet. The collar is a good weight and comfy. The zip hand warmer pockets are massive... Nice for cramming stuff in on the fly, but loose quite a bit of heat, and you can feel it. Good-I have used them as a heat dumping feature. Bad- loosing core heat when warming my hands. Stuff sack - WTF... It's just another thing to hold onto. I've stuffed it into its own pocket and sleeve so far too. Double hem adjustments are nice because you can adjust with either hand. The pulls, cords, and plastic cord fasteners are at a nicely considered weight - fitting for a lightweight piece, but not too dainty. The cuffs are tight enough to function without any issue and are easily pulled up over the forearms when necessary. European left-sided zipper. It is crazy light and is proving very sturdy!

      It's easily warm enough into the low 30's with only a T underneath.

      Chilling with the boy

      Took this jacket to Quebec. Needed it too as temperatures dropped and the wind picked up. Was probably a bit too much for the climate controlled lobby, but it is so comfortable, I wear it everywhere.

      Chilling with the boy

      Love this jacket

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: L
      • Height: 6'3"
      • Weight: 210lbs

      I actually own two. I own one with a hood (previous generation, XL) and wifey got me one without for an early xmas gift (L). It's super light and super warm. Perfect for shoving into the last nook in a suitcase or a backpack. I've kept might warm with this jacket under a shell (or over it) on many an outdoor activity from climbing to skiing to backpacking.
      it goes everywhere with me.

      The zippered pockets are great without adding too much weight. Gives you some peace of mind when putting a valuable in there. The large fits me like a glove in the sleeves, which doesn't leave too much room for layers. But around the torso, there is space for a vest, even a down vest. I can wear a thick sweater under it, but maybe not a base layer, mid layer, and a shell (due to sleeves).
      The XL goes over everything with no complaints but isn't too baggy that I look ridiculous when i don't wear multiple layers.

      Great jacket, lightweight but tight

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: Medium
      • Height: 5'10"
      • Weight: 170lbs

      Really like the jacket. Lightweight but seems durable. Warm almost immediately after putting it on. Bought the medium based on other reviews, but it was too tight around the armpits and across the chest. I'm 5'10", 170lbs, with athletic build. Also tight at the waist and I am size 32 pant.

      Lightweight, Trim Down Jacket

      • Height: 6'0"
      • Weight: 165lbs

      This is a very lightweight, trim down jacket/sweater. I've either purchased or tried on about six similar models and prefer the RAB for several reasons. The fit is "trim" but has sufficient fill in the jacket to provide significant warmth. Secondly, the exterior is lightweight, nevertheless it seems to provide adequate protection from the environment and prevents the feathers from escaping. Third, the neck is warm and sits at the correct height to provide good protection from the wind. If I had to list a few issues, the zipper zips on the opposite side and the neck is clearly built for a more "stout necked" individual. Nevertheless, if you tend to wear high necked sweaters, turtlenecks or scarves, it would appear to be the correct height. Overall, I would rate this as one of the top microlight jackets offered and the "twilight" color with contrasting red looks terrific. Moreover, the Medium fits my 6'0" 165 lb. frame quite well.

      Nice Jacket

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: large
      • Height: 6'0"
      • Weight: 185lbs

      This is a good-looking, well-made jacket. Good for cool, not cold weather. It is a bit tight in the sleeves. I understand that the trim fit is stylish, but it's trimmer in the sleeves than it is anywhere else. Just another inch would make it more comfortable without hurting the look.
