Neutrino Pro Jacket
For the most frigid belays and high alpine ascents, make sure to pack along the Rab Neutrino Pro Jacket. Stuffed to the brim with insulation, yet still light on weight and highly packable, this jacket is a must-have for the serious alpine adventurer, thanks to its 800-fill hydrophobic down. Hydrophobic down offers the same warmth you would expect from other down, but dries quicker and retains its loft when wet, giving you assurance against any snow or mixed precipitation you might come across when you're far from home. The adjustable hood fits easily over a climbing helmet for a snug and secure fit on cold multi-pitch belays, and when you need to rock lighter insulation along with a shell, you can stuff the Neutrino Pro into its stuff sack and toss it into your pack until you need it again.

Excellent Belay Parka; Missing 2 Things
- I returned this product before using it
- True to size
The fit is perfect; the down will fully loft without having excessive dead air inside the jacket. It will fit over layers, including your softshell and insulating baselayer, without being constricting at all. The length is great; covers your backside, but can cinch the hem cord and keep it above your waist (or harness) to stay out of the way. The hood easily fits over your helmet and all other layers, and the adjustments and wire stiffener make visibility consistent. The belay zip functions well and the "wrong side" zipper is a non-issue for me since I have other Rab gear and am used to it. Two problems: (1) no dump pocket is a big oversight. You can stuff gloves inside your softshell, sure, but the bulge can be an issue and if they're wet you don't want them against your core. (2) The cuffs have "regular" velcro which will shred fleece layers (like liner gloves). For the coin, these should have had "micro" velcro (or the rubberized ones) which won't trash other gear. Note: this is not a "fashion" coat, and you will look a little ridiculous around town, although warm. This is a purpose-built belay parka for ice and alpine climbing. I ordered it because it was on sale, and I always wanted this particular coat (I love Rab); I wanted to love it, but it's going back. I'm 5'10", 175-180 lbs., 42R jacket and ordered a L.

Certainly the best belay jacket in its price range. Fit is excellent. If you wear arcteryx and. Are familiar with their sizing rab is in that ballpark. Arms are articulated so reaching up jacket hen stays put. I did t keep it base on looks alone. Wanted something a little less puffy so I could wear it on a date as well as the mountain. I like the new trend of putting the deepest part of the down baffles inward toward the body. It leaves a much cleaner siloette and warms up faster. The Nilas does that. But the Nilas has bad fit typical of MH these days. If you are looking for a warm belay coat in the under 400$ range it can’t be beat period.
