Alpine experts Rab know a thing or two about extreme mountain conditions, and their skilled development team are experts in designing garments to combat them. The Electron Pro is a prime example. The jacket is packed full of ethically sourced goose down with a hydrophobic finish for resilient loft retention - striking the perfect balance between warmth and weight – whilst the Pertex Quantum Pro outer with DWR finish keeps the elements at bay. Other key features include an adjustable, helmet compatible hood with stiffened peak, harness friendly YKK® zipped hand pockets and stretch panel cuffs.

800 Fill Power Down is at the top end of the market, offering exceptional warmth to weight ratios. 800 fill power is rare and expensive but gives expedition level performance and heat retention.
Garments with an Adjustable Hood feature draw cords with toggles or other adjustment mechanisms, to change the size and shape of the hood to better fit the head of the wearer. Such hoods usually adjust independently around the head, and around the face, for a snug fit and optimum weather protection.
Helmet Compatible jackets have hoods that are compatible for use with a helmet. The hood allows four-way movement so never inhibits your vision while reaching or stretching in awkward positions.
Down has been treated in a water-repellent solution to enhance down water resistance, improve dry time, and enable loft to be retained far longer in wet conditions than untreated down. In short, hydrophobic down is not as sensitive to getting wet, so is a great improvement over untreated down in unpredictable real-world conditions.
Pertex Quantum technology is the lightest of the Pertex fabrics and it shows the best strength to weight ratio. Pertex Quantum is down proof and withstands the abuse of hardcore use.
DWR. Durable Water Repellent, is a coating added to fabrics to help add to their water repellency and shed water and snow more effectively.
The Responsible Down Standard (RDS) aims to ensure that down and feathers come from animals that have not been subjected to any unnecessary harm.
Water Resistant - This product has good resistance to the penetration of water.
Windproof - these fabrics are great for keeping you warm. They work by weaving the fabric very tightly, so that the gaps between the threads are too small for air to pass through at speed.
Recycled Content - This product reduces it's environmental impact by using a % of recycled materials.
