Ultralight, packable and reliably warm, Rab’s Microlight Alpine Women’s Jacket is perfect for fast paced mountain expeditions where every gram counts. The updated design features a fresh new aesthetic and recycled material; a Pertex Quantum shell that safeguards the wearer against the elements and premium down insulation reclaimed from garments most likely headed to a landfill. The end product is just as high in performance as the original but manufactured more sustainably, so you can feel good about what you wear.

Recycled Pertex Quantum ripstop face fabric is lightweight, windproof and abrasion resistant
DWR coating on the face fabric encourages rain to bead off the material in light rain
Down insulation: 145g of 700 fill power Recycled down from P.U.R.E “Global Recycled Standard” GRS down, which is treated to maintain the loft and therefore the warmth when the air is moist, and to speed up the drying time if the down gets damp.
Zoned baffles use a stitch through construction preventing the insulation shifting
Low profile down fill adjustable hood prevents you loosing heat through your head. A stiff wired peak helps the hood retain its shape
Two zipped hand pockets and one zipped chest pocket on the left hand side
Stretch binding on the cuffs close the fit around your wrists
Stretch drawcord on the hem cinches the jacket around your body to retain warmth

700 Fill Power Down is high quality down which offers lightweight warmth and low pack size. High quality down gives lower weight but higher heat retention than lower fill power down.
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.
Lightweight products feature lightweight materials and constructions to reduce the user’s load and aid mobility. Lightweight clothing products are thin and provide very little or no cushioning and insulation. They are best used for high-intensity or warm-weather pursuits, or employed as part of a layering system.
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.
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.
