Product details


The Women's Microlight Alpine Jacket from Rab takes the theme of lightweight down garments a stage further. Constructed from incredibly lightweight yet durable Pertex Microlight 30 denier outer shell, the Microlight Alpine Jacket at only 375g still packs in a heart warming 140g of superior quality European goose down insulation with a fill power of 750+ which is coated with a Nikwax hydrophobic solution that makes the down carry on insulating even it it becomes damp, just like synthetic insulation only lighter and warmer.

 

Grafted onto the collar, the fully insulated down hood of the Women's Microlight Alpine Jacket offers a greater degree of protection from the elements, and just like the rest of the jacket, being specifically cut for women, is constructed using mini stitch-through baffles to stabilise the position of the down. Two zipped hand warmer pockets provide a welcome refuge for frozen digits, and the single zipped chest pocket caters for any small essential items.

750 Fill Power Down
750 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.
Adjustable Hood
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.
Hydrophobic Down
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.
Lightweight
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.
Stitched-Through construction
Stitched-Through Construction: down garments and equipment constructed using a stitch through construction which helps keep down in place and reduce clumping. This construction is used mostly on mid to low weight down items.
Pertex
Pertex develop new, lighter, stronger and more technical fabrics for brands to use on their outdoor clothing and equipment. Pertex is used on items which range as far as down sleeping bags to lightweight waterproofs. Pertex have a range of fabrics which each has it's own area of expertise.
DWR
DWR. Durable Water Repellent, is a coating added to fabrics to help add to their water repellency and shed water and snow more effectively.
Packs Small
This garment Packs down Small and comes with it's own stuff sack so it packs small to take up less room in your pack and can be easily accessed in case of a downpour.
Rip Stop
Rip Stop is a lightweight nylon fabric with interwoven rip-stop reinforcement threads in a cross hatch pattern. It's woven with a coarse, strong warp and filling yarns at intervals so that tears will not spread. Rip-stop is used in construction of hot air balloons and yacht sails but in this case very effectively on outdoor clothing.
YKK Zips
YKK Zips are used for their robustness and exceptional quality. YKK uses locking teeth to create a barrier between you and the elements.
Pertex Microlight
Pertex Microlight offers some of the softest and lightest fabric in the Pertex range; essential when grams and ounces count.

    I had been looking for a multi-purpose jacket to take travelling and camping for a few months now. I finally settled on the Rab Microlight Jacket having done significant online research and reading multiple reviews. I've had the jacket for a couple of weeks now and am super impressed with both it's quality and performance. The jacket feels really rugged (I'm always concerned that down jackets may be a bit flimsy) and it's really warm! I can't wait to test it in colder temperatures and camping conditions. In terms of fit, the jacket is really comfortable. I was concerned about sizing as many reviews refer to its smaller fit, however it fits me perfectly and looks great on - not too bulky. I am generally a size Small and ordered the same. I can easily get a couple of layers under this jacket without feeling constricted. Overall, I am really happy with my Rab. It's early days but I can already see the value in my purchase and know it will get a lot of use over the coming years. Would recommend!
