The Rab Microlight Vest is a lightweight versatile down piece that can be worn as a light outer or as part of your layering system. Featuring a redesign for winter 2018 is now has an improved fit and pocket design.
It has a Pertex Quantum inner and outer, Quantum is a very light fabric which is highly breathable, downproof and windproof. The 750 Fill Power (US) goose down will ensure enduring core warmth for the wearer. Hydrophobic down is used to provide better performance in damp conditions. This down is NOT waterproof, but will retain its loft for longer if it gets damp, and will dry faster.
The armholes are lycra bound for comfort and freedom of movement. Despite being lightweight, the Microlight Vest still has plenty of features including a baffled reverse coil front zip with a chin guard, giving extra protection and comfort. The two reverse coil zipped hand warmer pockets are harness friendly and a dual hem drawcord helps to keeps the vest in place and the weather out. The Rab Microlight Vest comes supplied with its own stuff sack for ease of packing and protective transportation.

This is a favourite top of mine for belaying, skiing, winter bouldering, and, lets face it, cold days doing absolutely anything. I often wear it skiing over a Rab Strata Hoodie. Hydrophobic down is a huge improvement and it really keeps its loft in damp days. It looks great too.
