The Rab Valiance Jacket is a waterproof down jacket designed to keep you warm and dry throughout the winter season, no matter what the weather throws at you. Constructed with a Pertex Shield outer that benefits from being DWR treated and has fully taped seams, the down is fully protected from any snow, rain or moisture. The Pertex Quantum lining is comfortable and smooth to allow the jacket to easily slide on over other layers. 800 FP of European Goose Down is contained using bonded narrow baffle box wall construction. The down is Hydrophobic for a better performance in damp conditions. This is achieved by washing in a Nikwax coating in the early stages of production.
Both the hood and cuffs are filled with Pyrotec synthetic insulation which preserves its insulating properties better than down can when compressed or damp. The hood is helmet compatible and it features a wired peak for foul weather protection. The front zip is a YKK Vislon with an internal zip baffle preserving heat retention. Two YKK Aquaguard zipped hand warmer pockets and a YKK single internal zipped pocket are provided to keep your valuables safe and warm in. There's also drawcord adjustments at the hood and hem so you can easily cinch it up with gloves on to keep the draughts out. It also comes with its own stuff sack for easy packing and protective transportation.

Customer Reviews of Rab Valiance Jacket
This is a wonderfully light, warm jacket. Suits my husbands needs perfectly. Plenty of pockets and not bulky at all. When looking for a jacket he found so many that were overly large, but not this one. The fitting of the hood is excellent and does not move once in place. A good length even though he is tall, sleeves are a good fit. Perfect, could not have wished for more. Good price from Facewest and definitely worth buying.
Got a good deal on the price of this Jacket so snapped it up. Only wore it a few times but its really nice and warm, and waterproofing seems to be fine during the only bad rainy spell I've had it on for, time will tell. Large for the sizing so if you are not sure try one on before ordering. I'm between med/large normally but the medium is big enough for a lightweight jacket or thick jumper underneath with room to spare! Plenty of arm and shoulder room. Love it so far, bring on the cold.
