The Rab Womens Altus Vest is a lightweight synthetically insulated vest designed for keeping your core warm in cold and damp environments. This makes it perfect for all year round UK use and versatile enough for numerous activities.
It is constructed from a lightweight and windproof Pertex Quantum outer which is DWR treated so it will repel light rain and moisture. The lining fabric is a Hyperlite nylon rip-stop so it easily glides on over layers. Cirrus insulation is contained in stitched through mini baffles and provides excellent breathability and warmth to weight - making it an ideal mid or outer layer. Cirrus insulation combines the benefits of down with synthetic fill. It is in fact a synthetic insulation that unlike others has not been formed into a sheet. Instead it remains a loose water resistant down like fibre that expands to form a "cloud of warmth". It will deliver the same warmth for its weight as 600 fill power duck down. As well as great lofting properties Cirrus is very compressible as well as robust. It's also very fast drying allowing Cirrus to get back up to its full insulation potential a lot faster than Hydrophobic down or synthetic insulation that is formed into a sheet.
The YKK Vislon front zip is complete with an insulated baffle and a chin guard for comfort. There are two hand warmer pockets, the left one doubling up as a stuff sack and one internal zipped security pocket. The arm holes are elasticated and the hem features a drawcord making the vest perfect for keeping your cores warmth trapped inside.
