The Rab Womens Asylum Jacket is a tough and durable winter down insulated cragging jacket perfectly suited to keeping you warm on those crispy cold days bouldering or climbing, but equally could be used as your go to pre/post activity jacket.
650 FP European Duck down provides plenty of warmth and is contained in a stitch through construction. Hydrophobic down provides better performance in damp conditions. This is achieved by washing the down in a Nikwax coating in the early stages of production. This down is NOT waterproof, but it will retain its loft for longer if it gets damp, and will dry faster. The outer fabric is Pertex Quantum which features excellent tear resistance. The lining is nylon giving it a smooth and comfortable feel and also making it able to easily slide over layers.
Internal Power Stretch Pro cuffs keep your wrists warm and prevent draughts going up the sleeves. The hood is down filled and has a hook and loop volume adjuster so you can really keep the heat trapped inside the jacket. The front YKK zip is two way making it perfect for belaying in, plus with it being flat it is low volume, so it sits comfortably when worn under a harness. There's plenty of storage space with two low volume zipped brushed fleece hand warmer pockets and two internal large mesh storage pockets.
The Rab Womens Asylum Jacket looks flattering and feels lovely and cozy and a big plus is you don't end up looking like a Michelin woman in it. A must jacket to have this winter and versatile enough to use for keeping the winters chill at bay.
