Based on the popular Rab Microlight Alpine Jacket the Womens Microlight Alpine Long provides improved protection making it the perfect longer cut, mid or outer layer for those demanding exceptional levels of warmth with minimal weight and a neat compact pack size. This is a great piece of kit for the adventure racer, mountain walker or the lightweight alpinist.
The outer is made of Pertex Quantum fabric which is very lightweight and highly breathable and windproof and is DWR treated. The 750 fill power (US) European goose down is held closely in place by stitched through narrow baffles, ensuring enduring warmth for the wearer. Hydrophobic down is also 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 fit is slim and with a longer length for extended warmth. The down filled hood is adjustable and features a laminated brim and a flexible polmer peak, making it ideal when you need to batten down the hatches. The cuffs are elasticated and the hem features dual drawcords so it will keep a close fit, preventing spindrift sneaking inside. All the zips on the jacket are YKK reverse coil making the jacket look sleek. There is plenty of storage with one zipped chest pocket and two zipped harness compatible hand pockets. The jacket also comes supplied with its own stuff sack for ease of packing and protective transportation.

This lightweight jacket offers the triple benefits of warmth, fit and coverage. The extra length covers the hips and the drawstring adjustment in the hem allows individualisation of the fit. The padding is sleek and effective and continued into the adjustable hood. This is my first Rab jacket and I look forward to wearing it in the winter months to come.
