Warmth and weather resistance in a slim, lightweight and very comfortable package - now available in web exclusive colours.

The Rab Microlight Alpine Jacket couples effective down insulation inside with weather-resistant Pertex Microlight outer fabric in a streamlined package that gives you the maximum warmth with minimal weight.

Roomy, zipped pockets give you ample room for essentials, and the whole jacket can be packed away into the supplied stuff sack (in some older versions it stuffs into its own pocket) for easy storage or to make a usable pillow.

Rab's fluorocarbon free Hydrophobic Down  is their usual high quality European down, but treated with a water-repelling coating so it's more water resistant and will maintain its loft. It performs more effectively in damp conditions than untreated down - it absorbs less water, dries faster, retains loft and is fluorocarbon free. Stitch-through baffle construction helps to keep the down in place, preventing cold spots from developing.

Its narrow-baffled construction prevents the down fill from spreading or bunching and gives maximum loft, and the fixed insulated hood (with positionable peak) gives you supreme protection from winter weather.

Clean lines and a slim silhouette mean that the Microlight Alpine works very well as a layering piece under a waterproof shell, for climbing or other alpine pursuits - but it's equally at home if you're lightweight backpacking, or just wearing it day-to-day in cold conditions.

Brilliant, 20 April 2016
By Woody (Stockport)
I wanted a lightweight, warm jacket for walking and running my 3 Scottish Deerhounds. Had been wearing layers of bulky fleeces and returning from walks all hot and sweaty. This jacket is perfect. Stylish, comfortable, light and really warm. I decided on the red and am so pleased with it. I'm warm with just a tee shirt on & the deep pockets are great for storing pooh bags, when required. An added bonus, I found it cheaper on a different website, so go outdoors matched the price with an extra 10% off. Fantastic coat & fantastic bargain.

Excellent cool All rounder, 13 April 2016
By Pedla (Southampton)
I have had this jacket for 8 months now. It is super light weight and packs down to nearly nothing. It looks cool enough to wear around the town and will keep you warm enough for regular conditions.

I am currently backpacking in South America and it is ideal to travel with.

I found a cheaper price online and got Go Outdoors to price match which they also beat it by another 10%. ended up getting it at a bargain price.

Light Weight, 13 March 2016
By Kato (South Wales)
Excellent down jacket. It's lighter (and less warm) than traditional (bulkier) down jackets. I'm 6ft/12st and Large fitted well.

My only minor complaint is the front fastening around the neck comes up to above chin height (compared to unhooded jackets where collar would be under your chin). This means it's not quite so comfortable with the collar done up with the hood down. It's probably normal for a hooded style duvet.

Mine came with a separate stuff sack and drawcord hem - some (maybe older) versions didn't have either.

I'm very happy and would recommend it.

Should be on everyone's kit bag, 06 March 2016
By Yardstick (South Coast)
Having tried on an endless amount of down jackets, which seem to have become fashionable as well as practical, I was very happy with the overall feel and fit of the Rab as well as the appearance.

With a tshirt and a thin mid layer like a 3/4 zip fleece this is a comfortable coat to be wear and almost feels like you aren't wearing anything. Certainly doesn't feel like it'll be that warm but when you take it out you quickly realise it is excellent at stopping wind and keeping warmth in.

The chest zip pocket is a great feature for keeping your MP3 player or phone inside - not all down jackets I looked at had one. For me it's an additional pocket I love to have on any coat or mid later fleece.

The only draw back I've found is I had to go one size bigger than I normally would have liked to get both the length and sleeve length that was right for me, but I'm tall at 6'3" so this is often the case.

I would absolutely suggest a trip to the store to try on and make your purchase.

Tested in good range of temperatures and I've not been cold or overheated excessively so I'd say the materials are spot on here.
