A very warm, slim and lightweight weather-resistant gilet that packs down to a tiny size.
Made using 110g/750 fill hydrophobic european goose down wrapped in a Pertex Microlight shell, the Rab Microlight Vest
is a very useful mid or outer layer that's ideal for all fast and light activities in wintry conditions.
Its Pertex Microlight outer fabric is tough and abrasion resistant, and will help you shrug off wind and light rain, while the nylon inner keeps you drier and more comfortable. Narrow baffling prevents the goose down fill from spreading or bunching, ensuring better warmth all round.
Rab's fluorocarbon free Hydrophobic Down
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
The Microlight vest boasts 2 zipped hand-warmer pockets and a zipped chest pocket, with an insulated zip baffle to further minimise heat loss. The whole gilet 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.

Another quality Rab product, 12 March 2016
By Simon (Sandbach)
You get what you pay for with Rab. A really warm, lightweight and great fitting gillet. Looks as good on the high street as it does in the hills. I worn this on a few walks now and have not been disappointed wearing it on its own or as a mid layer under a waterproof. You hardly know you've got it on yet it's so warm.

I looked at a lot of gillets but bought this one due to it's warm rating, pockets, and lightness.
My only negative is the price - it's expensive but you do get what you pay for.
I may get a very thin cotton one without any filling for days when it's not cold! This one will keep you warm and as it's thinnish is ideal for wearing under a Barbour coat or similar if it's cold and wet.
Rab mens microlight vest, 02 April 2014

Bought the full microlight jacket at the beginning of the winter and, although weather wasn't too cold, was warm able to move freely and did not have a problem with breathability. So impressed I bought the vest, and look forward to years of comfort....

i know its for men but i tried it on and it fitted perfect, really comfy and warm , and not too bulky, brilliant for the cold days when i go to watch my beloved Huddersfield giants,
a bit expensive but worth it , for the warmth.
Fab Rab gilet, 22 November 2013
By Nell (Birmingham)
I so love this warm,light gilet ! Although it is intended for men , I love the fit on me and the lovely deep pockets - especially, the top pocket.
The only reason I have given a 4 star is because the feathers do work their way through the odd seams. I don't mind too much.
