A very warm, slim and lightweight weather-resistant gilet that packs down to a tiny size.

Made using 90g/750 fill 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.

The Microlight vest boasts 2 zipped handwarmer pockets and a zipped chest pocket (which doubles a a stow pocket), and an insulated zip baffle to further minimise heat loss.

  • Pertex® Microlight outer, 100% nylon ripstop inner
  • 750FP European Goose Down (90g in size Large)
  • Mini stitch-through baffle construction
  • YKK front zip, internal insulated zip baffle, chin guard
  • 2 YKK zipped hand warmer pockets, 1 YKK zipped chest pocket (integrated stuff sack for easy packing and carrying)
  • Lycra® bound armholes, hem drawcord
  • Slim fit

Warm, 05 June 2014
By RJM (Cardiff)
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
By Rod (Rainhill)
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....

brilliant, 01 March 2014
By julie (huddersfield)
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.

Essential Autumn & Winter, 19 November 2013
By CuriousOrange (Milton Keynes)
Good fit and very snug considering weight. Makes a great Autumn accompaniment to just a t shirt or mid layer under a coat when colder. I use mine under Barbour bike jacket great combination. Pricey but well worth it.
