Purchased this jacket as I was sick of removing feathers that continually leached out of another down jacket from a different manufacturer. This one does not shed the down at all staying inside the jacket and doing the job it is supposed to do, keeping me warm. Well made with good deep pockets and very comfortable cuffs. Excellent fit over a large range of movement. The zips work well and the flap behind the main zip eliminates heat escaping. The hood does a good job the only moan is that I wish Rab wouldn't insist on making all their hoods helmet compatible. It means that the hood is too large for 99%of the time unless adjusted at the back. Having said that this really is a great jacket and for the level of performance it provides I wouldn't mark it down for what is just a personal preference.

By far the best jacket I’ve ever owned. Bought it last winter and I’ve worn it most days outside of summer. Even recently in -5 temperatures you really don’t need more than a T-shirt underneath while walking. The fabric repels dirt really well and can be cleaned with a quick wipe.
It repels water well but anything more than a shower and you’ll need a waterproof.
It can be worn on the mountainside and also in the city. Excellent value for money and even more so when reduced in price.

Really warm, standing on a station platform in Jan, with the wind blowing, just wearing a shirt and this jacket yet super toasty.
Very light, good elastic cuffs.

Bought for my 17year old Son and worn in the Alps for a week skiing. It didn't snow so not sure on the waterproofing however, it was extremely warm with a base and mid layer with the weather at -7. Cannot recommend enough even with the high price which did make me doubt the purchase.

A very stylish and warm jacket. I'm normally a medium , but the Large was a much better fit as the medium was way too small

Super Warm Compact Traveller (Men's Microlight Alpine Jacket 2018)
This is my first down jacket and it was purchased for a December trip to Iceland to see the Northern Lights.
I wore the jacket out in -5 degrees with quite a wind, so the wind chill factor would have taken that temperature lower.
For most of the 7 days in Iceland, I wore one 200 weight merino base layer, a t-shirt, the microlight alpine jacket, plus a gore-tex shell coat on the exterior and this kept me nice and warm (provided one is also wearing suitable gloves, a hat, trousers, woollen socks and suitable walking boots/shoes)
I was moving most of the time whilst outside, so it was absolutely ideal.
As I was photographing the Northern Lights, I literally had periods of 45 minutes plus of standing around in -6/-7 with a icey wind as well, at two locations per night, to which I added a second merino base layer, plus a ski jacket I borrowed, over the microlight alpine jacket. This kept my core nice and warm.
For 99% of the time, provided one is moving outside, i.e walking, this jacket is perfect.
If one was regularly standing around outside, I would recommend the next model up, the 800 weight 'expedition' feather down - but this is quite abit more expensive and less compactable if you often travel lightly (as I do)
All in all, I am absolutely delighted with this jacket, which I plan on using with my gore-tex shell jacket and I look forward to many years of use.

Great Quality item
This is a lovely looking jacket that is very snug and oozes quality. The rust coloured one I bought is high viz too, which is great if you're in mountain terrain. But it looks up market and great if you're out and about in town too. This jacket will make you feel special, believe me.
