A traditionally styled, durable down jacket for cold weather trekking and backpacking.

Rab's Ascent Jacket combines a water resistant Pertex® Quantum Pro outer with hydrophobic duck down insulation, keeping you warm whilst maintaining its loft even if it gets damp.

Cut to Rab's 'regular fit', it leaves room for multiple layers underneath if you're in extremely cold conditions, yet it's also very effective when worn over just a baselayer tee.

The stitch-through baffle construction ensures that the moisture-repelling down insulation doesn't spread or bunch, preventing 'cold spots' from forming.

  • Pertex® Quantum Pro outer fabric
  • Pertex® Quantum inner
  • 650FP R.D.S. Certified European Duck Down (275g/10oz in size 12)
  • Rab® fluorocarbon free Hydrophobic down developed in conjunction with Nikwax®
  • Stitch-through construction
  • Helmet compatible down filled hood with flexible polymer peak
  • Separate down filled collar with tricot lining
  • 2-way YKK® VISLON® front zip, internal insulated zip baffle, chin guard
  • 2 YKK® VISLON® zipped tricot lined hand-warmer pockets
  • 1 YKK® zipped internal security pocket
  • Anti-snag hook and loop adjustable cuffs, hem drawcord
  • Stuff sack for easy packing and carrying

Developed in conjunction with Nikwax®, Rab's fluorocarbon free Hydrophobic Down dries fast, retains its loft and absorbs less water than traditional down. The Durable Water Repellent (DWR) finish on each individual down filament protects from perspiration, condensation and precipitation and maintains loft and insulation in cold, damp conditions.

Nikwax Hydrophobic Down™ filled items give increased performance compared to conventional untreated down in equivalent conditions, and continue to be effective in conditions where conventional untreated down filled items fail. If you're regularly outside in cold conditions, you'll benefit from the lightweight insulation and water resistance of Nikwax Hydrophobic Down™.

Good while it lasts

I have recently bought this RAB coat on Boxing Day 2020 to be exact and it has lost a lot of feathers and has gone flat. I wore the coat once in the rain and it has gone flat which I’m not happy about

Best coat ever!

I’ve never spent this much on a coat but it’s well worth the money. I suffer from poor circulation and get really cold in winter, this coat has made such a difference this year by keeping me warm.

The most expensive coat I have bought but oh so worth it. Never been as warm before. It feels like you could wear it up Everest. It also fits well and looks good.

Great jacket

I've never spent so much on a jacket before but this was worth every penny. Longer fit and it's like putting on a duvet. Very happy with purchase. It's light but so warm and packs small. Would definitely recommend.

Great Jacket

This jacket is a great fit, great look and really good quality. It don’t let the heat in at all and is really comfortable. The hood stays up unlike a lot of jackets I’ve had, so definitely a bonus. I think the quality of this has given me confidence that it will last for a very long time.

It’s like wearing a quilt

I have never owned a Rab jacket before and I’m pleased that I chose this one. It is a snug fit and is very warm. The length is good too and thick around the collar which is nice. This is the warmest jacket I have ever bought and hopefully will last me for many years.

Amazing jacket

This jacket is just fantastic! I bought it for a trip to norway and it didn't let me down. Its warm and a good fit, the size 8 was perfect and allowed me to fit an etra layer underneath with no problems. I absolutely love this jacket, I would defo recommend!

I am so glad I spent the money on this coat, it is warmer than I could have expected - no need to layer up underneath! It's also really comfortable, feels like you're walking out in a duvet/sleeping bag - I love it!

The only coat you'll need

I am in love with my new Rab jacket- so warm, it creates a puffy layer of air to keep you cosy. The soft fleece around the neck and in the pockets make it extra nice. It comes down nicely at the back so not to short. Its not a fitted figure hugging jacket but still not overly bulky. The pack bag is perfect for trips. The hood is big so great for rough weather but is un-detachable.
