A lightweight, windproof down jacket built for any kind of activity in the moderate winter cold.
A modern staple, the Rab Microlight Alpine Jacket uses hydrophobic down insulation inside weather-resistant Pertex Quantum fabric, in a streamlined package that gives you very effective warmth with minimal weight.
Roomy, zipped pockets make it practical, and easy packability (the whole jacket goes into the supplied stuff sack) makes it a must for any adventure (you get a comfy pillow!).
The narrow stitch-through 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 warm layer under a waterproof shell, for climbing or other alpine pursuits - but you'll also appreciate it if you're lightweight backpacking, or just wearing it day-to-day in cold conditions.
Micro stitch-through baffle construction
Adjustable hood with laminated brim and flexible polymer peak
Diverted hood baffle lines for good anatomical fit
YKK reverse coil front zip with insulated zip baffle and chin guard
Coat is warm and at times ive been to hot with it on. I do question the quality and how robust the jacket is for everyday wearing. Feathers have come through the material and created holes, the material is also not tough enough for an active wear coat. I wear a rucksack and this has worn away ar the fabric. If your wearing for walking or hiking, I'd consider something more robust. Nice enough if your wanting a coat to just keep you warm, but not if you intend to use it for a active activity. I think I'll get a year out of the cpat before it looks tatty. I have a similar north face product which still looks fine after 6 years. Shame the tab doesn't match up to the north face product.

Rab Alpine Microlight
I bought this jacket to replace my previous down jacket which got stolen from my washing line (still seething - hope they enjoyed their soggy feathers) - anyway the tea-leaf did me a favour, I am now the proud owner of a beautiful eggplant Rab and we are inseparable! It’s lightweight yet warm and whilst a neat fit is still accommodating of additional layers if needed. It’s good quality, robust and smart enough to wear to work etc. As ever, good service from local Go Outdoors. Very happy Rab and GO customer.

Fabulous jacket looks well, warm and comfy. Purchased the Eggplant but decided to return it because the colour differed from how it looked online more of a purple colour and just wasn't for me. Exchanged it for the Blueprint which looks lovely went for a 12 my normal size a good fit. Highly recommend. Thankyou.

Ladies Rab jacket
Bought this for the wife to go to Iceland. In short it does exactly what it says on the tin. Wore it whilst viewing the northern lights at 01:00hrs and still warm. Exceeded all expectations. Yes it’s at the top end in terms of price but still cheaper than anywhere else. But buy once and last years.

My Wife is happy
(Review for older model of this product - Rab Microlight Alpine Women's Jacket)<br />Purchased for my wife, she informs me that:
The jacket is light yet warm. Ideal summer weight.
The lining of the pockets is thin, therefore not ideal for storing items in.

When a new store open in my town I found it was a good offer not to miss A great jacket. A versatile thickness - keeps you warm when it's cold but not too insulating so as to make it impractical in warmer weather. A great all rounder

Great for just every day use but also good on the mountains. As its very light its probably not suitable on its own in the winter.

The only bad thing is that a few of the feathers have started to come out after only a month of having it.

Price match with an additional 10% of finally clinched the deal for me (fantastic offer and service Go Outdoors!). As for the actual jacket, I LOVE IT! It’s light, comfortable and snug, allowing free movement, keeping you warm but does not weigh you down. I tried the jacket on in the longer length before buying but did not feel this added much and preferred the way the standard length looked on me. Stop debating and exhibiting that restraint..... buy the jacket!
