Season : AW14

Code : 5004223

Weight : 0KG

The ever popular Generator Jacket has been superseded in the Rab range this Winter (2014) which I'm sure is a disappointment to many.  The good news is we've got a hold of some of the very last Generator Jackets available and we're able to offer them at a great price.

The Generator jacket is simply perfect as a throw on layer for windy lunch stops, as a outer on bitingly cold winter days on the fells or as an insulation layer it under a shell jacket when the weather is at its very worst. It uses Primaloft® One insulation that gives exceptional warmth to its weight and compresses brilliantly too.  The windproof Pertex Quantum® outer is superbly breathable, weighs only 30g per m2, and also dries very fast indeed. The Generator jacket is the logical successor to a traditional fleece jacket, and you can easily understand why its so popular.

    Rab Generator Jacket ,  On

    Slightly different requirement from most here I suspect. I work in West Africa and travel back via a lay-over in Paris and wanted a layer with a small pack size and weight, so Im not lugging a bulky fleece through the airport here but can throw it on over a shirt on arrival. Water resistant means itll do me for the short journey to the carpark too. Lighter and smaller pack size than I expected: bonus. Built for comfort rather than for speed these days the boxy fit designed to go over layers for climbers meant the M was just big enough for me as a 41" chest. L would have meant the sleeves would likely be too long. Great price and fast despatch too. Rated.

    I bought a second jacket as the original was warm (Primaloft, 100gms/m in the body and 60gms/m in the sleeves) and practical owing to its fine design and high quality of manufacture. But this Generator lacks the same fineness of design and manufacture eg 1 there is no fleece lining the front of the collar, reducing its comfort. 2 the side pockets are now higher, vertical and more lateral, making access and removal of hands difficult. These features could prevent rapid removal of the hands, leading to more serious injury from a fall or reduce the possibility a assisting a colleague. 3 the quality of manufacture does appear as good. Its seems as though RAB has changed its Chinese manufacturer. I was disappointed by these retrograded changes.

    With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

    You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!


    With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

    So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

    Estimated Delivery Dates

    Estimated Delivery Dates are given on Pre-Order and Pre-Launch products. They are for indication purposes only and can change at any time without notice.

    The dates we provide are based on indications given by our suppliers. Whenever we get updated information from our suppliers we will endeavour to update the Estimated Delivery Dates provided on product pages.


    Thanks for choosing his item ...
