Rab Mens Valiance Jacket - Graphene

Season:SS24

Brand:RAB

Code:QDB-49-GRH

A welcome sanctuary from lashing rain or a flurry of snow, the Valiance Jacket is warm and waterproof, designed for everyday use and wild winter walking days.

Built with durable, waterproof Pertex® Shield outer and taped seams, the Valiance offers reliable protection beneath the darkest skies. The narrow bonded boxwall construction stabilises the down and allows it to fully loft, trapping the maximum amount of air for warmth. For added durability, lower bulk, and better moisture management, the cuffs and hood are insulated with fast drying, synthetic Stratus™ insulation.

When the cuffs are cinched in with the hook and loop tabs, the synthetic insulation keeps performing. With a longer length at the back and regular fit for throwing on over other layers, the Valiance gives a reassuring, protective feel for striding out on wild winter days.

Features:

  • Fit: Regular
  • Insulation Type: Main Insulation: 700FP Recycled Down with Nikwax Fluorocarbon-Free Hydrophobic Finish (205g/7.2oz Size M)
  • Weight: 753g/26.5oz (Size M)
  • Product Code: QDB-49
  • Pertex® Shield fully taped waterproof outer
  • Bonded narrow box wall construction for reduced weight and bulk
  • 2-way adjustable Stratus™ synthetic insulation fill hood with wired peak
  • YKK® VISLON® front zip with internal zip baffle
  • 2 YKK® AquaGuard® zipped hand warmer pockets
  • 1 YKK® zipped internal security pocket
  • Stratus™ synthetic insulation filled slimline cuffs with hook and loop adjustability
  • Dual sided rear adjustment and dropped hem improves warmth on lower back
Buyers Guide - How to choose an Insulated Jacket

Everyone knows that to keep warm you need to insulate yourself from the cold.
THE most effective insulator is air, more importantly – dry air.
The more dry air you can trap against your body the warmer you will feel. However, air that contains moisture from sweat or rain will not insulate anywhere near as effectively so the layers you wear with your insulated jacket are critical to how it will perform. But how do you choose which one is right for you?


- What is the difference between down and synthetic?
- Why aren’t insulated jackets usually waterproof?
- Can you get water resistant down?
- How do the baffles work?
- How do I know how warm a jacket will be?
- Why do I need to think about how the hood fits?
- Why should I not buy a cheap down jacket?
- Can I buy a recycled down garment?
- How do I wash an insulated jacket?



Top tips to make the right choice:

Wearing cotton layers underneath your insulated jacket may well lock in sweat making you feel damp and therefore cold. They definitely work best with wicking layers underneath.

Check what the outer fabric is made of as some insulated jackets are designed to allow air through so they can work more efficiently in a layering system. If you are wanting an “outer” jacket then look for one with a windproof outer fabric.

If pack size is important then down garments will always pack smaller than a synthetic jacket of the same weight.

  • Rab Mens Valiance Jacket - Graphene review by Will Davis, on 26/02/2024

    Really nice comfy jacket, warm, waterproof and a good fit for me. Downsides are 1) I would like more pockets, 2) pit-zips would be handy, 3) grey was the available colour that I preferred with the orange lining, but Im concerned that on a road in winter this is the perfect camouflage! I want to be seen, so I might need to add some reflective strips. I saw on the Rab website a blue/grey version with a green lining, but I couldnt find that to buy anywhere.

    Appears to come up a little on the smaller size across the chest (or I measured myself wrongly). I normally select a small, which works for other Rab down jackets I have, but small on this is a snug fit and medium is better for me. The outer shell seems sturdy, everything works as it should and the box wall filling is much better than the stitch through. Overall, Im pleased as it is properly waterproof and the pockets dont let any rain in.
