To the untrained eye, changes are subtle. However, on closer inspection, you can see a decade of evolution. Refinements here, tweaks there - Rab's perfectionism shows. This year they have deconstructed, analysed and carefully rebuilt the Microlight, scrutinising every tiny detail.

The Rab Microlight Alpine Jacket is the lightweight down jacket you can take anywhere, designed for use in situations where warmth, weight and packability are prime concerns.
Constructed with Pertex® Quantum outer fabric, the Microlight Alpine is windproof and breathable, using 750 fill power ethically-sourced hydrophobic down to provide exceptional warmth without compromising on weight.
Features include an adjustable hood with laminated brim and flexible polymer peak, diverted hood baffle lines for an anatomical fit, and clean finish elasticated cuff construction. Two harness-compatible hand pockets and a chest pocket provide easy access to storage. Highly compressible, the Microlight Alpine Jacket comes with a stuff sack which can be clipped to a harness or backpack.

Inspired by decades of experience in the mountains and a decade in production, the Rab Microlight Alpine is refined, resilient, and iconic: perfect for any adventure.
