I wear this jacket everywhere! On personal trips climbing and mountaineering, working 2-4 week backcountry courses, ski touring, out on the town… I love that it has a simple, elegant cut AND is super functional. Easy to layer under and over and the length in the sleeves means no chill at the wrist and waist when climbing -or belaying- in the cold. Moldable hood keeps it on but out of the way. Zippered pockets means I don’t lose my wallet and phone.
"Well fitted, nice zip pockets, metal brim hood. Long enough sleeves. You won't look like marshmallow"
At 5'3",105 lbs, most of the American fit down jackets are too wide for me. RAB down has more of a slim fit. It is extremely light weight and is the only down jacket with a light piece of metal along the brim of the hood. It packs up into a tiny ball and is the perfect light weight layer under a shell for snowboarding.
I just bought this coat and I never want to take it off. It is super lightweight and provides a lot of warmth. I've received so many compliments about the fit and color from my family and friends. Rab is a solid company, nice work folks!
"The down jacket for wet environments with an excellent women specific flattering fit!"
Three design features sold me on this jacket.1.) The pertex material makes this down jacket as good as it gets for wet environments. 2.) Fit- This is by far the most flattering women's down jacket out there-curved for a women's body.3.) The wire rim of the hood. This feature serves several functions. It allows you to roll up the jacket into its hood and contain it pretty well for a great backcountry pillow. It also lets you shape the hood or roll it down if you don't need it.Loved this jacket the first two years I had it but now it needs a new zipper. Hopefully Rab is as good about fixing or replacing products as they claim to be.
