Practical mountain features include easy-stretch elasticated armholes, harness-friendly zipped pockets, a drawcord adjustable hem and a close-fitting collar.
They also include a compact stuff sack and a weight of just 317g for the easiest possible carry

Pertex® Quantum Fabric
Precisely constructed from incredibly fine yarns, Pertex® Quantum fabrics are designed to trap still air and improve the efficiency of insulation.
Pertex® Quantum uses a tightly woven structure to provide a light and soft fabric that allows insulation to fully loft
With down proof construction, a DWR finish and soft feel, it's a lightweight and packable windproof fabric offering excellent weather protection
The durable water repellent (DWR) finish sheds light rain and snow to provide additional weather protection.
P.U.R.E Recycled Down
Using recycled down is a sustainable alternative to virgin down and helps reduce their environmental impact.
It means that Rab don’t need to use virgin raw materials and it also helps prevent unnecessary waste going to landfill.
GRS-certified P.U.R.E.® recycled down is used in the Microlight range.
Sorted and graded in Italy before being delivered to Rab, P.U.R.E.® recycled down is currently the only down recycling company to be certified by the Global Recycling Standard.
The team at P.U.R.E.® are experts at reclaiming down from post-consumer waste items like duvets and pillows.
The reclaimed down is sterilised, cleaned, treated with Nikwax® hydrophobic treatment and graded into different qualities and fill powers resulting in the same insulation properties as virgin down.
