    In search of a lightweight down gilet for mountain, town and trail?
    With recycled construction and body-mapped baffles, Rab's best-selling Women’s Microlight Vest is more effective than ever.
    This classic Women’s Microlight Vest has been brought up to date with a slick new design aesthetic and some carefully selected upgrades
    At just 259g, it retains outstanding packability but, from the 30D Pertex® Quantum ripstop nylon shell to the 20D lining and the GRS-certified 700FP P.U.R.E down, the fabrics and down are now fully recycled
    The new design also features ‘intelligent’ insulation
    The zoning of micro and nano baffles helps put the down where it’s needed, reducing migration and improving warmth, without wasting weight, adding bulk or restricting movement
    Ideal for both everyday insulation and mountain layering, ascent-ready features include a weather-resistant DWR coating, two large harness-friendly zipped hand pockets, a warm down-filled collar and a drawcord-adjustable hem.
    The new Women’s Microlight Vest delivers an appealing combination of low weight, core warmth and easy movement for a rapid insulation boost whenever it’s needed.
    Whether you want casual everyday warmth or a flexible mountain mid-layer, the Microlight Vest is down insulation at its most accessible.

    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.
