Waterproof / Warm / Recycled Down / Winter Use
Updated with 100% recycled down, it’s engineered for everyday use throughout the coldest months
A welcome sanctuary from lashing rain or a flurry of snow, the Valiance Parka 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 optimum 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 its long length and regular fit for throwing on over other layers, the Valiance gives a reassuring, protective feel for striding out on wild winter days
For the climate and evironment:
This product no longer contains fluorocarbons. Whether that’s in a DWR, on the zips, the threads or in the fabric.
Using 100% recycled, high quality down, gives a second chance to down that might otherwise have ended up in landfill
Reducing waste and making the most of this valuable insulation.

Rab Size Guide: These are body measurements, not the measurements of the garments
Regular Fit - Neither slim nor loose. Regular fit items are the perfect balance of form fit and ease of movement
Chest - Measure the full circumference of your chest just below your armpits.
Arm length - Measure from the centre back of your neck to your wrist.
Pertex® Shield fabrics provide lightweight waterproof protection whilst remaining highly breathable.
Nikwax Hydrophobic Down
Down is naturally breathable, which makes it very comfortable to wear, but this comes with a drawback – it can absorb moisture
This moisture can overload the fibres, or cause them to stick together, stripping the down of its insulative properties
To mitigate this effect, Rab apply a Nikwax water repellent “hydrophobic” treatment to the down
This treatment significantly improves the performance of the down by preventing the clusters from absorbing moisture and helping it to retain its loft.
Box-wall garments are made from distinct box-shaped compartments that run horizontally around the body
Because the box-shaped baffles are not pinched at the edges, there is space for the down to fully loft throughout the chamber allowing for an even distribution of down and vastly reducing the likelihood of cold spots
The extra material used to create each box means that these garments are usually heavier and less packable
However, in the most extreme temperatures, they are often the best solution
