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
