Offering reliable, instant warmth and working hard to regulate temperature when output increases, the women's Xenair Alpine is an adaptable synthetic insulated hoody, perfect for alpine adventures on foot or skis
Built with a lightweight Pertex® Quantum Air outer the jacket is highly breathable and weather resistant
It is insulated with two densities of recycled PrimaLoft® Gold Active+ insulation, strategically body mapped to provide warmth where you need it and breathability in high heat areas
This effectively regulates temperature when the incline steepens or the temperature drops, maintaining warmth when static and increasing airflow on the move.
In addition to packability and warmth, the Xenair Alpine boasts a full alpine feature set
It has an insulated, helmet-compatible hood with a semi-elasticated face opening and rear adjustment
Sleeves are articulated for mobility with elasticated gussets at the cuff for a seamless fit with gloves.
The Xenair Alpine jacket has a two-way YKK® VISLON® front zip which allows for easy belaying, with an insulated zip baffle and a comfortable chin guard.
Negating the need to change layers and providing warmth when you need it most, the Xenair Alpine is an intelligent, hardworking layer ideal for fast and light alpinism, mountaineering and climbing in winter conditions

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.
The more openly woven structure of Quantum Air fabrics allows airflow through the fabric, which helps to regulate your body heat and keep you comfortable for longer.
Pertex Quantum Air, is engineered with increased air permeability to provide a balance between wind resistance and breathability
This balance of air permeability and wind resistance means Pertex® Quantum Air fabrics are perfectly suited to intense mountain pursuits.
A durable water repellent (DWR) finish sheds light rain and snow to provide additional weather protection.
- Higher air permeability
- Increased breathability
- Weather protection for intense activity
PrimaLoft Gold Insulation Active+ is a breathable insulation which contains 55% post-consumer recycled material
This innovation uses a special fibre structure, allowing clothing designers to use highly breathable linings and outer fabrics for better moisture management and comfort, without compromising on thermal performance
Millions of air chambers in the microfibre trap body heat to provide superior warmth in cold weather conditions
The permanently water-repellent finish is designed to ensure perfect warmth even when wet
The extremely soft and lightweight insulation is highly compressible, fitting neatly into backpacks, ready for any activity
With its optimal thermal efficiency, PrimaLoft Gold Insulation Active+ can be worn all year long, eliminating the need for repeatedly putting on or taking off layers during outdoor activities, allowing users to remain completely focused on their experience
Body Mapping Technology
Think of your body like a mountain landscape. Different zones have varying temperatures. Moisture accumulates in specific locations. The weather impacts exposed areas more harshly
When RAB map fabric or insulation to different areas of a garment, it’s like considering the different environments on a mountain
They choose specific fabrics or insulation weights to deal with the precise conditions at that location on the body
The result is a garment that responds effectively to body activity. Making it more efficient and comfortable to wear, specific to function and environment
