Quantum Airis 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.

- 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
