Meet the next generation of Rab Microlight jackets Rab’s Microlight jackets have been tried, tested and loved by thousands of mountain enthusiasts for over a decade. Now, it’s time to meet the next generation.
'Every feature and detail of the new Microlight Summit has been scrutinised and designed to ensure it functions seamlessly'
High in the mountains, it offers essential warmth in a practical pack size. Born from the classic Microlight, the Microlight Summit is inspired by capabilities offered by the innovative new Pertex fabric, Quantum Infinity Weave. This technology removes the need for glue, heat and stitching when constructing down baffles inside the garment, increasing weather protection and boosting warmth. Inside, each baffle is filled with the highest-quality 750 fill power ethically-sourced water-resistant down.This allows the Summit to pack down to next to nothing and quickly loft again when needed, even in less favourable conditions.
'Worn as a protective outer, or warm mid-layer in cold conditions, the Microlight Summit is versatile and robust with features honed for alpine environments'
A two-way YKK zip and stretch nylon cuffs make it quick to get on, allowing the jacket to fit comfortably over gloves, and sleeves to be pushed up for temperature regulation. A slightly longer fit in the body, harness-compatible hand pockets, an insulated zip baffle and chin guard all maximise warmth when stationary. Then if conditions worsen, a helmet compatible hood with an internal stretch gaiter protects from wind and improves the fit around your face, both with and without a helmet.
We recently featured a Rab Window focusing on layering. Our windows are put together by Sue Storer.. the message was 'Dark Skies, High Spirits' featuring insulations layers for all types of winter activities.
