Another week at this time of year means more new arrivals, this time it’s our Rab stuff which is (mostly) here! There are quite a few new bits this year so here are some highlights from the range. You can view the entire range here.
The Zero G Jacket. An amazingly light yet warm down jacket featuring the best 1000FP down, including in the hood, contained in stitch through baffles for the absolute best in heat retention. A light weight outer fabric keeps it super packable. At just 310g the warmth to weight ratio of this jacket is unbelievable. Due in stock towards the end of September and available to backorder now.
Another new one from Rab the Upslope Jacket is a 2 layer winter softshell which will provide great protection from the weather and breathe easily to keep you comfortable. Although it’s been designed with the skier in mind the Upslope will make a great alpine and winter mountaineering.
The Alpha Direct Jacket is the next incarnation in the relatively new Active Insulation range. It uses Direct technology to increase breathability over previous jackets featuring Alpha insulation as this new technology allows the Alpha to be used without a liner. A great jacket for working hard in cold weather. Also available is the Womens Alpha Direct Jacket.
Using Cirrus insulation the Altus Vest is designed to provide that extra bit of warmth in cold, damp or changeable conditions. Although Cirrus isn’t new this year it’s still at the cutting edge of performance for breathability and warmth when wet.
The Spire pants are a tough softshell trouser for year round Alpine and mountaineering use. Tough Matrix double weave stretch fabric with reinforcement in key areas means they won’t get destroyed on tough routes. A removable webbing belt and attachment points for braces and under boot straps make them flexible enough for almost any ambition.
The Alliance Mitt is a modular Mitt/Glove combo with an outer mitt for the best protection and an inner glove for the best warmth and improved dexterity over a full on mitt. This also means you get 2 for 1 as the outer and inner can each be used independently depending on your needs. Also available as the Alliance Glove.
