Full Description

The Rab® Microlight Jacket is a light-weight, weather-resistant down jacket, designed for fast-and-light use in situations where warmth, weight and packability are prime concerns. Revised for Autumn/Winter ’15, the latest variation of the Microlight Jacket features an improved fit and increased packability with the addition of a separate stuff sack.
